ITS welcoming bright lights attracted us while wandering through Sheffield city centre in search of food after enjoying the pleasures of a few city centre watering holes.
The West Street area is not short of takeaways so there is a lot of competition - meaning owners of eateries in the area have to be on their game.
And we were not disappointed with the offering from the Noodle Bar, one of the newest kids on the block which has only been open a matter of days.
If anything, we finished the meal feeling slightly on the full side.
Of our order, my favourite was the crispy shredded chicken, which had a really good kick - all the better after being out on a cold day - and there was a good plateful.
Meanwhile, the beef in black pepper sauce carried on the warming theme.
The tofu with bamboo shoots and mushrooms had tenderly cooked vegetables in a savoury sauce which was piping hot.
And the egg fried rice was a plentiful portion.
The overall menu has something for everyone, with around 200 dishes, including soups, starters and side dishes.
There is also a separate range of traditional szechaun dishes including a ‘hot’ selection.
The only disappointment was that neither credit nor debit cards were being taken, which seemed an oversight for a venue in the heart of the city centre.
But we just managed to get enough cash between us to cover the bill without having to find a cash machine.
Telephone orders are taken so you can call in advance to avoid having to wait. You can even browse the menu on the website, which is quite handy.
The range and quality of food make it worth a visit.
