I ordered takeout from this place on the way to the airport based on a friends recommendation and it was well worth the trouble! The beef was so soft and succulent while the noodles were springy. Definitely one of the best beef brisket noodles I've have in my life !

Beef is soft and tender, noodles taste like instant noodles and the soup is slightly salty. Likely to have too much MSG. Seemed to always have a queue and the food is not cheap either. Not an ideal place for meals and catch-up. More suitable for a quick meal.

This restaurant has been around for a long time and each trip to Hong Kong will not be complete without visiting this restaurant. It is like getting a fix each day ... we would start queueing approximately 12noon (opens at 12.30pm) and even then, the queue is already rather long ... it's worth the queue! My favourites - special beef... More

Amazing noodles! I wasn't sure what to order, ended up eating two bowls on my own. One curry noodles, and one beef brisket. Line was long, but moved at a decent clip. Get there early! Noodles always had a great bite and beef was cooked soft and tender.

During my stay at Hong Kong island, ,every night we will walk from hotel to this restaurant just to have the noodles. Even till now, we are still craving for the noodles. The brisket yee noodles is superb and the curry noodles is marvellous. Even my picky daughter loves it. The only down point is the price is high and... More

small authentic joint. 40HKD for a small bowl of noodles but very crowded. Taste was great, but not soupy or saucy enough for my liking. Beef was soft and nice.

Despite the remote location restaurant in the quiet street of Sheung Wan, a constant queue can be seen with locals & foreigners alike waiting patiently for a chance to get a seat in the restaurant. The offering on the menu is quite basic, the dishes look 'deceptively plain', till it landed on the palate of the mouth, the beef simply... More

Their beef soup is highly recommended by local friends. Local restaurants, friendly services. Not an easy place to find though

We asked a local where to go. They said this place on Hong Kong island. Do yourself a favour and joking the queue of locals for an experience you will not forget. Cheap as chips and fantastic food. Our family of picky eaters was stunned and would go back there again. If u like wontons noodle soups and the like... More
