Been going strong forever. Still better than average.

This place is always crowded. Locals and tourists alike love the fresh wok-cooked food with a wonderful varied menu. Take out is available, and they deliver locally as well. Very reasonable prices. I can recommend it heartily.

This restaurant/take out Chinese food is great. Being from Mew York I was hesitant to eat here. Boy was I happy I did. The food was as good as anything I've had in Chinatown. Well prepared, very presentable and delicious. Fried wontons, dumplings were out of this world. Chicken well cooked and very tasty. Lomein was the best I've ever... More

Had dinner at City Wok with a friend. The service was just OK. The food about the same. We ordered the Hot & Sour Soup for 2. It was not typically tasty with a distinctive taste and flavor that I have known from other far better versions. The chicken moo shu was passable again a C grade served with cold... More

My husband and I stayed in a villa in Palm Desert and needed a quick dinner after a day of touring. City Wok provided a great selection of dishes, rapid service, and excellent food. If we lived in the area City Wok would be our go-to Chinese takeout. The food was delicious and inexpensive particularly for Palm Desert.

Attracts large crowd... interesting to watch things happen by sitting at the bar watching over the kitchen.. brown sauces reduced too much and the flavor is just too intense taking away the lightness of a stir fry

I never give 1 star reviews, but I feel I must speak up. I have been going to City Wok for about 12 years. The food use to be really good. A few years ago, something changed and the food was not as good. I haven't been there in the last 2 years because there are a couple of other... More

My husband and I ate a late lunch (2pm) at this restaurant on December 11, 2015. We did not have a reservation and were seated immediately. I ordered the spring rolls (4) which are egg rolls - at this restaurant the dough is made fresh daily and it is a light dough. These spring rolls are delicious and served with... More
