About

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.

Overall,the food tastes very good! Also...more

As soon as you walk in, they tell you to go upstairs!

This place was great. I was warned ahead of time that the service would be awful, but that wasn't really my experience at all.

The food was dirt cheap, tasted great, had huge portion sizes, and came quickly. The servers aren't necessarily super attentive or overwhelmingly chatty, but who cares? They brought my delicious and reasonably...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.
