The duck and pork are divine. The chilli sauce is amazing. The beef brisket is also good. The salt and chilli squid is the best I have ever had. Anywhere. The decor is basic but I give it 5 stars for the quality of the food and value for money. I have been eating here for over 12 yrs and... More

Wong kei is not a fancy eatery by anyone's standards, as it is more of a cafe type setting, but the food is always very nice, quite cheap and there is extremely fast service. No matter what size your party you can always expect to be seated as the building is huge. However, if you get sat in the basement... More

I am a massive fan of Wongkei, or at least I used to be. First came here late 70's with the family and all the way thorough out 80's too. In the 90's, Wongkei would be a lifesaver for us poor students as we could eat bowl of noodle soup and rice dish for under £5. Even when working in... More

I visited the Wong Kei with my partner and his son on a busy Saturday. We had the set menu for 3. There was a mixed starter with spring rolls, prawn toast and spicy wings. We then had crispy duck pancakes followed by 3 huge dishes of sweet & sour chicken, beef and a vegetable dish. There was also a... More

Everything is OK here, but nothing is special. The staff weren't even particularly rude to us! I had a nice meal with good friends but I am very unlikely to return.

If you want to see what dining in China is like this is the place for you; large round tables shared with strangers, food you don't see in mainstream Westernised restaurants and blunt, matter of fact servers. If you like smiley and friendly waiting staff don't go here. However, if you like good value and good food then this is... More

35 years ago, the Wong Kei was infamous for the rudeness of its waiters, the grubbiness of its decor, and its absolute refusal to take anything but cash. BUT...for half of the price of the competition you got enough food to stun a pig and you didn't need a reservation. Sadly, the waiters are far less abrupt and the prices... More

Went here with sister & brother in law as husband wanted to for nostalgic reasons. The rating outside which said 2 stars (needs improvement) wasn't wrong. It was awful. The place is dirty and the staff are very unfriendly. Really don't know how they survive. The food was ok but put off it by the state of the surroundings. The... More
