Wong Kei restaurant in London's thriving Chinatown serves a variety of Chinese dishes at shared tables. They also offer a takeaway service. The interior is several floors high and the decor is a long way off what might be coined as 'stylish' but the food is quick, inexpensive and authentically Chinese. The service is sometimes thought of as rude, but should be viewed more as efficient. It is a busy restaurant.

UPSTAIRS! Yells the wait staff for a bunch of tourists who are apparently here for the insults and terrible service. Wong Kei reminds me of a place back in San Francisco where a very famous waiter (Edsel Ford Fung of Sam Wo Restaurant) would insult unsuspecting patrons for not tipping, spit in people's food, and slamming food on the table.
I figured with the curt treatment the place is a...more
Wong Kei is notorious amongst local Chinese for serving cheap traditional Chinese food fast with rash (i.e. rude service) in very simple (i.e. old and down-trodden) surroundings. The colours on dishes and tea sets may be worn, I have found lipstick on a cup before, hair on the plate of food, etc.
