THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Orrapin Noodle Experience Restaurant Review: Orrapin Noodle Experience, located just around the corner from Queen Anne hilltop veteran Orrapin Thai Food (both named after owner Orrapin Chancharu), is an addition to the line-up of small, conceptually focused eateries making their presence known to the Seattle dining public. An oasis amid the din of city living, this small, well-appointed room welcomes everyone with soothing music and the aromas of the home kitchen. The simple menu offers diners an assortment of delicious appetizers, salads and a few Thai dishes, but (as the name suggests) the noodle soups are remarkable. There are six noodle soups on the menu and each is unique. Like ordering salad with a choice of dressing, you get to select one of five noodles to go with your soup: egg, wide flat, rice, vermicelli and angel hair. Noodle deluxe soup is a savory chicken broth accented with scallions and cilantro with heavy pieces of chicken and Chinese green bean sprouts. We instantly warmed up to roasted duck noodle soup, a heavenly broth featuring rich pieces of duck meat and slices of shiitake mushrooms, perfumed with star anise, scallions and cilantro. They also offer a (Thai-style) sukiyaki, a satisfying bowl of seafood or beef with napa cabbage, celery, and spicy red bean sauce served with vermicelli noodles.
