Nice little place near Jordan metro station where they serve traditional-style noodles. Very popular with the locals. They serve fast, portions are decent and prices are cheap.

Been here a number of times, my local HK friends swear by the place. Apparently one of the few places making noodles that traditional way. Staff friendly, good great and well worth stopping. It's more of a short lunch/dinner place that somewhere you would stay for a long time. Known for noodles and wontons.

There was a long queue but we managed to get a table for 4 within 5 minutes, which was good. We tried the wanton and dumpling noodles. Servings were small, and each dish cost about 6 AUD/SGD. Will come again.

Mak Man Kee has been my favourite shop for traditional Cantonese Wonton Noodle Soup since long ago. There usually was a queue during peak lunch hours so I chose to visit this time slightly earlier when they just opened at 12:00 noon. The shop was full only minutes after opening, and I was quickly seated at a small table shared... More

This place serves good wanton noodle. The noodle is of nice texture. The wanton is good... but I would prefer bigger piece of prawns inside. Can try if you are near.

This is a shop that specialises in wan tan mee noodle dishes. I had the pork knuckle wan tan mee. The pork tasted great but the noodles are average. Same with my wife's dish. Won tons were great for her. Noodles, nothing special.

As a Chinese native, I am proud to say that this is definitely the best wonton I have had in Hong Kong. The filling of the wonton was shrimp and shrimp only, and I have not found the like of it elsewhere. I would also recommend the beef brisket and the pig trotters. The servers were not very friendly, but... More

This place is a rather small shop, but turnover of customers is fast so you don't have to queue long. The noodles are very springy, and the wontons are good as well. However, the beef brisket wasn't as good as the wontons as they were a bit chewy and didn't really melt in the mouth. However, the soup stock for... More

That's my personal taste like and opinion... the braised pork knuckle is a must but not for those who dislike Chinese fermented bean curd.

Mak Man Kee Noodle Shop is one of Hong Kong's best noodle places. A must try for Hong Kong visitors. We decided to stop in for dinner. It's common to end up sharing a table when the place is crowded and that's what ended up happening. We shared a table with a couple who were very helpful in helping us... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
