I went to Fo Hop 2 weeks ago on the back of reading the good reviews here. I must admit I was very disappointed. The restaurant was pretty easy to find when wandering around China Town. Make sure you go down the stairs if you want to go into this restaurant as it is 'joined' with another. When we entered... More

Staying at the Seaport, called Wo Hop for delivery. Order came in 15 minutes and was complete as ordered. Dishes were hot except fried dumplings. Not impressed with taste or texture. Sadly disappointed being in NYC near Chinatown.

Downstairs - great food large selection. Reasonably priced for NYC. Upstairs is newer and appears more upscale. Love downstairs many memories.

But very good!! CASH ONLY but they do have a ATM outside the door. Hot & Sour Soup was slightly sweet but good. I also had the whole steamed Black Bass...not the best I've ever had. Service is adequate and they aren't a whole lot of fun.... Wouldn't go back for the food, but a unique space to take a... More

This is a great spot hidden within Chinatown. We ordered some fried rice, lo mein, and general tso chicken for the table and all of it was fantastic. Only downfall we didn't realize when we arrived was this was a cash only place so we had to send someone out to grab cash but not a big deal. Will be... More

Stopped in after walking Brooklyn bridge. Great food and neat atmosphere. It's small, old and authentic. Not fancy at all. Definitely recommend if you come through China Town.

In the heart of China town this little hidden gem serves King size portions complete with complimentary hot tea. We started with the 12 (yes 12) fried Wontons which we were expecting to be stuffed with cream cheese but were stuffed with small pieces of beef (only mentioning for those non meat eaters). They were served with a spicy mustard... More

Wo Hop on Mott Street is a fabulous place to eat in Chinatown, both for the food and for the experience. As we walked down Mott Street some other restaurants had staff outside, beckoning you in. There was nobody outside Wo Hop, but when we went down the stairs and through the door into a room with walls covered in... 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.
