Brand new location!

For all the bad reviews I've read about this place, I can't say I agree with a lot of them. First, the food: our experience with that was 1) there were a lot of quality choices, 2) it was kept hot and well replenished, and 3) there was a good mix. The place is new (on Front St.) and was... read more

The sign outside the restaurant advertises the buffet lunch for $8.95. We had the buffet, which was mediocre at best, and when the check came it was for $11.95 each. When we complained, we were told that the $8.95 was for take out only. I took a photo of the sign and that is not what it said. There are... More

We hadn't been there in over a year but we wanted to check out the new location. We went for lunch. The price had risen considerably since our last visit. The quality of the food was the same and there were added choices as well. The decor was a lot nicer and had a more open feeling than the old... More

We tried the Golden Wok at its new location, very disappointing. There is a large amount of food on the buffet but the quality is not good. When the restaurant was at its previous location, it started to go downhill when the ownership changed. Moving to the new location did nothing to enhance the quality. We used to enjoy it... More

New location, so we thought we should give it a try. It looked like nothing had been clean since they moved in. Bar was full of dust. It is a Chinese buffet, with lots of choices. But just not good quality. Very disappointing. Trish was a great waitress ,friendly and very fast.

Food was good. Service from Trish was great. Atmosphere was fine...until the Supervisor started griping out a guy in an orange shirt in Chinese. I don’t know what he was saying because it was chinese...but his voice, facial expressions and mannerism were very ugly and loud. Right behind my table!! If you have an issue to discuss strongly with someone... More

Golden Wok has been a staple for Chinese food in Orillia for years. It has now moved to a bigger more modern location near the lake. It is right on Front St beside the Metro Plaza. Bigger more roomy dining area and large free parking area. Food servings are pretty much the same as in their old location which means... More

Adequate but..... For Orillia - OK. But they really need to improve on the tired and tried menus used in the original place to stay relevant. The buffet at the casino much better choice - if additional 10 minute drive not an issue.

3 of us went to try out the new location and were very impressed. The food was very fresh and hot, replenished quickly (not to mention delicious). The chicken wings are amazing. Our waitress named Trish was very attentive to our needs. The dessert bar is tasty and the ice cream tasted like Kawartha Dairies (may have been) We had... More
