Its flexible and refined menu makes for easy ordering, customers choose their box (small, regular or kids), choose either noodles or rice for their base, add their fillings (protein and vegetables) then finish off with a selection of its unique handmade sauces. Dr Noodles caters to vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs too so everyone can get a taste. Dr Noodles is popular with office workers looking for their lunchtime noodle fix and is also a student favourite. It is even championed by a local professional football team, becoming a regular post-match treat.
