Good menu! Great food! Good atmosphere! Great for take out too! Love the Spicy Chili String Beans, Szechuan Eggplant, Won Ton Soup, Edamame. Need to try more menu items next time b/c we always get the same thing!

Always have to stop at City Wok when we are in town. Consistently good food. Had 3 meals and appetizers and all came out delicious and hot.

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.

Great value for money and plenty of food on the plate. Second visit better than first made a while back. Tried the garlic shrimp that according to my friends lasted for days. Make sure your partner has similar!! Busy and popular restaurant

After a very long round of golf and getting in the club house just before the sun went down, we were hot and not looking forward to a formal restaurant experience. One member of our party had heard from a friend that City Wok had an extensive menu and great take-out food so we thought we'd give it a try.... More

We hadn't been to City Wok in a couple of years and I remembered it as having great food and great service. I suggested we go there the other night with another couple before going to a movie. I was very disappointed this time. It was a Saturday evening and the restaurant was quite crowded as we expected. We waited... More

Hi Abbey, Sounds like we really dropped the ball on your recent visit. The Honey BBQ Pork is one of our best and most popular menu items. It should have a little bit of fat marbled in, but nothing that would make it undesirable. The fact you received such slow service, no matter how busy we were, is unacceptable. Please... More

Took a chance on this place and quite happy we did. The food is good. The place always seems very busy. We did take out so can't comment on the in house service. However, the take out order came snappy quick. The portions are good sized. Had wonton soup twice a week from this place (I was really sick for... More
