We are here yesterday about 7 pm . It's basic , service slightly better than it was yrs ago when it was noted for rude waiters . Food was mediocre, generous portions and wasn't expensive . It's not a place you would pick for a special meal or a date night but OK if you want a fast cheap standard... More

I just love this place, the food is great and you would not have to wait long for your meal - a pot of green tea is placed at your table as soon as you sit down. I know some people would be put of with the staff as they can come across as abrupt but I believe that to... More

I'be been going to this place for many many years. Service is always dreadful to appalling , which is completely inline with the restaurants character and it's not changed for years. The food is good, inexpensive and one of the best dishes is deep fried squid with chilli and salt. It's freshly prepared, real chuncky succulent pieces of squid with... More

Had may meals here when I worked regularly in London in the 80's. Then it was a fast and furious dining experience. I'm glad to say, it doesn't seem to have changed - which is great! Be prepared to share tables if you're a couple. Luckily we had a foursome so got our own table. The complimentary tea is so... More

When I was younger, we used to go to Wong Kei every weekend when we were in central London and it was always fantastic. So we I decided to go last month, after a very long break, it was like a blast from the past. The waiters were quick in taking our order and then bringing it to us. You... More

I came here when I was in my 20's so I thought I'd take my children while on a trip to London (now I'm in my 40's). I explained to them beforehand that it is like a fast moving cafe with abrupt staff but fantastic food and it still was! We probably ordered too much but the food was divine... More

I first went to Wong Kei as a student in the 1980s when the food was good and cheap whilst the legendary rudeness of staff was then a point of amusement and novelty. Now the agrressive 'customer always wrong' attitude of staff there is just tiresome, unnecessary and, given the heightened competition (compared to the restaurants available 30 years ago)... More

The first time I went to Wong Kei was in 1980. At the time it was a small two story cafe down a nearby pedestrian alley Rupert Court. I remember sitting at the tiny two person table by the serving station on the ground floor and a waiter smashing a china plate on the edge of our table and threatening... More

I am a 'old hand' at Wong Keis, having first attended as a student in the early 1990s and post clubbing. Although the last experience I had with the reluctant attendance of my wife was not great, I still eat here from time to time

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.
