A word from Wong
Welcome to WONG. As New York's first Asian restaurant to emphasize local and sustainable fare, we pride ourselves in providing delicious and innovative food in a friendly environment.
At WONG we appreciate the art of cooking, technique, and flavor. Chef Simpson Wong’s extensive travels throughout Asia has inspired him to offer Classic Dishes such as the Cha Ca La Vong (or as we call it, the Cha Ca La Wong!) and Lobster Egg Foo Young with such refinement that it will leaving you wanting more! WONG also creates an ever changing Market Specials Menu to emphasize our dedication to a local, seasonal, and sustainable menu.
Our hip/modern/casual dining room consists of several intimate tables, a communal table and the Chef’s Counter which overlooks the kitchen. It is our aim to provide a pleasant dining experience and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.

  • "Awesome food, really cool people- we were a loud group and we stayed well past last call, which they were very accommodating about. Cant say enough good things, definitely going back soon."

  • "Tiny restaurant with a great menu, Wong is an ideal date night spot. Service is excellent and portions are moderately sized, so you can hit up one of the great dessert spots around the corner."

  • "waiters were far too pushy in offering specials (which had some pretty cheesy names: "bed of roses")... not great when you're on a date... spent 140 on dinner for 2 before tip and the waitress treated us as if we ordered a single appetizer on a crowded night (the restaurant was about half full)... I understand the ny restaurant business is difficult, but subpar service is never a good thing... a far step down in quality from when i ate there after they opened a few yrs back.... also called to request my card number a few days before my reservation saying they'd cancel my reservation if i didn't give it to them within ~48 hrs. food was ok."

  • "I wasn't expecting anything special from the recent lukewarm reviews and how easy it was to get a reservation but I was pleasantly surprised by the interesting and delicious food. The lobster egg foo yong was outstanding and my favorite but there wasn't a miss with any of the dishes that we had. I will definitely be going back!"

  • "Menu was inventive but dishes we had while very good (lobster and hake) could have used more flavor. Appetizer shrimp fritters needed more sauce and were too much fritter and not enough shrimp. My main complaint is the ambience -- the restaurant is small but the way the tables were arranged and the lack of tablecloths gave it a coffee shop vibe."

  • "I arrived to an empty restaurant and was grilled about whether I had a reservation, which I did. Although this is always a turn off we were seated promptly. The early bird one dollar dumplings were fantastic. The wine was good. The food was very interesting and tasty. Overall, an interesting interpretation of standard Asian fare with fresh, sustainable ingredients. The early bird dumplings and wine prices kept the tab reasonable. Overall, worth a try for something different."

  • "I have returned several times to Wong and I find the food consistently excellent, the service very helpful and friendly. I was accompanied by a Chinese woman and a Chinese-American woman who suggested family style. The sharing made it even more fun as we sampled each other's delicacies. I will be going back."

  • "We are always looking for good new Asian restaurants and we hoped Wong would be just that. It is okay, but not sufficiently tasty to bring us back. The staff are lovely. The digs are somewhat Spartan (really hard chairs) but bright. The dishes are certainly not the same old same old Chinese, which is good, but the tastes just don't come together. However, we don't like things too spicy and many of the options are just that."

  • "This was my second time at Wong. The first was long ago around the time of the opening. This time around it was much easier to get into. The food was good, but now that the shine has worn off, I think the menu has suffered a little. It's still better than take-out, has delicious cocktails, and it saved us a trip to Chinatown. The lobster egg foo young is steaming bowl of garlic which was great for my sinuses, but some might think it overpowers. The crispy duck breast was bland. I wouldn't order that again, but the dumplings, brussels sprouts, and cocktails did not disappoint."

  • "Simpson Wong, owner of Wong, has created unusual and exceptionally flavorful food - every sauce is melded with unique herbs and spices producing distinctive taste sensations."

  • "We had a great time sitting at the counter facing the kitchen. The staff in & outside the kitchen were great. The sous chef was friendly and enhanced the experience. We had a child w/us and all had great fun! thks!"
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "I am lukewarm about this restaurant. They try and be adventurous with the dishes and I give them credit for a couple of good ideas but I didn't think the service was that outstanding. The dishes are small and a bit pricey for what you pay. Overall, it is fine enough but I wouldn't be dying to go back there anytime soon."

  • "Dinner was not what I had remembered in the past. Everything was just so-so. I can recall my first two vists well and I left feeling very good about my meal. It may have just been that the place was empty, and on a Friday night of Thanksgiving weekend. It made our party of three wonder if we had missed some bad reviews. Something must have happened here and I can't quite figure it out. Wong used to be a very tough reservation to get."

  • "Impeccable service, bright comfortable space and amazing food made this an evening to remember. And at a table for 4 we could actually all hear ourselves talk !"

  • "The menu needs more options, and the typhoon lobster could have been better. The price did not justify the amount we received."
    Dined on 10/17/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "We went on a Tuesday night at 6:30. 2 out of the 5 specials listed are not available. We ordered 5 dishes to try, while every dish includes something fried, 3 of them is fried with sauce on top. (We did not get that from the menu description.) The ingredients are fresh, yes, but to incorporate the same cooking method in so many dishes? And thinking frying makes everything taste good? That's just lame. In the dishes that incorporate a lot of herbs, the herbs are sliced to be thin, but LONG. Lots of LONG pieces of herbs will get tangled with each other, resulting in herb lumps mixed with noodles or accompanying the main protein ingredient. Now I understood the restaurant was not busy because the food is just not very good."

  • "Wong serves really delicious modern Asian cuisine. Good and sensibly priced wine list. Great daily specials. Try the Lobster Egg Foo Young."
    Dined on 8/30/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/31/2013
  • "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. Yummy!"
