Had some fresh beef congee and it was delicious! The beef congee was fresh and the congee was very smooth. It is very reasonable for a decent bowl at HKD27. Tried their breakfast of instant noodles as well. Average so I will stick to my congee the next time

It was early and the queue was already long. We were 2 adults and 2 kids but there wasn't a table to seat us all so we had to split 1 adult and 1 kid to two tables. Don't expect great service but the food more than makes up for it. Great congee at affordable prices!

Went to have breakfast with friends and had a delicious bowl of century egg congee with the ever popular you tiao. Nothing fancy, simply tasty. We went early in the morning (within half an hour of opening time) and there were plenty of seats around.

There are plenty of food bloggers, food critics, writers on various media: online, TV, newspaper, magazines, travel guides that sing the praise for them more eloquently and succinctly and the way the newer generation owners operate with their sharp business acumen, hard work, dedication to their craft, good inexpensive food friendliness, efficiency this restaurant (now a mini chain) is NOT...

Sang Kee's Dace Fish Belly Congee is a must have whenever I'm in Hong Kong. The dace fish belly is so fresh. They are sliced to the right thickness to be tender when cooked. The special sauce together with the fresh cut ginger, spring onion and youtiao enhance the whole experience in this cool weather. Oh yes, sip the milk... More

If you like conee, don't miss this place. You should visit if you don't like congee as they do have fired noodles. Plenty of variety for you to choose your congee selection.

I thought the congee was brilliant. Tastiest congee I've had in ages, I'll recommend the fish and then the beef. We went a couple of times for breakfast, they have an English menu and can get busy on Saturday. Very yummy highly recommended.

A stone's throw away from bustling Central is this local favorite. It's great for breakfast on a cold winter morning. The preserved egg and meat congee is my go-to favorite!

History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces.
