Relaxed atmosphere with decent food.

We usually stop here for lunch when in town for business. Laid back atmosphere and the food is decent. I tried the shrimp with walnuts and was very happy with it. Sweet, pineapple sauce and tasty prawns.

It's a great place at downtown of State College if you would like to enjoy a authenticated Chinese spicy food :) BTW, there is a 10% off if you choose to pay by cash.

Service was a little off, but food made up for it. I ordered one of the noodle based soups and requested mustard greens in it. Delicious! Too much food to eat at one time, so I had to ditch much of the noodles. Spiced right and include new vegetables.

As folks should know, the Golden Wok has closed and been replaced by the Sichuan Bistro with a new owner. One reviewer using the old name obviously didn't like the new incarnation, but some web sites praise what some people view as a positive change from the old venue.

I sat down and ate here, and for the money I spent, the portion size was not worth it at all. I could have gone to a Chinese take out place and got 3X the portion for the same price. Also the chicken wasn't cooked all the way through, and too much breading was used, not too impressive at all... More

We went here with a large group. The waiters were excellent and helpful. The food was good at that moment. We left early and went home. I was sick the rest of the night and I told myself that I wouldn't go back.
