This is the real deal.

Me and my dad have been making trips into the city on sunday for almost 2 years. We don't go every sunday but at least twice a month. I found out about wo hop from a friend and went there without him. Shortly after I told him he had to go in there and check it out. We loved it. Anyone who talks bad about wo hop obviously has no appreciation about saving money. Tell me where else you could get a huge plate of food for the same price as a tiny pint on the island. You can't. I would reccomend the chicken and broccoli and the pork lo mein as a start. You will not be dissapointed. As soon as I turn the corner off canal and see those red steps leading down to wo hop I get all excited like a kid at disneyland. If you really want to some quality nyc food chinatown's the way to go!

I'd absolutely love Wo Hop if it wasn't the most inaccessible place ever. Even so, it's worth the trouble. Best egg rolls I ever had.

We go at least once a month to hop kee's at 21 Mott St. with people from work. One Chinese New Year they had a private party so we went to Wo Hop instead, of all the people that went, not one said they will ever go back. I can't tell you one dish I enjoyed it was all tasteless. I STRONGLY recommend Hop Kee's, been going there for 10 years and will not go anywhere else.

Fine so the place is open all night, and I do appreciate that, but the food is as bland and mediocre as it gets. Everything is canned and not fresh and way too greasy. I dont know what everyone is talking about, its clearly a landmark place, but mainly for those who lack any taste (IE drunk late night fools). Avoid unless there is no other choice.

I learned of Wo Hop's from my partner when out ambulance was redeployed to Manhattan, and I gotta say that this place is the absolute best. Best food, best atmosphere and best prices. Recently I was told a story by a friend about when he wore his Wo Hop t-shirt in Maine and numerous people recognized it.

When in the Big Apple, 17 Mott St. is the place to go for the best Chinese food at the best prices in Chinatown(there are two of them-make sure you go to the one downstairs). WonTon soup with lots of beef and vegetables; an orange chicken dish that's not too sweet; Special Lo Mein that's got squid and octopus(now thats special!!). It can be a long wait, but it's well worth it. Like Metman, I gotta say I'd rather not eat Chinese food if it ain't Wo Hop. I didn't give top marks for service because(like anything New York)the restaurant moves at a hectic pace. And as far as atmosphere goes, personally I enjoy the company of happy fellow New Yorkers ejoying their friends and food. Great food, Great prices, and fast service 24hours a day. You simply can't beat it ANYWHERE.
