A great little place in the middle of Temple Street night market. As others have said, at first glance it looks nothing special - laminated chipboard tables with plastic bowls and chopsticks and a menu with pictures (often a dodgey sign in my experience), but what attracted us was that it was buzzing (always a good sign!). Wipe away those... More

This place is in the middle of the night market. It doesn't look much as plastic stools, plates and chop sticks. Don't be put off or scared of trying this, the food was amazing. We ordered a starter to share, a noodle dish and a sweet and sour chicken. It is not mind like a Western restaurant. They just bring... More

This is the second time my family and I have eat here on our recent trip to Hong Kong! A must to eat is the Singapore noddles dish and the special fried rice with scrimp! The service is very quick and the beer is cold. I would recommend eating here to any traveller!

This is the place to eat in the market. We've been eating here for 10 years. Never an issue. The Salt and pepper squid soy sauce noodles and garlic chilli prawns are fantastic.

this place is popular and the food is very good. The price was ridiculous at the end...but we enjoyed the food. Just be sure to bring plenty of cash if you're going to eat here.

Don't let the over enthusiastic waitresses trying to get you to sit for food while you walk through the markets put you off. It doesn't look the best of places and you may even be quite sceptical, we certainly were at first. However, we had been told that you must eat some 'street food' while your in the city so... More

Tourist Cantonese food but it is really good food. It's not the cheapest but the food is really good and a beer is a reasonable price. Definitely worth visiting

We popped in here after a bit of shopping at the Temple Street Night market. The location is great; right in the middle of all of the hustle and bustle which makes for a great atmosphere and you feel like you are in the "real" Hong Kong. We sat outside which was lovely on a balmy night. We were not... More

The food was tasty. We had duck, rice, and crab. Also, it was the first restaurant in HK that gave napkins.

We ate here after explore the Temple Street Night Market. It is on one of the main corners of the market so there is good people watching while you eat. It isn't super cheap but better than indoor restaurants and the food was very good. They have both seafood and meat dishes. The restaurant has tubs with all kinds of... More
