Noodlefan Opening in Journal Square

Noodlefan USA, a local casual Thai/Asian group of restaurants, is opening at 2814 JFK Boulevard, right by Journal Square. They're planning on beginning with a soft open today After running into some technical issues, they have had to delay the soft opening, but hope to be open within the next week or so. The restaurant will be open 7 days a week from 11am-10pm.

*UPDATE* The Journal Square location is now open

This is their second location in Jersey City. The first is located at 514 Central Ave in Jersey City Heights. The menus are mostly Thai with some Chinese and Japanese dishes and in addition to chicken, beef, and pork, they offer vegetarian proteins.

I love Thai food and continually hope to see more and more of it Jersey City, but Noodlefan is a good place to start. I've been to the one in the Heights a few times and have always found the food and service to be good. The waiters and host staff are extremely friendly and happy to make a recommendation. Although they rely heavily on frying for the appetizers, the curry puffs and vegetarian spring rolls have great flavor. As far as main courses, the yellow curry (Massaman style - a mild curry with peanuts) and their Drunken Noodles which are spicy but not overwhelmingly so, are reliable favorites.

Between this and the upcoming PJ Ryan's, Journal Square is seeing a lot more diversity in its dining scene and this is just the beginning. Congratulations to Noodlefan on their soft open!
