mericanized Chinese food, but Very Tasty and at a Price you will be able to easily afford...and look for Wong San Ying's picture up on the wall, in the "bathroom corner", posing with a Broadsword...

Disappointed. Noodles overcooked with dark meat. Service was rude. Atmosphere wasn't good, and the restrooms were not well kept. Food was sub par.

I am reading these reviews. There is no way that Wo Hop is authentic Chinese food. Chow Mein is not authentic Chinese food. The menu had to differentiate between the real Cantonese style Chow Mein and the American Chow Mein...that is bad news. A real Chinese place would not serve the American version. General Tso's Chicken and Egg Foo Young are American too. I realized that most people dont know what real Chinese food is. Most people think Egg Rolls, General Tso's Chicken and fried chicken wings with fried rice that is dark in color doused in hot sauce, Wontons with THICK skin and near no meat is real Chinese food. I grew up in Chinatown and never seen those items until I moved out of Chinatown. Do yourself a favor...look for a restaurant in Chinatown where the majority of the patrons are Asian. And order what they are eating.

had no problem waiting in line for an hour. but it did make the expectations a bit high. it was fun to eat in the tiny basement next to a hilarious family. that, i think was much better than the food. wonton soup was wonton soup. chicken dishes tasted like chicken dishes and their very spicy dishes were less spicy than their regular dishes. i didn't say WOW to anything, maybe we ordered the wrong things? overall, i think its a bit too hyped up here. if u want a funny experience and great service, go. (if ur willing to wait). but you can find the same food anywhere else.

I have been eating at Wo-hops for over 35 years. The food is consistent and fresh, and flavorful. I have many favorites.....The dumplings are to die for. I also love the sour cabbage soup. The waiters are the same, and the food is the same. They are open 24 hours 7 days a week. Check it out, you won't be sorry!

Been going to WH since before there was an Upstairs. I go every time I get back to NY. So good I want to cry. Spareribs, Lobster Cantonese, Chinese Broccoli, Won Ton Soup...the best Cantonese in town...can't wait to get back.

I have been a fan of Wo hop for almost 40 years and their signature dishes are still awesome. Some standouts are... Wanton Soup, Egg rolls, Bone less Spare ribs. and my favorite and one of the best anywhre is the Noodles with Shrimp and Lobster sauce. The shrimps are jumbo, cooked to a crunchy perfection. The low mein and fried rice are also excellent. The atmosphere does not rate well with the wives, so leave them home. This is the best value in NYC.
