I judge a Chinese food restaurant by how good their hot and sour soup is, and this place has one of, if not the best, hot and sour soups out there! My wife love the pork and green beans, and she could make a meal...out of the fresh crispy “noodles” with their duck sauce! Service is always good and friendly as well!More

Horrible! And I do not say this with ease as I grew up eating at this establishment. Not one thing I have ordered for my family has been good in years. I wait a few months and try again but it fails to deliver. This...time has done me in. There was nothing I needed in my to go bag (sauces fork chop sticks napkins...) everything was burnt and over cooked. My rice was cold. I give up and will not go back.More

This restaurant has been around a number of years and the quality stays up. The food is mostly Cantonese with some Szechuan dishes. There was a good variety and selection. The food is good as is the service. It has typical strip mall decor. I...had mixed vegetables with a side of bean curd mixed in and it was very good. The glass partitions down the center need a good cleaning.More

The best Chinese restaurant I have ever eaten at bar none! On the scale on 1 to 10 with 10 being excellent, First Wok is a 13! There sauces are delightfully wonderful. The service is perfect as are the surroundings. We returned the next evening...to try a different dish on the menu. You will not be disappointed.More

We stopped in the spur of the moment and glad we did. Everything was hot, fresh and tasty. Service was good also. We'll be back again. Pics are Pu Pu platter, shrimp lo mein and rice noodles szechuan style.

We had just arrived in the nearby town of Brogue and a good friend took my wife and me to First Wok. Were were really impressed! My wife had the Chicken with eggplant and she raved over it. I had the diced chicken with cashews...and it was as good as it gets. The service was very timely and they very much strived to please. I tend to like Chinese buffets, but this was just terrific! Well worth the stop.More

I am used to Asian food in the Pacific, having lived in Hawaii most of my life. I tried this restaurant and the cuisine is very close to what I am used to. The staff is very courteous and it is a nice quiet place...to enjoy the company of your guests. We always try the specials and are always pleasantly surprised at how good it is.More

Both times I've ordered here the fried chicken (General Tso's, Tangerine, and Sesame) was ridiculously overcooked. After chewing each piece for minutes you're still left with 60% of the piece being inedible strands of protein. My wife spit it out and my older daughter couldn't...chew it. Not to mention, the breading being super soggy and the vegetable fried rice being dry. The first time I forgave them because I ordered half-an-hour before they closed but last night I gave them advance notice. It wasn't ready when I arrived, which means they took chicken that had been cooking for hours before I ordered and when I got there they put sauce on it and gave it to me even though they had every opportunity to cook it fresh for my order. $30 wasted each time; I won't be spending any more money there.More

As many locals know, First Wok suddenly changed hands several years ago. While the menu was the same, the new team's ability to create the same quality and taste with the tried and true dishes was a long way off from what we had come...to expect. Having stayed away from First Wok for several years, we have been giving them another try recently. The real test would be the Pan Fried Salmon dish and Chef Yeh Deluxe. We are not sure how it happened, but both dishes were prepared as we enjoyed several years ago. We did notice the hostess was the original hostess from when First Wok opened many years ago. It was great to see her again. We will be back.More

I used to go to First Wok about twice a month for dinner and then would also go and pick up take out orders too. The last few times I went to the restraunt I thought the food just wasn't as good as it had...been. Did the place change hands? New cooks? I thought the waitress on each visit was in such a rush that she all but threw the food on the table. My shrimp was not cleaned properly, which really doesn't make me want to return.More
