    New cooks

    about 4 years ago everything changed. The food used to be absolutely amazing and cheap as hell. There are now new cooks and new waiters (a few of the waiters are still the same). The prices went up (beers used to cost $1, now cost $2.50 so you know the food prices went up as well) The food is still good and def worth checking out, however 4 years ago the food was the best in the world!

    NOT THAT GREAT

    I was there on 7/09. My hot and sour soup was sweet--didn't like it like that. Lo mein's were so-so, fried rice too. Sesame chicken with broccoli WAS very good, a very large portion. Soup, rice, egg rolls all have to be ordered as extras. Wor shu duck (crispy duck) was dried up and fatty, no plum sauce, just brown sauce over lettuce. So that is my report. I guess it just depends on what you get. My guess is the higher priced specialties (like the sesame chicken) are probably the better choices. The place was crowded with a standing line (on a Tuesday nite!) but only 1 oriental customer noted.

    Devotion and flavor well worth the walk downstairs

    From a strictly preparation and presentation point of view a rare find in a Chinatown restaurant at the price. Since I love old-fashioned lack of pretentiousness this place ranks higher than most would put it for atmosphere. Formica tables, walls plastered with police insignia and photos of grateful patrons. Judge by the lines the loyalty of us old patrons. Very fine ribs. Easily the best blend of aromas and flavors in the hot & sour soup. The salt & pepper fried squid with green and red pepper, both scallions and onions is superb. Do not, I repeat, do not confuse it with the place of the same name directly upstairs to the south!

    Get your Chinese Grub On in NYC

    The last time I was at Wo Hop (embarassing to say) was back in the day, the Fall of 1974, maybe a bit later. I haven't had the opportunity to get back there even when I've returned to NYC, but I must say I had one of the best times and tastiest Chinese, albeit a bit greasy, meals of my life. I was with some very special friends and met some crazy people there. We had been out dancing our butts off at clubs like the Better Days and The Bonsoir, or the Nickel Bar and ended up downtown at Wo Hop. Ahhh, what memories. All I need now is to see a Crazy Eddie commercial and I'll be ok..... :)

    Can't Wait to go back

    I am a out of town cop and I also say it is the best food in chinatown. Good food, good service, great value. ( I think most of the bad reviews may be from folks that ate at the upstairs Wo Hop) Go down stairs and have a good meal and great time with the rest of us.

    Better than ever!

    I have been going to Wo Hop since 1983 and I have never been disappointed with the food or the service! The atmosphere is very unique - I love that they have not given into all the fame by re-doing the place or increasing prices - Great quality food, generous portions at great prices! Avoid the upstairs restaurant! The basement level is the best!!!
