A friend recommended this place to check out and he will no longer be allowed to recommend anything any longer because this place is a disaster. I felt I was transported to the 70s and not in a good way. The whole place looked dingy and

The decor hasn't changed, and neither has how good the food is! The place is opened until about 3am and reopens at 6am so if you need some good late night chinese food, this is the place to be. Prices are cheap and the portions are massive.

On recommendation of Dwayne Thorin at The Coffee Gallery in Altadena, we tried it. We'll be back well before next Christmas!
A short block-and-a-half waddle from the Chinatown Gold Line station South on Spring to Alpine and across. Even easy returning, via the elevator, with some bao-to-go for the sick one at home.
Honey Walnut Shrimp (didn't find it on the huge menu) to die for, fairly ordinary pork chow mein with fine noodles, and the yummy duck congee, a pot of good oolong tea; $25 for 3; that's hard to beat.
Yes, it's a funky joint, but we didn't come for fancy decor. Pretty outsides bring tourists; a great kitchen brings back the locals as regulars.

Pros: Duck, Serious Inexpensive Baos

Cons: Tiny Restroom, funky hole-in-the-wall joint

I actually signed up to CitySearch just to leave a review of this place. Due to a series of unfortunate events, I ended up eating here at Christmas (don't ask) and I still feel sick just remembering the experience. The place was bumping, but we really wanted to eat Chinese food and someone (a pox on her and her entire family!) had once recommended this place. We had no problem with the wait, as it's usually a good sign, and we were eventually seated in the main room, which was filled to capacity. When our food arrived, we were ravenous and dug in straight away. Unfortunately, my wife and I were unable to finish any of the dishes we ordered (and we ordered a lot because we were hungry), as the food was just...horrible. I literally felt sick to my stomach and had to order some beer to get rid of the taste. We left most of the food on the table and I haven't been back to Chinatown since, even though I live just down the road. I'm so disappointed with C-town. The only decent place is Yang Chow, but it's too busy most of the time. The Plum Tree Inn is a poor second. But, Won Kok truly deserves its name. I still gag when I drive past it and will probably remember it when I'm old and senile.

Cons: Food that wants to get up and walk out

Okay, so this won't be my top pick for late night Chinese craving in Chinatown, but its been here so long that you come back to it because of the servers. The food is so greasy, but for some reason you still enjoy it. MJ always serves us. He's funny and he knows you if you're a regular. Maybe that's why we go there a lot. It's open late, so there's a rush after 2 am for those just coming out of the clubs.

Talk about a hole in the wall! I had my doubts and was very worried the first time I went. Since then we have been going at least once a week. I introduced a friend and I kid you not, he went days in a row the next few weeks. You can eat like a king for what seems like pennies. Plus, they serve some dim sum items all day, unlike other places. It's like Yang Chow but at Won Kok the portions are twice as big, the wait is half as long and you want more when you are done. You see everything from Detectives, Traffic Control, Police Officers, Nurses, and even Mariachi come each here. It's the best! And it's open until 3 a.m.!

Chinese Food done old school. Won Kok is one of those restaurants that brings you back in time. The dragons spiraling over post and the red coat wait staff bring me back to the China town of my youth. But not only is the decor old school so is the food. From greasy pan fried noodles that slide down your throat with the greatest of ease to the pork chop with special xoxo sauce that brings you to your knees. Yup I'm a fan and I'm so happy places like this still exist in LA.

I was introduced to Won Kok by my girlfried last year. Because of the dim atmosphere and location of the restaurant, I was a bit reluctant to go. I am definitely glad I went. Since my visit I have made this my prime chinese eatery when Im in the downtown area. The food here is excellent. They have a wide variety of dishes. The prices are incredible cheap and the service is fantastic. If you are not comfortable eating in, get take out. You could order about five different entrees (including shrimp) for roughly $45.

It's one of my fave chinese restaurant in chinatown. Me, my family & friends love to dine in here. Most of the food in the menus are really great including their dumplings, siomai & baked goods>>>SIOPAO etc.

Friendly staff, affordable food. It's really worth dining in WON KOK.

DO NOT let the looks and atmosphere of this place fool you. Won Kok serves some mean Chinese food, at prices you didn't think existed in LA! You can feed four hungry vultures for under $30, including quality seafood dishes. I had my doubts the first time a friend brought me here........as did the many others I've introduced this place to. I've yet to have a bad dish at this place for the numerous times I had visited over the years. One thing I'd that's a must is the ma po tofu...........fresh tofu w/ ground pork, carrots and peas in a spicy sauce! I'd also suggest one of noodle or a mixed seafood dish. Service is usually good, besides the times the dining room's mobbed. All the servers are characters as well! One huge plus........open til 3:30am. Great place to hit after a night at the Standard!
