Whichever branch of this smart-casual pan-Asian chain you visit, whether for lunch or dinner, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be busy – and rightly so. Serving up a reasonably short, but consistent menu of Far Eastern favourites, such as pad Thai, laksa and dumplings, to name but a few, The Noodle House has established itself as a reliable midrange restaurant for those who want good quality produce with an authentic level of spice (when they put two chillies next to a menu item, they mean it). Order almost anything from the restaurant’s menu, which requires diners to tick the boxes next to the dishes they’d like to order, and you’re unlikely to be disappointed – we particularly recommend the Thai beef salad if you fancy something a bit lighter, and the Thai-style chilli prawns, in a rich, spicy sauce if you appreciate your lunch with a fragrant kick. A good spot for casual, if not budget, Far Eastern fare.
Open daily 11am-midnight. Gloria Hotel, Dubai Media City (04 381 8065). Other locations: BurJuman, The Dubai Mall, DIFC, Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Emirates Towers.
