This place hasn't changed one bit, still the same old Wong Kei's with its untouched worn-out interior. However they have managed to get some new menu's in but all the food is relatively the same (which is a good thing). Decent portions with decent pricing, so can't really complain. Me and my friends use to go here almost every Friday... More

I do agree with some of the recent reviews, the food at this place, specifically the stuff done in the kitchen i.e. fried noodles, fried vegetables, just anything really that's done in a wok and comes with some sauce, seriously lacks the correct seasoning. It's more expensive than it was before (like £1 per dish?!), but still dirt cheap. If... More

I had a lunch time meal here with work colleagues. The food quality and quantity was very good as was the price. The service was workman like with little flair and was direct. But to be fair the staff were not rude and did all that was asked of them. The setting is clean but is far from glamorous. Given... More

Was my favourite restaurant for 40 years, but will not go there again. The Won Ton Soup tastes as if from a packet. The won ton includes shrimps. Singapore stir fry: New Recipe? Tasteless. Very poor in comparison with the old recipe which lasted over 40 years! Jasmine Tea: Used to be so good. Now it is almost tasteless! And... More

After spending 10 days in Italy eating pizza & pasta once back in London, we decided we wanted something completely different for dinner. Having Chinatown on your doorstep is a luxury we had yet to take fully advantage of being put off by the large swathes of tourists... However on this occasion the thought of eating some delicious Chinese food... More

I love going there for a chinese treat. Their food is excellent, you get the tradicional chinese treatment that you would expect for a good chinese restaurant. I been there several times, before was ok now is excellent. They did some modifications including a little price increase but it is worthy. Keep up the good work.

By Marmite I always thought of the place as Marmite i.e. you either love it or hate it, as everyone I know is at one end of the spectrum. Personally I love the place, as long as you understand how it works. I always consider this place as a great place for good food at reasonable prices, just don’t go... More

I have known this place for 15 years - I've seen customers getting thrown out and intimidated by ignorant , aggressive waiters, gang style. I've seen people just stare into their soups when a customer is getting mistreated by one or more waiters - I stopped going for about 5 years after being a recipient of extreme rudeness myself. Then... More

1st time back in London after 10 yrs abroad and one of my places to visit was Wong Keis. Food was the same good wholesome quality and yes I think the rumors are true... the serving team are slightly more polite! Hoping it will not be another decade before I see this place again.
