Wong Kei Description

Perhaps Chinatown's most famous establishment, this Chinese restaurant sprawls over many floors and can seat a large number of pre-theatre, post-work and plain old hungry diners at any one time. This means the cheap Soho restaurant is perennially busy and service is prompt to the point of veering on being rude, but don't let that put you off. Huge heaps of noodles or bottomless tasty soups for little more than a fiver are worth ordering, as is the chilli sauce on each table, which you should definitely help yourself to.

“I cant believe how rude the staff in this filthy shabby restaurant were. Im glad I didnt see the kitchen because judging by the cold slimy overcooked food that finally arrived it must be revoltig!”

“I used to pronounce the name of this restaurant like 'wonky' - that's one way to describe the layout of the restaurant. The ground floor is generally for the worker who pops in to have a quick lunch or loners, while the top two floors are for groups of diners or simply those who can't stand the idea of eating ona table without a tablecoloth. Upstairs, downstairs regardless, evey customer gets served a complimentary pot of Chinese tea. It's a simple touch which always warms me to this restaurant - it certainly isn't the service which is often boisterous and rushed. But what they lack in service and décor they make up for in quality and quantity. A taste of their belly pork on steaming hot rice or Ho Fun noodles with beef and egg dishes and all is forgiven. These along with their various noodle soups and pancake rolls make Wong Kei a memorable place. Service is fast, portions are more than generous and with most main meals under a fiver you can't complain too much can you? Wong Kei is perfect for a snappy lunchtime meal during the week or a quick hunger stop during a weekend shopping trip. If you become a regular (like me!) you'll find the seemingly severe staff are actually capable of a smile from time to time, and on some very rare occasions, a song!”

“Great value, fast food Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. If you've been out for a few bevvies straight after work and need a bit of quick substance before continuing your drinking Wong Kei's is perfect! Waiters may be a bit severe so don't expect 5 star service but the food although not the best quality is fantastic value and arrives rapidly.”
