“Great Chinese Food”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

Situated in the Bowling Alley at Zayed Sports City, I expected this place to be not much better than the fast food outlets. How wrong I was! Quite small but nice atmosphere inside and service was quick and efficient. Menu extensive with a Dim Sum selection that I will try for sure next time. Quite busy with Far Eastern ex-pats, and I guess that was a good sign.

We had sesame prawn toast starter and it was the best ever! The rest of the dishes were all excellent and very tasty, especially the braised beef noodles, and this has to be one of the best Chinese restaurants around.

Prices reasonable too, with most dishes in the 25 to 35 Dhm range. As with many non-hotel restaurants there is no alcohol, but that wasn't an issue for us and I will be going back for sure. And quite soon too.

Note that credit cards not accepted - cash only. There is an ATM in the entrance to the Bowling Centre.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

The food is good. But the service is slow :) It takes too long to get any item on the menu
I like their menu, but they should add more

“Nice little Hidden gem.”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Extensive menu and great service. Had a lovely dinner here and must say I will be back again. Loved the spring rolls and the beef with broccoli. Good all round inexpensive restaurant, not somewhere you would go for a romantic dinner but if your hungary and want some lovely asian dishes then give the Noodle Bowl a go.

“Good food, definete improvement from last time we were there!”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

Always a good sign walking into an oriental restaurant to see plenty of oriental customers! Its clean, tastefully decorated and our guest seemed pleased with our choice. The restaurant wasnt busy as it was 7 in the evening on the 1st night of Eid. The extensive menu is always a little overbearing but I think we chose well, enjoying Buns,dim sum, prawn toast and vegetable pancake rolls to start. Followed by mains of chicken/sweetcorn soup,2 x beef noodles (rather dry and bland and too many lumps of ginger for my liking) and pad thai which was good but not spicy enough even though we stated spicy! Overall the starters and soup were excellent, everthing was piping hot and the service was excellent and good value for money.......with food and drinks for 4 it was just over 200dhs. However, we have previously been here on a Thursday night when the rugby training has been on, and the service was non existent and the staff couldnt cope. Fingers crossed they have rectified this and we would definetely return with guests.
