Enjoy your fantastic food at great prices (for central London) and get out, they're trying to run a business you know? Don't complain about the service, this is the Won Kei. A few beers in the Porcupine, then as we did, stagger down and prepare to be entertained. Top fun.

The Wong Kei Chinese restaurant is catering on the Speed Channel. I have been going there for about 40 years, they used to be in a small place in Rupert Court, years ago. In those days they gained the reputation of being the rudest waiters in town, however the food was excellent and very cheap. Their premises was pretty dismal.... More

It was a big mistake stepping into this restaurant. Rude attitude, worst food. Being pissed off by the service there. Nothing more to say.

Return to Wong Kei's everything in London business or pleasure. Have eaten at tables with lots of different folks, strangers and even celebs. The food isn't the best chinese food I've ever had, but it's hot, arrives quickly which allows you to get on with the important things. Fantastic for a quick meal before the theatre or cinema. The staff... More

Wong Kei is a bit of a destination spot for students and rowdy friends. It's spacious so your always going to get a table, but this place is almost a comedy. In defense of the people who work there, I'm sure they have to endure a lot of nonsense from their well oiled customers! However, the service is like Fawlty... More

We came here to experience the legendary rudest waiting staff in London...and were not disappointed. The waiters are genuinely narked at having to serve (and not 'an act') and plates of food are almost thrown at you. Having said that, the food is decent (not great) for the prices charged. I still think it is a 'must go and have... More

"I'm not sitting next to the toilet". turning around want to leave I'm suddenly allowed to choose my seat in the almost empty restaurant. Sat down and waited and waited.20 minuntes... More

but I didn't see much difference. A laminated wine list seemed the main difference. A happy non pretentious meal as I have always experienced there for over 22 years. Hot, tasty and cheery.

Wong Kei is situation 50 yards outside China Town which is just a very short walk from Leicester Square. Went for lunch on 11th November 2014 and had the set menu for two for £14.50 each and was extremely pleased with the 2 course meal that we ate. The staff try and put the rude act on, which is what...
