vegan menu, not authentic

Posted on 05 / 26 / 2015

This place isn't authentic Japanese cuisine, but they don't claim to be! Has a separate vegan menu which is always a plus. The veggie cake is delicious (love any place that serves a vegan tempura!). Prices aren't great but everything is filling. A good option if in the area.

Good and interesting Japanese food

Posted on 01 / 07 / 2014

Noodlecat featured delicious food, a diverse set of vegetarian and vegan options, and an interesting decor. Be sure and ask for the vegan menu, although there are some vegetarian items on the regular menu that are not vegan.

In addition to good food, they have a number of interesting cocktails.

The decor is light hearted and relaxed. Our waiter was friendly and engaging, but not pushy. The "chairs" are only stools and would be uncomfortable for a long dinner.

Pros: Wide selection, Bar menu
Cons: Uncomfortable chairs

Noodlecat, Cleveland

Posted on 08 / 28 / 2013

Our family of 5 vegans ate at Noodlecat, Saturday evening, August 24. We were not impressed. Authentic Japanese ingredients but no idea how to cook with them. Everything over-heated and chili used to mask natural flavours. Vegan restaurant choices in Cleveland are very limited compared to other major US cities. Noodlecat is not the solution.

Pros: Friendly service, Authentic Japanese ingredients
Cons: No idea how to cook Japanese cuisine, Overheated, chili used to mask natural flavours

Very authentic Japanese-style noodle house

If you are looking to scratch that noodle itch, Noodlecat is your place! It is a downtown Cleveland gem that is worth finding. While not a vegetarian place, they completely "get" what vegetarians want; to feel safe knowing we are not consuming anything from an animal. Noodlecat bends backwards to make people with different dietary patterns comfortable. Yes, if you are a gluten-free, vegan, noodle aficionado, this is your place! They have a wonderful vegan broth for their soups and their small menu has other vegan options. Additionally, Noodlecat has plenty of options on their menu for your omnivorous friends so they don't have to feel "challenged" by your diet. Also, if you are a sports fan, you will love their bar in the back which has a lot of seating, the same wonderful menu and the option to watch how the Browns are doing this season! Try this place, it is authentic and it really rocks!!!

Pros: Excellent food, Fun atmosphere, Knowledgeable, considerate staff
Cons: Can get noisy
