I've been a regular at this place for over 20 years. Lately, it has also become a favorite spot of my wife, kids and others that are close to us. I no longer live in Manhattan. But, we've dined at Wo Hop at least 6 times since Christmas. As a matter of fact, my family [and whoever else wants to tag along: aunts, uncles, friends...] make the trip in every Christmas Eve to eat. Everyone looks forward to it. The food is excellent, so is the service, the Tsing Taos are always ice cold, the portions are huge and the prices are low. Try the roast duck, and/ or the 4D chow fun. The waitersare very friendly and they always try to be accomodating. Yes the place is small & loud. Yes patrons and waiters will likely be brushing by you while you eat. Yes you will almost definitely wait on line for 15-45 minutes between lunch time and 2:00 am. Yes! It's worth it. It's all part of the Wo Hop experience.

Best Chinese restaurant in the Country.

I started going here as an impoverished graduate student in 1968 when dinner could be had for about $1.95 (wonton soup, lo mein & tea). Inflation has struck but it's still the best bargain in this part of the universe. My (now 24 year old) daughter's first non breast-milk non formula meal was wonton broth in a bottle. I refer to it as a noodle palace - if Peking Duck is your thing, go elsewhere.

In the late 70's I ate here 2-3 times a month before moving away from Manhattan. My 22 year old son moved to Manhattan and it was my pleasure to bring a third generation family member to the best Chinese restaurant in North America. I live in Vancouver and frequent San Fransisco but Wo Hop is still the best. It may look like a 'hole in the wall" but the food will never disappoint. The Chow Fon is fantastic and the value is beyond compare. Worth every minute of the wait and truly a highlight of my trip back to NYC.

Living in new york I have eaten my fair share of Chinese food but in the end I always end up going to Wo Hop. My parents got me hooked when I was three and since then I have lived happily ever after. There food is great and I tell everyone who comes to visit that this is the place to go.

I stopped here with my son on a recent trip to NYC. I was told to eat here by New Yorkers I knew on-line. The place isn't much to look at, but the food is outstanding (the hot and sour soup is the best I have ever had), and isn't overly expensive, as things tend to be in a big city. Absolutely worth checking out when in Chinatown.
