Fresh prawn wanton!

I went to the branch at Victoria Peak on a drizzling night and ordered a bowl of signature noodle with fresh prawn wantons. The portion wasn't big but the wantons were heavenly good!

Situated on HK island (near Tin Hau Stn), this is a no frills classic noodle joint. If you're looking for authentic Cantonese noodles or congee with a side of greens (Gai lab), this is for you. My husband and I were brought my his uncle, a native of the area and it's clear why this is a local favorite. Noodles... More

I stopped at Mak's Noodle on my way to the elevators and was pleasantly surprised to find such a tasty oasis. You are served a glass of warm tea upon seating at small table and offered the choice of many noodle dishes which range to vegetarian to meat laden. The food is simple, traditional and very nutritious, not to mention... More

Was brought here by a friend and was glad that she did. Fantastic braised beef noodles with wan tun soup. Service was fast and the price reasonable. Worth a visit.

We were seated immediately in a bustling Mak's noodles on Wellington St. The place was small but nice and cool, after escaping the heat of the streets. The place was filled with locals and we quickly made our choice on a Beef Brisket wanton noodle soup and a prawn wanton soup. Both were delicious, but I think the beef was... More

There are a few Mak's noodle restaurants in HK and the one we went is on the Victoria peak. The prawn dumpling (wanton)soup is very simple but the taste is just fantastic. This is one of the truly amazing local dish you don't want to miss. A must try.

what else to say - great wonton (I prefere it with beef and noodles). Go in the evening if you prefer stronger taste of the soup. I like to original one in Wellington street but als other locations in the city are not that bad.

As a past local, I had some of the best wonton soup in my wife during my childhood in Hong Kong. So this place called itself the King Tradition of Wonton Noodle Soup drawn me there. But what a rip-off. Hong Kong style wonton is consisted of shrimps. The best kind contains 2 jumbo shrimps (almost impossible to find nowadays).... More

Nice noodle shop in hong kong. Although all dishes were nicely cooked and fresh, we were expecting greater taste in wonton noodles. The soup was warm and a bit tasteless what was great for my flu caught after a changing hk weather. If you are looking for light taste this the right place though!!!

Small place, simple dishes -- good but not remarkable by my palate. Has a real authentic sense about it. Local joint. Flavors seemed basic, even ancient -- if that is what you're looking for, check it out.

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.
