Chinese Fast Wok
Posted by Christine on 09/12/2013
I usually judge chinese takeout by the quality of the soup---which is awesome. I order the hot and sour soup regularly and its always good, lots of veggies, no meat. The shrimp rolls are particularly good, too. They use a ton of different vegetables in the veggie dishes---asian mushrooms, bamboo shoots, snow peas, peppers, carrots, broc. Portion size is large, and the lunch special is no different---great value. Delivery is ridiculously fast, nice delivery person. my only complaints are minor--they don't include very many vegetables with some of the meat dishes (Gen. Tso's for example), and the people working the counter and phones are a little prickly. Not a big deal, and way worth it. The restaurant has several seats but zero atmosphere, and sometimes a seedy weirdo or two loitering. Don't eat in.

Daily specials at $6.00 are a great deal. Tried this place for the first time- chicken and rice were really fresh.

I always reference this site to get the phone number and decided I should comment. I have been ordering from this restaurant for many years and the food is consistently good. It's not gourmet, but very tasty, inexpensive and the staff is pleasant.

I totally disagree w/other reviewers negative reviews. For a cheap lunch or dinner, this place serves it's purpose. Not too mention that the old lady behind the counter is an absolute riot! If you want soy sauce, duck sauce, etc., be sure to tell them since she watches those pennies like a hawk. The daily special Chicken & Chinese broccoli or Mustard Greens or Spinach is fresh and clean tasting. I've had it both steamed and sauteed and the chicken has never been rubbery or overly oily. Be sure to ask for some of their hot chili oil. It packs a punch!

I love the food at this place, but the attitude and incompetence of one of the employees behind the counter is always a killer problem. Each time I go here, when they ask me what I would like, I ask for my food, and then if they ask me if I'd like sauce with it, I say yes, AND A KNIFE, but the employee never puts it in. So I end up back at my office with large pieces of food that is uncut. Today was the worst. After he asked me what I wanted, I said "chili oil, hot sauce, and a plastic knife." Did he put any of the 3 in the bag? No. Instead, he closed the bag and I repeated myself by restating all 3. Then he got hot sauce packets and closed the bag. I then said chili oil and plastic knife. He then got the chili oil and closed the bag. I then said AND plastic knife, and he rolled his eyes as if it were my fault for having to repeat myself to him a total of three times. I said "have a good day" (politely) and did I get a "thank you" back? A "you too"? No, instead I got more rolling of the eyes, and a cold shoulder as he turned his back. Rude, rude, RUDE!! I've experienced rude people before, but the rolling of his eyes after I had to repeat myself to him 3 times for him because he wasn't listening (it was not noisy in the place) really irked me. He simply didn't care.

Ummm that wasn't even good ceap greasy Chinese food. No flavor at all I mean where is the MSG??? The General Taos Chicken was fried batter, don't get me wrong I like a little fried batter but give me some taste. And the lo mein was soft and flavorless just like everything else.

I love this place, always order lunch from the restaurant and it is always fast on delivery. The price is amazing, not to mention their diet menu and the weekly special. If there is something I want for that day I can always make my own order and they will accommodate my request. Love the staff, very friendly.
