Well-presented Asian fare on Yas Island
Time Out Says
One of a series of eateries contained by the iconic white grids on the ground floor of the Yas Hotel, Noodle Box is has a slightly warmer atmosphere inside than the sterile exterior suggests. Casual seating with modern floral prints on the walls and cushions soften up what would otherwise be a rather awkward, unimaginative space. The menu contains a list of Asian hits – all the old favourites from sweet and sour to nasi goreng and pad Thai, all of which are about twice the price that this kind of Asian food should be. Flavours are bland and uninspired but the presentation is very smart, with even basics such as the noodles, salads and rice served with flair. Staff are efficient and smiley and extras such as the delicious mocktails go some way towards making up for the lacklustre main courses. Still other restaurants in the hotel are so much better it would be a shame to spend so much of your money here.
