health and safety precautions
At Mama Lu’s and The Flying Noodle, health and safety of our guests and employees has always been at the forefront of what we do. We closely monitor CDC (centers for disease control) guidelines, government mandates, and public health advancements so that we can offer you the most up to date safety measures for a safe dining experience.

During this uncertain time we are looking for all options to keep our team and guests as safe as possible. We have explored countless new health and safety opportunities and are excited to introduce AIRPHX continuous air and surface disinfection technology.

AIRPHX features "cold plasma" chambers intended to kill harmful airborne and surface organisms throughout the day. Used in hospitals, healthcare facilities, Olympic training centers, universities, police and fire stations, and casinos, the AIRPHX technology is designed to eliminate 90-98% of influenza, coronavirus, norovirus, hepatitis, salmonella, listeria, E.coli, and over 30 common bacteria and viruses both in the air and on surfaces.

Our AIRPHX purification unit is up and running! We are excited to welcome you back to a space with the cleanest air and surfaces possible. Thank you for doing your part by following all sanitation protocols, including regularly washing your hands, wearing masks, practicing social distancing. We look forward to serving you!

Book your The Flying Noodle reservation on Resy

Reservations are available 20 days in advance and are highly recommended.

We understand reservation policies can be annoying. But with a very limited amount of seating and a huge desire to provide hospitality to as many guests as we can safely do, there are a few favors we ask of our guests:
br> Our dining room is currently at 25% capacity, and as such there will be a maximum time limit of 1 hour 30 minutes for reservations so we can fairly utilize our limited capacity. Your server will give you a heads up if you are nearing the end of your seating period.

If you are running late, please call the restaurant at (231) 943-1178. We hold the table for a grace period of 10 minutes before offering the table to any guests waiting.

Please allow 10-15 minutes prior to reservation time for parking.

Please understand that due to the current order, we are unable to accommodate groups larger than 6.

Thank you for your interest in joining the team at The Flying Noodle! We are proud to offer competitive compensation, meaningful benefits and an amazing work environment designed around our core values. We know that by putting our employees first, we can attract, nurture and hire the right people who are as invested in us as we are in them.
