Chinese Noodle House

A banging BYO diner at Prince Trade Centre.

Another in the series of budget-friendly dumpling joints within the Prince Centre, Chinese Noodle House sits just across the way from Chinese Noodle Restaurant, both luring you in with their 'grapes on the roof'. Similar to its neighbour, it's the plates and baskets of dumplings that attract the crowds, and while some love the sticky special braised eggplant at Noodle Restaurant, others prefer the crispier fried version here.

Beyond the beloved doughy parcels, you can dig into bowls of house-made noodles in a huge selection of broths, fried noodles and all the garlic and fish sauce-covered Chinese broccoli you can manage.

The restaurant has also expanded in recent years to include a number of outdoor dining tables, meaning you won't have to push and shove for a seat any longer. Getting the attention of a waiter is not always easy, but with plenty to keep you distracted around Haymarket, you won't be sitting there bored. 

We recommend a serving of pork dumplings, braised eggplants, flat noodles and salt and pepper squid. The food is consistent at Chinese Noodle House and is always delicious. One of the best things about the restaurant is that it's BYO, so head on over to Market City beforehand and grab a couple of long necks or a bottle of hearty red and give in to the excesses of Chinatown.
