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

This is another fantastic restaurant in Chinatown that gives you an authentic Chinese restaurant experience. While you will receive poor service from waiters who speak poor English, the food will arrive extremely quickly once ordered. This is an excellent place to stop by for a quick meal solo or with friends.

Big Wong is located in the heart of China Town. I thought that as the locals eat there, it must be good. Now I can confirm it.

I haven't eaten here in over 15 years. I believe the last visit here was when my wife and I were still dating. You don't come here for the service or decor, just great food for decent prices. I would even go as far as to call it a hole in the wall. Big Wong has been here forever and... More

People goes to Big Wong for their excellent food like char siew, roasted duck and siew pai kuat(roasted pork ribs). No one goes to Big Wong for friendly courteous service because they will never find it. The roast duck was very good, siuw gaw and noodles with braised beef brisket were all very good. Ask for the chili oil which... More

Cash only too, prices were high for what we got! tried shrimp schezchen, shrimp lo me in, shrimp and fried noodles, and... More

Menu is great but the roasted duck is fantastic. I have visited many oriental restaurants in the us and this is by far the best!!! Superb

Consistent, good Cantonese style dishes. Has the typical roasted duck and chicken hanging in the window. Great beef chow fun and chow mein. Nice rice dishes. Not so fond of their version of congee. Crowded.

Went there with a friend for dinner. Food was quite good even if the setting and the service could be a bit better. It was quite packed, a good testimony of the food!

It wasn't easy to locate on Mott Street though the signage was in bright yellow, it can be quite challenging since the door to the restaurant was small. The Asian in us were craving for rice and anything Chinese and Big Wong didn't disappoint. Apparently, Zagat rated for several years now. Don't expect cleanliness like any typical Chinese restaurant, the... 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.
