Best Chinese restaurant in the Country.
Posted by Ed on 12/16/2005
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.

...then this place has it! It's not the prettiest little joint that people line up to get into. Why? Because the food is great and cheap! I've been eating here for decades. Sure, there are many restaurants that offer more authentic/more refined food, but for that authentic American-Chinese hybrid, this is the place. Total comfort food! Lastly, make sure you get something that includes noodles!

This is one of the long time Chinatown favorites, and it doesn't disappoint. The portions are very huge, easily better for sharing(it's hard to finish one when dining alone during a lunch hour). One of my faves is the Curry Noodles, an overflowing bowl with a choice of beef, chicken, pork, etc. in a nice broth. The Hot and Sour Soup is a little different than what you might expect(it's a little sweet), but this is OK. The service is not rude, but they can be fairly brusque at times.
