This is my favorite spot for noodles in Pittsburgh. Super casual, no reservations, yummy noodles and BYOB! To start we had the Pork Belly Steam Buns. You must try these. They are so soft and flavorful. My favorite noodle dishes are the Kee Mao with...More

This tiny out of the way eatery is a hidden gem. No phone, no reservations, and cash only, it has a simple menu with good food and good prices. A big plus for us, as vegans, is that the menu items were available with tofu...More

The food is excellent with a great variety of "noodle" dishes. Service is fast, especially considering it was very busy, and the price is reasonable. Obviously a popular spot, which makes it a bit noisy. Keep in mind they don't take credit cards.

Noodlehead has a short menu, so if you are looking to impress someone, this is not the place. The food is tasty and the flavors are clean. I personally love the pretty arrangement of plants just inside the entrance, as well as the solid wooden...More

For an appetizer we had the spring rolls which were nice and crunchy with a tasty dipping sauce. For main dishes we had street noodle 1 and pad thai. They were very satisfying, flavorful dishes and we all 4 thought that #1 in heat was...More
