“A Must Try Wonton Noodles in Hong Kong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

For wonton noodle lovers, this is the place to go in Hong Kong.

We went to the one in Wellington Street (MTR Central – exit D2). We were just arrived in Hong Kong and after checking in went straight to find this restaurant.
It was not difficult to find it; the location is exactly shown as in Google Map.

Basically the menu is about noodles. There are options of having the noodles with King Prawn Wonton, Fish Balls, Sliced Beef, etc. We ordered the one portion of Noodles with King Prawn Wonton, and one portion of Noodles with Wonton and Fish Balls.

The winner is the King Prawn Wonton. It is very juice, succulent, and very tasty, too. The prawn meat was cut into chunks so we could still taste the texture of the prawn. The fish balls were just so-so, not very tasty but not bad either. Just be warn that the fish balls are not the regular white-color-fishballs; they were light grey in color as they are homemade and contains lots of real fish meat.

The noodle itself is also good. It was cooked al dente, so it still retained its shape and firmness after being soaked in the hot soup broth.

The soup broth is also worth noting. Especially for us, who were having the meal in the early winter evening. The warm and very tasty broth is a perfect complement for the noodles and the wontons.

The spicy chili condiment is made from dried chili mixed with some other spiced and oil. It goes very well, too, with the dish. There are other wonton noddle who use chili sauce instead of chili oil, but majority prefer chili oil to go with this wonton noddle.

“Cheap and cheerful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

An authentic Hong Kong experience. Arrived about 7.00pm and almost full. By the time we left there was no space left. Serving sizes were generous, the fish balls huge, the wontons delicate and the sliced beef tender and pink. Vegetables crisp and tasty. Beware if you are not adept with chopsticks, no napkins are offered. Also take note of the cost of your meal, the bill is not itemised, and the cashier less than forthcoming as to the amount owed. Well worth it though.

“You gotta Go here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

This place is the best won ton soup in Hong Kong, so likely the world. We ate here, its a no frills come in sit down order your soup ( try the giant prawn won ton soup), and pay. Sometimes you might get your own small table, other times you might eat at the staff table, like we did, but its all good... no great.

“Authentic, inexpensive, quick”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Stopped in by chance just after opening and there were already plenty of diners enjoying the fresh noodle soups. Very inexpensive and an authentic Hong Kong experience. Lots of places to choose from on Wellington Street but this was a good spot for a quick lunch while exploring Central.

“One of the best wanton in Hongkong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Huge and succulent wantons, tender beef slices, and a hearty broth. Nothing else I can ask for.

Went on a off-peak hour (around 3pm on a weekday) and the restaurant was relatively empty. Hence, we received a more attentive service from the server, who even chatted with us quite a bit.
