“A hidden treasure in Aptos.”

Uncle Kwok's Szechwan Restaurant
Ranked #38 of 74 Restaurants in Aptos
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 8, 2011

We were looking for a Chinese restaurant in the area and found this location on our GPS! It is a store-front restaurant hidden away in a small strip-mall. Not THAT easy to find!
It was worth the trouble.
Inside, we found a near-elegant restaurant with waiters/waitresses in tuxedo-like wear.
The menu - like most Chinese restaurants - was extensive with many choices. (The restaurant is billed as Szechwan) We ordered from the a-la-carte menu and had orange chicken and Mongolian beef. These dishes were served with hot and sour soup, egg rolls and brown rice (if ordered)
Very tasty and much more than we needed!
We look forward to our next trip to the Rio Sands Motel and Uncle Kwok's restaurant.
p.s. I asked the waiter if HE was Uncle Kwok. His reply? "No! No Uncle Kwok here!)

Our fave was closed so we ordered the same or similar items at Kwok and every item was not close to as good. Bland at best. Fried rice was soggy and missing ingredients. Lemon chicken was terrible. Egg Fu yung awful. Not eating there again.

I like Uncle Kwok's because it's a very affordable way to enjoy a nice lunch in a relaxing environment. They have a very nice lunch menu and the meal includes soup, tea, and fried wonton. The food is normally really good and the service is usually good as well. Try the Sesame Chicken it's really great.
