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.

After all the stuff I have heard about this place, I was surprised that I walked away unhappy. I hit many many places in Chinatown and usually walk away happy; I was not here. I disagree with another reviewer: deep fried dumplings may be interesting, but not good. There are others that are better, even the basic Mr. Tang, and are more consistently good. The food here was all over the map. Strange, actually.

You have to keep this place in its proper context. If you're looking to be pampered and stroked in comfy surroundings...go somewhere else. If you like old school Cantonese cooking, served the same way...then you'll love Wo Hop. Try the honey crispy beef, curried noodle with onion, or anything that's prepared in their garlic sauce.

Like I said, their dumplings are the best. They are deep fried, not pan fried, so it's crispy all over, the way a dumpling should be. And the sauce is rich and tasty, not the usual watery dumpling sauce you get everywhere else. The rest of the menu, I can't vouch for, but it's tasty and surprisingly cheap.

I used to go here several years ago, & I agree with an earlier reviewer: (1)it may very well be dependent on what you order and (2) it was amazing! But, enough about the past,….the wait is outrageous! But this can totally be avoided by going to their street level restaurant of same name 2 doors down. I understand it is the same kitchen, but I am not sure. I went Mid Aug 2009 on a blazing hot Sunday. The AC was definitely challenged. The food was on average mediocre. I tasted several dishes: Shrimp & Broccoli was fair, Chix & Broccoli, Lo Mein, & Shredded Beef were vry poor. The Braised fish was good. Shrimp, chicken, and Brown fried rice dishes were also vry poor. Fried chix wing appetizer had so many feathers I feared it would fly away. (Perhaps I should have hoped.) Fried wontons were like little rocks with pork inside,(the pork was tasty). The staff was vry friendly and superfast! Unfortunately I have no better recommendation for better Chinese food in NY.
