Lets all say it together... Panda Express for an 1/8 of the cost. Wangs does host an awesome Friday afternoon/early evening happy hour, which brings the locals in and the tourist traffic is oblivious. If your looking for an Asian haunt, lean towards Thai Smile, especially their lunch specials.

Besides its outstanding Friday gay happy hour, Wang's has great food and good service in a time-trippy atmosphere. It can get very busy during the season, so reservations are recommended.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. We were a group of 6, we ordered a number of appetizers and individual entrees. Everything was very well prepared and had a great taste. Wanted to go back before I left town but wasn't able too, will do so next time in town.

We're big fans of Wang's.. Usually... Lately I'm concerned about a trend that is threatening to alienate the lifeblood of many Palm Springs bars/restaurants - the locals. Tonight we were informed that water would now be served at $3/bottle - no more complimentary ice water with your order. Jason, one of the best & attentive servers was doing 3/4 of... More

On Sunday nights, you can order a ‘half plate’ in the bar only. Happy hour prices are available all night long on Sunday’s and I find the ‘half plate’ portion is sufficient. My favorite dish is the green curry chicken, which isn’t on the regular menu.

There are ample positive reviews for Wang's and our friends who took us had liked it in the past. But all four of us got dishes that were at the "never come back" level. No need to give much detail other than to say that noodles were mush and the curry had no taste. The waiter disappeared after taking our... More

We've been coming to Wang's for quite a few years now. Often for special occasions, other times with friends. Each time we've come for a birthday, I've made a reservation on Open Table with a note about the birthday. Prior to this year, they've always made a point to wish my partner a happy birthday and bring dessert at the... More

Wang's has a good selection of veggie options and helpful staff who can point out recommendations depending on your dietary restrictions. The atmosphere is fun and eccentric. It is located a bit south of the main strip of bars and restaurants, but it is worth the extra distance. My only regret is that I didn't get a chance to see... More

Always love visiting Wang's when in PS - the appy platters are amazing for late night sharing and the dusted dessert wonton's are the perfect treat after dins or the morning after (thanks to take out!). Whether at the bar or in the restaurant, you'll be sure to have a memorable time! And the artwork is just as delish!
