This was not my first visit to Wang's, but my first in a while. We went on Friday night for the very popular happy hour ($3 wine!). We had booked a table through Open Table for dinner after. Our dinner selections were Twice Cooked Pork and Chicken Fried Rice. Not very adventurous, but having eaten here often we have our... More

The food at Wangs was delicious, the happy hour was great, and the servers were friendly. Some might feel the prices were a little on the high end, but the food is so worth it. Definitely reccommend.

A bit on the high side and not very memorable food. Very popular on Friday late afternoons in the bar area.

The restaurant and bar were very busy. The service was broken, the server took some of our orders and then wandered off to help another table. The chicken pad thai was good. This seemed more like a pick up place then a restaurant.

We just happened upon this restaurant as we looked for somewhere to eat in Palm Springs on our last night. Its not in the main tourist part of Palm Springs and doesn't look like much from the outside. However, the chinese food was the tastiest we have had for a long time (if ever) and we live in Manchester, UK... More

Who would think that Chinese restaurants came in rainbow colors? Well, Wangs certainly does. The food may be like the Chinese places that you went to when you were a kid, but the ambiance is certainly NOT! Tres Gay and very fun (gay or observer of the tribe). One important note: on Fridays it is very busy and very noisy.

Found Wangs for Chinese food, it was a gem. Great food in downtown Palm Springs and good service with knowledgeable staff who helped us choose from the delicious menu, with lots to take home! Only thing that was an issue was how loud it was in the restaurant and how the sound carried, think it was because of the high... More

We were at Wang's 3 years ago and loved it so much, we ate there every night on our trip. We heard from friends that they have gone downhill in terms of service and food. We loved our waiter Nicholas, but unfortunately, the food is not the same. Not only has the quality of the food deteriorated, but what happened... More
