Sounds to me like trustinjustin went to the wrong wo hop. The wo hop that everyone is raving about is one that is in a basement. You have to go DOWNSTAIRS from the street to get in. There is another wo hop that is next to the real wo hop which is a street level restaurant, that place should be avoided. All that I can say is that wo hop has great simple food for a great price. Well worth checking out.

Everything about this place is fantastic. It's that simple.

i read the reviews on here and was so excited to try it out. so, i donned my best element-braving gear and headed out for the promised majesty. i can say without a doubt that the 2 best parts of the experience were... 1) the ease with which i found the address 2) leaving the food tasted like cardboard flavoured water, even after the dousing in soy and msg and was way overpriced. as an added bonus, the service was surly and memorably charmless. the service was matched, quite nicely actually, by the impossibly harsh fluorescent lighting. Avoid Wo Hop. if someone suggests you go there, remove them from your address book and put your phone on voicemail.

This little gem hasn't changed in the years I've been going there, and thank heaven it hasn't. Yes its noisy and crowded with all the typical New York hustle and bustle, but hey, it only adds to the experience. Born and raised in NYC, but here in PA. now, I'm homesick for REAL Chinese food! Nothing here even comes close! It is the best I have ever had and I will be sure to visit it again when I go back to the city. Out of a rating of 1-10, this place deserves an 11

I live in NYC for most of my youth and I moved to Va. when I was 17 for college. People ask me why I have 4 shirts from some place called wo hop and I tell them because it's the best chineese food on the east coast. Every time I go home I make sure I visit and get an order of oysters in black bean sauce. Prices are always great , portions are generous, and the atmosphere is an example of what makes NY great. It gets my highest recommendations.

If you go, get the Special House Won Ton soup, OUT OF THIS WORLD. Cantonese Lobster is a big hit too! Love the picture of celebrity William Petraglia over in the corner, wasn't he on "The Soprano's"?

The place hasn't changed in the 25+ years that I have been eating here. But the food is more than worth the visit. Now I bring my children and they love it. The waiters could be more friendly but you go there to eat. Eat as much as you can...until your next visit.
