Typical Chinese Experience

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... read 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

I go here about once a week. I've actually only gotten 2 things here, and both are delicious. I usually get the Sambo Fan (I think that's how you spell it), it's roast pork, chicken, and an egg over white rice. I also get the beef with peas in the brown sauce over rice. I'm not sure what it's called... More

I guess it's hard to remain consistent forever. The Roast Pork was the best part. Duck was tasty but VERY greasy and Luke warm. Shrimp fried rice was very good. Wonton Soup was just ok. My husbands 1st time in Chinatown didn't impress him as I wanted to. The experience overall would be 3 out of 5 stars. The waiters... More

Speedy cantonese food and we get what we pay for - good portioning, taste better than many other Chinese food that you will find in other non-chinese countries or those that you get at express counter ready-cooked food. Decently priced and in fact cheaper than many nearby restaurants. With the price we pay for and this is not a fine-dining... More

We were recommended this hotel when we visited Chinatown but were very disappointed. If my wife would have visited the toilet before the meal we would have walked out. The service was poor we had to call the waitress over to take the order, the food even though was a huge portion was very average. My wife visited the ladies... More

I've been coming here since I was a child. The food has always been great and you can't find anything more authentic than big wong king. The prices are also very good and can't be beat. My favorite fish here is the soy sauce chicken, I've never tasted a better recipe elsewhere. The service is usually fast and doesn't involve... More

At the end of a long day of shopping, my mom and I were craving Chinese. Since we were only staying a few blocks from Chinatown, we thought we would give Big Wong's a try. The atmosphere was not much to look at, but we've had some awesome food here in NYC in some dumpy looking places so that wasn't... More

Our friend who lives in NYC took us here for lunch, we wanted some good Chinese food as a change from all the steak and delis. The wait was short, service was good, food came out quickly. We ordered a bunch of dishes which were priced well for the area, and the portions were good. Our relatives who are used... More

I haven't been here since the 80's. I wasn't sure if I was in the right place... hanging ducks, chicken, etc... a bunch of places similar... However, I knew I was in right place... Nasty downstairs to bathroom and that same stench... But please, don't be deterred. I had roast duck, beef tripe, broccoli, and won tons. Great food. I... More

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.
