Wong Kei

That poncy new yorker hit it right in the bulls-eye, by wearing the target on his own chest. Gets better if you imagine him whining in a really annoying Yank accent. For God's sake Wong Kei has a reputation to keep; were they not abusive, all the masochists who frequent will be crying for a refund. This is possibly the best value for food in London; Wonton definitely not the best, but try western style beef on rice. That's HK food for you. On my first visit with a friend, the waiter snatched the menu (after I had ordered 5 items) from my hands shouting, "Enough! That's too much." Evidently a rather experienced one, for he was right. Second time found me a little more prepared. Can get interesting if you dare; they will rise to any shouting match you challenge them with. Much fun watching unsuspecting customers getting verbally abused. The whole thing is an act for tourist attraction. In a way, that NYer is right, you'd never get this sort of service anywhere else.
