Fabulous meal, great service, well priced and a perfect place for a long lunch. Waiting staff totally in tune with the customer. Steamed sea bass was out of this world, squid cooked perfectly I could go on and on.

Went there with my cousins. It was a surprise since they knew I loved Chinese. I must say it was the best meal I had in my 10 days stay. I still dont know which menu they ordered but everything was just perfect from the duck to the sesame prawns on toast.. It was the first time at a Chinese... More

Never disappointed with this family favourite. Have been coming for over 10 years and have not had a bad meal yet, even order delivery regularly and it's always delivered hot and fresh off the cooker. We have so many favourite dishes, can't name them all but I would definitely recommend Wo Fat if you're looking for Chinese food in Loughton.

I like the food at Wo Fat we get it a lot for a take away, I just can't stand how they speak to you on the phone which is rushed and rude it can easily put you off from ordering from them

We have been quite a few times to wo fat in Loughton, the service is fantastic, and the food is amazing. The only down side is that the Restaraunt is in need of updating and looks a bit tired, other than that can't fault it.

Menu is wide even though not as wide as many Chinese restaurant (thank god). There is an interesting set menu selection that you must take in consideration of you want to get out with a full stomach with a low spending. Service is everything but rushed and waiting staff very kind and focuses on keeping the table clean. Food is... More

We have been eating at this restaurant for about 20 years. When Patrick took over as owner many years ago, we worried if it would be as good, but it continued to be the superb restaurant that we knew and loved. The food is always good, only once in all the time we have been coming here, we did not... More
