No trip to NYC can be completed without a visit to Chinatown and this is the place for good food and good value. It is not fancy, if that is what you are looking for go some where else but if you want good Chinese food just sit down an order. When I first came here, awhile back, I waited... More

Sadly, we visited this tourist trap in Chinatown. Well, I guess Chinatown itself is a tourist trap, so maybe I should lighten up. But, the servers are polite and efficient. Then the food. Yuck. Salty, low level quality, fried garbage. We had the veggie egg rolls and the spare ribs for appetizers. Egg rolls OK; spare ribs horrible--I actually saw... More

We're here for the braised lobster, cooked with ginger and shallots (scallion) and this place didn't disappoint. We got two of the little beauties for $28. The duck with stir fry veggies was also fantastic. This is THE Cantonese restaurant in the Chinatown district of New York. It's a typical Hong Kong eatery, lino floors, cheap tables and chairs (the... More

I have been eating at this place for over 20 years and have yet to fail. Food is very good, simple and superb fast service. Portions are big so order to share.

The food wasn't great tbh, duck swimming in sauce which was the same sauce used for another dish we ordered. The service was nice to begin with but when it came to paying the bill, just because we didn't leave a 10% tip they went nuts! One of the waiters, an older guy, started hitting the table saying you leave... More

This authentic Chinese place is always packed and people don't care. They will wait or they will do take out and take the food home. Their Hong Kong Style noodle soup with roast duck or roast pork is the best. You also can't beat their price. Although this place is not the cleanest restaurant in town especially their restrooms, but... More

the food and service was good as we have been longing for some good chinese food. the operator is from HK and the place is mostly frequented by locals. strongly recommend this outlet if you are searching for good chinese food. the lobster is also excellent

In New York city I was on the search for the best Char Siu/Cantonese Roast Pork I could find and was directed to this place - it didn't disappoint! The surroundings are basic and the service curt, but i was here for the food and nothing else - and the quality of food for the price was unbelievable. No pretense,... More

The "Wong" in Big Wong means prosperous and this restaurant is one of the more original HK style roast duck restaurants in Chinatown. Since the 80's other similar restaurants named something "Wong" had popped up, but this still has the finest duck you can get anywhere in New York. They also have other good stuff, but if you had to... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
