It took 25mins to line up, sit, order, eat and then pay. Kau Kee is an extremely well run operation delivering some of the best food we’ve had in Hong Kong! My beef brisket with noodles and broth was perfection in a bowl. My wife,...More

Came here for dinner to try its famous beef brisket noodles. The soup base is flavorful. The dining experience isn’t. In the small space, the waiters cramp everyone in. I was alone, and asked to share a round table measuring ~1.2m in diameter with 6...More

Portions of beef were value for money, broth was to die for. Service was quick and efficient. Definitely worth the 45 minutes wait! ;) Try to come earlier as queue starts forming extremely quickly after 11.15am!
