Without a doubt this has to be the best Chinese food in the five (5) boroughs. Make sure you go to the downstairs location as it is a million times better than the upstairs location. I have been going to Wo Hop for 30+ years and have never had anything I did not like. It is a tiny place and there is usually a line, but it is more than worth the wait. Go in the afternoon and the wait will not be as long. If you enjoy Chinese food - this is the place to go.

This restaurant, which has been around since the 1920's and has even hosted my mom when she lived in the city, has the all time best Chinese food I have EVER had. Below the other Wo Hop, which is a completely different establishment, this Wo Hop actually has better food. The food is excellent, spectacular, the portions are large, and platters are cheap, too; one receives a lot of bang for his or her few bucks. Although the place is small and very cramped, it is, unlike most places in China Town, very clean, and I have never had a problem there once about anything. They even sell Wo Hop T-shirts there, and the walls are covered with celebrities who have eaten there. For a tiny little Chinese food joint, it's quite famous. I highly recommend the Hot and Sour soup, which is actually sweet and not that spicy. Overall, an excellent restaurant.

Wo Hop is one of the best places to dine for Chinese food if you and your family are ever in Chinatown. The food is inexpensive, and the portions are huge. It's actually underground, so it's a bit hard to spot at first. The only problem is that there is a lack of seating, so cramping of people is easy unfortunately. However, the most important thing is, the food is very, very good!

I heard about this place from a friend many years ago. He found out about it from his dad who used to drive a taxi in nyc and would eat here after his shift.

I come here every Christmas day to eat. The line gets to be well over an hour long, but it's always been worth it.

Order the chicken chow fun. The egg drop soup (and add spicy mustard) is outstanding.

Please, do not complain about the line though.

I've taken friends from Spain, Seattle, and France here, and they all loved it.

PROS: cheap hard to find and secluded
CONS: tourists seem to have found it lately

u can image yourself as chow-yung-fat, sitting and smoking and enjoying the underground establishment.
food is not amazing but good enough, coz it is around the clock and for so reason, the later it is the better the food...again, Wo Hop isn't a place u go to when u want fine dinning! go when u are in the mood for acting a movie.

PROS: Underground....Hard to find!
CONS: Underground....Hard to find!
