“Good Thai food”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Golden Wok is the best place to get your fill of Thai food on the U of I Campus.

It's cheap and the staples are great. The pad thai and the pad se-ew are filling and hit the spot. It never hurts to try the Thai iced tea as well.

Though Golden Wok occupies a pretty small area, it never gets too busy.

“Sufficient”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is one of the only thai places in the metro that i will eat at. They are always fast and the food is usually good. Sometimes it is bland. Otherwise go!

“Once a week for lunch”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

A good place to go for lunch because of the variety of Chinese and Thai dishes available. The service is great and the amount of food you are served for the price, make it one of the best places to eat. The egg roll that comes with the lunch special is the best in town. Kung Pao Beef always has very fresh vegetables and tender beef. The Pad Thai is delicious.

“Get the Pad Kee Maow”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

In Champaign-Urbana, this place has one of the best Pad Kee Mao's in town. Get it slightly spicy and pick beef if you're a carnivore. This is the best dish in this place.

The ambience is not great. But it's enough to go and eat there. Definitely would not come here for a special date or something. It's fairly clean and tidy.

You order and pay in advance; then wait for the food to come out. They give you free water and that's enough for me when I eat Asian food. The portion is decent. Expect to pay around $8 for this dish.

They do offer delivery for a $2 charge.

There is free parking.

Do not eat the Vietnamese Fo noodle soup dishes here.
