I was in London for a mid week date with hubby, and as we were in the area thought I check out one of my old haunts for lunch. They were not busy so service was quick. the two meals were brought were great value and lovely.

The food at Wong Kei is awesome. The restaurant itself is a bit run down but it somehow fits in. The staff is a bit cold and not very friendly but that doesn't matter because the food is just great.

I have been eating here for 35 years and I love it. If you want fast, good quality canteen food this place is a must. The menu is extensive - you need to know what is especially good here - the chilli sauce on the tables is smoky and delicious. The wontons are freshly made - this place is pure... More

Terrible service from staff ruined our mood and tables atmosphere. When asked for cutlery, Forks and spoons were chucked in the middle of the table. Main meals arrived at different times instead of altogether so we had to wait for the food. Food was a letdown. Staff rude as hell, rushing us to order, made side remarks in front of... More

Came here with my family- food was average, nothing special at all. Staff were rude (that's typical) and service was extremely poor. Had the mixed meat and rice and ho fun fried noodles. Noodles were greasy and rice was ok. Won't be coming back again. You can tell if it's a good place or not depending on the customers- here... More

Tonight had excellent wanton noodle soup (couldn't eat it all actually a substantial meal) and son had peking duck. Lots of jasmin tea. some prawn sesame toasts and a bill of less than £12 per head.

Can't fault quality food, fast service and efficient-staff were pleasant enough and attentive, not like the old days!! Well worth visiting for the ambience and experience, but more importantly great tasting food in large portions at decent Chinatown prices!

I haven't been for years and all I remembered was so so food (but cheap) and rude waiters -people literally shouting "upstairs upstairs!' at you and being told to leave after lingering slightly. Went again today on a reasonably busy lunch time -and the service was perfectly fine -and the food was pretty good-and at £14.40 for 3 people (2... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
