Always a challenge to park in Loughton, but once you manage it, a meal at Wo Fat really makes up for it. I was introduced to this restaurant over ten years ago by my girlfriend who was already a regular as she lived locally. The first thing you see when you come in is a large tropical marine fish tank.... More

Wow. The quality of food from Wo Fat is something else. By far the best Chinese food I've ever eaten. Our usual Chinese when visiting my grandad in Waltham Abbey wasn't answering the phone, so we decided we'd try somewhere else. My grandad suggested Wo Fat in Loughton because his friends had recommended it. Having just got in from work,... More

This used to be a very fine restaurant both for take away and eating in . It changed ownership a few years ago and there has been a gradual drop in the quality of the food although its still very good . However their delivery service has become so bad that I have decided not to use them any more... More

I am very shocked to see there are terrible reviews at all, as I go to this restaurant very regularly (minimum of twice a month) and always have a brilliant experience there. Even when I try new dishes for a change they are always delicious, hot and rarely a long wait, even when it's busy. They even do a 25%... More

We went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. This is the second time we have visited this Restaurant and I wondered whether it could live up to the expectations of our first visit. Well my wife and I were not disappointed. The staff even remembered us from our first ever visit a couple of months ago!! The restaurant was packed... More

I was recommended to try this restrauant. Starter, soup and main course were not to our taste. Once ordered it was immediately served, plainly reheated food, not freshly cooked. All over flavoured with additives. Told waitress we were not happy and she was never seen again. Only plus was that portions were large. Will not return or recommend.

This is the better Chinese Restaurant in Loughton although that doesn't say much. The food and service is OK but the restaurant could really do with redecorating and updating to inject a bit of enthusiasm back into the place.

Best Chinese in Essex. Beef chow me in and sweet and sour chicken to die for. It was fresh and the beef was so soft.
