    Food is ok, however I had the worst service ever! It was so insulting the way we were treated in that place that I have no words to discribe it. If you are like me and despite rudeness, STAY AWAY

    Used 2b regular. Service never the best, recently it gets worse. We paid at the counter, they gave us out change back minus £2 tips that they put straight into their bucket without our consent! Avoid.

    Was my go to place for cheap food but after they ripped me off just for £2 I shan't be going anymore. Good business model!
  • Jonathan C.
    Jonathan ChooSeptember 18, 2016
    Returned me less in change and then immediately put the rest into the 'tip' box. Pretty damn rude as it is up to the customer to decide whatever if any tips we should give. This is not America mate.

    Worst food ever tried!!I've had the meat and rice dish and the meat was awfully greasy and chewy. They also never bothered to bring one of the dishes we've ordered, as they were "too busy". Neveragain

    One of the best meals in London - Sweet & Sour chicken on white rice. Consistently fantastic. Get the dish that comes with rice for ~£5 and good size. Bottomless tea too!

    If you are alone, you will be asked to join any table at the ground floor. Otherwise upstairs or downstairs. They offer free Chinese tea. No service charge added to your bill. Authentic Chinese food!

    Wong Kei 旺記 is Cantonese Chinese. 旺Wong is popular and 記Kei is the Chinese version of 's. 記 is pronounced like "Gay" in Cantonese but locals pronounce Kei like "Key" in English (記 is"Ji" in Mandarin)
