There was a steady stream of take-out customers while we were there. I would say that it is just an average chines take-out restaurant (though they have a few tables to dine-in which we did). I ordered the Kung pao chicken. It was LOADED with celery which I don't like, but other than that it was pretty good.

I usually don't mind very average food if it is cheap and served quickly. The food was ok, the most standard Chinese food you can wait. We decided to do a sit-down dinner. I have never waited this long for Chinese food to come out.... It took 30-40 minutes to get a stir fry dish!

Usually have ordered from chinese take out place in the past with much disappointment. However, gave this place a shot and have not stopped going back!!! It is not the fastest take out but every minute worth the wait!! The food is fresh, delicious and with the nice clean open kitchen you get to see whats going on. Not one... More

I work on the local ambulance crew. We've been getting take-out from Oriental Wok for years. As the title of my review says, they are consistently good. It's not a fine dining establishment, it's a quick meal. Always hot, always good. What more can you want from a $6 entree?

This is the only Asian food restaurant we will get General Tsaos from, we have been getting takeout from there for ten years. One combination dinner will feed three people, always good and nice people!

The food here is nothing to write home but it wasn't horrible either. I usually go to Joyce's Noodle House but I think you get a better deal at Oriental Wok. The combo specials are all under 7 bucks where as Joyce's they are almost $9. Don't get me wrong I don;t mind paying for quality but if I want... More

If you like hearing "15 minutes" for about 2 hours, and then get only warm, average food, this is the place for you. No matter how long they tell you the wait will be, it is no less than twice that amount of time. You can only talk to the one person that speaks English there who has no control... More

We always get take-out when visiting Vermont at Oriental Wok; the place is nothing to look at but the food is fresh, hot and delicious. It is always busy and you can eat in the reastaurant too. The owners are running the place and the food is really worth trying - you will go back. They have your basic egg... More

We used this place to order takeout for the kids while we took a cooking class. It was just fine and served the purpose. Only 5 minutes from the Essex.
