Details: Located at 343 W 14th St, New York, NY 10014. Official site is

Score: 6/10

Hao Noodle is a trendy Chinese restaurant serving some of the most popular Chinese dishes right now. When I went, the vast majority of customers here were Chinese.

The interior is very nice and trendy. They clearly put a lot of thought into  the design.

The food is, again, the trendier aspects of Chinese cuisine right now. That means skewers. dim sum, hot pot, and a bunch of stir fried and spicy dishes. It’s all the trendiest stuff among my Chinese friends right now.

The place is named after its noodles so we ordered a bunch of noodles. We got the Dandan Noodles ($12), the noodles with scallion oil and mushrooms ($12), some skewers (priced around ten dollars each, give or a take a dollar or two), and one or two dim sum items (all dim sum items are $6).

The food was okay. The dandan noodles were very spicy. The other items were not. The food was all pretty average. The portions were small.

Service was lacking. Waiters were nice, but they were clearly understaffed.

Overall, you come here  for the environment, not the food. There are plenty of places in New York City that serve the same food except it’s more authentic and cheaper, though the environment might not be as good as this place. I’d recommend this place to the more ambiance focused people.
