Wanfu Chinese Restaurant (Pompano Beach)

Posted on September 8th, 2014 · Chinese Pompano Beach

***** Wanfu Chinese Restaurant, 2301 West Sample Road, Pompano Beach, Florida 33073, (954) 975-8828.

This Chinese joint has been around since 1983. Jeff Eats knows for sure that I have eaten there 5 times- with the first time having been in 1993 and the last time being last night. Jeff Eats is still scratching his head as to why Wanfu wasn’t previously “reviewed” for you guys.


Ate there last night and Wanfu absolutely killed the Jeff Eats’ Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese Taste Test circa 1959. Ordered dishes included-bbq ribs, fried dumplings, egg rolls, wonton soup, roast pork fried rice, sweet & sour pork, pepper steak, shrimp with lobster sauce. No bs-ing here, last night if I had squinted (no pun or insult intended) my eyes while eating- I “could” have sworn that I was sitting in Joy Fung’s Chinese Restaurant on Avenue J and Coney Island Avenue in Brooklyn-1959.

Nothing fancy going on at Wanfu but,

If you are looking for good-solid Brooklyn Jewish Anerican Chinese Food circa 1959-with the appropriate-period decor- then you gotta eat at Wanfu Chinese Restaurant in Pompano Beach.

Before Jeff Eats wraps this up- it just seems to me, that almost every “mom & pop” Chinese joint that I have ever eaten in, is decorated like it was 1959 no matter when it opened. Are you guys on the same page or am I “seeing” something that isn’t there?

Wanfu Chinese Restaurant is open Sunday 4pm-9:30pm, Monday-Thursday 11:30-9:30pm, Friday 11:30pm-10:30pm, Saturday noon-10:30pm.

    JEFF –
    When we were growing up every Chinese restaurant was designed by the same company named Charles Chan & Company – The company had a ‘combination’ of address –
    #2 – #3 – #4 Egg Loll Street in Brooklyn –

    Try Crazy Wok in Ft. Lauderdale on Federal Hwy just south of 26th street in a shopping center on the east side of Us1. Very good food. Just like Brooklyn. You will really like it!

    My wife and I own several booths in the Festival.
    At least once a month for the past 10 years after we close on Sunday we eat dinner at Wanfu. The food is excellent.
    You are also right that every Chinese joint looks the same circa 1959.
