Wanton noodle soup really small bowl. Price HKD38 per bowl. Fine crunchy noodles with 4 small wantons (compared to average size here). I must say it tasted very good although too pricey. No wonder it is only half full on a friday lunch time when central is normally crowded with office workers.

I shared my comments about Mak's Noodle last year and recently been there again and nothing changes from the flavour to the standard texture of the noodles. Can't descibe beyond words. Delicious. ( Nope, I still have to pay for my noodles :-) ) Loved the wanton, and the springy texture of the noodle. Since I don't take beef, I... More

I do not understand having noodles laced with Lye (largely known as potassium carbonate / 'potash' / sodium hydroxide) is considered tasty. Having to pay HK$30-40 onwards for a small bowl of wonton noodles. Next is the meat, vegetables all tasted with plenty of MSG - dry feeling on your tongue or throat after consumption. Service was also very local,... More

Ok, I have finished my wonderful wanton from renowned Tsim chai noodle bar literally across the street. Whilst is still fresh on my mind (and my taste buds). I thought I should pop across and tried the Mak noodle bar which I heard was also very good with wanton. What a contrast, whilst Tsim Chai (TC) was very busy, so... More

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
