Great soup, small portion

The wonton soup was very good. Four wontons and fresh, crunchy shrimp. Mostly appeared to be non tourists eating here. I'm not sure if this is just the American in me, but I agree the portions were small. The place was also packed. We were in and out quickly and shared our table with another... read more

The food was ok amd come in small portions. They don't speak english and the menu (in the wall) is in Chinese characters. A local man sitting in the same table (very common to share table with strangers) was kind enough to help me ordering the food. Had two different noodles for HKD 76.

The wantons were great! Never taste such good wanton. But the noodle was just ordinary. Overall was acceptable.

Was supposed to be queuing for Australia diary company but in the end was eating wonton. Small quaint hole in the wall cafe but packs a punch in terms of food. I had the shrimp roe noodles and it was a tasty orgasm in my mouth. My friend had the tender and soft beef brisket. Noodles were just right... Al... More

Mak Man Kee Noodle shop is a hole-in-the-wall joint in the Jordan area, just steps away from the Jordan MTR station. This restaurant gained fame after Anthony Bourdain visited it years ago. (I learned this fact from another friend.) It is always full and so there is a wait. They do have an English menu so a tourist will not... More

This place came highly recommended for the best wonton noodle soup in Kowloon or Hong Kong. Service is ultra fast, and the wonton noodle soup was tasty. Portion was small, more like a snack as opposed to a meal. Worth a visit.

We tried Mak's noodles a few days ago and wanted to eat delicious wanton noodles again so the Internet told us that Mak Man Kee is pretty much on par with Mak's. You don't say! It's so delicious :') What's even better, the wantons here are made of 100% shrimp! AND everything is slightly cheaper here as compared to Mak's.... More

I have been to this restaurant for thirty years. The food has maintained its quality but the servings have shrunk to child portions. You need to order 2-3 items of the menu to fill you up. The services have deteriorated thru the years. In order to increase the customers turn-over, they literally push the customers out as soon as they... More

I ate there many times over the years, every time when I was in Hong Kong. A friend of mine, a Hong Kong resident, had been eating regularly at this place for over twenty years. The place is small and the decor is simple and old. I think the wonton noodle soup is the best in Hong Kong (easily the... 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.
