I have been meaning to go here for ages, having heard about the place on chowhound. I got the fresh noodles (la mian) in beef soup and really enjoyed them; fresh fragrant stock, springy noodles and whilst the meat wasn’t the best quality, it added an extra depth to the stock. I also enjoyed watching the cook throwing around the noodles, stretching out the dough. A word of warning – do not eat anything else on the menu apart from the hand-made noodles, including the ‘buffet’. There is no sign outside the shop in English with the name – just says ‘noodle bar’ – it is opposite the Leicester Square exit closest to St Martin’s Lane / Covent Garden and look out for the man inside making noodles.
