Cheap, good Chinese restaurant in Chinatown NYC

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... read more

Was walking by here on quick trip to ChinaTown. Going by TripAdvisor reviews we tryed it. I'm very glad we did. I ordered the Roast Duck&Pork Noodle soup. It was by far the best tasting broth in any asian soup I have ever had. Lots of thin noodles,chuncks of roast pork and duck. Delicious! My wife ordered the dumpling soup.... More

To say that I grew eating the food from this place is an understatement since I was born and raised in Chinatown. When I was a kid my mom would send me to buy roast duck or roast pork over flat rice noodles in a bowl of soup several times a week. Over five years ago I moved away from... More

The best roast duck, roast pork, spare ribs and soy chicken around. We take out from here whenever we can. Their rice noodle and pan fried noodles are also good.

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... 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

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.

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.
