As a very large group, we were served large dishes of food to each table to enjoy sort of buffet style. The sesame chicken and the steak and broccoli were the best dishes! The waiters were very friendly, and helped us with directions as well as made sure we had enough to even take some dinner home with us!

I first found this restaurant by chance 13 years ago when visiting new york. I've been back to new york a few time since and despite never actually writing down it's address I've managed to find it again and again. It's really good food, at an unbelievably low price. Well worth it.

I actually look forward to Jury duty as an excuse to go to Chinatown. Nothing fancy and cash only. Just excellent food

I was on a walking tour of Chinatown and this is the restaurant we ended the tour at for lunch. I was very impressed by the food and the platters were filled with house lo mein and fried rice, sweet & sour pork chops, beef and broccoli, General Taos Chicken, and sautéed string beans, all of which was very good...

Had the Hot and Sour soup along with Shrimp with Black Bean Sauce. Quite good. Service was fine and not rushed. Will definitely come back. A little pricier than its neighbors, but worth it

We came to Hop Lee visiting New York's China Town for the first time. We looked at many places to eat and we decided to come to Hop Lee to eat. There looked to be a big group event of people all dressed in black. We waited for a long time before meeting an elderly women. She explained to my... More

This small downstairs restaurant was as good of experience as one could expect. Waiters were very attentive, portions were large and food was tasty. Our party of five ordered two meat dishes, fried rice and appetizer. Bill was about $10 each. I'd go back.

I take high school youth to eat here. The manager and staff are gracious and seat our group even though the dining room is small and we are taking space from regulars. I try to go early so to not disrupt. The food is served family style so our tables, always at least 8 people, get a good sample of... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood 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.
