It was suggested to go to this restaurant by friends. I went here to experience this place and was shocked at the chaos and manic-ness of the place!! Waiters buzzing around, orders arriving wrong, plates and bowls virtually dropped onto the table......it was just bizarre!! It felt like a cafe, and... read more

More like a canteen than a restaurant, but busy, food prompt and tasted good. We had a few post theatre starter snacks; Ribs, Duck, Toast, & Wings. All in all, it was ok for us (mum dad daughter) I wouldn't take a guest there though

Popped in for dinner as me and the wife were absolutely starving and the service was fantastic, we got a seat straight away. The food was to a good standard but I couldn't help but think the portion sizes were far from satisfactory. I had a good mind to complain about one particular plate of sweet and sour chicken and...

Love this place, I've been going for over 20 years. I would describe it as a canteen more than a restaurant. You can turn up alone or with 15 people and they'll fit u in. Try the BBQ pork noodle soup delicious

Wong Kei offer very tasty Chinese food at a very affordable price. There is no service charge and you get free Chinese tea with your meal - usually you'll have to pay at least £1 per person for this and at least 10% service charge on top of your final bill (big savings here). You can grab a quick bite... More

Food takes about 20 minutes to arrive at around 1215. Portions are very generous, Didn't feel overly seasoned with MSG which is good, and a mixture of locals, tourists and group ethnic Chinese visitors from overseas. Service is right to the point but no one was overly obnoxious nor rude which may disappoint some!

Good choice of food - reasonably priced. Child friendly. You will be seated with strangers and cash only transaction. Will visit again.

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.
