Come dine and enjoy but please lower your expectations. This family friendly Chinese restaurant has kept its decor, ambience and style of cooking unchanged since the 70s. This reasonably priced restaurant is a big hit with the non Orientals working crowd in Chinatown and the government offices in downtown LA. Occasionally you might be dining and rubbing shoulders with LAPD... More

This place was recommended to me by a Chinese friend for take-out and it is also a restaurant. We always buy lots of dim sum to take home, it's tasty and a good value. They have their own parking lot so it is convenient.

Old school since 1976. The first time I came here around midnight on a Saturday the place was so packed that I could not get a table for myself. I returned again but this was just to get some bakery goods to go, their sesame buns and other items are truly delicious. The place is a dive but it gets... More

The place is not fancy at all and kind of a zoo at night, lots of people standing in line for take out food.There is no restaurant seating system, you just chose your table and sit. The food was good, huge portions and not expensive.

This restaurant has been in business for years and is known for their cheaply priced Chinese food. However, I go here for their Baked BBQ Pork Buns, which are the best around town.

I am not really fond of this restaurant because I find it un-inviting but I go here to buy their sesame balls which are the same size as tennis balls. A dozen costs like $8.40 but it lasts us a week. We refrigerate them and warm it up for 30 sec in the microwave and it's still good. You can... More

Love everything there! But...better come among the week not on on weekend, not on fridays and other such time cause too many tourists and the portions somehow are smaller than usual, food isn't tasty and blah blah... Yes, the place doesn't look attractive and entourage in general is suspicious. Regular bill is around 20$, go with friends and share your... More

I only come here for their dim- sum. Their pork shiu mai is to die for. BBQ buns are awesome as well. They offer rice noodle only in the morning and yes they do sell out. Opens late but stops serving Dim-sum at 1 am. I could be wrong.

Good Chinese restaurants tend to fall into two categories; Great atmosphere, great food, and almost no atmosphere but great food. Won Kok Restaurant in Chinatown, Los Angeles, CA. fits the second description to a “T”. Selling a variety of Dim Sum at their in-store takeout, the Won Kok is virtually “Standing Room Only”. The eat-in restaurant component has excellent food,... More
