Mak's Noodle House they have this crazy price tag of HKD 31 per bowl because they were truly springy, a texture you will never find in Malaysia regardless how they claim they are from Hong Kong. The broth was also extremely flavorful and the prawn dumplings were really fresh. I can now see why they're so renowned even with the... More

Went to Mack's for lunch and had the shrimp wonton with noodle and a side of green veggies. The veggies were forgettable but the soup was delicious. The broth had a lot of flavor and the wontons were cooked perfectly. All in all a very tasty lunch. Warning, for those with american size appetites, they are small but you could... More

I've been on a quest to find great won ton noodles in Hong Kong. This is my favourite so far. I was born in Hong Kong and the way I remember won ton noodles as a kid is that it's found in a small fluorescent lit restaurant. Menus sit under the glass top of your table and you balance on... More

Had the wonton & dumpling noodle soup, got the hor fun (wide rice noodles) instead of egg noodles because we tried the wonton egg noodles at Samdor the other day. For a tiny bowl, it was $50HKD, it wasn't even as good as Samdor's, which was only $28HKD!

I would give this a higher rating if only there was more for what you pay for - it's just not worth it when you can go elsewhere. However, pleasantly surprised by the polite and quick service - very different to the place opposite in terms of friendliness. Ordered the beef brisket noodles - absolutely delicious with some great pieces... More

After a 45 min wait at the peak tram station amongst the crowd of people and sweltering heat, we chanced upon the noodle shop while searching for a dinner locale. Tripadvisor owl logo pasted on the door gives us more confidence to eat here. Was glad the service was prompt and food served fairly quickly.we love the noodles and the... More

The noodle dishes here are simple and delicious. I ordered the beef brisket noodles for lunch, and I got a large plate with plenty of noodles, sauce, and meat. Mak's Noodle keeps its Anthony Bourdain reviews readily accessible inside the restaurant, which focus on the simplicity of the dishes and the complexity of the broths, which together make for some...

With swift service we were served our noodles with curry beef, and brisket wonton noodles soup. It hit the spot for $50 HKD per entree. This is a no frills shop, but good food at a great price.

I have been to Hong Kong probably a dozen times over the past decade, each stay varying in length and purpose (both business and pleasure). The first time I visited this place is because a local friend had recommended it after I asked about good wonton noodle soup. Over a decade later I still visit the very shop I started... More

The food here was simple and delicious. The place was full of locals (so who are we mere travellers to judge!). Service quick. Staff friendly (enough). A great experience overall. Highly recommend for a quick light lunch. And another reviewer mentioned a minimum spend - didnt happen to me. Was probably because they visited in peak times - so fair... More
