The food at this place is really bad. But the staff is truly horrible. What kind of business lets their employes runs down and spread rumours and gossip about other establishments in our small community. If this is what you think you need to do to get business, you will soon be closing your doors! You have lost my business.... More

This place has a great Friday afternoon Happy Hour, but apart from that, it is very overpriced for drinks and has unhealthy, greasy food. Dishes that would be lightly stir-fried in a good Chinese restaurant are battered and deep-fried---yuk! Never again....

I've been going to Wang's since it opened and always loved the place. Weekend happy hours were phenomenal and their food was excellent and had a unique, wonderful twist on normal Chinese food. I started noticing a negative difference a few years ago. Happy hours still appear to be thriving and enjoyable, but the caliber of service and quality of... More

Haven't been in months since the last time we walked out after waiting for our dinner order for over an hour. Service has improved, but the food is not good. Totally bland. Once there are more than a few dozen people dining, the room is so loud you can't hear each other talk. It will be at least another year... More

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.
