Noodle Concept - Where are you?!

Noodle Concept in the Adelaide Centre has been closed for over a month!

NC's pho was the best thing I've found in the downtown core that is the closest thing to authentic pho. I used to go at least once a week, sometimes twice and I work near Union.

Thai Island pho isnt even close to the same taste as NC's.

I'm so sad.... my fav joint is closed. If anyone knows what happened to it let me know, I've already ruled out health inspection shut them down since the place would have been plastered with a huge poster stating their grade.

    Big loss imo, but judging from the responses to date....not sure too many other CH'ers care.

      It's unfortunate. I just find it kind of odd, because I went the Friday before the closed up shop on the following Monday. I didn't see any indications that they would be closed.

      I've already lost two bets to co-workers that they'd be open, 2nd week and again yestreday. I had to buy lunch for him :( I guess they're closed for good.

    2. I care!!! I loved Noodle Concept too! I used to work at Adelaide and University and there was a time I went everyday for my delicious soup! Now I'm at King/Bay and decided to take a walk up there for my favourite Pho and it was shut up tight! So disappointing! It was always busy so I don't understand either... Bring it back!!!

      1. So is it open again yet? I haven't ventured up there for a while... soooooo craving pho!!! Thai island sucks ass! Thai express is ok, but just doesn't do it for me like NC... any word?!?!?!?!

        1. Ok, I did some investigating... so sad!!! A guy at the Starbucks across the food court from NC told me that their contract expired and the porperty management wouldn't renew because they're going to be doing major renovations... so I guess everyone is getting pushed out of there eventually...
          No more Noodle Concept.... BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Thx for your investigation work...I feel your pain. While I have not tried it yet, there is a pho place at the Village on the Grange food court (near Manpuku) that looks interesting enough.....has anyone tried it?
