Mr Kong

21 Lisle Street, London, London, WC2H 7BA
Although tables are fairly cramped, this is one of the best of the 80 or so Chinese restaurants crammed into this area, and also very reasonably priced.

The extensive à la carte menu, specialising in Cantonese dishes from the East River, includes all the traditional favourites, and other delicious temptations, such as Satay Eel, Spicy Salted Squid or Paper-wrapped Chili Spare Ribs; plus parts of the body not suitable for the squeamish (perhaps, deep-fried stuffed pig's intestine), all at very reasonable prices. The list of these specials might not automatically produced (so ask) - it's really designed for the Chinese themselves (so all the better for that).

A selection of braised 'pot dishes' is particularly mouth-watering. Good vegetarian options. Food arrives with remarkable speed, but there's no pressure to leave, even if queues stretch down the road.

There are no desserts.

The restaurant is on three floors, but choose a table on the ground floor if possible.
