We have become regulars and every meal at this restaurant is exceptional. While everything that comes from the kitchen is excellent, they served us one the best fish dishes we have ever had, monkfish tail. Even those of us who generally do not love fish found this dish amazing. The shrimp fritters, duck buns, lobster egg foo young are all exceptional. The room is fun and casual and the service always a pleasure.

Amazing experience. Everything
Amazing experience. Everything we ordered was excellent, especially the shrimp fritters, and the service was perfect. Servers were warm, accommodating, and flexible, which is a rarity in New York. I absolutely recommend Wong's and would go back anytime.

One of the best meals I've
One of the best meals I've had in a long time. The food was creative, extremely flavorful and we will definitely be back. Order several items and share as the ones we tried were delicious and we look forward to trying the rest of the menu! Try the drinks also as they are unusual and tasty!

Our group of four went back
Our group of four went back to Wong for our second visit to try the duck dinner: a multi-course feast employing duck in several different ways (from consomme to roasted breast to duck fat ice cream). It was exceptional. To get it the restaurant requires at least 48 hours notice, as only the head chef and owner Simpson Wong are able to prepare it. The service was somehow even better than the fantastic experience we had during our first visit. Highly recommend this place, and highly recommend the duck dinner.

Delicious food and good service
Brought here by a friend and I was impressed. Ordered most of their signature courses, including the duck buns and lobster foo yung. Both were very good. The Cha Ca La Wong stole the show though-- incredibly fresh tasting, light, and really very powerful. Even the foo yung, which was delicious, seemed somewhat simple and unimpressive by comparison. Dessert was a treat, too, as the duck fat roasted ice cream showed me I have not yet seen everything you can do with ice cream.
Service was great. The waitress was attentive but gave us enough space while offering her opinion on the menu items and engaging in light conversation.
My only real complaint is that the restaurant very quickly became somewhat loud and it was difficult to hear.

Great food and friendly, knowledgea
Great food and friendly, knowledgeable staff. We let our waiter choose what to bring us and each dish was fantastic. Only downside it gets pretty hot and stuffy in the restaurant once it gets busy.

The menu descriptions cannot
The menu descriptions cannot do the creative dishes justice. They are unexpected and delightfully surprising. Fresh ingredients artfully prepared and served, a party for the taste buds. Great neighborhood. Truly a twist on the asian fusion front.

Went there in pouring rain and was totally worth it..duck fat ive cream was unusual but yummy

I arrived very early, due to my stomach still being on West Coast time, and was disappointed the hostess did not offer to seat me earlier, since clearly there was capacity to do so.
Dinner was excellent. Portions served were generous for the main course. I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner, and will go back again, but doubt I will get past ordering the crispy duck entree. (It's so good, that I might find it difficult to try the skate, which also sounded delightful.) Nice that their wine selection offered two different proseccos by the glass.

Out of the ordinary!
Inventive dishes that will leave you very happy at the end of your meal. It's hard to go wrong at Wong and the friendly staff will steer you in the right direction.

Innovative and delicious
Wong succeeds in creating new variations on Asian dishes which are innovative and delicious.

The food was outstanding. Presentation of food was excellent. As an appetizer I tried duck tongue for the first time, just popped it in my mouth and the taste exploded. It was awesome!! My husband had duck buns...shredded duck meat on toasted rolls which were tasty and would order them again. My entree was crispy duck and my husband had lobster egg foo yung. Both were outstanding. To top off the evening we had lychee sorbet a wonderful end to an excellent meal.

Gourmet Healthy Asian Fusion
Simpson Wong is the most thoughtful and innovative chef in NYC! Shrimp in lobster sauce that includes a fresh lobster tail. A "creamy", frothy non-dairy dessert that you would swear was ice cream from Otto but contains flax seed oil and omega-3 fatty acids (the brainstorm of his cardiologist partner). The communal atmosphere is trendy and congenial at the same time. Go as a group of 8 or go alone.

Traditional with hint of modernism
Wong combines fresh ingredients with clever culinary techniques and fusions of tastes to create modern dishes based on traditional recipes from south east Asia, mainly Malaysia. I have been to Wong multiple times and my friends and I have been blown away by the dishes, service and ambience. If you're lucky you might be greeted by the owner himself, a humble and friendly gentleman who knows how to get to the heart of the customers; through the stomach.
I would highly recommend Wong for great dinner. Gotta try the Duck Bun and Typhoon Lobster.

unexpectable great food!
WOW!!! very extraordinary asian food! very tasty ! I came with my girlfriend and we both enjoyed the food .Love it and will be back again!

The deconstructed dumplings and dandelion salad served as really delicious appetizers. Rice noodles, bobo chicken, eggplant and calamari were also devoured and shared among our party of three. Spicy, sweet and just a bit salty -- these dishes hit all the right notes. My friends had creative cocktails, which they really liked. The location was a great meet up place to celebrate a reunion of old friends. We all left stuffed and happy.

Loved Wong! We arrived for a late booking one night, and absolutely loved it! The food is fresh, creative and sensationally tasty. The staff were so lovely and the decor and general ambience was gorgeous. We have recommended to lots of people!

a recent favorite
Wong serves really delicious modern Asian cuisine. Good and sensibly priced wine list. Great daily specials. Try the Lobster Egg Foo Young.

unusual and terrific
I have eaten at Wong's several times and it never disappoints. The place is small and tables and chairs are closely arranged but somehow it makes for a very cool vibe. There is also a bar and counter overlooking the kitchen where I always sit. The food is delicious. The outstanding dishes are anything with duck, the lobster egg foo young, and any speciality. You can't go wrong with any dish. The MUST are the duck buns. If they have the braised dumplings GET it! cocktails are strong so beware but really good. If I crave some different and delicious food this is where I go. Sometimes all the Italian or American or other classic restaurants just get boring so this is where I go.

Imaginative Asian food
Good drinks, good wine, good service, good food. Recommended. Not much more to say.

Great food and cocktails
We arrived just before the end of the Happy Hour and the waitress informed us, so we order cocktails and dim sums.
Then we had an excellent dinner, the food was great and the service perfect.
I recommend this place either for a drink between friends or a dinner.

Ok food, ok service
The menu needs more options, and the typhoon lobster could have been better. The price did not justify the amount we received.
