I have been eating at/ordering in from Wok 88 since I moved here almost 4 years ago. The food can be inconsistent, but it is usually very good. I recommend the WonTon soup. It is actual chicken soup and not just water that a chicken was waved through. Other family favorites are Orange Flavored Beef, Shrimp with hot Peppers (peanuts), the Chow Fun, the Pad Thai and the LoMein. The Lo Mein is the most variable, but when it's good it's great and beats all other restaurants in the city combined. When you eat in, you get free wine and soda and they are generous with the refills. When you order in, you can choose a can of soda for each $10 of your order. Enjoy this place!

The food is pretty killer, especially the General Tso, Chicken and Shrimp, and Sesame Tofu. As for veggie lovers, try the steam veggie dumplings, string beans in garlic sauce and if you want to be a bit naughty, those damn chicken wings are soooooo good! For people who posted about the excessive oil, please be realistic here. What chinese restaurant doesn't have their fair share of grease. HOWEVER, what many people aren't aware of is that they can adjust almost every dish upon your request. Less oil, no msg, no salt, change meat, white meat, no spice, little spice, I think we get the point. So don't be afraid to be a little demanding, the staff is very patient and helpful. As for the dine in services, complimentary wine or soda. Waiters are pretty funny, and front desk is attentive for take outs. Overall, chose not to think of this as your local take out joint but a family establishment. The place has been around for over 20 years, they must be doing something right.

I've been coming here for years and lately it's been going down hill fast. The atmosphere is nice, the service is good but the food just isn't as good as it used to be. It's still decent but that's the most I can say about it. Lately I've been disappointed in the quality of the food and I'm looking for a new place.
