Great tofu in garlic sauce!

My favorite is tofu, broccoli, and eggplant in garlic sauce. The tempura shrimp is wonderful! Service is always excellent - fast and professional.

Had the General Tso's and the chicken pieces were on the dry side and the sauce was very sparsely dripped on top. Usually they mix the chicken in the sauce, but this was not the case here. No reason to return as there are other better Asian restaurants within a few miles - if that.

As anothe rreviewer wrote, something changed in the last few months. This used to be our go to restaurant, The last three times (this was our last time tonight), the food was extremely bland. General Tso's chicken was not spicy at all, and lacked any flavor. Egg roll? Cut that in half and see it is all one veggie- nothing... More

Last couple times it was pretty poor, The very last time made me to say myself no more food from this place. It is to sad, we live very close and that was one of the places we use to eat.

The reason NEW WOK is the best Chinese food around? Fresh ingredients! I've been enjoying New Wok for years and their standards have not slipped. Highly recommended!

The New Wok is one of my favorite restaurants in Newtown. The service is great and the food is fresh and tasty. You can bring your own wine or beer as they don't have a liquor license. Each meal starts with a plate if pickled vegetables. My favorite dish is ginger broccoli and chicken which I get just about every... More

The food here is consistently a cut or two above that of similar Chinese-style restaurants in the quality of the meats and vegetables used and the preparation of the meals. The service is always fantastic and extremely attentive.

The service is very fast and the staff is very friendly. We had the Szechuan Peppercorn Duo of Jumbo prawn & sliced chicken with mixed Asian vegetable sauteed in a spicy Szechuan sauce which was awesome. Tea and pickles are on the house. Very nice touch.
