“Upscale Chinese cuisine in a very nice restaurant, family owners always present.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Best meal ever! Always reliable and consistent. The only Chinese restaurant I've ever been at where you can tell a very skilled Chef is running the kitchen. Try the scallops! Same ones that they serve at the James Beard Kitchen! Ultra fresh and delicious... Perfectly prepared. Try the specials. This evening it was a variety of fresh mushrooms perfectly prepared. Two in our party had the mushrooms with scallops. Amazing meal!!! We've never had a meal here that wasn't outstanding. Beyond "good food"... Delicious food! One of my absolute favorite places anywhere.

“Fresh Fresh Fresh and Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I wish they were closer, only a 35 minute drive, but if they were a 10 minute drive I would eat there weekly. THe food is so fresh, great flavors, perfectely cooked. Best egg rolls ever, period,
Best orange beef, great sweet and sour, Fried rice is perfect. Do not second guess your choice, as I took two friends who are sooo pickey, and was waiting for the complaints to come. In fact no complaints and we went back the next week. Service, atmosphere, and food are great.
In fact heading that way tonight. Friends had some sort of cheese filled egg roll and they said it was out awesome. Preperations are so suprisingly cooked perfect. Do yourself a favor and eat here. It is in a condo type building but do not let that keep you away. You will thank me later.
Great noodles also and the Egg Fu Young is also supurb. Nice wines also, only Chinese I had that was better is Tommy Toys in San Francisco. This deserves the 5 star rating.

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We found Oriental Wok by pure chance (traveling through Cincinnati, browsing Yelp because we were hungry). We were so glad we stopped!

The Wong family is so, so, so nice. We just stopped to order takeout and ended up chatting with 3 generations of the Wongs. We had a great time. Also, the food was delicious and authentic. Since we've only been once I have only tried the beef ho fun noodles and lap cheung/gailan, chow mein fried noodles, and gao choi dumplings were all very good. The hot and sour soup, egg drop soup, and vegetable noodle soup were also great! We will definitely go again if we are ever in Cincinnati.

“Wonderful Dining Experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2011

My wife and I spent the week in Cincinnati for the tennis tournament and we dined at The Oriental Wok three evenings. The food is fantastic, the service was wonderful and Suzanne and Keith were attentive and engaging. We will return on any occasion we are in Cincinnati.
