This place is really just a take out restaurant. I found the food to be very bland and uninteresting. To their credit, the food is fresh and they have a good customer base so nothing sits long. I've tried it twice and wasn't impressed.

Most of their food is standard Chinese made adequately but their General Gao's chicken is really a stand-out. All take-out. Nice people.

This place is either excellent or awful. It is really hit or miss. On it's good days it can't be beat, on it's bad days you will wish you never came. I am not sure why this is.

When choosing Chinese take out, I am usually at a loss. The last few times have been bad experiences. But this time, the food was delicious and well prepared. While not the most traditional food, it was very good and we will put the Great Wok on the top of our list for Chinese next time.
