I can’t say I’ve visited enough restaurants in Hong Kong to say that Mak’s are the best, but they’re certainly very satisfying and tasty. Unfortunately, over time, the popularity of Mak’s has led to portion sizes decreasing and prices increasing. Compared to what you’d expect to pay in Europe, Mak’s is still good value, but it’s a relative rip-off by Hong Kong standards. That said, a visit to Mak’s is still (just about) a Hong Kong must.

Like every food outlet that gains some popularity, there are many critics of Mak’s, most of whom say the food is overrated. I found my steaming bowl of soup matched my expectations exactly. The wontons were just as plump and delicate, the noodles were as perfectly al dente and the soup was just as stocky and rich as all the descriptions made out. The dish was small but it served as a mid-afternoon snack and the free tea that came with it was a nice extra.

There are a few branches of Mak’s Noodle dotted around Hong Kong (with a branch in Macau as well). I visited the branch at the top of Victoria Peak in the Galleria shopping arcade.
