Just ok.

We went in thinking they would be good because they were crowded. Wrong! The food was ok, but nothing special despite the crowds. Would not return.

I just love this place! The food is so tasty at ridiculously low prices. The seating is just like a bad cafe, you have to sit where they tell you (or they just won't serve you) and there are absolutely no frills BUT it's huge and always full. Why? Because you get a pot of tea as soon as you... More

No point mentioning the unforgivably rude staff and the fact that they regularly move diners mid-meal (this appears to appeal to some people), the food here is rank. Disgusting. Limp veg, foul-tasting sauces, mystery meat and just an all-round horrible experience. I would not take my worst enemy to this place. Absolutely vile. Avoid, avoid, avoid!

Biggest mistake during our trip to London this July. A blight in London's food scene and a shame to Chinatown. Service appalling, food not really great, and hygiene conditions in the corridors, floors, and the steps leading to and including the washrooms very dreadful indeed (used tissues lying about in the nooks and crannies, e.g.). But yes, very cheap. Of... More

Really nice Duck pan cakes, Barbecue Roast pork, steamed Sea bass whole, egg fried Rice and a few tiger Beers. The place is busy but the food is very good, spend GBP 90 for meal for 4 for Dinner. Service is fast and basic.

It's fast food , good quality , you get a seat but be prepared for the charm of no service. It's good a reputation and it's fun to experience it. Today all the food was yummy and quick to enable us to get to our next destination. Much better than a McD's.

Who cares if the service is awful, the food is great and extremely cheap. Used to go there since I was a student and I had nothing than a few pounds to spare.

really bad - the food was served on too small plates, with sauces leaking out everywhere. Tap water was served in a measuring plastic jug.Waiter kept throwing things at our table and making a big fuss of answering questions. Then, there were rats in the toilet so I could not even use it. TERRIBLE

Great service from a very nice waiter, who when the little boy at the next table broke a glass & burst into tears, came over to say it was ok, don't worry, he'd take care of it! Good food, battered chairs & tables, staff running at full speed. Just remember to bring cash as they don't take cards.

as ever, big portions and low prices.food well back to standard. braised duck with assorted vegetables really good; ditto assorted meat rice (but not such a wide range of offal as they used to include); and braised aubergine with sea spicy in pot. try them!

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.
