“Dear God”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Just had the misfortune of having Happy Wok's sweet & sour chicken "special" for lunch. By far and away the most disgusting Chinese food that has ever passed my lips. The meal was basically some large chicken McNuggets, a Styrofoam container of insipid, day-glow orange sauce, some rancid fried rice and a hard, dry spring role which resembled something that had passed through my cat. Even the food court at the nearby East Towne Mall has better Chinese food than this slop. Go anywhere but here, please!

“Quick cafiteria stype chinese.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

You get what you pay for............this is not a high end oriental restaurant, but if you go in knowing that you should have no complaints. The food is good and plentiful. Really, all it lacks is atmosphere, but it is a fine value, especially if you are alone and in a hurry. I have no complaints at all, it's just not where you would meet someone to socialise.

“Nice comfortable place to sit down with the family and enjoy some amarican-chineese food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011 via mobile

It's alittle out of the way but worth knowing where it is. The restraint is big and they have a huge TV useuly playing movies on HBO. The food is also pretty good, I love the general chicken or the Mongolian Beef, Beef broccoli is also delicious. I'm useuly walking out with extras that I finish in the morning. Overall try it! Oh yeah the crab Rangoons are amazing!

“Happy Wok makes me Happy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2011

I work in American Parkway and vist Happy Wok about once every couple of weeks. The food is good for Chinese fast food and they are usually quick. Clean bathrooms which is an anomaly for Chinese restaurants. Overally - pretty good - I get the mao po tofu or the chicken and chinese veggies or teh mongolian beef.

“It is the tried and true Chinese fast food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2009

It may be fast food, but it is good. You will have leftovers for later (alot). They give big portions. More bang for the buck. But still keep in mind it is fast food...
