Need recs for a girls weekend... Indian, Italian, Best noodle bowls in Chinatown

We are visiting the city in May and staying in Soho. We would really like to find a Indian and Italian restaurant in the Soho or Greenwich area. We would like to spend 10-18$ a plate and would love a place with outdoor seating. Also I am still searching for the best place to get a noodle bowl in Chinatown! So would love to hear some opinions please! Thank you!

  1. What kind of noodle bowl are you looking for? Big Wong King makes my favorite wonton soup (definitely splurge for the roasted pork or duck--total delicious decadence for $6). NY Noodletown's wonton soup is also very good, plus I love their Singapore chow fun (definitely go chow fun not mai fun, and you can ask for it spicy) if you want noodles not in soup. Chinatown isn't as strong for Vietnamese, but the best pho I've had is generally Xe Lau's house pho (although I do ask them to hold the tripe).

    Sorry, but I know less about your other requests.

    1. if you don't mind getting down and dirty, Bo Ky has a great range of noodle soup offerings and with relatively low prices, you could order more bowls of noodles than the number of people in your party and really get a good selection.

      there is also great noodles to be found at Tasty Hand Pulled Noodle which is at 1 Doyers street (you just gotta find it, it's right off of bowery) which is smaller but just as elementary; really good combo noodle soup but this is a big one so no sharing; one per person!
