군더더기 없는 깔끔한 국물. 물에 빠진 고기가 싫어 새우완탕누들을 시켰는데 정말 잘한 선택. 얇은 면에 국물이 잘 베어있음. 꼭 누들과 함께 시켜야하는 초이삼은 부담스럽지도 않고 누들과 잘 어울림. 로컬식당이라 영어 메뉴도 없고 말도 안통함. 하지만 설명해주실려고 노력해주심. A neat flavor of soup The soup is...well soaked in thin noodles, so the taste is really good. Adding red vinegar to the soup make it much yammy. Choisam that must be served with is not burdensome and is well suited to noodle soup. There is no English menu and no communication because it is a local restaurant. But the lady try to explain.More

Pro tip: - Love Prawn Noodles? Then you should visit, otherwise skip this place. I originally came across this restaurant on the Michelin Guide as a recommendation for places to eat. So of course my expectations were sky high. Unfortunately, this place did not live...up to the hype. I ordered their most popular item, Prawn Wanton noodle soup. The dish arrived smaller than anticipated and the price was exorbitantly high compared to other items in the area. The food itself was as average as it gets. A small bowl with 4 prawn wantons, soup and extra skinny egg noodles.More

My wife and I like won ton mein (noodle soup with shrimp dumplings) and have tried a number of well-regarded shops specializing in it - this is our favorite. Delicious with quality ingredients and high value. Simple diner ambience, basic service and can be crowded...at peak times. But also in the same location since the 1950s and run by the daughter of the founder, so you're getting a little slice of old Hong Kong.More

During our 6-day stay in HK, my nieces and I dined there 3x. Considering how picky kids are, they still found the dumpling noodle soup and the beef brisket soup very satisfying. They promised to go back there next time we're in town.

Went for a quick bite for lunch and opted for the won ton noodles. The noodles were nice and crunchy. The won ton was very nice too with quality filling. The portion is on the small size but it was ok for me as I...was heading to the restaurant next door for pudding afterwards. The price is average. It was nice and would recommend.More

Really lovely noodles with wonton filled with delicious shrimp and mushroom. My husband had the 'dry' noodles which were also delicious. It's not fancy but service is quick and friendly, quality of the food is excellent so I feel the price is fair.

Was told about this place from a relative who recommended it. The wontons and noodles are nice but portions are small for the price. I’ve had similar that taste just as good and cheaper in Yuen Long. It was near our hotel so I wouldn’t...go out of my way to go there again.More

It is famous so I came here to try. It is still delicious, but it feels like there are similar quality ones elsewhere in Asia. It is also a little pricey for a small bowl of wanton soup, HKD38 if I am not mistaken. Again,...it is a local eatery, so do expect to share table and squeeze a little inside.More

There are wonton noodle soup restaurants all over Hong Kong. But, if you have to pick one, then this is the right one. The bowl is a bit small. One bowl is not enough but two maybe too muck. I should order one wonton noodle...and one with only wonton.More
