I have been coming here since 1968 and can't find enough wonderful things to say about this place! The food is excellent and an incredible value. I doubt you will find a better value elsewhere. OK, the decor could be spruced up a bit, but given a choice, I'd much rather eat great food than pay for ambiance when the food sucks. And, after reading someone elses comment, I have to come to the restaurants defense...I HAVE seen many Asian people eating there, especially downstairs. I have gotten to know many of them and they tell me they would not even consider eating somewhere else. All in all, this place is an Asian landmark for good food at an unbeatable price.

My favorite chinise resturant in the city (for food not decor!). The food is delicious and huge portions. My belly loved it, but heart wasn't thrilled! Downstairs or upstairs are both great, but I think the downstairs is cheaper, but much more cramped. I usually eat upstairs, I like the extra room. Great place to go to enjoy a great (inexpensive) meal, not the place to impress a date.

i'm cantonese. this food is nasty. and yes, i ate with my taiwanese friend at the downstairs part. the way to tell the food will be bad before you have to force yourself to eat it? there is not an asian soul in the resteraunt besides the staff. there are no chopsticks in sight (you have to ask) and there arent even chinese characters on the menu. i've been to chinese resteraunts in arizona and they have the characters for chrissakes. even something as simple as spring rolls were terrible. note to anybody who doesnt know any better... thin wonton wrappings on the eggroll makes it a better one. the thick wrapping that is more like a fried dough is the bad kind. no offense. this place sucks. the food is cheap but bad, very greasy, i can taste the MSG in the food. but hey, ther service was good.

Without a doubt the best Chinese food and value you can find. A definite place to eat if you a TRUE New Yorker. Open anytime. Cramped and crowed but worth it. Eat downstairs NOT upstairs. Unbelievably inexpensive.

Wo Hop, located in the heart of Chinatown, is my favorite Chinise resturant. The seating is cramped and a little tight, but the food makes up for it. The food is very delicious and always served up well, in huge portions, at a great price. For under $8-10, you can a huge meal. They are open very late (I've been there as late as 3 AM).
