If you love Chinese food this is the place to go. Having tried many other venues, we keep going back to the above as it's really good food. Never had anything to complain about which is normally the case with other venues.

If you enjoy Chinese, Tong Lok is the best. Lovely intimate restaurant, excellent service. Chow mein is divine! Flavours are excellent. Felt good about paying for good food.

I make a point of visiting Tong Lok whenever im in Durban They make the best hot and sour soup on the planet and i had the entire bowl on my own. I also enjoyed their rainbow rolls and salmon roses. Nothing fancy about the place just great food at a great price!

Not a great place as restaurants go and it will not be my first choice for Chinese food. I have also had the takeaways previously and it was also average matched by average service as well. The ladies room is dingy and awful.

Restaurant is modestly but tastefully decorated. It has a real oriental charm, with authentic etched windows. Tables are well spaced. Food is of high standard, albeit portion sizes are limited. Take-away portion sizes are generous however, but the prices are slightly on the high side. Yet this must be one of the finest chinese restaurant around.

Pathetic service, order mixed up and we were forced to take the mix up as take away. Quality of food is terrible, broke out in allergy. I would recommend some other Chinese restaurant over this one. Absolutely disgusted with everything. I have not had such an experience before. I walked out the restaurant today, now I see why it was... More

Picked up a takeaway meal from this place. Food quality is average. Service was quick but the place didn't appeal me in cleanliness.
