Lan Kwai-Fong

A cheap and cheerful Chinese in Oud Metha

Time Out Says

Lan Kwai Fong is not fancy in the slightest, which makes it perfect for any post-work haggardness and a frills-free meal. A perusal of the menu will also cause your mood to lift even further; it’s varied, cheerful and super cheap.

It’s on the shabbier side now – and by no means as good as it was – but service is spot on, with wait staff happy explain the menu and make recommendations and adjustments to dishes.

Food arrives quickly and the portion sizes are very generous – get ready for to take away some leftovers. Stir-fried tofu with vegetables is fresh and crunchy, while wok-fried chicken with black bean and chilli is fragrant and full of flavour.

A handful of sweets with the (modest) bill is a nice touch, and rounds off a decent meal.

For a low-key, cheap and cheerful experience, Lan Kwai Fong is worth a visit. Keep expectations on the low side, and you’ll be happy.

The Bottom line
