“Authentic great take-out”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

The only chinese restaurant worth bothering with in the area. Try the chicken with eggplant, the shrimp with bok choy, or anything really. They do a great job.

“Very unhappy long term customer”
Reviewed September 14, 2011


One star is for the service not the food. Kingston Wok was my families favorite chinese food in the area. We order dinner from this establishment very frequently. Generally we are ordering for a family of 5(which tends to be pretty pricy), but this night was only for 2. We placed an order for 2 sesame chicken plates and received 2 sweet and sour chicken plates. This was a little upsetting to begin with, but we are understanding people and know that mistakes do happen. out. We called the resturant to tell them the error that was made and was told to come in to pick up the correct order.

We received a call back from the resturants owner just a few moments later saying that they weren't going to give us the 2 sesame chicken orders we had placed. That they would only give us one. She then proceeded to argue that it wasnt her error it was ours. So we stated that it wouldn't make sense for us to order what she had thought because neither of us like it. She proceeded to argue that it wasn't her error, it was ours and she would not be correcting the mistake. She stated that she repeated the order back to us and we had agreed.

I am sure that everyone, including her,understands there is a language barrier(obviously since she got our order wrong). She tried to tell us that she appreciated our business but she would only give one of the 2 mistakes. We made her aware that we order from her resturaunt frequently and she would be losing a customer and she still said she would not be correcting the order.

In other words this owner would rather lose a long term customer that spends a great deal of money at her establishment than admitting that she was wrong and correct the mistake by making us what we wanted in the first place in which prob amounted to about $5.00 of her cost.

True appreciation of being a loyal customer!!!!!

“Great Chinese North of Manhattan”
Reviewed November 17, 2010

It doesn't look like much, however the staff is nice and the the food is great. Try the special soup - you would think your in NYC's best Chinese! Brown rice is available and the delicate wonton pockets are not to be missed! Fresh is obvious at Kingston Wok. They are also happy to please special requests. Our favorite Chinese for the last 10 years since moving to Woodstock!

“Best sushi in the upstate New York here.”
Reviewed October 17, 2009

I don't care what anyone else says -- Christine makes the best sushi I've ever eaten. After having traveled all over the world and eaten sushi for most of my adult life, I don't believe I've ever had sushi as fresh or amazing as this. ANY of her rolls are incredible....anyone I have ever suggested this restaurant to has become a convert for life. Not only is the sushi amazing -- the Thai food -- the lychee martinis -- the Chinese. It is all incredible. But the sushi is something you should never pass up. It's not cheap, but the sushi is out of this world.
