When Tina’s Noodle Kitchen first opened, what caught my attention was the retractable belt barrier positioned in front of the place to control the crowds. I’ve eaten here a few times since then and this is what I know:
- This place only serves noodles but the noodles are consistently good and very filling.
- The 150°C bowls mean that the noodles arrive burning hot and remain that way for a quite while, so take your time eating otherwise you will leave with a burnt tongue.
- Orders need to be made at the counter before you sit down.
- Service is variable.
- If you look Asian or anything slightly Asian, expect to be spoken to in mandarin.
In any case, Tina’s Noodle Kitchen is a good place to head to the next time you are in the mood for a satisfying bowl of noodles.
