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.

I as well do not see the big fuss, I have had much better chinese food in the boroughs. I suppose it is good for late night picking, but to go out of the way to eat there is not recommended. Service was fine, and prices were very cheap. Overall wouldn't go out of my way.

I was introduced to this place in high school and we used to make runs in the middle of the night to get some eats. The beef chow fun and General Tso's chicken are highly recommended! I can't speak of many other dishes, since I stick to the tried, tested and proven. I have taken many here and ordered the aforementioned, and nothing but accolades from the newcomers.

17 students for Lennoxville, Quebec, Canada, in NYC for the Model United Nations, were seated within 30 min. The food was served fast and was great. We all got t-shirts and are now the Wo Hop Crew. We highly recommend the place. Go for it.

The food was okay but not great. Pretty cheap, typical for Chinatown. Lots of other choices in the neighborhood. Most interesting features: tiny hole in the ground (basement), through a most nondescript entrance - amazing it has lasted this long; the many autographed photos of local celebs, firefighters and police on the walls; and that it's open 24 hours.

I knew my dining party and I were in for a rude awakening when I didn't see one local in the joint...that is except for the waitstaff. Usually a telling condemnation on the authenticity of any ethnic cuisine. Run from this place....run to any of the other neighboring establishments like Tong Yan Guy, the Wo Hop upstairs, or Hop Kee for better food and value.
