The ENTIRE staff here was unbelievably rude, so don't be surprised if you step in and the first question you get is "What do you want?" They were irritated by almost any customer coming in, and the experience was so unpleasant that it ruined my appetite, and of course, they didn't care. Should I have left a tip?

Visited as a family, we were told to go upstairs where we were seated at a round table. We had a set menu which was really good value. The food was very tasty, service is efficient, free jasmine tea is very nice. Staff are very abrupt and unfriendly but food made up for it. Restaurant is huge and very busy.

Been coming here for over 25 years and was always absolutely fantastic but in more recent years its food quality has gone downhill and they just round up your bill, definately alot more pricey now too.

At Wong kei we were instantly ushered upstairs. Downstairs is very barebones. Looks like a cafeteria and is filled with a Chinese looking population. Always a good sign at a Chinese restaurant. Upstairs what looks to be a more international audience is seated at communal Large round tables. I'd heard that the service was a bit surly and yes, that... More

The food is good and the portion is generous BUT the owner, manager, supervisor and staffs are absolutely rude to the max. That made the whole dining experience so disappointing. If you are fine with all the crude words that are hurled along this restaurant, please feel free to go in and be abused verbally.

Wong Kei is built for efficiency, with many tables quite tightly packed in and diners seated with strangers. The food comes out very quickly, and is in my experience delicious. Portion sizes are generous. The staff do not speak much English and aren't particularly polite, but it ticks most boxes and I'd highly recommend it for a quick dinner with... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
