City Wok was recommended by a friend who lives locally. They have a huge menu to choose from. Prices were a bit more premium, however the food was quite tasty, and worth it. I would recommend City Wok to someone looking for good Chinese take-out.

Hard to find a decent Chinese restaurant in the Coachella Valley. Asked many people and they suggested City Wok. Our first visit, food very good, service good and prices very reasonable. Will be returning soon.

Thank you so much for your appreciation of the work we do at City Wok. Next time you're in, be sure to try the Honey Bbq Pork. It's a personal favorite. Take care. Stuart Davis

The food was excellent and in very large quantity. One of the best wonton soups anywhere. Our server was fast (as was the food) and very helpful.

Hi. Thank you so much for visiting City Wok and sharing your experience online. We pride ourselves on a tasty product and you're absolutely right about the Won Ton Soup. It's a big favorite and one of our most popular menu items. Take care.

I was optimistic going to City Wok after seeing pictures of the food, but should have known better. Restaurant seemed like a large take out area. Soup full of corn starch and unpleasantly thick. Husbands sauce the same and excessively salty. Will not return.More
