We found ourselves in an unfamiliar area. A stranger recommended it. We had a really hard time finding it. It was well worth the time it took to locate. The ambience is fantastic. I loved the illusion of privacy. We ordered off the lunch menu and it was very reasonable. The food was delicious and plentiful. My new favorite Chinese... More

Seemed like a good place since it was packed on weeknight. Food was flavorless - it was fast service and the price was okay as well.

We wanted Chinese for lunch. We visited The Golden Wok, they have a great lunch menu, which includes soup and fried rice. The food was extremely, fresh, hot, and delicious. Service was attentive and our food was delivered quickly. Check it out.

This restaurant is unassuming from the outside. The interior is welcoming and spotless. We visited on a weekday for lunch. We each tried something from the varied lunch menu. The soup was hot and delicious. I tried the Mongolian Beef, served piping hot with a fresh delicious egg roll and fried rice. A nice touch was an included serving of... More

So many times the sauces at Chinese places make me sick. this one does not (not any of theirs). So it is my new favorite sit down chinese food rest. LOVE the almond (or cashew) chicken). Hubby likes the #1 combo. Also, the egg foo young is quite good. This is a new favorite of ours.

This restaurant has good setting and vibe, was crowded at the time I visited, food was ready fast after order and most importantly the food was not unnecessarily sweet like some other Chinese food in the city, thus it tasted more authentic to me. The staff were quick, helpful to choose the food and friendly. The prices however was higher... More

We love this place. It's our go-to in the colder winter months and is consistently delicious prepared with the freshest of ingredients. Items are made to order, and the kitchen is more than willing to "tweak" things to your liking. The décor is charming and cozy, Service is always very friendly and accommodating. Definitely try out the Singapore rice noodles... More

Were hungry for Chinese food and this was the nearest place with take-out. Ordered chicken and pork dishes with rice and egg rolls. Food was ready promptly. All tasted pretty much the same and rather bland. Needed considerable soy sauce to produce some flavor. Are still looking for a good chinese restaurant in the area.

As we like Chinese food we tried this place and were a little disappointed. The quality of food was fair as was the service and it jus didn't seem to be as clean as we believe a restaurant should be.

We went here based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The restaurant was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and attentive. We had one of the combos, beef & broccoli, sweet & sour pork, white rice and egg roll. The meal was very good. Plenty of free parking in mall parking lot. Would definitely go back!
