Seriously...how is this place getting the most reviews and gets 3.5 stars. This place does NOT serve good Chinese food...all the tourists go here thinking they are getting some excellent Chinese food when they are getting something that is sub-par. I suggest Congee Village or Congee Bowery. Once you try that, then you will understand what I mean by Wo Hop. I know a lot of white people telling me that Wo Hop is the best, when well that's pretty much the only place they have went to, that and some horrible restaurants. I'm Chinese and I grew up in chinatown, trust me, I know what real Chinese food is and where the best food are, and Wo Hop is not one of them.

If you want delicious New York Cantonese anyone in NY knows this is the spot 24/7! I've been eating here since 1985 and never had anything I and my friends don't love. I was describing it to a friend on the LIRR and people butted in to the conversation to share their praises for it. It's not the ground floor Wo Hop (that's the tourist one) but the one at the bottom of the STEEP stairs! It's similar to sitting in the refrigerator with its white tile walls and cold air blowing in, but the walls are covered with Wo Hop lovers pictures. The flavors are great, the thin or wide noodles are delicious. Don't order too much because they give you LOTS for the price.

I am chinese. I grew up in chinatown and im 22 now. My mother tells me that its been open since the 70's. Ok so heres the deal. The food is not great there. Its just a spot for tourists that think theyre getting some real chinese food. I mean dont get me wrong i go there often. When im done partying in the city and get to chinatown around 4am thats the only place thats open. If you tourists want some authentic chinese food go across the street, theres plenty. If your broke, or need something on the go or late night, wo hop would be the spot. But if your looking for a good authentic chinese dinner, as i said, go across the street. Take it from a chinese person people. You cant go wrong.

I'm from Australia and was recommended to go there by some cops from the Upper West Side and I gotta say, I'm glad we made the effort to get there. The dumplings were awesome, and it is great to have unpretentious food taste so good, at a great price and a decor that made me feel at ease instead of all the glitz. In the end, it the food that matters. To all you guys who have easy access to it, enjoy it cos I miss it!!

If you don't love WO HOP, your taste buds are ignorant. Don't let the 20 year old booths and tables fool you. The best chinese food in NYC is at 17 Mott St. The spare ribs fall off the bone. On any given night, you'll see cops from precincts as for north as the 25th in harlem. The hell with the tourists, this place should be strictly for the natives.

The food was terrible. Everything. I actually had to send back food, which is something I never do since I am a server, but unfortunately that is how bad it was. The only good stuff was the coke I ordered, and the fortune cookie, but sadly the latter came a little too late.
