The Coachella Valley offers many good Asian restaurants, but Wang's combines great atmosphere with an extensive menu offering a rich variety of tasting experiences.

Happy hour around the bar and outside patio was backed. Had drinks before dinner reservation at 7:30 PM. Excellent Chinese menu in the restaurant.

Maybe we visited on a off night, but after reading reviews of Wang's being highly rated and recommended I thought this was the place for people visiting from out of state to try something new. Arrived later for dinner hour and was greeted nicely at the door. Table was near a small waterway with a cute bridge leading over to... More

Dining at Wang's seated in a serene (there's a bridge over a lengthy soothing water feature) yet lively (the expansive space crowded and the accompanying din of the diners was elevated) is always a treat. They also have a great happy hour in the lively bar up front. Our server took our drink orders and was attentive to us throughout... More

Great drinks and great food. Always have a nice time here. Get the green beans and the Calamari!!! They have a really fun Happy Hour in the bar on the weekends too. Service can be a little spotty depending on how busy they are, but the food is always really good.

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
