You love Chinese food? Well, then you definitely want to know where the best Chinese restaurants in Walthamstow are located, right? This is why we have gathered all of our favourite places and have featured them on this list!

One of these restaurants is a takeout place and it doesn’t have a dine-in area, however, this shouldn’t stop you from ordering and enjoying the delicious food at home!

Our esteemed team hath sought and discovered four of the finest purveyors of Chinese cuisine in the quaint locale of Walthamstow.


Peking Chef

First on our list is Peking Chef – one of our favourite Chinese restaurants in Walthamstow that we visit quite often. They prepare some of the most delicious traditional Chinese food in the area plus the staff is always super friendly and the owners are very welcoming.

Their starters include delicious Spring Rolls, Satay Chicken on Skewers, and Grilled dumplings. They have a Crab Meat and Sweetcorn Soup, Chicken and Noodle Soup, and our favourite – a Hot and Sour Soup!

When it comes to their main dishes, they have all sorts of traditional duck, chicken, beef, lamb dishes as well as noodles, rice, and even vegetable dishes for those that don’t eat meat.

We highly recommend the Beef With Ginger and Spring Onions, Broccoli and Mushroom in Oyster Sauce, the Bean Sprout Chow Mein, Chicken in Black Bean Sauce, and the King Prawn in Black Bean Sauce!

Address: 178 Hoe St, London E17 4QH


Thainese Restaurant

Thainese is a restaurant that offers Thai and Chinese dishes. Of course, we will focus on their Chinese options, however, their Thai dishes are also extremely tasty and we recommend you give them a try!

First on their menu are all of the traditional Chinese starters – from Spring Rolls to Dumplings. Then they have incredible soups – our favourites are the Chicken and Sweet Corn soup.

Their main dishes include a lot of duck dishes, noodles, rice, chicken, beef, lamb, fish, and seafood. We highly recommend the Crispy Duck, the Fried Vermicelli Rice Noodles (served with either prawns, squid, mussels, chicken, beef or vegetables), the Kung Pao Chicken and Chicken and Black Bean Sauce!

They also have incredible desserts – our favourite is the Mango Sticky Coconut Rice which is a Thai dessert!

Address: 313A Hoe St, London E17 9BG



Next on our list is Wong’s – an incredible takeout Chinese restaurant that unfortunately doesn’t have a dine-in area. But since we order from them quite often we had to feature them in our list because their food is fantastic! You have probably never heard of this place – for some reason, it’s not that popular which is why we think it’s a hidden gem, and we want you to know about it!

They have everything you can want on their menu – traditional starters, soups, chow mein, rice dishes, duck, pork, chicken, beef, tofu dishes, and much more!

Oodles Walthamstow

The last Chinese place on our list is another takeout restaurant without a dine-in area – but don’t let this stop you from ordering because their food is fantastic! Of course, they also have home deliveries if you don’t feel like going to Oodles and picking up your order yourself. We are certain you are going to love everything on the menu.

Now, they aren’t a typical Chinese restaurant because they have “boxes” with noodles or rice. You can create your own or choose from the ones they have on the menu. We love the Hot Chilli Mix Box 2 – Egg fried rice, vegetable noodles, Malaysian chicken, salt and pepper chicken and the Beef Stir Fry Mix Box 6 – Veg noodles, Malaysian sauce and beef stir fry.

They also have a Mochi box with 3 pieces of mochi in there – and they are delicious!
