I ordered a chicken dish with noodles. I was shocked to discover that it was so spicy that I couldn't eat it. My mouth and throat were literally on fire! There was nothing on the menu to indicate that the noodle dishes would be spicy. I ordered another chicken dish that the waiter recommended as not spicey. I was very... More

The place is nice, cool environment and not far from downtown. The food was good, but not amazing but we need to take a minute and look at these prices.... Very over priced for what we got, I was shocked when the bill came (we did family style and didnt all look at the menu) I would say if you... More

Overall, I thought the food was average. It's a fun place to be to people watch, but if you're looking for great food then move on.

Great food and an excellent value. I spent happy hour here and enjoyed a delicious margarita along with an assortment of appetizers. Everything was good and the service was friendly and efficient.

Wangs has been an institution in Palm Springs for years. Open to all, it has served as an anchor of the gay community here over the years. It is big, with an attractive enough dining room and a nice patio and bar area. The food is Chinese-like, and it is always ok. But that is about it. If it weren't... More

During a recent visit to PS, a large group of us went to Friday Happy Hour and had a great time. We followed with dinner afterwards - good food, fun time.

We were attending a wedding in Palm Springs. Our hosts were having the rehearsal dinner at Wang's. First, Happy Hour on the patio. Too hot for me, but, I'm a delicate little flower, so I moved into the AC. It's not easy to handle 40 queens from New Orleans at a rehearsal dinner...ESPECIALLY after we'd "enjoyed" Happy Hour! This restaurant... More

Always a fun Friday happy hour with the Palm Springs gay locals - gets really crowded after 6 PM, so the best tip is to get there early, even before the happy hour pricing officially begins, sit at the bar and start being nice to all the bar staff - you can order food from there, and you will not...
