This is a regular stop for my wife and I whenever we are in the neighborhood - we make plenty of special trips as well. Great fresh noodles, Pho and other Asian dishes. The house special fried rice is tremendous and a must order on every visit. The beer list is one of the best in San Diego and the... More

30 min after ordering no food . People that came in after us where almost done eating. I asked for it to go. Still 8 more minutes & nothing . That was bad. But the terrible part was when I asked to cancel order, the waiter took my card from the table and proceeded to the cashier. This waiter then... More

This is a young person's hangout, but don't let that stop you. The beer selection was fantastic. We asked the hostess what she recommended, and she said the chicken wings and the sizzling fish. They were both incredible. All of the dishes on neighboring tables also looked great. I will return as soon as I can.

I've been in this place many times with my friends and my husband.. I like the friendly atmosphere! My favorite, talking about the food still the old noodle house but on the other hand the new one has a really cool patio. Always greater music, service and great selection of beer! Could be better the wine one! Fried rice, noodles... More

Went for a solo dinner, ordered some pho and had a great beer recommended by the bar tender. The food was amazing, the service was great and the staff friendly! I would definitely go back!

I was so happy we were able to fit a visit with friends to the OB Noodle House. It's been awhile since I've been here. Again the food was awesome! We ordered the famous buffalo wings, a pork belly taco, pho, and the house special fried rice. All of which I would order again. I haven't had anything here that... More

stopped here on a whim during a recent vacation to san diego, very pleasantly surprised. our waiter was attentive, helpful, and had a sense of humor, the food came quick and was among some of the better food we had while there, certainly better than some of the "upper scale" restaurants we visited in the gaslight district.

We visited OB Noodle House for lunch because it was featured on one of the 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' episodes. The wait line was long (over an hour wait). We stopped by Te Mana Cafe, which was a short walk, for coffee and smoothies while we waited. And it was worth the wait. The food and service were both excellent.... More

Food was ok, average at it's best. Service was good but when we paid the waitress didn't return our change, giving herself a 33% tip. She was too busy for us to catch her eye and as it was only a $30 meal and she took $40 and there was a crowd loitering behind us waiting for our seats so... More

Immediately greeted. Their was a slight wait if you wanted to sit indoors but we sat outside. Heaters were on so you were never cold. Good customer service. Food was delicious. Peanut Butter Jamerson shot was delicious. Highly recommend this place.
