I have been coming to Wonton Noodle Garden since they opened in 1978 and I have always found the food to be consistent. Since the pandemic, their hours have been sporatic at best and they close at 9:00pm sometimes 8:00pm if they are slow. I...have definately seen a change in the customers. The tourists and office workers have not totally come back to Chinatown. Still, the food is consistently good. I started the meal with the Pork and Chive Steamed Dumplings and they were large. I never remember them being that big before but they were cooked perfectly and served with soy sauce on top. They were delicious and very filling. For the main meal, I had the Cantonese Wonton Soup which they now call a "Mixed" Soup. I had it with Wontons, Roast Pork and Shanghai noodles and it was a different take on the dish. The only bad part of the dish was the Roast Pork. It tasted fatty and was a bit chewy, not as good as it normally is when I order the dish. The Shanghai Noodles were a nice change and were cooked perfectly. The soup itself is always delicious. The Wontons were also larger than I remember and I had no problem with that. The customers have changed a lot with it being mostly locals and NYU students who live in the area, not the restaurant workers and Chinese families that I used to see. It is also a lot quieter than normal for a Friday night. The food and service still are consistent.More

I'm sure I've eaten here before back in my younger days. More recently, we had a wonton noodle soup. I don't love egg noodles, and the soup is just MSG soup, but the wontons are where it's at. They're plump with lots of shrimp in...the filling. I believe each order comes with five pieces. If you've got a hankering for some meaty wontons, this is it!More

Went here for lunch and really enjoyed this place. We were quickly seated and got tea without needing to ask. We got a veg fried awesome and a lo Mein with sweet and sour chicken. The fried rice had an amazing smoky taste. Would highly...recommend. Prices were reasonable and the open kitchen is fun to watch.More

I love coming to Wonton Noodle Garden. I have been coming here since I was in junior high and it is now almost 48 years later and I still enjoy the food and service. It was touch and go for a while with the restaurant...due to COVID. They are now opened both inside and outside. I still love their Cantonese Wonton Soup with wontons, roast pork and egg noodles. It is the best cure all when you have a cold and still tastes just as good then as now and it still rids you of a cold. Their Spring Rolls are excellent as well. I always find the service to be very nice but they are getting busy again. People are pent up for Chinese food and going to Chinatown and it is coming back in strives. This will always be my 'go to' place for a nice dinner in Chinatown.More

My friends and family have been coming to this restaurant for about 10 years now whenever we visit NYC Chinatown. The service is fine- friendly but not overly talkative- there's actually a Chinese waiter that speaks Spanish. The food is always super fresh and the...restaurant and restroom is exceptionally clean for NYC. The wonton noodle soup is fantastic- they actually give you a whole shrimp inside each wonton and the noodles are the real chewy kind. The beef chow fun is great. The Mapo tofu was not my favorite but everything else is very tasty. Their outdoor seating area has a.c so it's really nice out there in the summer. I'm not thrilled they are serving everything on plastic plates due to covid but it's alright since the food is so good.More

we have visited wonton noodle a couple of times - the dumpling were good. we just stopped last Saturday afternoon. we walked in , and were met by the most RUDE guy we ever had the dis-pleasure to interact with. ''WHAT YOU WANT '' as...we stood near the front counter. this guy was a nasty , rude, big mouth. I lasted - @ 3 minutes, nothing is good enough to put up with such a nasty rude jerk. - that place is X off my list of Mott st restaurants. don't know how the owner could put up with such crap customer service .More

Not a fancy restaurant by any means, but the food is very good and service is quick. Ate here with my husband and two adult children. We each ordered something different, plus fried rice. I had the shrimp and pork dumplings with noodles. The shrimp...made the dumplings sweet. We also ordered the house special lo mein, General Tso’s chicken and pork lo mein. Everyone at the table raved. We will go back.More

Food was fine, not great but ok. Service was really bad though and on top that they had a 15% service change and don’t tell you about it. I only realized this due to other reviews. So if wanting to tip the normal 20%, you...would only add 5% but they don’t mention they already added 15% unless you ask. There is a sign on the wall that says “we add a 15% charge to parties of 8 more”, we were a party of 2.More

I swear that people can get spooked by anything. I stopped in Wonton Noodle House for dinner and the place was practically empty. I was really surprised. Whenever I get a sniffle this is my 'go to' place for dinner for their Cantonese Wonton Soup...with Roast Pork and Egg noodles. I love their dumplings as well. They are always perfectly cooked. Their Cantonese soups are the cure all for the cold. I am not sure what they put in the chicken stock but it does the trick every time. I always find the service to be very good as well and the prices are fair.More

I love Wonton Noodle Garden. It is so typical Chinatown NY with the close tables and the crazy lines and noise. It is a restaurant that has been bustling for over thirty years. Just passing by and watching them cook in the window making their...famous soups is fun. I am been watching the same guy make soup there for twenty years. When ever I feel a cold or flu coming on, this is the first place I go for a remedy. Their chicken soup is the best and is a real cure all. I always have the Cantonese Wonton Soup with Wontons, Roast Pork and Egg Noodles and I swear to God it clears what ever is in my system out and I feel terrific the next day. Plus the service and the food is excellent. I enjoy their roast pork buns, dumplings and spring rolls as well. You can walk out of there and not pay more than $20.00 with tip for a full meal. Their dishes are very good too if you like traditional Cantonese food but the soups are what I go for when I eat here. It is a very much New York experience.More

Really good wonton and noodles. The bbq meats are really good too. This is a place I will keep coming back. It is also one rare place that takes credit card in Chinatown.

Freezing bus tour made us hungry so soup in Chinatown sounded wonderful! Everything made right there and served hot and quickly. Noodle soup was sooo good. Watching the quality and volume of food from a very small kitchen area was amazing! I had marinated tofu...that was very good too. Lines at 2pm so you moved along but food was unbelievable and such big portions!More

Plucked up the courage to go in. (I really fancied a sweet and sour chicken). Quickly seated - although it was busy and made to feel welcome. Cannot remember the name of one of the dishes I had - but was very pleased with the...Sweet and Sour C i.e. just what the doctor ordered. Just tonnes of egg fried rice. There was no way in a million years i was going to finish it all. Real buzz inside - a mixture of tourists and locals. Lots of noise. It was great. I probably ended up leaving half of my food as simply could not finish due to quantity. Astounded at how cheap it was. This is NYC! Incredibly good value.More

Been eating here for years. Great food, typical Chinatown service, not very friendly but you’ll be done in less than half an hour. The noodle soups are prepared in the dining area, sitting areas are small and tight space. The wontons and dumplings are excellent....Other dishes are made in the kitchen, takes a bit longer but just as good. Take outs are good too, paid the extra quarter and have the soup in another container.More

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
