We were NOT disappointed. The restaurant was clean. We were immediately met by staff who escorted us to our table. The waiter was patient as we reviewed the menu. Our food was served hot and tasteful. Prices were reasonable. This will not be our last...time dining hereMore

So I have been searching for excellent Chinese food near Windham. I read the reviews and had a feeling this would be ok. I ordered take out b/c Covid. We got the Hot and Sour soup, Crab Rangoons, Chicken Fingers, Beef Lo Mein and Mongolian...Beef. The soup was good, the crab rangoons were chewy and not crispy although the filling was good. The chicken fingers were ok. The beef lo mein was our favorite. The Mongolian beef had no flavor. All in all, wasn’t impressed.More

Got an order of Pork fried rice for dinner, it was VERY brown, but had no taste to it at all. Not salty, not meaty, not oniony. No. Flavor. Very dissapointed. A boxed rice would have been better and cheaper. Would not recommend.

We had stopped doing takeout from Chief Wok until they changed owners, but they've made some nice improvements to their menu and food quality. They also offer Japanese selections as well as the traditional Chinese food that's always been a staple. And they've made many...of their dishes healthier, which is great. The food is just not consistently good enough to give 5 stars, but we still go there for takeout and are satisfied.More

Take-out only; although the website prices are lower than actual, the quality is good and portions small, but you need to ask for rice as it doesn't come with the meal. The one thing I didn't like was that all the specialty seafood was breaded...- shrimp, calamari, scallops.More

Our favorite New Years restaurant a Grand China closed so we thought we’d try Chief Wok. We ordered the Houses Chicken Special which was supposed to have pea pods which it did and straw mushrooms all of two. The chicken was battered and fried not...tender white meat. They were little pieces so ended up being tough and dried. Spicy string beans with beef, four small pieces but at least up it was spicy. Pupu platter for two was right on. Shrimp fried rice was ok. Total for 4 items $56. Food was barely warm. I understand it’s New Years and they are busy but the guy who took my order for 5:00 said it probably wouldn’t be ready so come after 5. Well my husband went at 4:30 and it was ready and probably for awhile. Disappointed for our first big order.More

Food was just about average. Chinese restaurants seem to be deserting Salem, NH, so there are not many choices left.

I was a regular customer of Chief Wok for years. Then the owners had a boneheaded idea: let's close for a while, renovate, get rid of the buffet, offer sushi and "deals" for our patrons. I bought into the deal, which was paying a set...amount and then having them deduct my meals (with a 15% discount) from that set amount. All well and good, except I noticed the prices had gone up, and the servings were smaller. Ah! That's not what I expected from this new direction. Plus, when I'd pick up my meals, it was always a hassle getting them to deduct the price from my account, amid a flurry of hands, cards, animated discussions behind the counter, and a general confusion. When my account ran out, I decided no to go back for a while. When I did return, I was surprised to find what appeared to be new ownership. Still, the prices were higher than before, and the food portions smaller. That was the last time I went. Too bad. Chief Wok used to be one of my guilty pleasures in Salem.More

This wonderful Asian restaurant has recently undergone a renovation, redoing the main dining room and bar area and adding an excellent sushi bar area. We stopped in recently and enjoyed some wonderfully prepared and beautifully presented sushi. It is the best we have had anywhere...from their very talented sushi chef. They no longer offer a lunch time buffet but now offer a long list of well priced luncheon specials as well as a variety of bento boxes. They have Chinese specialties for dinner and a Japanese style menu with the sushi offerings. We love the miso soup, crab maki roll, and the shumai appetizer. The have wonderful dinner combo plates, available all day and evening long. If you go to their newly crafted web site, you will learn, as I did, the owners have been there for 30 years. This shows by their commitment to an excellent product and fantastic service. Highly recommended, I hope you will stop when you are in town and desire some super yummy Asian food and/or sushi.More

I can't say enough good things about this place. Friendly waitstaff and the owner Sherri knows how to treat her guests. Recently renovated, they added a sushi bar and their sushi is the best around. Drinks are also the best around! No lite pours in...this place! Best bone-in spare ribs I have ever had!More

They renovated the restaurant and it looks great! It was a bit dated but now it's beautiful. The bar area has been opened up a lot and the best part (in my opinion) is that they have added sushi! They have a sushi chef that...makes it fresh and it's amazing :) I have always loved the chinese food here but now that they serve fresh made sushi I am really REALLY happy! My hubby doesn't care for it so we can both have what we want...More

Haven't been to Chief Wok in a few years, so we decided to take our friend out Satuday night for her Birthday. Was really pleasantly surprised to see the restaurant has done a lot of remodeling and upgrades , looks wonderful. We started out having...drinks and decided to get a bunch of appetizers. I ordered a Pupu platter, which had, wings, spare ribs crab ragoon and shrimp. The food was so delicious . We also ordered some type of pork dumpling, crab sushi and a shrimp dish with scollops , shrimp , broccoli and noodle. Needless to say we had a huge amount of delicious food. We will return here soon!More

Chief Wok has reopened after two month refurbishment. The entrance and reception area look great. The restaurant is completely changed. Lunch buffet is gone and no longer offered. The outdated décor is gone, no more fake flowers. I love the color scheme and clean new...look, but they have way too money tables now. We were seated in the middle of the room and were back to back with all the tables around us, not much room to move. And it was very noisy. I think they took some of the restaurant space for a bigger lounge, which looked very nice and was less noisy than before. They haven't changed the menus, which still offered the lunch buffet. They had all new wait staff who didn't seem to know what they were doing, I guess with the refurbishment they lost their regular staff who found employment elsewhere. But same great food, thankfully.More
