Hot Wok Chinese Food
Ranked #23 of 48 Restaurants in San Anselmo
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The lines here sometimes out the door will tell you you’ve come to the right place. It’s a proven great Chinese take out restaurant.

In the same location for it seems 20 years, it’s gotten even better over the years. Hot Wok is VERY reliable. Fast service. Prices are still very fair, quality is good, and should be considered a cheap eats place.

As Hot Wok is a very small counter with a couple small tables for the customers, their menu is quite limited, so don’t expect your favorite unique Chinese dish. Their kitchen in the rear can quickly prepare other dishes, but still the menu is limited.

Normal sized portions. Immediate service. Their Chinese egg rolls, lemon chicken, and soups are very nice, especially the Won Ton Soup.

The only drawback is they sometimes close a bit early a bit before their 8:30PM closing time. Parking at rush hour even in the large parking lot also can be a challenge, but you can either wait 2 minutes for another car to pull out or park on the side street 40 yards away. Either way you’re a 30 second walk to the door.

Nice place to grab a quick bit to eat or take-out. The food is always fresh and special requests are not a problem either.

We started going here after school when the kids were young for the lemon chicken. Students from Drake High and other places still come by all of the time. The woman at the counter is always smiling. Even after all of these years.

I have been going to the Hot Wok for three years and it is always reliable for a delicious meal to take home. The Lemon Chicken and Orange Chicken are favorites, and I always need to order vegetarian dishes for my husband. The food is clean and fresh and we are always satisfied with whatever we choose to enjoy. The soups are excellent and very generous in size. The Hot Wok is and will always be our go to Chinese take-out establishment!

Always reliable for a fast meal to take home, with a couple of "boxed" options and plenty of other choices. Excellent soups. MSG? maybe, but I don't think so. Been taking food home from here for years, an am always delighted when their menu expands, which it does on occasion.
