Standard food. Expected better. No cards only cash. Had better Chinese food in UK. Very large portions but food was fairly bland. Lots and lots of onions in the beef dish which was not explained on the menu.

A visit here was with our American friends who had frequented many times over the years. Certainly a different Chinatown to the one in London (which is the one I am used to) as it is much larger and appears to focus less on the...More

When we can, we always eat at Hop Kee when we are in NYC. It has always been a good gastronomic experience in previous past, but this time, we were quite disappointed. We ordered spare ribs and it was burnt, we brought it to the...More

Reluctantly we have given this two stars as the food was good and large (if not wasteful) portions. However the setting leaves a lot to be desired and the waiters were intimidating. The service was non existent but the waiter had the cheek to rudely...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
