The online lunch menu does not match with the actual restaurant menu. The online lunch menu resembles the dinner menu however the actual lunch menu is very limited. An employee said they have ask corporate office to change the website with no results.

Very good food at reasonable prices. No view or outdoor dining. Located on Capitol Hill close to venues such as Town Hall, Elliott Bay Book Co. Very much worth the visit.

Quick, interesting and tasty. Service is friendly and gets your food to the table but don't expect much beyond it. Atmosphere is average with bright lighting and barely audible background music.

My husband and I were staying at the Hilton Homewood Suites down the street from Boom Noodle. It was a typical rainy Seattle evening. A work colleague suggested we meet there. It was a wonderful bohemian walk up Pike with vibrant Friday night activities. Reminded me of the resurgence in Downtown Los Angeles. We noticed several patrons trying to use the wrong door to get into the restaurant. Us included. We were seated immediately in a cozy booth in the bar. We were served in an appropriate amount of time and the server was friendly and knowledgable. I had the curry noodle soup with chicken. The best Ive ever had. My husband enjoyed his dish as well, although I don't remember what it was. We had mochi for dessert. It was a wonderful evening. I will definitely go back and would recommend this restaurant to friends and colleagues.

We were excited to return to Boom Noodle after their re-opening at the Capitol Hill location. Parking was difficult, as expected. We ended up paying for a nearby lot. Noise level was high, which required a lot of repeating our orders/requests to our server. We were dining with our kids; lots of families were there on a Friday evening. Appropriate/enjoyable family atmosphere except for one loud group doing shots in the bar... One person in our party was served the wrong meal. Took a long time to have the correct meal brought out. Took a long time to get a requested fork (only chopsticks were on the table). Best foods we had: lettuce wrap appetizer, tempura vegetables, yakisoba. Not very interesting: chicken pho. We have had many good meals and great service at the old location in University Village. We were a bit disappointed about the service and food on this visit.

Probably one of my favorite spots in Capitol Hill. The food is great. Service can get awkward but outside of that its a good unique spot.

Imagine my surprise when my two friends and I arrived at Boom, U Village, for our reservation last Tuesday, to find the restaurant gutted, construction workers galore, and a sign on the former entrance announcing they were opening in another location in another week. This was a birthday celebration and had been planned for some time. Fortunately there were many other restaurants in the area and we enjoyed our lunch elsewhere. Shouldn't Open Table be made of restaurant closures and notify those who use their venue for reservations?

The food was good, however, for four people to have a conversation across a booth, it was nearly impossible!

I would recommend the food, everyone had a different dish and we shared two appetizers and all were great!

However, the noise level was unacceptable!

Service was so-so.

We have been to Boom Noodle a few times and always enjoyed the food. I've tried the Kimchi Ramen, the Curry noodle dish (can't remember the name - also a soup) and a couple others I'd have to look at the menu to remember. I've always really enjoyed my meal. This time I had the Udon with spicy beef. I wished the beef were a little hotter, but it was tasty and the meal was delicious. I'm dreaming about Udon noodles now so will be back soon. We had a great time and the service was friendly and responsive. Oh, and we also had the ahi tacos. They were delicious. More tuna than you'd expect and very tasty.

Great service & flavorful drinks, but it could not compensate for the for drab food (salty, fast-food-eque). It felt like we ate MSG (order ramen, stir-fry noodles, kimchi rice) and our stomachs hated us the next day.

Met a friend for conversation... asked for a table in a quieter area... that request was honored by the hostess... Nice staff... VERY DELICIOUS Asian cuisine... Bento Box was well priced and very good. Friend and I will return again and again.

We keep going back, hoping that service will improve are reminded within minutes of arriving that this restaurant just does operate well. The food is great but disorganized inattentive service ruins the experience. Our server must have said "sorry about that" two dozen times, which equated to the number of times we had to ask 3 or 4 times for something, or a side dish never shows up, or meals arrive 10 minutes apart, or the starter arrives 10 minutes after the entrees...after 5 or 6 visits experiencing this pattern I think it not just bad timing or bad luck.

Great food and a nice atmosphere. Noted on my reservation that we had a birthday celebration that night. We even had gifts and cards on the table, but no staff members seemed to notice. It would have been nice for them to say, "Happy Birthday" or at least acknowledge the occasion.

It's just the right spot for our family - before/after church or when we want to shop U-Village. Fresh, delicious food...something for everyone - kids like it a lot, gluten-free & vegetarian options. And yummy crepes...if we ever had enough room for those! Super quick service, hot food, and pleasant, attractive environment.

Boom, we had high hopes. Been visiting about 2 yrs. Loud? Try "cacophonous." You must shout to have dinner conversation. I usually opt for beef yakisoba. It's ok, not great and a smallish portion. This time I had sweet/sour chicken. Never again. It was so loaded w sugar it was pretty gross. I ate it because that's how I was raised: eat what's put in front of you. But skip this dish. My two kids got the boom box as usual. Thank goodness for the broccoli because the crispy chicken is -no exaggeration at all- always off. Three visits ago it was so salty it was inedible. The last two visits it was as tough as leather. Staff are usually fine but seem rushed. Boom, you're relegated to last-resort status. Not that much better than fast food.

First time dining here and loved it. I had chicken curry soup, glass of wine, edamame side dish. Everything was delicious. The ambiance is casual and friendly. It was a Sunday night so the restaurant was quiet. Service was good. I like the decore.

I had a wonderful lunch at Boom Noodle but dissappointed not to be able to get a cup of coffee. I was told that there was some contract with Starbucks that you wouldn't serve it. But at any other restaurant around u village i can get a coffee with my meal. hard to believe that i really had to go somewhere else to finish my meal. so inconvenient.

I went with a party of five on a busy Saturday night. I like the food here, interesting and flavorful without being either too spicy or too bland. Decent selection should have something for everyone. Bu the service that night was terrible. I think they rely on too many inexperiences waiters to handle their big weekend crowds. On another occasion with a big lunch party the service was fine.
