Although this place has been around forever, the food is predictable and boring. There are so many other wonderful Chinese restaurants in New York.

Cons: Boring food, Many other places, Crowded

I actually crave it when I am out of town! This is the place to eat --the won ton soup is out of this world. Sometimes there is a wait, but it is always worth it. The service is wonderful and always comes with compliments (the call me the next miss america!) If you're ever in the city, make sure you stop in.

This is without a doubt the BEST Chinese food for the money. The food is very affordable and the service is quick. Expect to wait on the weekends out in the street (or on the stairs). As long as you are not spooked by cramped seating areas you'll love this place.

24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Wo Hop serves up some of the tastiest Chinese food around. The restaurant has two parts: upstairs is a typical Chinatown restaurant, while downstairs is a cafeteria style: Fun, noisy and cramped. The portions are genorous and the prices low (and T-Shirts are only $5)! You have heard about it on TV, now experience it in person (NY police shows reference it all the time).

Don't be fooled by the fact that you have to go downstairs into a basement to eat. Don't be fooled by the cramped conditions. Don't be fooled by the hurried, impatient waiters. This is the only place in Chinatown to eat. The other places may have more space, better lighting, and nicer staff, but Wo Hop's has the best food. And if incredible food at cut rate prices is what you want, get in line and enjoy the best Chinatown has to offer.

Oh man what could I say about Wo Hop, I've been going there since I was a young lad. I wanted my Bar Mitzvah there but the Rabbi wouldn't pray over the Pork Lo Mein. I wanted to have my wedding there but, 150 year old granny couldn't make it down the stairs. What could I say the food is great, even though the sign in the Mens Room says "Employee's Must Wash @$$".....One thing is for sure when you Down at Wo's you won't come back up, and your wallet won't lose any weight either...oh and by the way, cash only, the downside, no frequent flyer points earned by eating at Wo's.

I have many times at Wo Hop since 1961. I have seen the place go from no english menus through 3 redecorations. Some of the wait staff were teenagers like myself when I first started eating there while in high school. Now they are "elders" like me.
Best won ton soup in the world! I have travelled extensively and can make this statement truthfully. Better won ton than China towns in SanFancisco or L.A. ...Enjoy! Great ribs and chow fun too.

I love this place. The waiterd are a little stuffy but they always take time for my 5 yo son and talk to him. The food is prepared as specially ordered.

Excellent food. Fantastic prices. Service comes above and beyond the call of duty. Love the pictures, they really add a great atmosphere. There is no better chinese dining in New York.

one of the better chinese in the city. If you are into ambiance go across the street and pay twice as much. House special Lo Mein is a favorite

Love Wo Hop! Downstairs is the place to be. Where else can you order your takeout and be served a Tsing Tao beer on the house while you wait? And if you go in the wee hours, you can watch everyone making dumplings from scratch! GREAT FUN!

Wo! was it cheap. Dinner for 8 of us was around $95 dollars and we ordered 7 appetizers, soup and 5 entrees including one lobster dish. Sesame noodles were very good and different, not the thick peanuty sauce I am used to. The dumplings and ribs were devoured and the string beans in garlic sauce were fresh and spicy. Not a lot of choices for vegetarians but what I ate was yummy. I would also say that this isnt the best place to go with more than 4 people and certainly not if you are looking for any ambiance.

My family has enjoyed eating at Wo Hop for over 20 years. This is not haute cuisine, but the food is tasty and cheap. Chinese "Soul Food". Nothing has changed there for as long as I can remember (e.g.- menu, prices, decor, waitstaff...). It's just a fun place for cheap, no frills eating.

Wo Hops (Make sure you go to the one in the basement, not the one upstairs. Theres a huge difference) is one of the best noodle places in the city and offers some great NYC Chinatown Chinese food. This is not tradional chinese fare. Trust me, after annual trips to Hong Kong, there is a huge difference in taste between legit chinese food and the stuff we eat here. Wo Hops is packed every hour of the day. Usual clientelle are cops, EMT's, city workers, regulars, and kids looking for late night eats after a night of partying. That said, sit down, ask for the chop sticks, and order some Chow Fun and enjoy. Its not a pretty place, but is consistently on everyone top 10 list for a reason; the food.

after reading great reviews for wo hop, i decided to give it a try. but when you enter this dingy hole-in-the wall, you will not find a trace of chopsticks on the tables, nor a chinese character on the menu. the closest thing they've got to that are the souvenir t-shirts on sale by the register. sorry guys, but every single person you will find in this resteraunt besides the staff is anything but asian. not so reassuring... the food is greasy and mediocre. take it from a cantonese girl who was bred on the best of chinese cuisine... its just not worth it. not even close. well, at least you get your moneys worth?

The last of the old time Cantonese Cuisines. I used to love to frequent a place called Lin's Garden on Bayard Street. It closed it's doors in 1990. This is about as close as you get to that feeling you got back in the 60's when after getting the munchies, was the kind of place you wanted to find at 3AM in the morning. Now 30 + years later, though the munchies are long forgotten and those 3AM Chinatown runs are too, it's fun to take that trip and relive it, even though it's now in a Minivan on a Sunday at 3 PM.

Cons: Parking

You don't come here for decor, you come here for the food, which is exceptional. The prices are so low it's practically a crime, and it's unfortunately always crowded, but worth the wait.

Note: If you're a tourist, have a stroller or a group larger than 4, do EVERYONE a favor and eat upstairs!

Even though it may be tiny, 17 Wo Hop (downstairs), is by far the best Chinese Food!! So many favorites... but Cantonese Chicken Chow Mein is amazing!!!

I went there after reading rave reviews from other people on citysearch and wasn't disappointed. Definitely the best Chinese place I've found in the city so far. The wonton soup was excellent and so was the chicken and brocolli. I suggest going with a big group cause the portions are huge and there's enough to go around to everyone with plenty to spare. Serving the tea in a glass is a little odd but that's about it.

I still dream about the food at Wo's. I moved to the mid-west six years ago and miss the great food they have. Nothing nor no place can duplicate their Hot & Sour soup, the Peking pork and a item not on the american menu called..Sizzling steak(chunks of tender steak with scallions and mushrooms with a brown sauce served in a hot pot..You have to ask for it, then explain it to the waiter who will give you a weird look but then write it down)
If anyone from Wo - Hops is reading this, PLEASE, PLEASE, open a Wo's in Sioux Falls, South Dakota...I'm starving....GM
