    Line moves fairly fast. The curry beef noodle is good but on the spicier side.

    I did like my bowl of beef tendon curry and he loved his beef brisket beef broth... Slippery floor and unapologetic HK attitude

    Don't be scared by the line, it goes fast, and get the beef tendon with curry.

    Well it's safe to say I did not regret standing in the queue for 30 minutes for my delicious bowl of beef slice noodles. Was absolutely mouth watering.

    Really good beef noodle soup, highly recommend their curry e-noodle!! Keep in mind.. might be a 30 mins wait, below average service and sharing table with others.

    Nice beef noodles. Different. Clearer texture. Long queues and very cramped eating. Be careful too, floor is oily and slippery.

    Is it worth the wait? Yup! If super hungry order two bowls or split an extra one with a friend

    I passed by this place everyday because it's so close to my place. There's forever a queue of tourists. I walked in today around 10 when there's no line. I ordered curry beef noodle soup. So good!

    Viv Peng · December 2, 2015
  • Daniel K.

    Overrated and therefore, overpriced for what it is. Beef is too chewy and flavourless. Soup is at best, on par with any old koay teow th'ng you'll find in Penang.

    I really liked their noodles with beef brisket.

    The line looks really long but goes quickly if you're just 1-2 people.

    Super duper good!!! Local food must try!!

    if you're getting takeaway, no need to wait in line. if you do you will upset the lady.

    probably the best beef noodle stew i have had. broth in the regular noodle soup is amazing and fragrant, and the curry is smooth and comforting. strong recommend.

    Beef brisket

    Sorin Ciocan · August 30, 2015

    Excellent beef brisket & efau noodles. I've been told it's best of the kind in HK. Indeed is very tasty. Don't look for anything fancy: you cue to enter, you sit, you eat, you leave.

    Sorin Ciocan · August 30, 2015
  • Sonia S.

    Environment itself could be improved but soup and noodles are truly delicious. Beef very tender. Must try in HK!

    Totally worth the wait!!!

    Always wanted to try their beef brisket. Local favorite hence expect to Q. Small and cramp place but with good ventilation. Would love to try their curry next round. Note the staffs may not be polite

    NeMeSiS · July 16, 2015
  • Roberto T.

    If two bowls is too much, get the beef brisket noodles and a side of the curry (only 10 HKD). Dip some of the noodles and beef into the curry and enjoy.

    Roberto Thais · July 7, 2015
  • Justine T.

    If you go for a late dinner, you can skip the queue.

    Cheap and efficient in typical Hong Kong style. The best beef brisket in HK

    The curry beef brisket noodles was good but the clear beef brisket noodles can be better. The consistently long queue really puts me off too

    Angela Liu · February 12, 2015
  • Steph C.

    Long queue, small portion but its really god damn delicious

    Steph Chan · February 6, 2015
  • Matt T.

    Excellent beef brisket. Curry beef noodles is my favourite. Queues out of the door are there for good reason.

    Matt Ta-Min · January 22, 2015
  • JK

    Taking photo from the end of the queue. Avoid lunch time if you can as the noodles are not fully cooked during rush hours. Beef brisket is good though

    JK · January 20, 2015
  • bear b.

    opens at 1230 and be ready to queue. go for the 牛腩伊麵,

    Brisket like butter with rice noodles in a cramped space. Chinese penicillin.

    Beef brisket is amazing

  • Christine

    Just the best beef brisket in town. Don't be scared by the crowds the service fast😄 Tip: try also the competitive beef brisket at #sisterwah at Tin Hau - still a secret but also sooo good!😍

    Cons: You have to wait one hour outside to get your beef brisket noodles. Pros: Daimn... it's worth it.

    Monkeyking · December 31, 2014
  • Richard F.

    Famed outlet specializing in Beef Brisket/Beef noodles. Choice of Yee Mee, thick noodle in Traditional broth or Curry sauce. Traditional broth is excellent. Be prepared to queue.

    Richard Foo · December 31, 2014

    Long queue and small portion

    This is a nice restaurant. The food is very good and cheap, however I think people on Foursquare are a bit overhyped. Great experience overall, but don't forget you'll have little time to eat.

    The beef noodle was soooo delicious.

    Heffalump Wang · November 30, 2014

    The best beef brisket on the northern part of HK island!

    Brian · November 25, 2014
  • R T.

    It's everything is cracked up to be; crowded, grumpy waiters and great beef brisket noodles. Don't expect good service, but expect the best beef brisket in Hong Kong.

    R Tan · October 31, 2014
  • jwön

    Like all good food in HK, there is always a queue. Kau Kee doesn't disappoint; tender chunks of braised beef, although you need to pick the right noodles. Curry beef also worth a try! 7/10

    jwön · October 24, 2014
  • John P.

    Line out the door at 5:30 pm on a Saturday night. The locals must know something.

    John Paterakis · October 11, 2014
  • Cynthia D.

    Was a little intimidated to eat here bc it's a very local, brusque place, but am happy I did. Dinner for 3 people came to $205 HKD. Beef tendon & curry e-fu noodles + iced coffee for me!

    Cynthia Drescher · October 9, 2014
  • RTWgirl A.

    The beef brisket soup or curried beef brisket soup is the bees knees. Less thank $1US and you'll be craving it forever

    RTWgirl Arnette · October 4, 2014
  • Min Shen T.

    Decent beef noodle!!!

    Min Shen Teh · September 21, 2014
  • Bryan K.

    Favourite beef brisket noodle shop in Hong Kong. Really poor service but nobody seems to care. Used to like the curry one more, but these days I prefer the clear broth one

    Bryan Koo · September 10, 2014
  • R C.

    Feels like you're eating in a very public washroom- definitely worth trying for local experience. Gigantic amount of noodles in a tiny bowl, curry is strong and greasy.
