We thoroughly enjoyed our meals at Jinling Noodle Bar. We both had the Mixed Vegetable Crispy Fried Noodles and some Vegetarian Spring Rolls. The servings were so generous that I couldn't finish my main course and passed it off to my partner to finish. I found the restaurant to be comfortable and clean with a friendly and helpful staff. If we're ever back in Cambridge, we'll definitely go back.

Had a Friday night tea here. Food was good and generous portions but I just felt the place was't the cleanest. The lady that served us had her coat on the whole time whilst serving.
Seemed very popular with the Chinese.
Don't think I would return.

We love the brisket udon soup here - it's really delicious. Service is a bit hit-or-miss, but it's always full of big tables of families, enjoying lunch.

Popped into Jinling Noodle Bar for lunch with a friend that has dined there regularly with his Malaysian wife. My first visit so no preconceptions. Service was very efficient and the staff friendly. I opted for an squid starter (very good!) and udon stew main course. The noodle main course was nothing special but a large portion of noodles together with an assortment of meats. the food was prepared and presented very well.
The restaurant is well situated in the centre of Cambridge close to the market square and I thought prices were very reasonable considering its position. Atmosphere was ok and had a good standard of cleanliness. I would certainly choose to eat there again.

Contrary to popular belief, the local Chinese community do not eat here. Just seeing hordes of Chinese faces does not constitute knowing why they are there, however, understanding Mandarin enables one to overhear the fact that the restaurant has a contract with a tour company which fills the place a coach-load at a time.

If you catch it at the wrong time it can be bedlam...and don't even let me get started with the state of the toilets!

On to the food; it is average at best. Nowhere near on a par with Dojo or Yippee.

Decent sized portions of rather bland soup with plenty of noodles and a fair amount of chewy beef was on offer the last time I dared give it a go. To be honest it was a toss-up between this and Yo!Sushi, Jinling won and to be fair if I was in the same situation again I would probably brave the toilets in favour of Jinling.
