This food is so yummy in my tummy. My favorite dish is the pork dumplings. They make my tongue tingle. It is not just the food that is delicious--the employees are yummy too. In fact, I am planning to learn how to cook Chinese food just so I can spend more time at this restaurant. One day I hope to be as yummy as the employees. But alas, that is just a dream--a yummy dream of an attractive man that I hope will one day happen. I care so much about this dream that I am willing to throw away all of my plaid shirts so I can truly become a part of the Chinese culture. I recently took up the language and I am the best in my class. (Not really much of a surprise--it has been scientifically proven that attractive men are the best at Mandarin.) In five months I have already learned three characters and I draw them with such grace and elegance that I truly believe I can complete the fluency test that I plan on taking next Wednesday. One day I hope that this attractive man (me) will be as yummy as my soon to be fellow employees. Although you are yummier than me we all know I am the more attractive man. As I work on my yumminess, I think of this restaurant and how it changed my life for the better. You rock 137 Broadway Chinese Rstrtn! Oh yeah. -Just another attractive man on 3rd st. Apt. 2B. P.S. I meant know offense to the fourth graders I take Chinese with. When I said I was the best in the class I meant it because I am intellectually and attractively superior but it does not mean that you will not excel in other subjects!
Do not believe ANY of the negative reviews. They are ALL lies. We have been going there once, twice or 3 times a month for 8-10 years and have never had a bad dish or experienced poor service. Often you have to wait on a line going up the stairs, sometimes down the block. Why would people go there and wait 15-45 minutes if it's bad? The won ton soup is the best; the egg rolls are superb and the roast pork (and other) chow fon is what I want for my last meal. The only chow fon that was better was served at the long gone Lin's Garden on Bayard St. (and maybe the also gone Hong Fat on Mott). Tea and great NYC water are served when you sit down and you can sit as long as you want to. Everyone that goes there loves it. I have been around the world wearing my Wo Hop t-shirt and someone always says, "Oh yeah! Wo Hop!" Our picture (and many others) hangs on the wall and it's fun being recognized occasionally. We used to go to many other restaurants in Chinatown and many are very good, with their own lines, but we always return to the best. Sometimes if we cannot spend time waiting, we will go to Hop Kee or someplace else but Wo Hop (downstairs only) is number 1. No longer open 24 hours, but until 4am, I think.
my co-workers son that lives in NYC recommended Wo Hop. I took my mother and daughter last week while we were on vacation from Texas. We stood in line for about an hour, but it was well worth the wait. The price we a nice break from all the other places we had eaten at in NYC. Also folks in front of us had driven two hours to come have dinner at Wo Hop. They said they make the trip about every three months to get their Wo Hop fix. It was fun waiting in the line and heading down the stairs. The place was soooo small, but totally cool! I loved the pics all over the wall and intend on send one to them the Dallas Cowboys new home. We are use to the small little egg rolls we get here so we ordered two orders of egg rolls. Big mistake the rolls are LOGS!!! They were huge! We noticed the portion size on the food was huge as well so we shared. The food was awesome! The staff was fun. the check was small. It was by far the BEST meal we had on the whole trip. Thanks Wo Hop!
I was in this restaurant several times and I always tried different Bukharian, Russian and other middle east food. I liked the atmosphere there, every time I just steped in I was nicely greeted by the owners, the service was pretty good, it seems to me that every customer there is treated as a good friend and it makes you feel a guest not a customer. So being in this restaurant I was proved that you can meet asian hospitality even in the heart of NYC. If you wanna get fantastic glatt kosher food for a reasonable price you have to visit this cozy place.
I love going here!! \\The Waiter John is the best!! They are so friendly there! most Chinese restaurants we go to.. they throw down the utensils at ya which is such an insult..Ok So I recommend this place for great food and friendly service!! love it!! this month I think I have been there 3 -4 times!! with my family...with our best friends!! it just rocks! especially the CRAB!!! hmmm we going back for my son's 19th birthday! oh yeah!
We've been ordering from Mee for 3 years. They are ALWAYS prompt.. Daily delivery average time is: less than 15 minutes. I don't know what this other person is talking about. Their food is very good, they come quick, their prices are excellent!!! I don't know who this person is that has put a bad review -- but they should 1) try spell check and 2) learn to communicate effectively. Perhaps that was the problem.
Oh so disappointing experience...it wasn't horrible but too many flaws for my taste.... service was ok, though not too quick, and food with lot of ingredients but cold and kind of greasy...also me and my boyfriend ordered same type of dishe (spicy and sweet) but dosage of spices differ greatly...mine too spicy and his for dietitians... Maybe somebody would like but I wasn't too thrilled
My husband and I visited Nom Wah over Memorial Day weekend (2014). It came highly recommended, and we waited in line about 45 minutes for a table (spend your time reading about the history of the parlor and of Doyle St.). It was definitely worth the wait. Friendly staff and great dim sum. Can't wait to take the in-laws there for a treat!
The layout and the decor of this place is magical and transports you to some exotic, asain fantasy land. The hundreds of empty bird cages on the ceiling are beautiful metaphor and the white leather sette's are so 1950's glam. The food was amazing and elaborate with good surprises with almost every bite. Delish!
Excellent food ....fast service for take out delivery... I highly recomend the House Special fried rice....Perfectly blended together !......All the food is fantastic including the frajittas by the pound.....chicken or beef.....the mexican food is very tasty also..nice seating area ..not expensive very courtious...!
