We love the vibe and dinner at this restaurant. It felt like we spent some time at a place full of culture and basic food with people who cared about it. I said Yum many times I was very glad we visited

There is nothing positive that I can say about this establishment. The entrance is down tricky steep steps to basement level and tables are crowded into a small area. After being seated, we were brought tea and water (which we had not requested but would...More

Last time we visited the city, we ate at Wo Hop, and the kids were insistent that we return. Again, it was excellent, especially the Szechuan shrimp. Large portions, quick service and fun place. Cash only! Love it and will return again.

This is the one to visit. We had to queue for about 20 minutes on the stairs but passed the time chatting to locals, one of whom gave me a bottle of red wine he was holding! “New York hospitality” he said with a grin....More

Went with 3 adults and 2 children. The children liked the bright yellow table and bright red bench seating: "It's like a Chinese Friendly's," one of them said. The adults were extremely disappointed in the food. Everything was soggy, sopped in too much sauce which...More

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
