I had read about Mak's Noodles, and the reviews suggested it was one of the best places to get noodles in Hong Kong. Hence we thought we were fortunate to find the restaurant on top of Victoria Peak in the Galleria. Perhaps it was the location but we found the portions to be small and the noodle dishes to be...

Heard lots of good review about this place, decided to give it a try, found one near the Star Ferry pier, Staff were friendly and service was great but the portion were small compare to other restaurants around the neighborhood. Price is a bit expensive for the portion. order 4 regular dishes and a soup, just enough for 2 people... More

What got me interested to visit this place was because of the review of Anthony Bourdain... we went to the restaurant located at Lock Road in Tsim Sha Tsui. And indeed, the wanton, soup tasted very good. My friends who also visited for the first time (even if they frequently traveled to Hong Kong) agreed that food was good. Apart... More

My wife and I dropped by Mak Un Kee at Wellington Street as it was recommended by some friends. Unlike Tsim Chai Kee right across, Mak Un Kee has much less crowd and I discovered why - the portions were small. My wan tan noodles with sui kow was just too small, and pricey. But still very good as it... More

I must say that we had their noodles twice in two different branches. I would think the noodle and stock of the soup are good and delicious. However, after I tried the noodle at 好到底 (ho to tai) at yuen long, I will rank Mak's noodle below that.

Didn't have the chance to eat at the Wellington branch, I actually ate at outlet on the Peak. The noodles was very tasty, soup was super good. But it was highly overpriced for such a small bowl of noodles. Heard from my friends that the other outlets were much cheaper, so only eat at the Peak one if you don't... More

I was told that Anthony Bourdaine highly rated this noodle restaurant. I gave it a go and I loved the food. The servings are rather small for me, but the dishes we ordered tasted really good.

I never like Hong Kong's noodle, because i always find it to be rubbery. But Mak's noodle changed my perception, the soup was tasty, the dumplings very delicious, and the noodle's texture just tasted awesome. Location were easy to find, just go from the 100 qrc building and you willd find it, the best noodle i've ever tasted in Hong... More

We had the beef brisket noodles and the dumpling noodle soup, both were excellent and delicious. The handmade noodles were fantastic as expected and the broth was surprisingly delicious as well. The atmosphere and service is typical Hong Kong, you either get used to it or hate it. The only thing is that because Anthony Bourdain has raved about it,... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
