“Best Chinese in the area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

As a connoseur of chinese food having eaten in Gerrard Street from an early age and having eaten in some of the best chinese restaurants in London, I would have to say that Wo Fat is the best Chinese you can get in the local area. It is authentic and they use good quality ingredients not too greasy and has nothing of the "shopping centre" chinese taste that so many other local restaurants do.

The staff are polite and welcoming and you are always greeted with a smile. What I particularly like is the fact that they dont do those awful "all you can eat" buffet style menus which to my taste are over priced and they always catch you out on the price of drinks.

Much better than Chongs and Jasmine (where I found a dead wasp in my food!)

Yes definately the best chinese in the area.

“Salty, tasty, fast service, fair price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

It's not the Good Earth, but the prices don't cost the Earth either. We had set menu C. I'm not usually a set menu person but I liked the dishes on the menu and we just wanted a 'quick' meal.

Food was well cooked, rib bites salty, everything as you would expect. Duck was perfect, although the pancakes quite sticky. Main courses piping hot and not greasy.

Can't complain with anything, service extremely fast and attentive. Price was around £23 a head for us, no wine, water and soft drinks.

For a local Chinese meal it does the job. If I wanted something special I'd go to The Good Earth in Mill HIll or Esher.

We get our take aways from this restaurant and they deliver as well.
