    Great food & telling it to you straight

    When you first walk in, you won't be impressed. The restaurant is in the underground level and the decor is non-existent. However, the food makes up for it...nothing fancy, but it's VERY GOOD! I recommend: cantonese crabs, beef chow fun, baby bok choi w/garlic, salt & pepper squid, pan-friend flounder w/oyster sauce, and chinese broccoli w/oyster sauce. I don't know what some of the previous reviews are talking about such as rude waitress, and a good place for dim sum. The reason I why I say this is because there are no rude waitresses due to the fact that there are not waitresses only waiters. And Hop Kee is not a good place for for dim sum because they don't serve dim sum at all. I've been going there for years. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed.

    Lychee Duck is Amazing

    I've had duck before and NOTHING compares to their lychee duck with pineapple. Its the sweetest, most tender duck I've ever had in my life. That one dish would keep me going back there over and over.

    Great food for great price.

    I've been coming here for years and the food has been the same ol yummie chinese food. I'm surprised the prices have remain pretty much the same. It's a great place for large party to avoid spending too much! You must try the crabs, fried flounder, snails & clams!

    Best place ever

    The food is to die for. Good portions, no waiting time to sit or get your food. Very, very, very tasty, just the right seasoning. Try the pan fried flounder or the crab cantonese, or the beef with scallions. Waiters are funny but rush you a little because that is the style...eat fast, get out and next. They get right to the point...your appetite. I highly reccomend this as your last meal before you die [however, for my last meal, it will be my dad's sinigang :)

    Not Recommended

    This place came Very highly recommended. I was even told specifically what dishes I had to order because they were supposed to be amazing. This was the most bland and tasteless meal that I have eaten since I moved to New York. Maybe this would be better if you were drunk at 4am, but don't go sober or with high expectations...or any expectations at all.

    Simply the best in Chinatown

    I have been going to this wonderful restaurant for twenty years and have never had a bad experience. Something so cliche as won ton soup is taken to new levels here. You have never had won ton dumplings so light and tasty!!! Salt and pepper shrimp are a delight, I dont even bother taking the shells off. Peking pork chops are a must have evey time I go. Clams Cantonese could not be fresher even at 1:00 in the morning! I could go on and on but I wont. To put it in the most basic terms, if its good enough for the local Chinese community to eat at after going to the funeral home around the corner, its good enough for me.

    One of my favorite places for dim sum

    Been going there since I was a teenager. Excellent dim sum for lunch which is what I usually go there for. For dinner, I usually have noodle or rice dishes which are good but it is the dim sum which rules. However, if you can't snatch one of the booths since this is a small place, you may have to share a table with other folks which Chinese don't mind but Americans don't like. I never have problems with the waitresses, they are attentive but then maybe it's because I'm Chinese :)
