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.

I had the Mongolian Beef. The beef was like shoe leather, couldn't even chew through it. My husband had the Garlic Pork which was SLIGHTLY better. The worst thing was that the restaurant was FILTHY. The restrooms were cleaner than the restaurant :-( And don't dare touch the table tops (sticky), the booth seats had food particles all over. They... More

Hi Monika, There can be no comment more important to us than to be told our restaurant is not clean. We take the cleanliness issue very seriously. Apparently, the table you were seated at was not cleaned properly and you have our sincere apology for this. We will of course reinforce with our staff the importance of this again at... More

We visited City Wok because of it's name, we are huge South Park fans. We ordered way too much Chinese food for two but finished it all because it was so good. One of the best Chinese meals I have had at a great price!

We always stop at the City Wok for lunch or dinner when we are in Palm Desert. And we always have the same thing - 1/2 order of lemon chicken and 1/2 order of City Wok beef. It was good, as always, efficient and friendly service, and at a good price. And the iced tea is so good.....

This restaurant had been recommended to us so thought we would give it a try. Ordered food online and picked it up. They were just finishing the order when we got there so everything was nice and hot, which was great. The food had very little flavour, very little sauce to go with the different dishes. I do not think... More

Hi Tranur, Yes, we do serve a hot, fresh, made to order product every time. However, your comment about your food lacking flavor is of great concern to us. This is something we take very seriously and want to address it immediately. It would be of great help if you could let us know what you ordered. Additionally, I'm hoping... More
