This is a local eatery right next door to the Great Bite Fish and Chips (previously reviewed favourably!). There are other outlets of the same franchise aeound Melbourne.

They have a reasonable variety of Wok Tossed Noodles, Soups. Rice Dishes and Side Dishes (incuding vegetarian) and offer a fast and efficient service.

Our group tried out three dishes on this occasion: 

* Noodle Hut "Inferno" - thin egg noodles cooked with a combination of chicken, beef, roast pork and vegetables in a special chilli sauce ($10.80);

* Singapore Fried Noodle - stir fried thin rice noodles with light curry, shrimp, roast pork, bean shoots, onion, capsicum, carrots, egg and shallots ($10.80); and

* Fried Kwai Teow - stir fried thick rice nnodles with roast pork, shrimp, bean shooots, onion, capsicum, carrots, egg and shallots in a dark soy and chilli sauce ($10.80).

These were all very nice, with clearly fresh ingredients, and moreish i.e. it was difficult to stop eating them! The flavourings were quite mild and nothing to be fearful of. There was a good balance of noodles, meat and veggies, but it was a bit disappointing that most of the sauce was concentrated down the bottom of the pack, so I would recommend perhaps transferring the noodles into a bowl and mixing through prior to service. I particularly liked the Kwai Teow - the noodles were "melt in your mouth".

If you are after reasonably price, quick and relatively healthy food it is difficult to go past food like this. It is unpretentious and you know what you are getting, but without the risks of street food. Recommended!
