Cantonese Noodle in Newton

Today, my badminton teammies and I really craved for Cantonese noodles, and really wanted to explore one new restaurant that we have never been to, so we decided to try this noodle house—No.1 Noodle House, located at 51 Langley Road, Newton Center, MA 02459.

It is petite noodle house, nothing fancy about it. Like in a fast-food place, we ordered our noodles at the counter, and grabbed chopsticks and napkins by ourselves, but the only difference was that our waitress brought the dishes to our table. The owner and most of the staff are friendly Cantonese people.

I really recommend their Laksa, which is coconut milk and curry noodle soup. We ordered two Laksa—Seafood Laksa and B.B.Q. Pork Laksa. The noodle soup is a perfect combination of slightly sweet coconut milk and mild spicy curry. Yummy!

I don’t recommend any of their Stir Fried Noodles. We order two of them—Beef Stir Fried Noodle and Seafood Stir Fried Noodle, both of which were dry and had plain flavors…

  1. A co-worker turned me on to this place earlier this week. He raved about the seafood soups. He was right. Yummy! Have not tried the fried noodle dishes, but may now avoid them because of your warning.

  2. Seriously, Jim, don't ever order their fried noodle (unless they improve), not Cantonese at all. Will keep you posted if I found any decent place with good fried noodle :)

  3. Thank you for sharing. Everything looks delicious! I live in the area and will definitely be checking out No. 1 Noodle House. You should try Justine’s Table, what I like to consider the best restaurant in Newton, MA.
