I took my son here because the outside explained that the restaurant was locally acclaimed. All I can say is heaven help the restaurants that lost to this bad eatery. Food was tasteless, overcooked, and under seasoned. I would not go back for free.

Hi Mr. Fox, One of the hardest things we do as restaurant owners is dealing with folks who post negative opinions of their business online. Can't lie. It's really difficult. Especially when you've been open and operating for over 25 years. It doesn't get any easier. That being said, I can't tell you how sorry I am that we didn't... More

We always order the Singapore Rice Noodles, City Wok Shrimp & Spicy Chili String Beans; but we've been happy with anything we've ever ordered. Food is fresh and made to order. We vacation in Marriott timeshare across the street; and always look forward to having at least one meal from City Wok. It's convenient and tasty. Better quality than Panda... More

Pros: ~ Generous portions ~ Fair price ~ Fast order/delivery ~ Piping hot, straight from Wok ~ Fortune cookie not stale Cons: ~ Flavor is lacking, in many areas ~ Parking is a nightmare For many non-Asians - this place more than suffices. For those who has been spoiled with real Chinese food quality and taste - City Wok is... More

Stopped in here after a long road trip. Too tired to cook thought we would do take out but seating was comfortable. Better than Panda Express better than a few others but really? This is not Chinese not even close. Chinese style at best. Not ever going to search out might go back Ina pinch highly unlikely. Waiter was nice... More

Stumbled across this location to meet a friend for lunch. Pleasantly surprised at the delicious food and excellent service. Plenty of food to eat for leftovers.

I stopped here for a quick lunch with a friend and we ordered the Chinese Chicken Salad & the Chin's Spinach Salad. They were both very fresh, delicious, and abundant.

Every time we are in Palm Desert we grab a bite here. Terrific fast Chinese. Always great. Located in the Ralph's fresh Fare Parking lot adjacent tp Morton's Steak House.

This place offers great pricing and fast service. The cook line is fun to watch. The menu is broad and the food of excellent quality. Great deals on wine, too. If you're a desert local, watch for their specials and coupons. Busy and popular place.

What we found most appealing about CIty Wok was first of all the quality of the food. Very fresh with a clean taste to it! Flavorful yet not oily and packed with sodium as is so often the case with Chinese food. Also, the portions are quite generous and pricing is reasonable. And they offer very tasty brown rice.
