We went straight to this place after big disappointment with Yung Kee (which is located just few blocks away). In general, the wonton noodle is a must try: the shrimp is so fresh, the wanton skin is so thin and slips down your throat. The skin wraps around a full fresh chunky prawn. The soup itself is also very tasty.... More

I love to pop into this place when in Central - although my all time favourite place is in Wanchai. The shrimp wanton noodle soup is divine and I recently discovered that you can get just the wantons (with no noodles)...which I prefer. The service is curt but efficient. I give it four stars because I don't think it should... More

Visited Tsim Chai Kee (I think) across the street on my last trip because there were more people there. Far superior is the Mak's. The soup has a focused flavor of dried shrimp, the noodles were unusually toothy, the shrimp wontons were almost crisp due to plumpness of the little shrimp, and the only garnish the white part of the...

Had tucked away a note from somewhere that Andrew had popped thru in filming No Reservations......was not chasing the shrimp noodles but wanted to see the Chinese version of brisket. Normal no thrills no spills sterile decor with poor attempt at atmosphere but you cannot eat decorations........busy....plastic.....obviously trading on the "visitation" and aftermath as the surrounding victims were sucking on...

Was brought there by a friend who live in Hong Kong most of the time. He told us about a Michelin star chef serving small bowl wan ton noodle that is superb! Boy he is correct! Great but small portion of wan ton noodle. The noodle is soft and skinny, the wan ton - oh the small shrimp is tasty.... More

small bowl with small wontons. Don't see what the big deal is! Go across the street and you find better and bigger wontons with much lower prices. I've been eating wontons my whole life and this is nothing special. Just because it has been reviewed by a celebrity chef does not mean it is worth going. Much better places in... More

been this place quite a few times and found this place to be very consistent, the wontons are great and the noodle have a bite to it. however, the soup stock is quite classic but id found to be a little too salty for my taste. i think they need to evolves as time goes on to adapt to the... More

It's said everyone should do a heap noodle shop. So, ok. Might as well do ne that has had a brush with some fame. Anthony Bourdain had his noodle experience here that encouraged countless others. The food you ask? Well, we did their signature dish, prawn wonton noodle soup. Wasn't amazing and wasn't bad. To be fair it's what you... More

I've had wanton noodles my whole life and never really put much thought into it until I tried Mak's. The dish seemed unassuming enough. But once you start, you'll realise the attention to detail in every single aspect of the dish. The texture of the noodle is just perfect - not too soft or hard, and just the right amount... More
