I've been frequenting this place for years as a student and now when I am back in the city and wanting some cheap Chinese food I stop here. The chili garlic sauce is a very good accompaniment to the dishes. Don't expect this to be authentic high end Chinese food. It isn't. It's just good down to earth cheap food.... More

There were 6 of us, three couples who went to this restaurant and we all paid £14.99 per person for the set meal. We had to ask for cutlery after the food arrived and the staff were so miserable. Maybe they think because it is London there will always be passing trade. I hope the visitors to the city read... More

My favourite food on this planet, without a doubt. And I'm not the only one - every time we go we meet Wong Kei veterans who have been loyally making their pilgrimage to the infamous restaurant for years! The food is authentic and full of taste and at an incredible price. One of the cheapest but tastiest places in London... More

I have been going to this restaurant for many, many years (it was recommended to me by a Chinese man) and have always thought the food was fab, even the service was ok, but, went there on sat and the service was really bad, they forgot my order after asking them many times. But what upset me more, was how... More

Although I don't live in central London any more, I'm often in town and if I can, I head up to Chinatown for lunch or dinner. I don't have a favourite restaurant there but instead use I would say three or four depending on how I feel, and what Im going to eat. If its Dim Sum for example, its... More

All my friends have told me that Wong Kei's had changed and it was clear as I walked through the door that the old atmosphere of aggressive and arrogant waiters has disappeared. The food and speed of service is pretty much unchanged. The only real different is the lack of shouting from the staff makes the place much more relaxed... More

Mad, chaotic, bad service at least the staff don't shout at you anymore (actually that was part of the charm). The food is still great value for money, tastes great belying the Chinese greasy spoon surroundings. You can get more delicate, sophisticated Chinese food, I have never failed to leave, happy. One piece of advice if you want more than... More

As with some of the other reviewers, I have been eating there for many years. It started way back in the alley down the street about 40 years ago. If eating on your own, you can sit in the area just inside the door, but two or more diners are sent upstairs, to one of the three floors of dining... More
