I have been many times had great service but a long wait. This time I went on New Years Eve had reservations got right in but our chef didn't do anything fun with our kids. The waitress never got our drinks we had to go flag our waitress down anytime we need anything. My son had a kids meal and... More

The first time we went to this place with our 6 yr old, she really enjoyed the show - the food was so-so. The next time we went there we were very disappointed with the service. We asked for a Teppan Yaki dish we ordered to be cancelled and the waiter assured us it was and brought us other stuff.... More

A basically good, nothing-to-write-home-about Chinese restaurant. I am not the biggest fan of their sushi, however.

Had takeout from the Flaming Wok during our stay in Charlottesville and the food was really good! Extensive menu and the choices we had were not greasy and were prepared well.

We've settled on the FW as our Chinese take-out of choice. The kitchen is super fast so you can stop in on the way home, order & be back out the door in 10 minutes or so with some tasty food.

I probably wouldn't come here too often except that the kids like it for birthday parties. But even they were disappointed after our last visit. With six of us having a reservation for Teppanyaki, we had to wait 45 minutes for our chef to show up. I politely asked our surly waitress what was up, and she ignored me and... More

We have never ordered off the regular menu and sat at a regular table. We prefer the Teppanyaki Grill Table. After a tasty soup and salad, the chef arrives with your meal ingredients and the show begins. He chops and slices veggies and meat with a flourish, clanging and tossing and catching knives and spatulas, creating a blast of flame,... More

This is a standard Chinese restaurant -- nothing innovative. But I find that they do good versions of most of the classic Chinese dishes. My parents, who are food snobs, actually like this place too. Some other reviewers recommend the food that they cook "live" in front of you -- the teppanyaki grill. I disagree. If you want a show,... More

This is a place where you can order food they cook on the table in front of you. My kids request it as their birthday dinner every year. The food is excellent!
