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.

I have a dear friend in London who recommended this place, as I walked in I thought this could be a big mistake but I took the plunge....OMG this was horrible .. Not for localvores aka organic eaters.... I fear I will regret this later!
My stomach went upside down with the tea, I knew I was in the wrong place for my tastes....cheap food and boy you can taste it.
I made it through the night, .....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.
Having grown up in London and been a frequent visitor of Chinatown I have known what to come to...more
