walked past this eatery and wondered why there was such a long queue outside in the cold. Curious, we doubled back a few hours later (no Q!) and sat down for supper.Ordered a bowl of wanton noodles to share, with a side order of kai lan with oyster sauce and soya bean drink. The wanton soup was flavorful, the noodles were springy, and the wantons were big and stuffed with juicy prawns.The vegetables were blanched just the right level of crunchiness too.This is well worth your while.

Stopped by as part of a good tour - the wontons were very large and very good. The broth was also excellent with some red vinegar added. The noodles were not as strong as the other components but overall a great place for a quick lunch.

With high rentals, it is not easy to find a noodle place on street level (the shop's entrance is street level but you need to walk down a short flight of stairs to the basement). It's location is easy to find and is walking distance from Central train stop. Menu is short and simple with English translation. You get to choose the yellow noodles (which I like) or flat white noodles or vermicelli. You also can choose wontons and/or minced carp fish or fresh sliced beef. I will post photos of the menu and the noodle I had. I usually eat the yellow noodles first as I like them al dante. If they are soaked too long in the soup, they get softer. Condiments include soya sauce, vinegar, pepper and yummy chilli oil. What I really appreciate about this place is that it is spacious and tables are not squeezed next to each other. Most of their tables sit 4 or 2 persons and you do not feel squeezed at all. Service is polite and fast. To avoid crowds, go between 11 am to 12.20 pm for lunch.

Simple. Cheap. Tasty. Delightfully grumpy service. Order as soon as they give you the menu to avoid excessive gesticulations later. Gets crazy busy by 11.30am.
