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

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

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.
