Yummy Beef Noodles

My friends and I went to Kau Kee Restaurant for lunch. Beef noodle soup was tasty and Beef curry noodles is not spicy .... a must try. Beef is tender soft ... at HK$43 a bowl, it is reasonably priced. Will recommend visitors to Hong Kong to try these noodles

Located in a small alleyway, so a little hard to find you. Be careful not to get the wrong queue, since opposite Kau Kee there's also a queue line for another restaurant. Look for beige painted shop with red sign that reads Kau Kee. The queue was moving quite fast. We had beef brisket with e-fu noodle in broth, and... More

If you visit in the last hour before they close, there is no queue. The beef brisket in curry sauce is heavenly and so tender. The clear soup beef noodle was also very tasty. Totally work the hike up mid levels.

It's nice if you do not need to queue. I didn't so i think it was great! Perhaps I was having a late dinner, thus not many people/tourists queuing around. Good to try if you are in the area and love beef brisket

I have definitely had better beef brisket elsewhere but it is still very good here. I love taking friends who are visiting Hong Kong here more for the historical factor. The clear broth is fantastic - so tasty. Noodles are al dente although I would have liked to have the rice noodles (they run out of this at night!). Beef... More

I cannot understand the hype about this place. If you do not mind to queue for half an hour under the sun, and eventually have a bowl of average beef brisket noodle, then you can go. I will not.

to say that this place specializes in Beef Brisket noodle soup is an understatement. It is an absolute art here One person does the noodles and veg, one slices the brisket. I always order one bowl of the brisket noodle soup and one bowl of extra meat. pricing is insanely good but there is usually a line up here so... More

The staff make you feel like they are dong you a favour by being gracious enough to throw a bowl of noodles at you. I am surprized i was not spat upon for being so bold for ordering their noodles. I have been in HK 16 years this place is over rated and over hyped. There are many other much... More

This family run restaurant serves the most delicious beef broth. Ordered the beef noodles & the meat was so tender . Expect to share tables as they get so crowded all the time.

You are sitting and sweating on a small stool, surrounded by other sweaty patrons huddled around one of many round, greasy tables. Service is... brusque and no frills. A bowl of noodles costs about $5 US although you might want to get two. Many people seem to get two different noodles to sample. The taste is amazing. The texture of... More

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.
