Handmade noodles with quite a good variety. We tried the mutton noodle. The mutton was braised to perfection. Very tender and flavorful. Chewy handmade noodle. Good customer service too. All staff were smiley and chatted with us.

First time visiting this place for Hakka Noodle. Located at a corner shop of the historical China and Carpenter Street within the Kuching city. Had the noodle with roast pork and mince pork. Noodle is more "springy" than the typical kolo mee noodle in Kuching. The noodle has pork fat cooked with it that make it tasty in my opinion.... More

The shop only serves variations of Hakka noodles - said to be home made and certainly were "springy" and tasted very nice. You can get various toppings and flavours - the classic noodles with pork was fine. Would recommend it for breakfast.

This place is more eatery than restaurant - more for locals having lunch. Great food and a view of the Chingsan Yan Temple.

My usual shop for eating Mutton Noodle and Hakka Noodle. A very popular for Hakka noodle. Place is quite small and there are places to sit outside, and during peak hours, you might have to wait to get a seat. Waiting is well worth the waiting time, cos the noodle is very delicious. A MUST TRY place...

I have not been here for a long time as it is usually hard to find a carpark around this area and more importantly, the noodles here finish very fast and is usually closed by mid day. So I made it a point to go early last weekend and FINALLY got to taste my childhood favourite noodles. Although they have... More

Being a local, I am a regular of the place since I was young. The place is an average coffee shop with 1 stall and is operated by a family. They offer a few noodle choices such as pork, chicken, beef (Taiwan style) and lamb. My all time favourite is the pork noodle, which is noodle served with a few... More
