You pay for everything you order...yes...even the rice! Waiters are usually grumpy.....don't judge the place by its look or the bathroom...otherwise you would not go and stay and eat...but...it became our landmark and every time we come to China Town we go there (all the way at the end of Mott Street) down the stairs to get a table at...

While the food was good, I can't say its the best Chinese food I'd ever had. The place is a dump and the wait on a Sunday night at 4:30 p.m. was about an hour. Everything you buy is separate so if you want white rice, you have to ask for that.

This isn't your typically over decorated Chinese food restaurant in NYC. It is downstairs (beneath sidewalk level) in an otherwise shady part of Chinatown. But the food is authentic and delicious. And their prices are beyond reasonable. One thing to note: they don't accept plastic payment of any kind...it's all cash. Not expensive, but extremely well prepared. This is where... More

This is a must if you are in NYC. Pretty sure the place has been open for almost 100 years. The waiters wear the old school waiter outfits you would see in China. The portions are huge. Get ready for a lot of Tasty Food. I will be coming back here again soon.

A hidden gem in Chinatown is what this downstairs, small, and I mean small Chinese restaurant is. We always go to WoHop 17whenever we visit NYC. Don't get the restaruant confused by another WoHop of the same name just a few doors down,the ground level one. No matter what you order, the food is always fresh and hot. We have... More

We came here with local friends, and this is a place I could recommend easily. It's not fancy,but its open late and its some of the best Chinese food I've had.

We went on a Monday night in January and encountered their very famous long line. We waited on Mott Street for 20 minutes and heard high praise from the other people waiting. The food was plentiful, I grant you that. The quality was not as high unfortunately. I will return for another try but with muted expectations. Bring cask as... More

There are frequently lines out the door, but waits aren't too bad. The staff is very friendly and a joy to be around. It is decorated very interestingly, but don't let its looks or the fact it is down in what would be considered basement space, deter you. The food is amazing! I have been here multiple times and love... More

We wanted to have a great experience in Chinatown and some NY locals recommended Wo Hop. It was downstairs off the street and a bit of a dive, but charming. The staff was very attentive and the eggrolls were huge! The food was typical Chinese, but the wonton soup was excellent!

Thank Jmshupe

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.
