Great Chinese Takeout

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

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

Not the greatest Chinese food by any means. Too much garlic and the giant chunks of tofu were cold. Would not return.

Based on reviews and recommendation of friends we went for dinner. We each had a different dish and both dishes tasted like someone forgot seasoning. Service was good and we were promptly seated. Will not return.

Hi CE, I'm very sorry to hear that you were disatisfied with your meal at City Wok recently. Obviously, we're in the business (for the past 25 years) of serving food that's fresh, tasty and that appeals to most everyone. We apologize for not delivering that to you on this occasion. It would be very much appreciated if you could... More
