Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 December 2016

Excellent Chinese food at a great value. Dinner time at Oriental Wok is always very busy and wait times are usually longer than stated. If they say 20 minutes, I don't even leave my house for 20 minutes, then still wait when I get there, but for the quality and the cost it's worth it. A meal for 3 or 4 people from a nearby competitor can be as much as $30 more for the same dishes. Although there are a few tables Oriental Wok is mostly a take out restaurant. Several really good house specialties including Crispy Shrimps (served with an incredibly good tangy sauce) and Dragon and Phoenix combo.

The food is always great. Oriental Wok is a local favorite. Plan ahead if you are ordering on a Thursday night as most of Essex is picking up their favorite dish. Kids love the chicken fingers and General Tso chicken, sweet and crispy...Yum

I've ordered from here a few times and the food is generally pretty good. I was disappointed last time that the chicken in the sweet and sour taste a little old with that refrigerator taste (blech!) but that is the exception not the rule. The teriyaki chicken skewers are the best thing on the menu as far as I'm concerned.
The orders here do tend to take a little longer than they say most of the time ( likely bc they are very busy).

I have always meant to go here and try it out and now that I have I was not disappointed. Whilst it's mainly a takeaway you do have the opportunity to sit down and eat your food there. The food is served in takeaway containers but if you are not looking for anything fancy and are more interested in the price and the food then this is not a bad place to grab some lunch. You can eat part or all of it there and the food tastes pretty good.

Poorest quality Chinese food ever, watery sauces, lack of beef in beef dish, poor spicing very amateurish , will not return!
