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.

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

Our family of picky eaters was stunned and would go back there again. If u like wontons noodle soups and the like... More

My family & I always have many bowls of the clear soup beef noodles & also the dry ones whenever we are in HongKong. They have many different types of noodles but we love the hor-fun type. The beef is very fresh & doesn't give a pungent smell & taste at all. And you are able to tell that they... More

I traveled several South-East Asian countries and taste beef noodle soup, most of times. My local friend took me there and told me it is good. It is more than good, super good. I am willingly to go HKG just for this noodle. My friend also tried curry noodle which is also great. I strongly recommend to go and taste.... More
