The noodle at this shop is good, but I think it is a bit over priced for a bowl of ramen.

A warm bowl of steaming noodle soup on a cold night --what could be better? Delicious and filling all around with a techno-vibe that couldn't be beat. Potstickers were good too. We'll be back

Didn't know why yelp reviews are bad, but the service and food was pretty good. Pricing is on average with Newbury restaurants.

From Our Editors

At Wen's Rice Noodle and Ramen, you can find the Yunnan noodle dish known as guoqiao mixian. This dish, which means "crossing the bridge noodles," takes its name from an old Yunnan legend.

As the story goes, a scholar's wife prepared him noodle soup while he studied on a remote island in the middle of a glistening lake. So engrossed was the scholar in his studies that his soup was often cold and inedible by the time he remembered to eat it. Before long, he began to look sickly and frail. His industrious wife, concerned for his welfare, found a simple yet effective solution. By keeping her ingredients separated until her husband was ready to eat, the meal would remain fresh and delicious. And so, day after day she diligently crossed the long bridge to the island, not with just one dish, but many, ensuring her husband was always looked after and well fed.

At Wen's, this loving tradition endures. Like the legend's caring wife, each server brings ingredients like beef, shrimp, and pork (along with accompaniments such as mushrooms and bean sprouts) in a variety of small dishes. Spread before diners, the server helps them combine broth, noodles, and meats to their specific liking.
