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 phenomenal.

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.

I have to say the restaurant does not look like much. An old run down small crowded place. BUT the food I had was very good. I ordered the Beefsteak with Chinese Broccoli. The serving was huge; I couldn't eat all of it. The vegetables were almost perfect. ( I like them a little more tender). The meat was extremely tender. I was expecting something with oyster sauce, but was not disappointed. This had a very lightly flavored sauce. I also had an order of fried wontons which were beautifully crispy and very flavorful. Interestingly they were served with a small bowl of ketchup and Chinese hot mustard.

I noticed that the food that others (mostly Asians) ordered looked equally beautiful and were all giant sized. I would definitely go back.
