Good food

I like the freshly made wanton noodles here. The wanton noodles are very delicious. Although the food is slow but I don't mind. The price of the food is a bit expensive.

Waited 40 minutes just for a few bowls of Noodle. The cha siew is terrible like it came from a supermarket frozen food and Noodle... More

Service was poor, had to wait 45mins. Personally it is not worth waiting, cannot understand why it is crowded and people wait for 45 mins for a plate of wanton mee. The noodles are very hard, tasteless and the wanton dumplings have very little filling in them. If they couldn't serve quickly, why do they accept phone in orders? What... More

As a kid, my dad used to bring me to Ho Seng Kee when they were operating in Johor Bahru town at Jalan Meldrum. That was more than 45 years ago. Now, I still go with my dad and also my family to their present location. In the old days we had to wait quite a while and fast forward... More

The noodle is springy and the wan tan is tasty. We waited for more than 30 minutes even though we were there at around 10.15 am. Go if you have time to spare. We will not.

Probably the best wan tan noodles in the world. I really shouldn't be telling you this. I should keep it secret. The queue for these noodles is long enough already - you can wait for an hour before you get to enjoy them. But Ho Seng Kee deserves all their success, so pull up a blue plastic chair and order...

Gets rather busy so get there early (for lunch). Noodles are nice and firm, seasoning just right. But when I get greedy and have a second (medium sized) bowl, I tend to end up with a headache. Must be whatever magic ingredient in there somehow doesn't agree with me in overdose quantities.
