I was introduced to Kau Kee when one night I was visiting Hong Kong for business travel to a city I was born and raised in from New York where I was working at the time on a taxi ride when I asked the taxi driver where the best place to eat beef brisket noodle is in Hong Kong. I... More

This was by far the most delicious meal I had in Hong Kong. I have yet to find a comparable beef noodle soup in NYC. The service was fast and the food was cheap, though it helped to have a local guide us through our order.

If you're a big fan of beef brisket & do not mind standing in a long line for about 20-30 minutes (it's pretty fast as customer won't stay long as the shop is very small & congested), do check this place out. It's not far from Sheung Wan MTR station exit but I always get lost when I tried to... More

Just love this place. I go there at least once a week. Both the original or curry beef noodle is superb!! Beef is so tender that melts in your mouth. Curry might be too spicy for some people. Avoid the peak hours and weekend as u will end up waiting in line.

You should come here only for the food. Beef brisket noodles was very good. Beef was very tender and delicious. But service wasn't very good and the serving was rather small for its price.

Not as good as I have expected after reading the fantastic reviews. Quite expensive for small bowl of noodles. The soup was a bit too salty. It is not worth queueing in the hot sun for an hour for it.

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.
