My Overall experience at Big Wong King was enjoyable. Food was delicious. My only minor complaint was the waiter a bit slow and didn??t really check up on our table to see if we needed anything. Otherwise I liked it very much.

I attended Jury Duty last week and was smart enough to plan out my lunch meals well before the date. I asked a few friends and they all recommended a small non-discrete Chinese lunch spot called Big Wong's. Apparently everyone already knows about the place hence the long wait. The dumplings with oysters sauce and the Combo Duck and Pork over Rice was a bit excessive for one person for lunch but I was shocked at how good and cheap it was. I had arrived exactly at 12:00 and waited for 10 mins to get a table. The food arrived immediately and was so good that I brought my friend there the next day.

Went here for lunch last week, and it was amazing! The noodle soups are delicious, and I think I got served quicker than if I were at a fast food restaurant!
It's a bit crowded, but I guess that 's a testament to its value!
Tasty, quick, and doesn't break your wallet - that's a gem to find in NYC.

I have been eating at Big Wong since the mid 90's and the quality has not changed a bit. It is a hole in the wall but inside this hole is some of the most amazing food. First and foremost is the roast pork and roast duck. They are mind-bogglingly good, really. I wept openly the first time I had their roast pork it was so good. Next is the congee and their wonton mein which are fantastic. Very authentic dishes throughout the menu. Service can be difficult. If you miss the waiter's eye on the first pass it may be a while because the place is always packed. If you go as a single or double you may be seated next to another person or couple which in my opinion is a benefit. This is one of my favorite places in the world. Oh, try the fried cruller rice crepe. You won't be disappointed.

Cons: zero atmosphere and challenging service

Big Wong King is always packed because of their good food, cheap lunch deals, and ridiculously fast service. I love getting the congee, and the duck plates are always a great choice. When you're in Chinatown, check this place out!

I've been going to Big Wong since I was a kid, and its food has never ceased to please me. Their congee is fantastic and their roast pork is among the best in all five boroughs of NYC. Their ribs and roast duck are also excellent and try their fried dough with your congee for a special treat! Don't expect particularly attentive or courteous service. The yelling is part of the busy atmosphere and its all basics in this venue. Go for a quick meal, not romance.

Five members of the New York City Thrifty Gourmets Meetup group and I dined at Big Wong on Tuesday, June 3 at 8 PM. A number of us, including me, had eaten at the restaurant before and become fans of its ample, tasty dishes. I sensed that the cashier recognized that my party of six offered the possibility of a sizable check. He arranged for me to be seated, before my fellow Meetup-ers arrived. A waitress promptly set out dishes and tableware and poured glasses of tea. When another large table, located farther away from the kitchen, opened up, the staff accomodated my request to move. A member of our party who speaks Chinese and is familiar with the cuisine ordered three appetizers (two congees and a plate of ribs) and six dishes on our behalf. Not one disappointed us. They seemed freshly prepared, were delivered promptly, and were flavorful. The newbies in our group were astounded when they were informed that the cost of our dinner, including a 20% tip, was $15/person.

Went in and had a basic dish. It was cheap and descent but 1/2 the plate was white rice (not the brown that I wanted) and the other 1/2 was the main meal. It just felt cheap. I am glad I was solo. I would have been embarrassed by the service and food. If you want to be in and out in 20 minutes, this place would be fine. If you want to enjoy the company you are with, I'd pass on this one. I mean, the forks were in a bin on the table so that you take them yourself if you want them. Tables were sort of community tables bunched up against each other.

its a shame, really good food when its right. the people dont speak english. they are so rude, the service is the worst i have ever experienced. My girlfriend and i were sitting at a relatively large table, halfway through eating when six FRENCH people were sat on the same table as us, cramping us. we decided to leave, talk about lose appetite. they short change, and expect you to say nothing about it. the food has been wrong several times when we have picked up the food. for instance this evening, i travelled to Big Wongs, pick up the food, only to return home with half the order incorrect and them not giving a sh*t as they spoke such poor english. a shame as when the food is right its good food. p*ss poor most of the time though.

