Cherryblossom Noodle Cafe is one of my all time favorite restaurants when I’m in Arizona! The food is always fresh and delicious; however the service always lacks desire. This is definitely a place that requires a good 2 hour serving for dinner, so be prepared. For lunch you can be out in an hour, but you will have to keep on top of the server for your check and then beg them to take payment! They slack big time in this sense, not sure why.
It pays that the food is always fresh and very tasty, not to mention very affordable. I love the sushi. Even though they don’t offer a big variety, they always have fresh fish, served in very tasty combinations. My favorite rolls are the crunchy eel roll, the dragon roll and the Caterpillar roll. A great twist is the pasta offerings. My favorite pasta is the Penne Al Arrabiata because its spicy and delicious! The servings of their pasta is large enough for me to have enough left over for lunch the next day too. They used to serve a complimentary slice of banana bread that is absolutely divine- however these days you have to pay for it. They always have fresh desserts too!
This place is great for dates, long conversations and those who need to stretch their time together. Everything is wonderful and you will be pleasantly surprised with the beautiful decor in a strip mall….. you’ll feel as though you have entered another land once you walk through the doors, because its so cute and quaint, definitely not what you’d expect. Go try this place, you’ll love it!!!
