“Quiet little getaway”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

An old friend from high school and I got together here for dinner with our husbands and their one year old. The dining room is small, maybe 6 tables, and there were at least a couple people that came to pick up takeout, but we were the only ones eating in that night. My friend picked it from reviews online, not from personal experience, but I think we were all pleased with her choice. The food looked appetizing, and tasted good as well. After dinner, we had plenty of leftovers as well.

“Excellent Chinese and Asian food for delivery!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

There is no doubt about it...the food here surpasses most of the Chinese places around downtown Denver. I get delivery and take out on a weekly basis but there is an option to dine in, too.

It is a small place that cooks up a lot of great, high quality Asian food. Prices are a buck than your average hole in the wall but well worth every cent for their generous portions.

I think the Thai curries are delicious, sacha shrimp is tasty and you can never eat enough of the chicken dumplings. GF likes the tofu and gluten free options and her healthy brown rice.

Wok Uptown has always provided us with a great meal at least once a week. Carry out is super fast an normally ready in 5 to 10 minutes but I always call ahead and save me even more time. Delivery is a luxury to me and I like not having to leave my house. All in all....Wok Uptown provides great food to us hungry people in Denver.

“Great Asian Food and big portions!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We order food from Wok Uptown every single week for at least 8 years now. It has always been freshly prepared and tasty for us. Delivery is a luxury when its cold out but I get carry- out because it is so quick
..5- 10 minutes!

I love the Singapore noodles, Sacha triple delight and Kung Pao shrimp. Bigger shrimp than most places. Crispsy veggies, no MSG. The egg drop soup is really good. Their menu is huge and the chefs are always adding new dishes so we try new items all the time. Our family loves the new Asian noodle bowls and Szechaun green beans with chicken.

Service is friendly and helpful, the staff members are nice. Love the free hot tea while you wait, so refreshing. The free egg rolls are delish. They also give you free almond cookies with dinner! Who else can compare to the Wok?!

“I've tried three times and won't try again”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Don't bother. There are many other very good chinese restaurants in Denver. The ingredients are not fresh, the delivery is very slow and they messed up my order two out of two times.
