“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Can't understand the previous excited reviews. Didn't find anything special in this restaurant.
Stopped there on the way from 1000 islands to ottawa because of the good reviews here, and was disappointed.
First of all - the fact that they have different warnings and restrictions written in their menu about sharing, about ability to change dishes, about number of orders and about prices being subject to change without notice - makes you feel it's not a classy restaurant but 'cheap' (not in the sense of the price).
A respectable chinese restaurant also serves you tea as part of the dinner. They don't.
Service was also mediocre. We had trouble communicating with the waitress (although eventually we did manage to understand eachother). By the way, there were tourists from Austria sitting at a table next to us, and we heard how they couldn't explain to her they are not from Australia...
We were 4 adults. We ordered the combination plate for 2 + 2 soups, and it's good we did so, as the dishes are big and we were barely able to finish them.
The wonton soups were very good. Egg roll wasn't tasty at all. We loved the Ribs (and finished them quickly). We also liked the Sweet & Sour Chicken Balls. Pork Chow Mein was OK.
'Desert' consisted of just fortune cookies.
All in all - not a bad experience, but not something special - it's just an ordinary chinese restaurant.

“The best chinese food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

This restaurant is well worth a trip across the river and dealing with customs! Their plum sauce is soooo good, I could eat it with a spoon! I have never been disappointed by a meal here, and we are always treated very well! My faves are the pineapple chicken balls and the mushroom chicken soo guy...mmmmmmm.......

“Best Chinese Food Around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

I've tried different Chinese restaurants in many different cities and Wok House is the best. Prices are good, inside is decorated appropriately and the owner George is very sweet.

Favourites: Sweet & Sour Chicken Balls, General Tao Chicken, Egg Rolls.

“Homemade food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

Most of the menu here is homemade on site. Owner George Jin is one of the nicer people you can meet. I recommnd his General Tow. Best anywhere. Keep up the good work.
