Udon Know Bobo

Bobo Noodle House takes an ingenious concept and executes it nearly as well.

Portion sizes are very generous. Thrifty students (and the rest of us) could make two meals out of the noodle dishes. Indeed, for Wash. U. students, this might be the ideal off-campus restaurant — except for the very un-college hours it keeps. This I discovered the hard way, when my wife and I tried to have dinner there on a Friday evening. At a quarter to nine, even though there were, by my count, half a dozen tables occupied, the front door was locked, and the woman behind the counter waved us away, mouthing, "We're closed."

When we attempted to return for lunch after 1 p.m. the next day, the restaurant was dark, even though its lunch hours supposedly run till 2 p.m. While I sympathize with employees wanting to call it a night or an afternoon, this was an eyebrow-raising lack of professionalism. If you don't want to serve people close to 9 p.m., then state your closing hours as 8 or 8:30. You have a very good little restaurant in an ideal location, but who (besides me) would bother to come back after being turned away twice within 24 hours?
