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.

If you're looking for Americanized chinese food that consists of gobs of "gravy" this place is incredible. There are a hand full of decent restaurants in Chinatown but this is not one of them. Come on people, besides the employees, have you ever seen anyone Asian at this place? Probably not and that should tell you something

Soooooo disappointed!!! Not much better than I can get in any local Chinese food restaurant anywhere else in the city and certainly not what you travel to Chinatown for. There are so many other better choices right nearby...don't waste your time here. Boring food. Not authentic...seemed "americanized." And what a dump! I would not have cared about this if the food were spectacular, but it was not, so we sat in a dump eating blah chinese food...a complete let down as we were really looking forward to this for over a week!

I have eaten at Wo Hop since colllege days (over 35 years). Very basic in atmosphere but always excellent food at s great price. I have sent many people there over the years (from all over the country) and they all have loved it. When I come back to visit NYC, it is always on my schedule of things to do.

I've been eating here for over twenty years, and I've never had a bad meal. Detractors, say what you will, this place has been open for 70 years. Tourist trap my eye, that's no accident. This is a good place to eat that has stood the test of time.

ive been here about 4 times with my family and we always order different things. They bring out each person a bowl of rice of their choice and our dinner. The platter was good enough for us 3 women. Although it is small and grimey looking, the food is always good. Its not recommended for uptight ritsy people who need the service and the atmosphere to enjoy their food. Just relax and enjoy the food look the celebs on the wall. There has to be a reason why this place is always packed. If u go, try the eggplant with black bean sauce...excellent!
