Despite what its name suggests, Madame Wu's Noodle Bar offers a good range of Asian dishes, not just noodle dishes. This restaurant is located on The Parade in Norwood. The place was quiet when we arrived for an early dinner but became quite crowded as the peak dinner hour drew near.
Offered as a special during our visit, the slices of beef in their Black Bean Hotpot was cooked just right and there were enough black beans in the sauce to give the dish a delectable salty flavour. There was also some bok choy to balance out the rich taste of the beef with its refreshing flavour. This dish could also be made with chicken or pork instead.

One of the vegetarian options available, the vegetables in the Vegetarian Red Curry with Tofu still had a crunch and was complemented well by the slightly softer tofu. The dish had a good amount of red curry gravy to give the dish a delightful spicy kick that is still mild enough for those not used to spicy foods.

Great for helping sate your hunger while waiting for your main meals, the minced chicken and prawn stuffing in their Stuffed Chicken Wings gave the dish its meaty texture with the crisp coating setting off the flesh nicely. Served alongside the wings was some sweet chilli sauce that the wings can be dipped in to give them a bit of spice.

The restaurant had a causal feel to it with the tables spaced a good distance apart from each other. A good amount of parking space is available on the street where the restaurant is located.
