I've lived in NYC for 10 years and eaten my share of bad Chinese food. This is by far one of my favorite places in town. And what is he talking about with the overpriced comment? The best moo shoo chicken you've ever eaten is only $7.40. And they make their own fresh mustard that will burn the hairs off your tongue. The service is great - I don't think you can really call it service, I'd call it entertainment. Listen to anonymous and miss out on a truly original NYC experience (with yummy ribs to boot).

I was disappointed with Wo Hop. I thought it'd be great chinese because it's in Chinatown and heard about it on PBS. Unfortunately, the food did not taste good, and was overpriced for what it was. It was more greasy than other restaurants' food, and the environment seems dingy.

As a working musician in the early 80's there was no better place to get the best traditional Chinese food in the city. 24 hours a day! When did they clean the place!?! Wo Hop... I love you!

Ever since I was a little girl, my father and uncles have been taking me to Wo Hop. They have been going since they were kids, so I guess the tradition has been passed along to me. Wo Hop has the best americanized chinese food on the planet, at ridiculously low prices. Stop in any time- day or night. I now live in the village and every time I feel the need for a fabulous bowl of soup or great noodles, I head on down to 17 Mott. There is nothing quite like chinese comfort food during all-nighter cram sessions before tests. I don't care what other people say- Wo Hop is simply the best!

I been a cop over 20yrs and use to live in Chinatown, there's nothing better that captures the true favor of old Chinatown cooking. There is nothing fancy about the place, but it all come down to what you eat and how you love it.

At first you think, "why am I going down into a cellar to eat?", but as you enter the well worn dinning area, the first thing you notice is the smiles of many people hard at work trying to put down the huge plates of food brought to your table. The tastes of them all are so good you won't ever stop wanting to return, on every visit to Chinatown. WO HOP Is by far the best food in its area that I have found.

Just fyi, there are two seperate areas located behind two distinct store fronts. The basement Wo Hop is geared specifically towards 'foreigners' (i.e westerners/guai lo). This is the one with the signed photos. There are no Chinese folks in the basement Wo Hop because they do not serve traditional Chinese food. They only served the Americanized dishes. If you want to go to the authentic 'Chinese' Wo Hop, go a couple doors south past a few store fronts. They have menus in Chinese, traditional Chinese dishes and Chinese clientele.
