The line was very long and since I was staying in a hotel nearby, I ordered the noodles to go. The whole line of people were staring at me. I tell you it's a great hack! I know there are lots of complaints about service...More

Every time we eat here there is a huge crowed waiting in front. Get in line and after 5-15min your in. Beef brisket noodle soup is very good and the Hong Kongers come here in ever attire (from construction worker to chic evening dress). Soup...More

We were recommended this place and found it at 12.30 with a short queue. It was run very profitably like a tourist express dining shop. With a minimum spend of HK$50/head, they cramp diners at every space available in their two-storey shop. We shared a...More

Someone, somewhere, has convinced mainland tourists they must eat here. If only I had the power to speak to each of the 1.3 billion personally, and convince them otherwise. At 2:30 PM on a Tuesday, this cramped place had a waiting queue. We got in...More

I would not recommend Kau Kee for vegetarian food at all but if you must go, I think they do serve a “Noodles only” version that contains no meat. Just be okay with the fact the making of the broth does involve meat... More
