Square Meal Review of Loong Kee ?

There’s plenty of temptation lining Kingsland Road as you walk northwards past the Vietnamese restaurants, but keep your eyes on the prize at the very end of this ragtag stretch and you’ll be rewarded. Loong Kee is a no-frills venue that’s usually packed to the rafters with Hoxton hipsters and groups of Vietnamese, served by hard-pressed yet friendly staff. Food prices may have gone up since the glory days of five years back, but are still reasonable, with mains floating around the £6-7 mark. Star turns include the crispy sea bass in ginger and onions (a whole filleted fish that has been deep fried), the hot and sour soup and the roasted quail. Larger groups can be catered for – often in the slightly down-at-heel basement – and the BYOB policy will certainly help to get the party started.

The restaurant itself is pretty basic in terms of furnishings, but was almost half full when we arrived, so obviously this doesn’t deter anyone. If anything, you know it’s not going to cost you an arm and leg! They also allow BYO, so come prepared. We didn’t bother and instead stuck to their Vietnamese beer, which was itself a bargain at just £2.80 per bottle...
