You get a lot of everything you order but i was shocked the way they treat you when you pay. When we payed they wanted more tip and even shout after us when we left.

Having eaten at Wo Hop before, we were looking forward to a delicious lunch. We started with a small soup each, which was good. We also ordered Chicken with Curry and Shrimp Ding with Cashews. Both dishes were disappointing. Curry dishes are usually flavorful, but this dish was not. The noodles were also mushy. Both dishes were bland. The other... More

This place was recommended by a native New Yorker co-worker who frequented this place after a night of barhopping in his younger days. We visited after a day of Chinatown site seeing. You take the stairs from the street front down into the small dining area. The food was outstanding and inexpensive - cash only and was fairly packed for... More

Fried crab was good, noodles just average. You get free tea and water with your meals. Was hoping for better quality, portions are big.

Arrived on 27th Decembe at about 4.40pm, I thought by getting there early there would be no queue,but I was wrong, the line went up the stairs, it was about 30 mins wait. It is down in the basement. When you get inside you can see why, not just because the place is popular, but it's so small, probably about... More

Take out order on 12/31/16 proved to be disappointing. Ordered a wonton eggdrop soup. The wonton's were doughy. The lobster orders were overcooked. Not filled with enough lobster pieces. The spicy shrimps were overcooked. Ate one shrimp and had an allergic reaction. The roast pork with mixed vegetables was good. Not enough roast pork.

There was quite a bit of a wait: indicative of the quality for sure. Food was on point. The place is in this little basement of a restaurant in China Town. I would definitely go back.

Down in a dungeon at midnight the very best and fastest $7.50 chow mein you could wish for, not to mention a $26.50 bottle of decent Cabernet Sauvignon. Were the rest of NY this value conscious!

There was lots of hype surrounding this place so we gave it a shot. We stood in line for about 45 minutes and would totally do it again. Once we were seated, they brought both black tea and water to the table. (Other drinks are do not include refills.) The food is fabulous and authentic. Very very small dining area... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
