Big menu...something for everyone

Tried this place after a recommendation from a coworker. The menu is big with something for everyone. The restaurant is not a big place and certainly nothing fancy, but the food was good. The service was OK.

After a long day of volleyball it was nice to see that this restaurant was still open at 10:30 at night (they seat until 1:30 on Saturdays). We split an order of general tso's chicken and some beef satay. While I wasn't a fan of the over-breading of the chicken, the flavor was delicious. Would definitely go back for more.

Take the light rail to The Village Wok for an informal delicious Chinese meal. Get a mango shake on the side and a beer and watch the campus students enjoy a quick meal too.

Village Wok is very convenient if you are at the University of Minnesota. A nice casual, homey atmosphere and the food is good. We had the Hong Kong style noodles with BBQ pork and wonton - flavorful soup, tasty char siu and wonton, and the roast duck noodles. Village Wok really loads up on the meat and toppings with the...

Love going to this restaurant. We were at a wedding and staying at the Commons Hotel. Village Wok was across the street and open late which was awesome to go there after a long wedding reception. Yummy food, great variety and very affordable. High recommend this place

Placed an order to go for dinner on a Friday night and was told it would be ready in fifteen minutes. Get there in fifteen, not done. Wait another 5-10 minutes. It's fine, I understand a mistake and it's pretty busy. I'm forced to wait in this tiny crowded entryway with others that have been waiting longer, and one annoyed... More

The menu is huge and overwhelming, no idea why it must be so big. I got the Chicken Lo Mein and had enough for three meals. Our service was fast and the food was good. Not the best Chinese on campus, but they are open late and have a convenient location for myself.

I don't know why my family likes this place so much. I can never decide what I want to eat. The menu is way too much and the food isn't that great. Their duck is probably the best and their house chow fun is the best. But still isn't the greatest place. They need to clean up the place, like... More

I wish I would've remembered another reviewer said the plates were enough for 2. At first I thought the prices might be a little high, but once my daughter's plate of Orange Chicken got to the table I realized we could've shared. I had an order of spring rolls that were very good. There were a few large groups when... More
