Sadly the standard has slipped. Saying that, it is good Chinese, just not as good as it used to be. The staff seem disinterested and the food is rushed out, as though they want you out quicker than you came in.

We lived in Loughton for many years and used the wo fat on a few occasions. Looking for a good Chinese restaurant I suggested this one again, on memory. Basically it hasn't changed in many years, probably since I first went there. The decor is so tired, it was snoring. The service was pleasant enough, but everyone was continuously busying... More

Lovely food, quick service and the food isn't greasy like with alot of takeaways I've had. This was perfect and the duck and sauce was perfect. Staff are always friendly and food comes hot and fresh and doesn't take long to come at all.

WoFat is an excellent Chinese restaurant. Food is good and staff are very helpful. Could do with a bit of a makeover as decor and carpets are looking a bit tired

My family and a couple of our friends went to Wo Fat for New Years. The service on the evening and the food were absolutely spectacular. The vegetarian options I had were out of this world, and I was extremely impressed. My family and friends are meat eaters and they also praised the food and the ambiance. Some reviews say... More

Having chosen this restaurant based on the great reviews on Tripadvisor, we were very dissapointed with our visit. The restaurant was very tired looking inside, as noted in previous reviews. The staff were very attentive & the service was quick. We did ask for guidance on the menu as one of our party reacts badly to MSG, having already checked... More

This place is always packed so we decided to see what the fuss is about. My hubby ordered duck to start and I ordered chilli mushroom, plus we ordered veggie pancake rolls to share. The duck arrived within minutes but nothing else arrived. They started setting up for the main meals yet my starter still had not arrived. My starter... More
