“Ok Chinese take out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

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 crappy Chinese food, I might as well pay 2 dollars less.

“Horrible wait time, average food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

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 over how long the wait will be. The food here has gone downhill significantly over the past couple years. There are many other Chinese restaurants that are much better than Oriental Wok. You have been warned.

“Best Chinese food going!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

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 rolls, ribs, rice, chicken balls, etc. and it is all good.

“convenient and good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

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.
