Don't be looking for any tablecloths, fancy dining areas, etc Nope. Just get ready for some terrific Chinese food! Order one of their soups with noodles and meat or a meat over rice dish, if you want to blend in with the natives. Or, don't worry and order anything else you are familiar with. It's all good. Do not miss their BBQ pork!

I used this site to pick this restaurant, going for the combination of low price and high ratings. We weren't disappointed. The fried rice with roast pork was the best fried rice dish I've ever had. The chicken and vegetables over rice was fabulous. The chicken was tender yet flavorful. The vegetables were the stalk of some kind of greens (mustard? collard?). Again, very flavorful. We also had the spare ribs and vegetables dish. This was a little less satisfying, perhaps because the chopped up ribs were a bit hard to eat (peeling the small amount of meat of the cross-sectioned bones. As others have said the value was terrific, the service very friendly. To top it off we went around the corner to Little Italy for a tasty dessert of tiramisu, gelato, and espresso.

A few days ago I ate at the Big Wing Wong. Pork fried rice, sweet and sour shrimp, duck with noodles, lo mein with ginger and scallion. It was worth TWICE the price I paid. Nice service, very reasonable, good food.

I went to Big Wing Wong the other day after doing a little research on the best roast pork (char siu) in the city. The verdict? It was just ok. I ordered roast pork over rice dish, which didn't come with any frills such as veggies, as some places do. That wasn't a big deal though, since it was only $3.50! The quality of the meat wasn't bad, but it was a little fattier than I prefer and each of the pieces were long and skinny like a cheetoh rather than wider like a bandaid. (I know, probably not the imagery you're looking for but I couldn't think of anything else with the right dimensions.) It was more like the thickness of the roast pork you might find in fried rice. Also, the meat quantity left a little to be desired, but I can't really complain about that given the price. I do think they could do better by charging $4.50 for the meal and giving you more meat--it wasn't terribly filling and I had to grab a safety slice once I had finished. Maybe it was just a bad day at Big Wing Wong, but I definitely won't be hurrying back anytime soon. I guess I'll have to keep searching for the best roast pork in the city...

We found Big Wing Wong on this site and were not disappointed when we went in person. Really cheap, even by non-New York standards. We paid more for dessert in Midtown than for dinner for three at BWW. The General Tso's Chicken is fried and comes in a sweat and sour type sauce. Different but highly recommended. One caveat: it's cash only so be prepared.

Just came back from having dinner at this very crowded chinatown restaurant. The service was great everybody very happy on the eve of the New Year. Food was awsome, best shrimp & pork soup dumplings I've ever had. General Tso chicken was great made completely different then I've ever had. The best was the roast pork with egg combo over rice. Included 2 beers with that and the price couldn't be beat. So many things I want to try I'll be returning very soon.
