Yun Nan Flavour Garden 5121 8th Ave
Get the noodles and dumplings in hot and sour sauce. Love this spot!
Great tasting noodles! My favorite is the lamb or beef noodle soup. They are a cheap no frills kinda place. They are currently open for takeout!I have dined in here in the past and they do not serve free water. There is one waiter who also is the cashier, but I've never had an issue with slowness at this restaurant!
Their noodles are great. I usually order the beef with soup noodle and they add some spice into it. It's spicy but not overwhelming, so you don't need to drink a bottle of water every time you take a bite. HOWEVER, you do have to either bring your own water or buy water from their store because they do not offer a cup of water or tea.
This casual, local spot sells great rice noodle dishes, both soupy and saucy. I ordered a brothy bowl of rice noodles with crispy meat whereas my friend ordered the zha jiang mian (dry noodles with meat/bean sauce). Both of us really enjoyed our dishes which had rice noodles that were just the right texture - not too mushy but also not too brittle. Servings were big and very well priced

The best rice noddle shop I've ever ate! I was actually a bit skeptical at first because I was never a huge noodle fan. However, I've soon proven myself wrong. I simply love their crispy meat noodles. The soup tasted amazing and the ingredients are super fresh. It's definitely a must have.
The best! Hot and sour soup. Cold noodles. Crossing the bridge noodles. It's all good. Miss the old OG flavor SNACK spot but it's the same!
DO NOT EAT HERE!! FOODS ARE NOT CLEAN!!

Authentic flavorful rice noodles, a decent amount of selection. Pricing was acceptable.
Doesn't get as authentic and delicious as Yunnan Flavor Garden. This hole in the wall joint serves Yunnan style rice noodles, and one of the first restaurants in NY to serve it "crossing the bridge" style. I've had the original crossing bridge noodles in many restaurants in Kunming, Yunnan, and in terms of the flavor and presentation of food this is the closest you can get in the Western Hemisphere. Hole in the wall joint - not going to get tacky decor, or fanciful decoration. That's all fluff - making you only focus on the food, and boy was the food out of the world. Highlights - Crossing bridge noodles ($10-$12 depending on which one). As authentic as it gets, comes serve with plates of raw vegetables and sliced meats, and the chef comes out bringing you a piping hot bowl of soup. You dump your meats and veggies and quail egg inside, cooking it like hot pot style before putting the rice noodles last. The key to a good crossing bridge noodle is the broth, and that broth packed SO much flavors. I can tell the grandpa chef who made the soup spent hours perfecting the broth, as it was so hearty and flavorful. The noodles instantly were able to absorb all those flavors making each bite delectable and a great experience. Honestly, I'll travel here any day just to get their cross bridge noodles. Enough of the inauthentic crap in Manhattan from Deng Ji or Shimiaodao, this place sets the bar up high!
Very delish cold rice noodle. The sauce was amazingly tasty and special!
The cold noodles are so good! Wished they added more meat than noodles. Sauce is very flavorful. They add cilantro which gives it a nice flavor.
The best 过桥面 in the area, for only $14 too!
The best noodle ever! I can eat their no. 1 crossing bridge noodle everyday. Their dumplings are also very good.
