Very noisy, small cheap restaurant in OB. Food is okay. Server was fair but got the order wrong. There is usually a wait to get in. This place just doesn't do it for me so I won't be back.

My fiance and I took a trip to San Diego for a vacation/birthday trip. We had seen OB Noodle House on Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives [Guy Fieri's show] and the fried rice had caught our eye. My fiance really wanted to try this place out so this was the first place we went to. This was a Saturday and I... More

Hands down one of my favorite places in OB. It is family owned and the family works along side their employees to ensure it is a great place. There is not a bad thing on the menu, best pho in town and my favorite pan fried noodles are here, the sauce is unlike anything else. The flavored sakes are the... More

I think I may the only person to say something negative here, but honestly my server was not very attentive from not refilling our drinks to the point of not giving back my credit card at the end of the night. I saw several people waving the servers down all night and having to ask for checks etc... For a... More

Can't say enough good things about the wings! Dry on the outside (naked, no sauce), moist on the inside, perfectly seasoned. The cook is perfect: crispy; skin perfectly rendered - no chewiness; meat comes of the bone cleanly. Of the many wings that I have eaten in the last thirty years of adulthood, these may be the best, sorry Anchor... More

Yesterday I called in a very large order and wow the speed of the kitchen was unbelievable. I live approximately 15 minutes away from the OB Noodle House on cable street. With traffic hour, I thought I would arrive with my food already cold. However, due to the excellent and hard working staff, the food was ready in 5 minutes.... More

I went here because I had seen it on diners, drive-ins and dives. It was really great food, we had lettuce chicken wraps, seafood PHO and house fried rice, price was very reasonable.

Atmosphere and food is amazing! We tried the Vietnamese spring rolls and chicken dumplings for apps...both great. I had the #45 dry noodle chicken and it was also amazing.
