Noodle Restaurant Review: Red and black accents create an exotic ambience at this Midtown location of a Decatur-launched Asian bistro. Koreans of Chinese descent, siblings Lili, Lina and Lenny Shou have crafted a menu that captures the fundamental flavors of the Asian culinary world, including Thai, Korean, Chinese and Vietnamese. Crisp curry beef roll (ground beef and fresh vegetables) and chicken satay to be dipped into a hoisin-peanut sauce both make fine starters, and portions are plenty for two to share. Noodle bowls and noodle soups --- also enough to share --- are offered alongside substantial and value-priced Asian classics, such as Korean bulgogi bop. We like the kung pao, a spicy Chinese dish that may be made vegetarian or with chicken, beef or shrimp. Brown rice may be specified. Various American-style desserts are available. There is a wine list, but a hot blackberry-sage tea makes a spirited pairing. A few outdoor tables accommodate al fresco dining. Lunch is served to 4 p.m., then dinner takes over at 5 p.m.
