This is our go to Chinese restaurant. Great food and great service. Family owned and the staff is the same over the years. It was also my parents favorite restaurant and they have been gone for years. Their prices are fair.

You know a place is good when the owners call people by name when they enter; it shows that with so many choices for Chinese food, there are regulars here.

We learned first-hand why Lucy (we asked her name) greeted so many people - the food and the service.

My family tried a variety of dishes including sweet & sour shrimp, lemon chicken, Mongolian beef, a vegetarian option of eggplant and mixed vegetables, and their signature dish - Golden Wok chicken (a delicious garlic sauce over breaded chicken). The food was not served instantly (the sign of premade "fast food" quality), but it was timely. The service was attentive and friendly as the staff engaged each table with as much banter as they wanted. I also appreciated that they played authentic music instead of American pop music.

When we were done, we all had food to take as the portions are very generous and the prices competitive.

Lucy made new regulars that evening; we will continue to return as the menu has so many more options we want to try.

We found ourselves in an unfamiliar area. A stranger recommended it. We had a really hard time finding it. It was well worth the time it took to locate. The ambience is fantastic. I loved the illusion of privacy. We ordered off the lunch menu and it was very reasonable. The food was delicious and plentiful. My new favorite Chinese restaurant.

Seemed like a good place since it was packed on weeknight. Food was flavorless - it was fast service and the price was okay as well.

We wanted Chinese for lunch. We visited The Golden Wok, they have a great lunch menu,
which includes soup and fried rice.
The food was extremely, fresh, hot, and delicious. Service was attentive and our food was delivered quickly. Check it out.
