10 years ago I had Mak's noodles In Central. Delicious but expensive and tiny portions. Last week I tried the noodles in a branch at the Peak. Wontons and dumplings were tasty but the soup was tepid n noodles mediocre. Don't bother. The day after I had out of the world noodles in Causeway Bay at a hole in the... More

We ordered the wonton and dumpling noodle soup each, which came in a small bowl (common in HK). Decent flavours, only total of 4-5 dumplings/wontons. If you're hungry, you'd probably need two bowls and/or additional dishes. Service was underwhelming (as expected for a small restaurant) but prices ok. Overall, the place was somewhat overrated.

After hearing recommendations to try Mak's Noodles, we finally did. There were also articles pasted around the shop, and one with Anthony Bourdain on it, so it was setting up the expectation for a great bowl of noodles. The noodles were nice and crisp, the broth was tasty, but all in all, it was not truly exceptional. Each bowl of... More

the 'mak' family claims to have invented wonton noodles many years ago. There are two carry the name, Mak Un Kee and Mak Shiu Kee. Mak Un Kee is the only proper one, and do visit, Mak Shiu Kee is definately a no go. Noodles were crisp and cooked perfectly (al dente!). Soup was fresh and had all the right... More

My friend and I came here for lunch as the beginning of a day doing things Hong Kong. We each had a bowl of wonton noodles...I was tempted to try the plate of tendon or add some vegetables, but we were on a moveable feast, so we kept to the wonton noodles. The shrimp were very fresh, bouncing off the... More

Everything moves at a very fast pace here. Well, maybe this is Hong Kong after all. I ordered a bowl of wanton noodles while my wife ordered beef brisket noodles. I was happy with my order, so was she. The soup was tasty and the shrimp wanton was superb. Be prepared to share table with total strangers due to limited... More

Very nice wan ton soup and beef stews. Staff are generally proficient and friendly. This store is a bit off causeway so takes a while to find. IF you can see Uniqlo, walk across the street and straight down about 3 minutes should see the shop's sign. In that respect, it is also generally easier to find a seat and... More

This place has gone down hill big time, originally recommended to us by friends but all of the noodles were dry and awful, the shrimp tasted funny and the meat was poor quality. Come to Fang Wu, next door, handmade dumplings and a real Michelin star.

It's a tiny little place with a limited menu and basic wanton noodles. But, that's what makes it so good! We came before the lunch crowd and were seated immediately. The server was not super friendly but was very quick and efficient. You can watch the noodle cook working in a small glass room - billowing steam - at the... More
