Consistantly good food.

I enjoy coming back to this restaurant whenever I return to the area. granted, they do not have the largest buffet I have ever seen, but unlike so many others, the food always seems to be fresh, and not 'steam table dry' like so many other buffet style Chinese restaurants. My glass was always kept... read more

The food was ok, not as good as it used to be though. However, after we paid and were in process of leaving the lady behind the counter came running up to us and in a loud voice said "You owe me money". Evidently they under charged me. Needless to say the entire restaurant turned to look. That was the... More

The only thing this restaurant has going for it is the $5.99 price. The food ranges From so-so to terrible. The restaurant owner/manager is rude to everyone. She spent most of the time during our recent visit humiliating one of her staff. We will not return, and advise others to avoid this restaurant.

China Wok was my favorite place in Spruce Pine for many many years. The original owners were very friendly and operated the best Chinese-American cuisine in the area. For the past several years, its seems that the restaurant is under new ownership/management. Unfortunately, the once consistent quality food and service have diminished.

Based on my experience, this place should be 33 of 33 in Spruce Pine. The food was cold and bland. The floors were dirty. The "server" was rude. I'm really trying to find something good to say about the China Wok, but it's just not there.

I do like the food very much from this restaurant. We take out from here about once every 2 months. Every once in a while we get someone that is OK that takes our order at the front, but it seems to get worse and worse. The last time the girl at the from was the worst I had ever... More

How much does half a dozen pitchers cost? Every time i have been here, the waitresses take your glass from the table to another part of the restaurant to fill it. Yuk! This cant be sanitary. They are also snotty. Foods average at best. Better when they were just a hole in the wall, with no buffet.
