Don't let the outside chase you away, it's a dumpy strip mall. Service was prompt, pleasant. Food was very good, portions are large. Attentive wait staff. Nice surprise for this area.

As the title states - Best Chinese in town. They don't mind changing up a dish to suit your tastes(leaving out certain things or adding). So glad the Chi family opened their restaurant in Lincoln!

I'm so glad this tastes exactly like the original First Wok. I love the Mongolian triple....my hubster is a sweat n sour chicken guy. I have yet to eat anything bad....sometimes you need patience but it's worth the wait.

By chance found this place, and it was wonderful. The staff was friendly and attentive, the food was delicious and prepared quickly, and price was reasonable. Barbecue beef had great flavor, and fried rice very good

Went there with my mother in law. Good food, I had the Bon Bon Chicken, she had the Sweet and Sour Chicken. Both were good, water glasses never got empty, the tea was a pleasant surprise. Would go there again.
