What do we, two dudes from Philly, know about “authentic” Asian cuisine? Nothing. Lucky for us, that’s not what CHeU Noodle Bar & Bing Bing Dim Sum are all about. We cook what we like to eat — it’s personal, no matter what we put in front of you. Our food is often informed by tradition, but it’s never defined by it. All that we require of you is a willing mind and a willing stomach. We might not be “authentic.” But we do keep it real. - Ben & Shawn

Been here and other locations , Bing Bing, NuNu and Cheu on 10th and never disappointed. Solid food with Asian and other cultures flavors.(Brisket with Ramen soup👍)

Good selection of craft beers and cocktails. Make a reservation as it’s limited in table seating but worth the adventure.

The food was excellent and very creative. I liked the atmosphere too, it was industrial with an Asian influence. I would definitely go again.

The food at Cheu is always delicious and prepared quickly. The staff is friendly and helpful. No complaints other than the fact that I wish the restaurant was bigger so that I could go more often.

Brisket ramen with matzo ball was excellent for a cold, winter evening along with great appetizers of black pepper wings and dumplings.

Awesome, unique food with vegetarian and vegan options. Cool ambiance! Just a little disappointed with the service. We felt very very rushed, which was not pleasant.

There's a lot of hype around this place and I enjoy the wings but overall the ramen fusion isn't that great. The ramen lacks cohesiveness and was really salty. Service was great and the overall atmosphere is nice though. It's more worth it to go during happy hour to grab a drink and a few appetizers.

Food was great! Our group of 4 shared all 5 or 6 of the available happy hour appetizers, and then 2 bowls of ramen. The ramen bowls were pretty typical for ramen - nothing too special to rave about, but the appetizers were unique and really good, I'd highly recommend giving a few a try!

I was with a large party of clients with varying dietary restrictions + preferences- everyone really loved everything they ordered + tried! Would definitely recommend it! The space is also really artistically designed, which added to the fun atmosphere!

Place was amazing 😋 only issue was server judged me and my GF because he said were ordering “too much” and probably wouldn’t finish it. We just wanted to try different things on the menu, didn’t like that

One of our FAVORITE PLACES EVER!! I still remember when the bike shop closed I always hoped that they would open something else here because of it being such a cool building and they did not disappoint after opening cheu! I’ve been coming here since they first opened and I have never ever had a bad experience! The inside is the coolest mix fried chicken buns are soo delicious always a must for us!

Great find! The second instance of Cheu noodles is a cozy place with modern takes on ramen. Small place, but just right and not too noisy! Will definitely be coming back for more.
