“The Reindeer Cafe Wing Yip Building”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I have just come back from visiting the cafe I went as soon as they opened 1.45am on Sundays it is veru popular and its well worth getting there berfore noon. All te staff are very friendly caring and efficient, the food is very authentic and they will make to order off the menu I am vegan and whilst the menu doesn't specifically state this they will do it to order and this is whats so good about the place, the have Baking Dept and a good confectioners Dept producing first class western style cream and fuit cakes, they also make Chinese and Malasyain types cake as well. it is excellently prices and the servings are large, the speciality oriental drinks are nice made with coconut milk red beans and all sorts of other drinks. I love going to the place. Although they are all Chinese they speak clearly in English and you ave to go there to believe it

“The reindeer Cafe, Near Staples Corner”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

I called in on the off chance
It was as busy as can be
Fantastic Chinese food is served
with authenticity
The staff are just exceptional
Each one respectful, and
Their judgement sound
The best around
And it is really friendly

The need to raise their game
when it gets busy
The bustle and the
complete energy
Its there
The food is worthy
of the really the finest kitchen
The ingredients so fresh
yes they’re aware
The clientele is Asian
but nowadays you can see
A really cosmopolitan crowd
that clearly likes to be
Enjoying Sunday lunch there
from 10.30 till 2
and after 11.30
you will probably have
to queue.
They have a lovely menu
and lots of veggies too
Tell them what you want to eat
and they make it up for you

The girls are sweet and caring
joyful even, they
respect you as a customer
and it feels nice
any day
to really be appreciated
At lunch pre lunch or tea
Grass jelly drinks
or red bean drinks
or cakes or buns
they be
all made on the premises
nice cakes
and gateaux’s
and lots of Chinese pastries
that side of things just grows
There’s take away
all freshly cut
again the staff are great
they cut and serve
and sit you down
you never have to wait.

The Reindeer Cafe
really is a splendid place
to go
Take the family
take the children
and if your in the know
the food is so authentic
so fresh, so tasty, and they
turn this standard out
and do it every single day
Its next to Wing Yip’s
super store
where another splendid crew
merchandise their goodies
with people to help you
Really I can’t fault it
It really is so good
The Reindeer Cafe
Don’t forget
as if you ever would

“If you love authentic far eastern food this is the place for you”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

This Cafe is situated within the Wing Yip complex. You cannot book (unless it's a table for 10) you queue at the door and wait.. and oh boy is it worth it ? Oh yes ! The food is delicious and the portions are generous, the service is quick and friendly. The place is full of customers from all far eastern countrys, there cannot be a greater recommendation.
Enjoy !
