“Slow service and terrible food”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Wow. This place is terrible.
Ordered some noodles for a takeaway lunch - 25 mins to cook Singapore noodles?
And it's probably been the worst food I've had in Cairns in the 3 months that I have been here.
Not much else to say, just bad.

“Sensational”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here today with 2 friends from out of town. I had the nasi goreng and it was to die for. I haven't been here for years, but since it was our old hangout spot, I jumped at the chance to go back. It did not disappoint and I will definitely return!

“Great Noodle Bar”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

Often when I don't have time to go to the seafood restaurant of cafe china I go to the noodle bar. It feels inspired by the Hong Kong noodle bar chain "Maximes". At the end of the day you get a cooked from scratch meal for very reasonable price and tastes great, sure it's not the same as the main restaurant but hey still great food, great value and it's liceneced for alcohol, definitely worth trying a lot of their dishes you won't be disappointed.

“Tasty noodles & laksa”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

We found a lot of local people eating inside this restaurant during the lunch time, the clean & fresh food displace attract us to have a try. Dumpling noodle & duck laksa are tasty! The Char Kwei Teow is fabulous with a lot of ingredients! The chili sauces provided are very good & tasty too! It is so value for money!
