We were thrilled to discover this popular neighborhood restaurant after it was highly recommended by the resort concierge and it didn't disappoint. Popular, busy, yet friendly attentive service.

Dear Sarah, Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. We wake up every day hoping to get this type of response to our food and service. As an aside, the six servers that work most of the shifts, have been with us over a...More

Don't usually write reviews, but we were in the desert recently for a family reunion. Looking for a family-friendly, nice but casual restaurant, the locals suggested City Wok. Leary of finding a good Chinese restaurant in the desert, we were shocked at the quality of...More

it's hard enough to find good Chinese in the desert, so we're open to trying it all. I can say without hesitation that this is literally the worst Chinese food experience I've ever had (including airports and shopping malls). We came here on a recommendation...More

Dear Tina, It is evident, that your friend suggested City Wok because over the course of our 24 years in Palm Desert we've served a fresh, tasty, made from scratch, product consistently. Your scathing opinion of our restaurant concerns us greatly. We will of course...More

I ordered beef and green beans. Lots of green beans; very little meat. The beans should have been cooked a bit more....the taste was good. My wife ordered the chow mein. She didn't like it, again very little beef; lots of noodles, though.

Given the hype of "Best of the Valley", City Wok was a bit disappointing. The restaurant itself is nothing special, giving the impression of a fast food experience. However, if one rates it without heightened expectations the food is very tasty. Try the vegetable spring...More

Any time we come to the desert, and we are within driving distance, this is a must-stop for us. Each of our 3 entrees had distinctly different seasonings, flavors, and presentations. Always a winner, this is a very nice place to grab some take-out Chinese.

We were skeptical walking in based on mixed reviews, but glad we tried it. The atmosphere is like a take-out place, so don't expect much. Great service, fresh pineapple fried rice with shrimp and curry; and sweet and sour chicken with veggies. Very reasonable for...More

You can eat-in at City Wok but there is not very much atmosphere. The food is very good and the Wonton Soup is superb. We always have at least one meal from City Wok when we are in Palm Desert.
