This trip began when I received a tip about a new location having a grand opening, I was really looking forward but upon my arrival the line was out the door and people who were leaving said they waited 20 minutes. As I did not have that much time I instead turned my attention elsewhere. My eye landed upon the... More

We were in town on a Sunday and looking for something to eat and everything was closed! We drove past the California Wok and decided to stop in. My husband got sweet and sour chicken and I got fried rice. There was enough food for at least four people! The food was fresh and so good! A great place for... More

And... they deliver! I have been ordering delivery from California Wok for years, but never ate inside the restaurant until recently. We were out for a ride in my scooter/side car rig and decided to have a late lunch. Where to go? California Wok! The food is always good, the service is friendly and prompt, and the price is average... More

Have been using this Chinese restaurant for some years now so I thought I should give them a thumbs up. The food is always hot and served fast. All the typical dishes are there and a few house specialties, one of which is a personal favourite, Shrimp with Chef's Special Hot Sauce. Portions are large and prices seem good. Really... More

Had a same day Groupon and the kids wanted Chinese so we gave it a shot. Special house beef was the standout. Tender beef in a peppery sauce with shrooms and onions. Really tasty. Everything else was good but not spectacular. We ate in and the service was quick.

The seafood was really fresh and the shrimp were definitely good. The sauces were a little liter than I prefer but that is most likely because I'm from the east coast.

I have been to Chinese Wok on numerous occasions and the food has always been consistently good. While you can eat the food there this is not a sit down restaurant. You order at the counter and serve yourself your drinks and utensils. For the price I think the food is too expensive. For $13 an entree I should not... More

They have one dish in particular that we really loved. It is their house special beef. It is worth paying a little extra. It is filet minon cut... More

Loved the fact they only took 15 minutes to deliver to the Hilton Orange County. Food was hot, fresh and they actually made it 'extra extra spicy'. ordered the shrimp fried rice and chicken with brocolli. It's not open late though.
