You can find better service and shorter lines all around Hong Kong, but you won't better, more authentic noodle dishes even at higher prices. Crowded or not, this place deserves a pilgrimage.

We are not fans of beef noodles but the beef noodle soup captured our heart. You still have to queue for your turn. The restaurant is very small, they are using small round table that can fit max 5 adults "nicely", we were arranged to share table with a local and another 2 tourist. Even you are q-ing up, they...

The lines are long for a reason. Right across from Sing Heung Yuen is another one of my all time favorites in Hong Kong. If you love beef, curry, and noodles, this is a place you cannot miss when in Hong Kong. It is so popular that probably more tourists visit that locals nowadays. You will find a lot of... More

Cheap meal, with queues and very local atmosphere. Shared tables and rushed service, but the food is delicious and quite worth it if you prefer more adventurous cuisine. Come off peak hours for less of a line.

Obnoxious waiters - a standard in Hong Kong. Cramped place where you share tables with strangers - also a common practice when in HK. Equally rude and impassive cashier. I guess that is what happens when you have an established and popular joint. Oh, and there's a line during peak meal times as well. Liked the noodles (had the curry... More

We went to kau kee beef noodle shop. I had curry beef basket with flat noodle and my partner had beef slice with fu-e noodle. Both were delicious and dancing on my tongue. But the restaurant is small and very rushed. Only share table allowed. And felt pressured to leave by staff. Curry beef is a bit spicy tho, so... More

Even though Hong Kong is the land of queuing, I would have to say that this place is not worth the incredibly long line-up during lunch time. The beef brisket is tender, broth is mediocre, and they sure serve a lot of noodles in proportion to meat. I guess you can't fault it because of the low price. Overall, it's... More

The broth was great... lots of beef brisket and meat. However I felt that the noodles portion were a bit too much. I prefer to have lesser noodles and more broth.
