Went here for lunch with coworkers and was impressed by the value lunch menu. I ordered chicken teriyaki and double rice was substituted since I do not enjoy egg rolls. For under $10 with a beverage this is my new favorite Chinese food when in town. Also, I asked the waitress there and she stated that if you request that... More

Went for lunch today -- not crowded at all, which isn't a good sign. Service was prompt. The hot and sour soup was adequate. The entree, yo-sheng scallops were ok, but the veggies included were not the same as the menu description. The egg roll was incredibly greasy. The family has a small boy, about two I guess, who is...

We ate at Wongs on Sunday for the dim sum. We arrived at 10:45, & ordered 12 plates of dim sum. Dim sum was served within 15 minutes which is reasonable as it's cooked as ordered.

I visited this restaurant based on a review in Cityview, it did not disappoint. The lunch entree came with a choice of soup, wonton or eggroll and a nice chinese donut to start. This is a family run restaurant so don't expect frills. The service was very pleasant and attentive. The food was much better than your average run of... More

My fiancé and I went here for Saturday lunch around 1:30. They were pretty busy and we waited for a table to be cleared as all tables were dirty or occupied. We thought dim sum was only on Sundays but it was also Saturday lunch time (we know for next time)! We ordered an order of vegetable egg rolls, order... More

During a resent trip to Des Moines , Iowa. I asked a young lady at a Gas Station about finding a Good Chinese Restaurant. She advised me about two places in Johnson, Iowa off Hubbell Street. We found one of the places closed and Chopsticks was the other. It is located in a small strip Mall and after driving past... More

Our family of five visited Wong's Chopsticks restaurant tonight for a Chinese dinner. We have not tried it for Dim Sum yet, which was our goal, but we went for dinner on a Sunday night. On the plus side, it is a family restaurant, so there were two women and two men who all seemed related helping at the tables.... More

We go there once a week. The food is great and service is fast. Try the fried rice or happy family. Price is great and I can be in and out in 45 minutes.

We have gone here a few times and the food is decent. However the service has been very poor. We came in during a weekday a little after 1 thinking it wouldn't be busy. Walked in to a quarter full restaurant however every table was full of dirty dishes. It looked like the tables had never been cleaned since the... More

The food is always hot and fresh. They serve you family style so that each of us can order a different entree and share. You also get a big bowl of unlimited white steamed rice. We had Kung Pao Chicken, Orange Chicken and Yu Shiang Brocolli. All was good. Average meal was under $9.00.
