Have been there many times for take out and quick lunches, Slow in preparation but from scratch. Fried rice is the best in the area typical of New York restaurants. Excellent value and highly recommend

Great Chinese food for the area. I grew up in NY, and have had my share of good Chinese food. This place reminds me of some of the best NY Chinese food places!

Plan on waiting 20-25 minutes when ordering takeout, but it's worth the wait. The food is very good and very sizeable portions. Have the sesame chicken, it's the best I've had!

Take out from Oriental Wok is routine when I come visit the family here in Vermont. Love the Eggplant with Garlic Sauce and House Lo Mein. House Fried Rice I don't quite get as the rice is not fried but they aren't the first restaurant to prepare it this way,

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!
