Pretty good, pretty pricey.

The food from Golden Wok is usually fresh and hot, and of a decent quality (for all you can eat buffet), but the price can be very high depending on the day you go. Went on a Sunday once and it was $50 for me and my girlfriends dinner. Will never go on Sunday again. But other days..sure.

The food tonight was extremely mediocre and a far cry from what the quality used to be. The price sadly doesn't reflect the quality difference either now priced at a surprising 19.95 a person! I felt ill within minutes of leaving the restaurant and it wasn't from overeating as I barely filled a plate and didn't even bother with dessert.... More

The Golden Wok is a nice place. They recently moved to a bigger place & it is quite nice. Lots more room & parking. The workers are always friendly.

I haven't been in awhile. But wasn't too impressed. For almost a $60.00 dinner could have eaten somewhere a lot better. Wasn't impressed with the new location. I feel like they just want to fill a room. Felt very weird. Wont be going back. The food is great and we always order take out from them. Maybe booths or something... More

totally enjoyed our midday lunch/supper experience. Usually oriental buffets are hot, mushy, lack luster and taste. We didnt know this was a buffet until we walked in and i said to myself...oh no not a chinese buffet. Much to my surprise as i walked by the buffet to my table, everything looked fresh! Even at 2:30pm! There was a cook... More

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... 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.
