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.

Like the other reviews have said, the workers are not exactly the most welcoming or helpful and at times rude. As a first-timer at Wong Kei who was a little overwhelmed at the many choices, a waiter came over after 2 minutes of seating us told us to stop wasting her time when we couldn't tell her what we wanted to order, even though the restaurant wasn't packed. But regardless, we were...more
Apparently it's been a long time since the good old days of waiters telling you to piss off because there's a queue outside and being amusingly rude. Anyway, they're still reasonably priced (cash only, folks) and the food remains good. I wouldn't say it's a life changing culinary experience, but it usually delivers and I never had to send anything back. The trick is to order food from the back...more
