Consistently good!

The wanton noodles are so good! The texture of the egg noodles, the freshness of the prawn wrapped in wanton skin, and the sweetness of the soup base, make a very good wanton noodles that Mak is famous for... We never fail to make a pit stop here to have a bowl of wanton noodles.

The pork knuckle was a bloom to my mouth! it was so good! wanton noodle was the signature dish. The place only open after 11am, so make sure u get there at the right time. we like the dry wanton noodle over soupy wanton noodle, the soupy one did not taste as good.

An oldie but a goodie that I always go back to every time I'm in Hong Kong. Wonton Noodles, veggies and the pork knuckles are staple items. They are a must eat.

Was told of this highly acclaimed wanton noodles shop in Jordan area. A trip to Hong Kong would not be complete without a bowl of wanton noodles. The shop is conveniently located in Jordan, 2 minutes walk from Exit C2 of Jordan MTR Station. There is another famous noodles shop just 2 shops away, and we decided to try both... More

Small portion but classic rendition of wanton noodles made kansui style with wantons filled with succulent giant shrimp. Go earlier if you want milk tea, runs out in the evenings. Have a side of crunchy green kailan too. The long-time staff of elderly gentlemen are very charming. Completely old school but you don't mess with perfection.

After reading so many reviews we decided to check out this place. The prices are expensive with small servings. The soup noodles with prawn wontons was tightly crammed into a small bowl with 3 wontons burried at the bottom. The soup base was too salty with no depth of flavour. The wontons were of good size with succulent prawn and... More

Wonton noodle is a specialty and authentic versions are found only in Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou. It is very chewy, 'endente', so it may not be to your taste if you are Western. But for me this is really special. The soup is made from grinded deep-fried fish bone and really good. Cannot find it anywhere, and Mak Man... More

I like the Wan Tan Mee here, the mee is chewy, wantan is big, chewfy, fresh, and tasty, sup is fresh! Everything it needs to make a perfect wantan mee. However, like many other famous restaurant in Hong Kong, do not expect a friendly service from the staff. They are just trying to serve your needs as fast as they... More

Neighborhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighborhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
