Noodle Factory (CLOSED)

Noodle Factory,  a little eatery next door to the popular Sushi Suma on Cleveland Street serves up some simple but good dishes. 

The decor, like its dishes, is very simple, wooden tables and stools and a long cushioned banquette runs along the wall on one side of the restaurant. What stood out are the lanterns hanging off the ceiling, they come in different colours, shapes and sizes, with a massive cluster of them hanging just above the register. 

The menu is a mix of Asian dishes, including Thai, Chinese and Malaysian. Since we were only after a quick dinner we ordered two dishes to share.  

The Noodle Factory Hot Dish (thin egg noodles, wok tossed, with beef, chicken, roast pork and fresh seasonal vegetales in a Thai chilli sauce) can be served mild, medium or hot. Being on the cautious side we asked for 'mild', but it turns out the kitchen uses sweet chilli sauce so there wasn't much of a bite to the dish, perhaps 'hot' is the way to go? 

Noodle Factory Hot Dish & Sambal Fried Rice
Even though I'm not a big fan of fried rice, I rather enjoyed the Sambal Fried Rice (Malaysian style rice with chicken, carrots, onion, spring onion, peas and fresh seasonal vegetables in sambal sauce). The chicken was tender and the vegetables were crisp and delightful.  

The service was quick and friendly but it was hard to judge the speed of the kitchen as it appears we caught them on a quiet evening, there was only one other table in use while we were there.

There is nothing fancy about Noodle Factory, it's simply a good little place to satisfy your noodle or rice cravings whether you choose to dine in or take away.
