Noodlefan to Open in South Orange

South Orange, New Jersey: An Asian restaurant franchise will open a location in the South Orange Village Center. 

Noodlefan of South Orange will be located at 14 Academy Street, between Irvington Avenue and First Street. 

The restaurant specializes in Thai food, and menu items range from chicken satay to oxtail soup to curry.

This will be the first location in Essex County for the Union County-based chain. There are other locations in Monroe, Elizabeth, Union, and Jersey City. The Elizabeth location opened last week, and the company will soon expand to Jersey City's Journal Square and Staten Island, New York.

The space that will be occupied by Noodlefan was previously part of the Family Buffet Restaurant and Bar, which closed at the beginning of this year. The building was recently renovated and subdivided, and one of the spaces is now used by the South Orange Convenient Stop.
