I used to eat here all the time. The Chinese and Korean dishes were the best in the neighborhood. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the quality has diminished greatly. Today I decided to try it again (with the snow, it was convenient). I ordered...the sesame tofu. The tofu was tough, and there was only 1 piece of broccoli. The flavor was lacking as well. I don't think I will go back again.More

My wife & I were visiting some friends in Chicago. They asked what type of food I wanted for lunch, Chinese I said. We came here for lunch & enjoyed it so much we came back for dinner. For lunch I had the shrimp with...lobster sauce ($15) & wonton soup. The soup was so delicious, filled with wontons. The shrimp w/ la was filled with a ton of good size shrimp, it was very good. I am used to a white sauce but it was in a brown sauce but excellent. For dinner, I was still full from lunch so I had edamame ($5) & the pork spare ribs ($9). They were both great. The ribs were 3 huge meaty ribs. Our server, Giovanni was so good at lunch that we requested him for dinner. He was excellent. The menu is extensive with both Chinese & Japanese selections. Great day, 2 excellent meals.More

We have loved eating at Little Wok for a while and always found the food and service very good. However, this time, we ordered in and found the food very disappointing. The egg rolls were just okay (and not enough sweet sauce or mustard), the...chicken rice soup was just bland mushy rice with chicken dumped on top, the seafood baked rice was relatively tasteless, and the chicken and vegetables were just okay. We will never order in from this restaurant again.More

Sunday evening decided to try Little Wok and it was better than expected. We arrived at 7 and the girl at the front Claudia greeted us promptly with a smile and seated us. We had drinks and ordered from the Chinese side of the menu...and everything was perfect. Our server Max was exceptional. Would definitely go back!More

This is one of our favorite Asian restaurants. The menu is vast and offers something for everyone. (Sushi fans will love it. I like the baked rice dishes.). It’s not a big restaurant, but we never have to wait long. The service is generally quite...good, and you’ll leave with leftovers to enjoy another night or two.More

We like Little Wok because it’s not your typical Chinese restaurant. The menu is varied and unusual. And there are lots of interesting choices to make. I like their baked rice dishes (served in a log at your table, which also makes it fun). I’ve...brought friends here who also loved it. I will keep coming back.More

I really like this place. The menu has a ton to offer in Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian, and other types of Asian Fare. We often eat there or order in for delivery. I love the Baked Rice Bowls and scallion pancakes and egg rolls. Definitely worth...a visit.More

This restaurant has a very nice selection of Asian dishes. The ingredients are quite fresh, and the sauces are delicate and delicious. The service is great, and the presentation of many dishes are unusual - like my favorite baked rice dish is served in a...log. The restaurant has a very nice ambience. The only downside is that you have to find street parking.More

From the simple outside I did not expect much inside. I was wrong. It is nicely set up inside for dining and socializing. The menu had several things that I like listed. I am a big curry fan. I usually like red curry. They had...a yellow curry on the menu and I tried it with chicken. It was delicious, a good portion and very nicely priced. My waiter, Julian, was very patient and helpful. It was a stellar visit and I got to read my book too.More

We go to Little Wok about twice per month. We walk by a lot of other sushi and Chinese places to get here. Sometimes we order delivery. The sushi is very good, and the Chinese food is very good. We always get seated right by...the window at the entrance for some reason. Good people watching. Sometimes we both get sushi, sometimes she gets sushi and I get Chinese food. The best part is that you can order from either menu and we mix and match appetizers, no need to stick to one culture. Yum, and not as pricey as other similar places.More

This is one of my favorite Asian restaurants. The food is delicious and fresh and often creative - I get a baked rice dish that is served out of a hollow log. There is plenty to choose from, servers are quite eager to please, the...premises are comfortable and clean, and prices are comparable with similar restaurants. Yum!More

This restaurant has a very diverse menu, and the food is fresh and delicious. My favorite dish was a baked rice dish served in a log with a stew of seafood on top - it tasted way better than my description. The restaurant is attractive,...the servers are quite anxious to please, and prices are reasonable. I can't wait to go back and try new dishes.More

We were in Chicago for the weekend and headed to a comedy club down the street from Little Wok. We needed a quick dinner and boy were we happy we chose this place. There were four of us and we had two different sushi rolls...and two main dishes to share (there was plenty to go around as the portion sizes were large). The Chicken Pad Thai was my favorite. Everything we order came out fast and tasted fresh and amazing. Zack was our server and he did a wonderful job keeping our drinks full and ensuring we were well taken care of. I would definitely go back.More
