Memphis Nosh: Noodles Asian Bistro

I don't like Asian food. 


I don't like Chinese food. Or Thai food. Or Japanese food. Or Korean food. Or the Americanized version of any of these.

I don't like it at all.

I LOVE it.

Despite not being exposed to any Asian food, not even a Chinese buffet, until I was probably 18, and not having sushi until I was 21 or so, I fell in love. Now I want to try everything!

Memphis, interestingly, has some really great options for both authentic dishes and more Americanized "classics." I've already talked about my love of Mosa, I adore Sekisui, and I order from Mulan an embarrassing amount. But when I saw a place I had never been before, Noodles Asian Bistro in Germantown, I knew I had to try it!

A few weeks ago, my friend Kayla and I decided to check it out. She had been to the location in Bartlett, but neither of us had been to the Germantown location. 

The menu is huge:

(Via the Noodles website - also, SmallPDF is the best PDF to JPEG program out there y'all!)

So the entire menu looks amazing. But.

There's a secret.

Noodles also has fantastic specials:



Choice of a Rice Dish or Noodle Dish served with a complimentary Ginger Salad and a Shanghai Roll. No Dish Substitutions for Daily Specials. No other discounts can be applied to the Daily Specials.


  • - General Tso's Chicken (includes a side of white, brown, or fried rice) 
  • - Pad Thai Chicken


  • - Thai Mango Chicken (includes a side of white, brown, or fried rice)
  • - Chinese Low Mein Chicken


  • - Sweet & Sour Chicken (choice of rice)
  • - Vietnamese Noodle Soup with Beef


  • - Honey Seared Chicken (includes a side of white, brown, or fried rice)
  • - Japanese Udon with Beef


  • - Mongolian Beef (choice of rice)
  • - Singapore Street Noodles with Chicken


  • - Sesame Chicken (includes a side of white, brown, or fried rice)
  • - Korean Spicy Noodles with Vegetables and Tofu


  • - Chinese Teriyaki Chicken (includes a side of white, brown, or fried rice)
  • - Hong Kong Chow-Fun with Chicken

I got the Honey Seared Chicken, so for $8 I got the chicken, fried rice, a salad, and a Shanghai Roll (like an egg roll and a spring roll had a baby). EIGHT DOLLARS PEOPLE.

And it was all fantastic.

(This salad was great, even if it didn't photograph well!)

What you can't see here is how freaking huge this plate is. I had enough food left over for two more helpings later. 


They also have an authentic Chinese and Dim Sum menu, bubble teas, and they do catering.

Our server was super nice and attentive, and, although they weren't really busy in the dining room, a ton of people were getting takeout while we were there, so that's an option too!

If you like any of the specials and happen to be free, or just want some solid Asian food in a cute location in Germantown (or Bartlett - the Bartlett one has sushi!), Noodles is the place to go!
