Noodle Talk to open in Los Altos

Uploaded: Aug 12, 2016
A Sunnyvale Chinese restaurant called Noodle Talk looks to be opening a second location at Village Court Shopping Center in Los Altos.

New signage and a "coming soon" banner appeared several weeks ago in the space recently vacated by Oregano’s Wood-Fired Pizza at the 4546 El Camino Real shopping center. The owner of Noodle Talk could not be immediately reached for comment.

The Sunnyvale Noodle Talk, which opened in 2015, serves a range of noodle soups (beef stew, spicy beef shank, spicy ground pork with sour beans, beef tendon, seafood and more) and noodle stir-fries (pork with green pepper, eggs and Hunan chili, cold veggie rice noodle) as well as rice platters with meat and other Chinese dishes, according to a menu posted on Yelp. The soup is made with beef bones and 24 different types of herbs, and the rice noodles are handmade, according to the restaurant’s website. They also use all-natural ingredients — "less oil less salt no MSG," the website states.

The website further describes the food: "Experiencing dishes in mom's kitchen. Homeland taste! Highest quality."

Stay tuned for opening details.

Oregano's pizza was not very good, especially with so many other pizza places in the area. This new handmade noodle place sounds interesting.

Very nice, that semi-abandoned "shopping center" needs at least one decent restaurant! And I hope it gives the Dong Lai Shun abomination up the street a kick in the pants.

Noodle Talk in Sunnyvale is quite good, can't think of another place around here where we saw 20 people lined up at 11:30 am Saturday lunch opening time. Please open soon!

I go to Noodle Talk in Sunnyvale weekly. It's an outstanding, authentic Hunan-style Chinese Noodle shop. I can't wait for it to be within walking distance.

As with every authentic Chinese restaurant, the service sucks. It's about the food; raise your hand if you want something. If you expect everywhere to be the Cheesecake Factory, please don't go.

If people are interested in truly authentic and adventurous Asian fare, including many hand made noodle options, they need to head to the east bay. The Fremont area is phenomenal for foodies looking to break away of the places everyone else knows about.
