THE Top 5 Spots for Hong Kong Pan-Fried Noodles 

Something every foodie should know: Hong Kong-style pan-fried noodle is like a culinary chameleon. 

This dish can be different from restaurant to restaurant because there’s no standard recipe for it. Each restaurant or chef may use different ingredients, sauces, and cooking techniques to create their own unique version, so there’s always something new to look forward to. 

Now, if you’re craving these pan-fried noodles, you’re in for a treat! Today, we rounded up the best spots for Hong Kong-style pan-fried noodles in Hong Kong!

Address: 48 Kweilin St, Un Chau, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2386 3533

Operating hours: 

  • Monday to Sunday – 11:30 AM to 10 PM

If you’re looking for an old-school noodle restaurant, look no further than Lau Sum Kee Noodle on Kweilin Street. This more than 60-year-old restaurant carries on the tradition of manually kneading dough using a heavy bamboo pole so customers can enjoy firm and springy textured noodles. 

Make sure to try their pan-fried noodles with dried shrimp roe and pickled radish on the side. It’s our go-to order if we’re craving an umami explosion. 

Aside from the pan-fried noodles, you can also try their best-selling signature dishes like the wonton noodles with prawns or pork. You can also choose to add more toppings for their wonton noodles if you want!

Moreover, it was awarded Bib Gourmand by Michelin. This means that this noodle shop is recognized as a friendly establishment that serves good quality food at moderate prices.  

Pro tip:

Lau Sum Kee is not as spacious as other restaurants in the area, and it’s always bustling with customers, especially during lunchtime, so be ready to eat in a tiny space or share a table with strangers. 

Chee Kei 

Address: 52 Lock Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2368 2528

Operating hours: 

  • Monday to Saturday – 11 AM to 9 PM
  • Sunday – Closed 

Chee Kei has been serving local cuisine in Tsim Sha Tsui since 1994. 

If you don’t want to fight your way out of a large crowd to taste authentic Hong Kong-style noodles and wontons, check out Chee Kei! It’s a spacious and airy restaurant that can accommodate many customers, so it’s quite different from the typical hole-in-the-wall restaurants and bars in the area. 

Chee Kei is famous for its Sai Yung snack — a small bowl of wonton noodles. Plus, their dry and fried noodles are must-tries, too. Just pair the dry noodles with some shrimp wontons or beef brisket tendon, and you’re good to go.

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, we also recommend their set menus. Many dishes here are offered in combos with lots of side dishes, so come hungry! 

Pro tip:

If you dine here, make sure to have some cash with you because debit and credit cards are not accepted here.

Address: G/F, 51號 Parkes St, Jordan, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 

Operating hours: 

  • Monday to Saturday – 7:30 AM to 12 AM
  • Sunday – Closed

Another Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant on our list is Mak Man Kee Noodle Shop. 

This noodle shop was founded in 1950, and its recipes are passed down by a Cantonese cook, Mak Woon-chi. He’s not just any ordinary cook because Mak is recognized as Hong Kong’s Father of Wonton Noodles.

Mak Man Kee is known for its delicate tiger prawn wontons hidden under springy noodles and flavorful broth. 

However, if you want some variety, you can also check out their chow mein and dry noodles tossed in shrimp roe or oyster sauce. You can also top it with some tender and tasty pork trotters. 

Just be ready to bump elbows throughout your entire meal because there’s very little space between tables! 

Pro tip:

The portion sizes of dishes in this restaurant are rather small, so we suggest you order dish combos or sets to save more and make the most of your visit. 

Tak Fung Noodles Restaurant


Address: 145A Kweilin St, Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2748 0755

Operating hours: 

  • Monday to Sunday – Open 24 hours

If you wish to indulge in a variety of authentic Cantonese comfort food, Tak Fung Noodles Restaurant should be on your must-visit list. 

This restaurant offers Chaozhou-style cuisine, a limited English menu, and vegetarian dishes, so it can cater to a whole lot of tastes and dietary preferences. 

Here, you can try a variety of flavorful dishes like pork chop buns, oyster congee, beef brisket wontons,  clay pot rice, and, of course, pan-fried noodles. 

Apart from that, it’s also a Cha chaan teng restaurant, so you can wash down your heavy meal with some hot tea or a glass of iced Yuenyeung.

Pro tip:

If the usual hustle and bustle of the Sham Shui Po crowd isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Tak Fung Noodles Restaurant is open 24 hours every day and does deliveries via delivery services like Deliveroo and Foodpanda. 

Kai Kee Noodles

Address: 15C Carnarvon Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2301 2099

Operating hours: 

  • Monday to Saturday – 7:30 AM to 12 AM
  • Sunday – Closed 

If you’re checking out the top local sights in Tsim Sha Tsui and hunger strikes, come over to Kai Kee Noodles. 

It’s a popular spot for tourists and locals because the meals in this hole-in-the-wall noodle shop are significantly cheaper compared to other restaurants in the area. 

One of the best sellers of this noodle shop is their dry noodles stirred in dark soy sauce and topped with fried cuttlefish balls and seaweed. You can also opt for pan-fried or deep-fried noodles for this dish. 

Besides that, Kai Kee also offers an array of dishes like Shrimp Wonton Soup, Deep Fried Fish Slices,  and Beef Brisket Noodles.

Pro tip:

The wonton soups and noodles here are kind of on the bland side for us ( and many customers comment on this too). So, if you’re like us, we suggest you toss in some chili sauce on the side to spice things up a bit!
