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.

Ok I can't fault this restaurant other than their too-hilarious-to-be-mad-at-them shoddy service.

Luckily I was armed with the knowledge of very low expectations over the service and the expectation of being very disappointed, that I thought nothing would surprise me but boy, I so wasn't ready for this lol!

When we first arrived I scanned the room and took in the working class Chinese...more

If you want fast, good quality, delicious Chinese food, Wong Kei's is the place in China Town for you!

Stick to something simple and it's delicious - I can highly recommend the half/quarter crispy aromatic duck with pancakes (delicious!), the salt and pepper (chilli) deep fried squid is delicious.

The noodle soup with beef brisket or pork is also really yummy, full of flavour and meat.

Looking for a rough and ready Chinese served at lightning speed at rock bottom prices? Hit up Wong Kei.

Having gained a (somewhat deserved) reputation for its scornful staff slamming down your dishes, disappointingly, it wasn't the case this time. They were fine - not friendly exactly but civil.

Although, we were smelling distance from the toilets. Oh, and one of our tea cups had a faint...more
