“A great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

In Thunder Bay for a night, and we didn't want to go for the place with the $16+ buffet, so we checked the yellow pages! It was a shot in the dark, but we hit the bulls eye. Nice little place, reasonable prices, and not skimpy portions. Agree with "digerati" that the noodle bowls (BBQ Pork) are great... so much I had to get a box. Even the leftovers were good! I was too far from the kitchen to distinguish whether they were speaking Cantonese, Mandarin, or Vietnamese, but the food was authentic and excellent. The tall Canadian guy who waited on us was very pleasant and helpful. He even ran across the street to return the ball cap I'd forgotten on the table. Don't let the outside fool you, this is a great place to eat!

“A must to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

family run and operated - their noodle bowl is a meal in itself - never an unpleasant surprise, we enjoy going there when we are in a hurry and never leave hungry

“Great Noodle Bowls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

My wife and I eat at the Golden Wok twice if not more a month. We always return for a noodle bowl, which is the best in Thunder Bay, and among the very best we've had anywhere (Vancouver, Toronto, New York, Seattle).

The service is good, decor was updated in 2012 and has improved, but the food is amazing!

An almost weekly favourite. Fast, tasty, great service, inexpensive - what more could you ask for?

“Not great for Vietnemese”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2011

We had salad rolls (good!) beef pho (not so good) and beef/shrimp vermicilli bowl (ok)

Should have guessed that this wouldn't be a top knotch place for vietnemese food as it has chinese, cantonest & canadian food on the menu too. A resturaunt that serves everthing - will be good at nothing. Mediocre at best. Would recommend 3 mangoes for viet food in Tbay. We won't be returning here.
