To be PNS Noddle Shop or Penny's Noodles, that is the question? And it depends on who you ask. All I can say is that the sign says PNS Noodle Shop, along with the website, but we had a hard time getting a straight answer...More

I love this little place for lunch! The food tastes extra fresh, and seems healthier than other options. I always get the same chicken curry dish because it's amazing. Basic atmosphere, a little tight, but worth it.

Always looking for good Asian food. This place wasn't so good. Haven't been back and probably never will.

When I make plans to lunch with friends, this is my go-to spot. The food is consistently good, the jasmine tea is soothing (with minimum caffeine), the room is clean and bright and the bill is modest.

We came here because I had a pad thai craving... Penny cured it! But not necessarily in a good way. I actually really didn't like Penny's pad thai-- it was way too dry, too flavorless, didn't have enough peanuts or enough egg... Just not good....More
