Not entirely sure what to think

So with all the rave reviews about this place, I had to give it a try. I first came for an early lunch on a Saturday morning. They had a special on Lobster with Ginger and Scallions so I thought I would give that a try. I was greatly disappointed in how bland the dish was. I have had this... read more

I have been eating at Bug Wong's forever! It is, by far, the BEST Chinese food in NYC. It doesn't get more authentic. The only thing that has changed over the years is that the menu us now completely in English as well as Chinese and there are more non-Asian diners now. I only wish I had photos to post,... More

My family and I are on a visit from Australia to New York to celebrate my birthday. We are 4 adults and 1 baby. My son who lives in NY and his wife joined us for dinner at Big Wong King's. The restaurant is busy and not at all fancy. Very much a no frills establishment. The waitstaff are friendly... More

This place was recommended to us by the hotel front desk to get an authentic chinatown experiences. We were a bit bummed that the place filthy and service nonexistent. The food is ok I guess nothing to go crazy about, I am not sure what all the hype about this place is all about.

My mother first took me here for Chinese food as a child and I still come back so many years later. The restaurant is literally a staple in Chinatown's history and it remains here for many reasons as diners come back over and over. It might not be the fanciest Chinese restaurant you'll ever visit, but you'll be in for... More

Tried the roast pork which is very very good. Also the congee with fish, highly recommend it. The roast duck is just ok.

This place was really enjoyable to eat in. The place was buzzing and felt very authentic. The food was incredibly tasty and cheap and the service was nice and fast. You are given complimentary tea while you choose what you want to eat.

This is not a fancy (or clean) place. There's no such thing as good service- service is almost nonexistent. But the food is good, and that means a lot to me. A few things to keep in mind so you won't be disappointed: - Chinese staff are efficient. They won't waste time being nice to you, answering questions, or coming... More

You don't go to Big Wong if you want ambience or an elegant setting. You go there for the best Chinese food in Chinatown. From what I've been told, you have to go with a local (or someone who can read the local menus) to get the best plates, but I've never had a bad experience ordering off the printed... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
