One word WOW! Great value and authenticity! The Dan Dan noodle is to die for and all the dumplings and wontons are heavenly! Can be extremely spicy but they can alter to your preference. Often a queue out the door and now I know why! Here for the food, don't expect fine dining service and or surrounds.

Want something really hot and spicy? This is the place where all menus can be made hot and spicy. From wonton, noddle, stir fry, soup, you name it, all are hot and spicy, and you can choose level of spiciness, from medium, hot to super-hot. Long queue outside and full house inside, this is the daily situation. Be patient for yummy and spicy noddle.

Myself and my fiancée visited this place, drawn in by the fact there is always a queue out the door anytime we pass. It's not a fancy affair with a quick table wipe down (if you manage to get one) but that's not the point. The food is authentic and tasty. There's a guy making the dumplings just left of the entrance, and they are delicious and juicy. Will be back!

Have been here many times. A wonderful local spot that almost constantly has a line out the door. The inner dining space is small, but turnover time is reasonable.

The food here is impeccable: the dumplings are handmade by the front door as you order and as you approach the register, you can glimpse customer's bowls filled with tasty, colorful, texturally-enticing delights. The noodles have never disappointed- the handmade noodles are worth the extra cost if you want to try something new ($2), and leftover broth can be taken home to turn a ordinary weeknight package of ramen noodles into a spectacular low-cost meal. Shout out to the house dan dan noodles, cold pork noodles in garlic sauce, and the sad cold noodles! The only menu item I haven't been thrilled with are the vegetarian noodles (last item). Have tried to order the braised pork noodles multiple times, but they're always out... must be delightful! The heat here is intense.... an avid spice-lover from near the Sonoran Desert, I have never had an Eden Noodle meal without crying from the heat (which is just how I like it!) The Chinese pita bread is an interesting fusion- spiced beef was outrageous with piquant chili and garlic flavors dominating the filling.

Best of all, everything is reasonably priced and will fill even the most bottomless of stomachs (contrariwise, you can stretch one XL dish into two meals). Can have a complete meal for four people on less than $50.

Highly recommend! Can't wait to go back.

Have been past this place many times and everytime i went past its full so I thought I'll give it a try..... and I'm really glad I did.

While the shop is small the actual turn over of pple is frequent so dont be put off with the queues out the door .

I started with the spicy cucumber salad then Dan dan noodles and then onto the dumpings.. yum.. its so tasty and delicious.

Tip.. they hand make their own noodles so ask for them as its only $1.50 extra for amazing goodness.

You also just have to remember you are there for the food and not the service as its abrupt and short.

I'd recommend you visit if you want great authentic noodles and dumplings.
