Good beef noodles!

Went here for dinner on a Friday night. Small little restaurant. Expect to be sharing tables. Overall food was good. Had the beef soup noodles. Food was a little pricy compared to similar-type restaurants. Great service. Food was served under 5 minutes. Tip: Go early. Expect a queue.

I am not sure if they are the best, but i will say it is worth trying. I like beef noodle and hardly any can let me down unless they are bad. With the goods one, i can hardly really compare the standard. I had curry beef mix noodle. It was real good, with great portion and fill me up... More

Overall nothing wrong with the beef noodles but totally over hyped! They aren't anything special and various places in Hong Kong, even standard cha chaan tengs are as good as this place. I live a stone's throw away and always see the crazy long queues - mainly Mainland Chinese and Korean tourists (must be highly rated as a 'must eat'... More

Over-rated beef noodles not worth the wait at all! The ingredients are not anything special and miserable. Equivalent to any food court noodles.

I heard about the place from few of my friends, decided to give it a try . The best beef noodles soup I had in a while . The flavor was too good. Soft not soggy noodles. Highly recommended

My first visit to this shop was when I was a kid and Kau Kee was still a street hawker and they have been around for generations to generations! Things had then changed, the had their own shop, they became very good and famous for their "Beef Brisket" However, I think today , the shop is only focus on tourists... More

These are probably one of the best noodles I've had. Turn up early, as the line can get quite long. Be prepared to sit and eat with complete strangers, but that's the whole fun of it! It is not a fancy place, but the meal makes up for it. I make it a point to eat there every time I... More

Have read about this highly recommended shop several years back, but did not have a chance to try it during the last few trips. Finally had time to visit it this time. The shop is opened at 12.30pm, by the time we arrived at 11.45am, there was already a queue building up in front of the shop. We joined the... More

Came here after a long walk and climb to this place as recommended by my colleagues in HK. Nice soup, with good Q noodles! The beef might be a little fatty but still acceptable by me :P

Staying in Sheung Wan

Neighborhood Profile
Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
