Food is great and reasonably priced! And when you're there make sure you check out the ice cream place next door.

Noodlehead is my go-to Thai food spot in Pittsburgh. Located right in the heart of Shadyside, Noodlehead has it all: good service, amazing food, and low-prices. Expect a wait on weekends and at dinner-time because it's a local favorite! No reservations and no phone. Great,...More
