I have had a lot of Chinese food in my life and this was not among it! I don't know why it got such good reviews when everything I got was more than questionable and completely lackluster. We got beef & broccoli, veggie lo mein, hot and sour soup and dumplings and there was not one thing that I liked. For China Town's Best, I am incredibly disappointed.

fabulous place to eat!! cheap and delicious. this is what i call authentic chinese food. just be careful with wht time you go. during dinner and lunch times, it gets extremely hectic in there. but if you visit chinatown, you must eat here!

If you're even the vicinity of C-town, you must take this TO GO (my mom does for her catered mah-jong parties)--the BBQ Pork & other faves, Duck & Soy sauce chicken, or a combo of the 3 on rice! Like most typical & authentic H.K. fastfood cafeterias, the service as well as the surroundings are just as rude. I give 5 STARS alone for the best BBQ Pork in C-town.

It serves the best wonton noodle soup in Manhattan and the rest of NYC. Other dishes to try include roast pork and chicken (any type) rice platter. It's fast, cheap, great food. The service is ok. Do not come here looking for fancy settings. It's more of an eat and go atmosphere. I go there all the time and have not gotten tired of it.

duck congee was delicious. had decent amount of duck meat. noodle dish with pickled cabbage was real good too. recommend.

Big Wong was one of the early soup/congee parlors that still maintains quality. The prices are terrific, quantities huge and taste excellent. Standards such as beef chow fun or Singapore rice noodle are done here as well as anywhere. If you're squeamish about cleanliness or sharing tables, then avoid Chinatown. Takeouts were quick too. Yes, their roast pork is superb.

This is basically among the last places in chinatown that serve authentic food. You see too many people here on MenuPages raving about places serving authentic food when they don't but trust me when i say this is as authentic as you'll get. A large majority of these dishes, you wont find in most restaurants because they cater more to the tourists and caucasian people while big wong caters more to the asian community - you wont find any of your normal take out dishes here! The portions are big, the prices are as low as you'll get, the good is great, and the service is fast. The only down side is that it's set up very close so you're always sitting next to strangers.
