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.

The roast duck rice was average as well. The meat wasn't terrible but it wasn't great.
And to be honest, it isn't that cheap as well. Oh well. Come here...more
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
When you wind your way up the stairs of Wong Kei, you'll realise that this sprawling plaza of a place is truly labyrinthian and equally the stuff of food based nightmares.
The food as you may know, is not really Wong Kei's selling point, as much as it is a masochistic tourist attraction; the town's hottest perturbing immersive theatrical experience you'll ever go to or like surprise speed...more
