China Boy Noodle Shop

815 6th St NW
Washington, DC 20001



  • My source for authentic and fresh rice noodles. Not really a restaurant, but they supply all of the Thai and Chinese places in the area.
  • Inspectors closed China Boy citing gross unsanitary conditions and a heavy infestation of vermin. It passed re-inspection and reopened.
  • Just a little hole in the wall shop and not the quickest place to grab a bite either, but the chow foon is significantly better than the other authentic downtown spots. In house made noodles FTW.
  • Cash only but delicious and hand made noodles
  • It might look like there are no vegetarian options, but just ask and they can make a veggie & tofu chow foon.
  • Get the beef noodle soup!!! The broth is delicious! Get it to go.
  • Little known fact: they supply the rest of the city with the flat rice noodles. Go to the source for your chow foon. You can also buy the noodles for cooking at home.
  • Great noodles!
  • Pick up some tasty noodles and make stir fry at home. Yum!
  • Their rice noodles are amazing
  • Happiness is a bowl of perfectly cooked noodles
  • Best rice noodles I have ever had. Pork is awesome.
  • If you are getting it to go, make sure to ask for a to go cup of Sri racha. Makes it even better!
  • Try the beef rice noodle crepe. Make sure you pour soy sauce on them. The hot sauce too if you like it spicy.
  • Beef tripe chow fun. Cash only! Legit Chinese food
