I was waiting for them to renovate before writing a review.

The renovation really did them good: the place is much cleaner, not smelly, bathrooms are big and clean and the little balcony upstairs is a good spot to watch the street-life while enjoying a cold drink in a soft breeze.

It is true though that if you decide to stay late during the night, you might encounter some strange characters, but keep away from them, enjoy the Saturday night DJs, and you'll be fine.

The new Half Man - Half Noodle is a better one. I like to chill out here with some of my friends on the weekend.
All the staffs and Luân- the manager here are so friendly, I always have the feeling as a little sister here whenever I come. They really take care of the customer. If you get as drunk as my craziest time, and especially if ur a girl, no worries, they won't let u go home by motobike, even its urs, they will take a good taxi brand for you to get home safe ! Thanks god for this for all the party animals. And you can come back take your bike the next day, no doubt !
Food and drinks here are good quality and the prices are reasonable.
Down stair, with some old school music or with a friendly DJ on Fri night, u can rock, make some crazy move, not much space for dance but enough for some shaking, I'm sure for that !
Up stair has some couches and a lovely balcony to calm your ears !
Before, people came here complained about the bad smell and the horrible look of it. But now its changed, worth for another visit of you guys. It looks much better - I appreciated the try of the manager here - It has more space, bathrooms are cleaner and don't smell like shit anymore.
Come on guys, if you feel hurt on your happy feet after some movement from some bars around or just wanna have a quite weekend, come here and enjoy ! Cheers !
If you drink, don't drive ! Be home safe after drinking !

The other reviews of Noodle have been unstellar but they were before the recent renovations. Noodle is what it is...a dive bar. Don't go there and expect The Ritz. The beer is cheap, the food decent (great schnitzel!)and the Hanoi Panic!DJ night every Saturday night is great! Punk,electro,britpop,and other music genres tranforms the Noodle into a bar in NYC! Saturday Nights are the best nights to go!

This is a dive bar. It's definitely not for everyone. If I wanted to, I could easily turn this review into a nasty tirade about all the different ways the Noodle has failed me: 1) the music is often too loud, 2) the sound system is screwed up (the front room of the bar hears the right speaker and the rear room hears the left speaker), 3) you have to be careful with your bill, depending on who is working, 4) the place stinks.

But I don't take these complaints seriously. The bottom line is that this bar has tons of character and is a great place to meet new people. It's one of my favorite Hanoi bars.

The manager, Luong, is a great guy to hang out with, is very helpful, and speaks better English than 99% of the Vietnamese you'll meet in Hanoi. When he's around the place is even more fun to be in and there's less chance of a problem with your bill.

The food used to be better when they had the German cook, but their schnitzel is still quite good even now. Definitely the highlight of the menu and a bargain at 60,000 VND.

If you're not expecting a swank, posh, elegant drinking and dining experience then the Noodle is your place - unbeatable!

I agree with the last review. this place smells like a wet dog's arse...I'm not trying to be funny; its borderline horrific. I was taken here as a last resort when all other bars were shut and it was full of strange people. I have also eaten steak here which might have been nice except for the overpowering smell of ass
