We stopped by on our way back from London - we had not booked. Shown straight to a table and served straight away. We ordered the Peking Set Meal which included Hot & Sour Soup, Aromatic Crispy Duck, Deep Fried Chilli Beef, Kung Po Spicy Hot Chicken, Stir Fried Mixed Veg and Egg Fried Rice; all arrived hot, freshly cooked and delicious. Service was friendly, efficient and swift.

Crab claws were my favourite dish. Lots of parking facilities. All the food we ordered were good and tasty. Reasonable prices. Will go again when in Croydon.

I visited Wing Yip with my family on a busy Saturday and thought this would be a great evening for food and amusement.

However we were very disappointed in the service, food and atmosphere.
I have previously been to this restaurant had ordered eel on a number of occasions and usually it's unbelievable tasty.
But this time when I mentioned that the meat was raw and chewy, the waitress was rude and abusive to me.
I told her that was no way to talk to a customer, but she did not back down and shouted louder at my family, in front of a bunch of customer.
This is the first time in my life when I made a constructive comment have I been treated so rudely.

Definitely will not be going back there, until it's had a management change. Also I'm not recommending this place for the immediate future.

A good local Chinese restaurant next to the supermarket. We shared fairly standard dishes - mixed starters of prawn toast, spring rolls, spare ribs and seaweed. we then had good sweet and sour pork and crispy beef accompanied by rice and crispy noodles. Everything was fine apart from the noodles which looked like and had the texture of straw.
Service is fast and efficient rather than friendly and prices are quite high for an "average" Chinese meal.

Best food ever... Good selection and large portions.. Always busy... Friendly staff.... Very very good... Plus you have the supermarket and cafe which sells the most fantastic selection of sweet and savory.... Wish there were more around thecountry