I've been here three times in the past week. Complaints already detailed here abound--inattentive service, dirty bathroom, crowded--but I thought the food was so good the waiter could have called me a moron and I would so still go back. The BBQ spare rib, our appetizer, showed up last, but was delicious, with the right amount of sweetness and very tender. Chicken in garlic black bean sauce was mediocre--very bland. Also, I can't handle spice to save my life, and this dish wasn't advertised as spicy, yet came with hot peppers. The pork lo mein, though, was astonishing. Authentic noodles, delicious meat, and a tasty sauce. I've gotten it every time I've gone here. The bean curd was dramatically unimpressive--sort of soggy tofu. The tea sort of smells fishy. Sweet and sour pork was wonderful, usually one of my favorite dishes but was only overshadowed by the magnificent lo mein. When you find your dish, stick with it, but there are some disappointments to wade through.

This place have been there forever. Go there if you can order in Chinese. The cheap food is because of the cheap labor. Anyone who knows how business works will know what I am talking about.

After an evening with the girls at Megu, I just need something more budget friendly. Jane suggested to go to Chinatown for some congee and that's how I was introduced to Big Wong. Oh mine, oh mine. The congee was great but the roast duck was simply unbelievable!!! Between to two of us, we finished half a duck in no time! It was actually fun to watch the Chinese around us staring at two silly girls eating duck with our fingers. I loved the food. The roast pork was great, too.

Just when I thought I had the best massage at a wonderful price and nothing could beat it, Big Wong came along and showed me that there is more than just massage to come back to NY for. Great place, indeed.

I went for the first time with over ten years ago. Moved to Chicago three years ago, and I get down to the Big Wong multiple times whenever I'm back in New York. It is, in my opinion, the best Cantonese Barbecue in New York City. The roast duck, pork and ginger scallion chicken have been consistently excellent since the first time I had them, and the prices have hardly increased since 1995. Also exceptional is the fried, cruller-like sweet bread, choy sum (sp?) with oyster sauce, called "seasonal vegetable" on their menue, and pan fried egg noodles with beef or a combination of seafood. Who cares about the lack of ambience or charming wait-staff?!?!

they are the king of roast meats, duck, chicken, pork...it's so amazing. i love that place. i would trek there from midtown for lunch, they're service is wicked fast, you orer and it's there. you're in and out and it's pretty affordable. i usually get their roast meats over rice and that's under $5! the service is fast.
though i hate it when tourists go there and they order the fried rice and lo mein and then stare at what i'm eating. the place is known for the meat not the fried rice. their dumplings are good and so is the congee. i'm sure the fried rice is great too but i'm not a tourist. definately worth going to.

This is one of chinatown's oldest and well-known restaurants. They had renovated it a couple years back. They have the best chinese food and all are served fast. They are known for their roast duck and their congee. All their food selections are good. I eat from this place every weekend. Their prices are not expensive. A lot of tourist goes there and they have good reviews from the New York Times.

The food there are sastifying. I often go there to eat with my family. Seating is ok even though sometimes there's alot of people. The noodle and rices dishes taste great. If you want some roast duck, pork or chicken on rice with ginger, try them out! They are located in the middle of Chinatown! The service is ok but could be better.

A restaurant in the middle of chinatown with great tasting, inexpensive food. I went there with a friend for lunch. We ordered three dishes and the total including tax and tip was just $11! The serving sizes of the dishes were very generous. One dish that you must try is the duck congee. Service is excellent too. The restaurant is not in the basement (most of the restaurants offering cheap food are). There is also plenty of seating available.

Might as well be Chinese fast food with the fast service, but a fine place to eat at without breaking the bank. The food is awesome from the roast duck to the yummy congee to the various rice/noodle dishes. The wait staff is sometimes too fast for their own good and come off somewhat rude occasionally to foreign tourists. While the place isn't the most clean, don't let that turn you off before eating the food. Its worth the plunge. Now avoid the bathrooms.

Obviously the Chinese translation of this place does not mean Big Wong, it actually means Great Prosperity. The food here does a great service to the name (Cantonese that is...).

I fell in love with the egg noodles in the beef broth with shrimp dumplings and slices of BBQ roast pork. This dish is my favorite and I always get it when I go there and never get tired of it.

Try the congee and the donut like deep fried dough they call "Ow Ley Soh," a delicious and sweet tasting bread.

