I lived in Hong Kong for 16 years and just left (I am of Chinese descent). I keep telling myself and friends that the only thing I will miss about Hong Kong is this noodle shop. Don't expect nice service - you get the traditional rough Hong Kong manners - but the noodles are great. There are only a few... More

Mak's is fine. They make a decent wanton mee for about HKD 40, but the portions are small (I tend to get the brisket AND the won ton noodles to fill me up with a side of veggies). I won't even bother describing how awful the service is in here (although I could say this about tonnes of places in... More

The place was a little hard to find if you're not locally from the area. With today technology, it was manageable. The noodle tasted great. The wontons were very delicious. I thought the food was great and price is average. Will definitely go back when I return to Hong Kong.

The first stop of the day, Mak An Kee (Chung Kee) at 37 Wing Kut Streets. The broth is very clear and strong seafood taste and as usual the prawn dumplings is sensational for local food and I like it with chili oil. It's cheaper then Mak's Noodles.

The Chung Kee Restaurant is better known under another name: Mak Un Kee. As mentioned by previous reviewer, Un means not big. But, I disgree that the Un referred to the portion. The dumpling, noodle and soup are all good. The dumpling is not that tiny. For customers who beeds bigger helpings, they can ask for various size of bowls.... More

Hmm, I really not very like for all wantan noodles in Hong Kong because they got a taste that I cant accept. The portion of wantan noodles in this shop is small.

The "Mak's" or "Mak Un Kee" branding is a web of intrigue, and all the successors to the original founder want to be the real deal, but somehow they seem to co-exist in Hong Kong. While this particular operation is branded "Mak Un Kee", it actually trades as "Chung Kee". In my opinion the fares offered by the various operations... More

The wonton noodles here are so yummy, add some chilli and other sauces. All for about $40. A very satisfying and quick lunch!

Shrimp wonton so fresh they burst and snap when you bite into them and seriously deep-flavored broth. Regular noodles are fine though unexceptional. Sautéed greens super-fresh--I'd advise asking for them without the dollop of uninteresting brown sauce which adds nothing. Not necessarily worth a huge detour but it was near my hotel and I ended up there twice for inexpensive... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
