Lai Chi Kok Station is a rapid transit station on the Tsuen Wan Line of the Hong Kong MTR system, between Cheung Sha Wan and Mei Foo. It was opened in 1982.

The station is in an orange-red livery, and is a simple through station with an island platform. Platform screen doors have been retrofitted along both platforms in this station.[when?]

Although the station is called Lai Chi Kok, it is located in Cheung Sha Wan. Passengers can use this station to access the southern part of Cheung Sha Wan. Cheung Sha Wan used to be an industrialized area, but in recent years, four high quality residential developments have been built on the reclaimed land, namely Banyan Gardens, liberté, The Pacifica and Aqua Marine. There is a pedestrian tunnel to connect these developments.

In addition, industrial buildings are being demolished and being rebuilt into brand new commercial buildings. The re-purposing of industrial units into office and retail units has led to the station having a high stream of passengers during peak hours.