Simply some good tasting Chinese food at incredible prices...Service is not what you are coming here for...Just make sure my ice water is kept full and my tea kettle filled with piping hot tea and that's all the service I need...Big Wong is a great place to eat and fill your stomach.

You cant get any cheaper than less than$5 for a delicious soy sauce and barbacue pork rice dish. Great place to get a good fulfilling meal but do not go for ambience or service. It's truly to just satisfy your curiousty of what TRUE chinese take out food is and not your typical American take out stores.

This place has the best Chinese style BBQ ribs in the city. I also recommend the rice dishes or the different varieties of congee (rice porridge). It's great to go for a quick lunch either alone or with a friend. It's definately not a place to go if you want to impress someone. However, if you want great food at a great price and don't mind the decor, you can't beat this place. Quick and friendly service. This is one of the best comfort food places in the city. It's somewhere you can eat and be happy.

My mom & I take it to go & eat in our car across the street--the BBQ Pork Rice & other favorites, roast duck & soy sauce chicken rice! We swap rice boxes w/ each other. If I'm by myself, I always tell them to put some extra BBQ Pork sauce on the rice and order the combo so I can have an assortment of their best meats. If I missing some veggies, I'll order a side of chinese broccoli for only a $1 extra. My whole family has unanimously concludes that this Cantonese fast food canteen serves up the BEST BBQ Pork in the world!..even better than what we'd find back home in Hong Kong. However, since the restaurant's a dive and service is atrocious, we'd rather not eat in. So, we take it to go!

Befofe I moved to NYC, my big brother told me that I had to go to Big Wong in Chinatown. He said they had the best roast pork on the planet. I think I probably grunted non-committally.
A year past. I forgot all about Big Wong. Then one day my big brother shows up in town. He says 'Let's go to Big Wong. Ok, I say. Big Wong. Right: the best roast pork on the planet.
We went to Big Wong. I was expecting something totally different; something fancier and more subdued and hidden and quiet. This dump? I said. Yeah, my big brother said. Best roast pork on the planet.
So we sat down and ate. And it really was the best roast pork on the planet. Now I go to Big Wong when I'm hungry in Chintown.

This place is best described as a Chinese fast-food type restaurant - the waiters are quick to seat you and with a wave of a hand, they will quickly come to take your order. Your food will arrive just as quickly and the prices are very good for such big, delicious portions.

Conchee, rice or a noodle dish---their all just as good. Service is lightening fast. Zero decor, this is not a date place--just a great place to get a quick, tasty and cheap meal.

Just because you can have lunch for less than $7 does not mean it is good.

Don't let the cheap price fool you! It's inexpensive but the food is delicious. Try the different types of congee aka (rice porridge or rice soup) with the fried cruller! Seafood Congee is one of my favorite and Big Wong has one of the best seafood congee ever~

Pros: inexpensive, good food

Cons: crowded on weekends, kind of stuffy

Good quick food. Great bargain. They had the best duck and wontons. Since many of their old staff moved to another restaurant after management changed, most of the old customers don't frequent at BigWong. We all go to the new place where the old staff are.

Generous portions of rice porridge and noodles really hit the spot after fighting the crowds on a busy weekend in Chinatown. No time to eat? Call ahead for takeout and fly by for soup dumplings on the road...

If you ever forget your walllet and happen to be hungry, try gathering up some loose change and go dine at Big Wong. They have been a mainstay in chinatown for years now with their traditional cantonese cuisine.
Ive been going to Big Wong for years now and have maybe tried half of the menu already. My favorites are the wontons, congee, and roast pork on rice. These three dishes would overly satisfy a 200 pound man and would have only cost him $9.
I would caution you in regard to the interesting decor. There is constant hustle and bustle in which the staff is constantly shifting around roasted animals. Table sharing is also a possibility.

I like to call it the "Soup Nazi of Chinese food" - filling, cheap, delicious Chinese fast food, but woe to the person who gets to the front of the line and still hasn't made up his mind! No reservations, cash only, closes early. You can get lunch for under $5.

Editorial from

This modest noodle and congee shop is a hit with Chinatown locals thanks to the terrific wok-fried loofahlike crullers and the mai fun noodles served with room-temperature sliced beef, roast pork or roast duck. Don't leave without sampling…
