Anthony Bourdain's recommendation

The wanton noodles are good but it is pricey cause the portion is very small. If I am not mistaken Anthony Bourdain recommended this restaurant. I prefer the one opposite this restaurant,because I find it just as good and is much cheaper.

Was having Mak's noodle when we were at Victoria Peak. This restaurant famous with Sai Yong (small portion noddle) and the Wantnan (dumpling) is delicious.

I have always eaten prawn won ton or beef slice noodle soup across the street for over 25 years off and on, with one year living in Hong Kong. On this trip, my regular noodle shop was closed at 4 pm, so I dropped in here alone for a quick bowl of beef tendon noodle soup. It was super quick... More

I'm a huge noodle fan, and I was glad I came to this place. I didn't mind paying 37-52 HKD for a bowl of awesome noodles. I got them with beef and wantons, and all the components were super tasty and different. Quick and casual and felt authentic.

We were kinda hungry and stucked @ the peak thus leaving us no choice. Knowing that Mak Noodles was highly raved, we decided to try. Choice well made! I'm never a fan of wanton noodles especially in soup. But this is worth paying for! The soup was sweet and not salty! More importantly, we didn't feel thirsty after that. But... More

This place is expensive, however the handmade noodles are great! I have yet to find another cantonese noodle place that matches the quality of this shop.

If you are foreigner visiting HK, the wanton noodle is a must try. It is not like any of those in US, Australia, Europe, Singapore, Malaysia, or parts of Asia. The noodle is well prepared with the right feeling (hard/soft, thickness etc). The soup is also very original. The wanton is simply nice. All properly done in this restaurant. Although... More

I had the beef brisket noodle soup. The soup was thick and full-bodied and the beef brisket was juicy and chewy. However, this famous place seems to have raised its prices and/or shrunk its portions over the years. My bowl of noodles wasn't that large but it cost around HK $40. Worth a try but not great value.

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.
