Chanoodle...any good?

Pass by this restaurant many times, and I wonder if anyone has any opinions. TIA

  1. Easy to forget about this place since it's not on the same path as most of the Chinatown restaurants discussed on this board. I think it's pretty good, and was particularly impressed by their flounder and tofu casserole.

    1. I think the softshell crabs at Chanoodle are as good as those at Cantoon Garden and I think it is a prettier place. Keep meaning to get back there and chew around the menu a little more.

      1. just to let anyone know . . chanoodle is closed, and has been replaced by a Ten Ren tea parlor. I never had the chance to sample their twin sausage fried rice or any of the other goodies mentioned here in CH. ah well.

          Chan noodle is still around. It's on mulberry st. The ten ren is on mott. I didn't particularly liked chan noodle the times I went in. They tend to over breadcrumb their fried foods. :( But then again during the taste of chinatown tour , their samplings were alright. I probably ordered badly.

            wow really? funny . . . we ended up eating at amazing 66 instead and probably spent at least 5x what we would've spent at chanoodle but . . . it was worth it. I'll have to make the trip there sometime.

        2. I ate at Chanoodle ONCE only. Nuff said.
