[Edit] 16/12/22 Noodels closed leaving us with few if any choices besides home cooking.
I haven’t had much luck with Thai restaurants in the UK. They lack the vibrancy one gets when eating on the streets in Thailand.
But Noodels in Portsmouth is different. Starting with condiment sets for sweet, sour, chilli flakes and crushed peanuts.
As well as help yourself to water.
The menu is nice and simple offering typical Thai street food and Chinese noodles. The prices are reasonable and portions generous.
The beef noodles are particularly good even if as I believe, they are stewed in a wine base. I also enjoyed the crispy pork which is served with rice.
