Funny name, ok food, ok service. Not the friendlies or cleanest place in Chinatown, but they have their own small parking lot and cheap Char Sui Baos. I haven't tried too many places in Chinatown, but been here a few times and it's not bad. I'll usually get it to go, a few dishes and some baos. There's better options... More

These people have no care nor respect for customers. It's really true especially here that the Chinese have no word for customer service. Not only old white haired lady owner (who wouldn't give me her name to tell you guys who she is), she even had the audacity to say if she wanted people to know she'd write her name... More

I like traditional chinese and have eaten in chinese restaurants in chinatown in phiadelphia and washington d.c. before. The pluses: - Got alot of food for money if you are budget minded - Alot of local... More

I absolutely love this place. Especially Michael, who serves quickly and entertains at the same time. I have been coming here for over 25 years and the food has been good and cheap for all those years. My kids grew up eating here and now this is my granddaughters favorite place to eat. It is open until 3:00 a.m. so... More

We read really good reviews about the food at Won Kok. It was difficult to find, very little parking and the place looks unsanitary at best. The food was good and very large servings (we ordered the #2) but the ambiance is sorely lacking. I would not want to go here after dark. The plates are plastic, the tables are... More

Won Kok is one of my favorite restaurants in LA's Chinatown, especially late at night. It is a funky place with reasonably well-prepared bargain priced food. It is a fun place to hang out informally as you dine among its blue collar clientele including cops and Caltrans workers plus minority group members of all persuasions. I especially like the Won...

I have been coming since I can remember. The place has not changed at all. The food is great. The service not so great when the place is packed. You know the food is good when you see fat cops and a plethora of Mexican families chowing down. The place may look like a dirty clinic but the food is... More

The food is amazing. The restaurant is older but the staff are extremely friendly. They explained what the dishes were and had very fair prices for the portion sizes.

Won Kok doesn't really have a lot of good dishes, but it has the best five spice Chinese beef stew in Chinatown. This dish is one of my favorites and Won Kok's is up there on top...in LA or in SF Chinatown restaurants.
