Today, our team is going to tell you all about their favourite Chinese restaurants in Watford that offer the delicious traditional food you are craving!

Keep in mind that some of these places are takeaway restaurants that do not have a dine-in area, however, their food is so good that you definitely shouldn’t skip ordering from them!

Top 4 Chinese Restaurants In Watford According To Our Team


Oodles Watford

First on our list is Oodles – a noodle family-run casual restaurant that first opened in 2010 and has been a favourite place of many for over a decade.

What we love most about Oodles is their menu and the fact that you get to create your own noodle box by choosing the base, sauce, and protein.

Choose between a small, medium, or large box. When it comes to the base, they have vegetable noodles, udon noodles and a lot of rice options such as egg-fried, Singapore, and vegetable rice.

Protein options include chilli chicken, chicken in black bean sauce, sweet & sour chicken, Chinese lamb curry, etc.

Lemon Grass

Another casual Chinese restaurant in Watford you are going to love is Lemon Grass – a place we recently discovered that we highly recommend to all of our friends.

From delicious starters and soup to impressive main dishes, we are certain you will find your favourite Chinese dish on their menu.

We usually get the Chicken with black bean sauce, the Sweet and Sour King Prawns, the Beef golden Sand (with peanut satay sauce, onions, leeks, carrots, coconut milk), or the Aromatic crispy duck with pancakes, spring onions, and cucumbers.

Their noodles are also very good – especially the Singapore Fried Rice Vermicelli Noodles with shrimp!

Rice Bowl

Next on our list is Rice Bowl which is a takeaway Chinese restaurant.

We usually start off with a Sesame Prawn on Toast, the Spare Ribs in Salt and Chilli, or their lovely Spring Rolls. Their Hot and Sour Soup and Crabmeat and Sweet Corn Soup are also incredible and worth trying!

When it comes to main dishes, they have it all – from Kung Po Chicken, Chicken in Oyster Sauce, Satay Beef, Sweet and Sour Beef with Mushrooms to Prawns with Chili and Black Bean Sauce and Prawns with Pineapple!

Of course, they also offer a variety of rice dishes, noodles, and even Chinese curry dishes you are going to love!

Wok Express

And last on our list is yet another takeaway restaurant that we discovered a few months ago – Wok Express. We decided to feature them on our list because we order from them quite often and we are in love with their food!

Starters include Spare Ribs in BBQ Sauce, Satay Chicken on Skewers, Salt & Pepper Prawns, Spring Rolls, and our favourite – Honey Spare Ribs. If you like soups then also order their Crab Meat & Sweetcorn Soup or the Won Ton Soup (with minced pork and prawn dumplings).

When it comes to their main dishes, you can never go wrong no matter what you choose. We love the Roast Duck with Mushrooms, their mouthwatering Beef in Oyster Sauce, Crispy Chilli Beef, Szechuan Chicken, Chicken in Plum Sauce, Honey Prawns, and the Sweet & Sour King Prawn Balls.

As you can see, we have tried a lot of things off of the menu for a very short period of time – and this shows how obsessed with Wok Express we really are!
