Ordered on line for the first time at this restaurant...on a Friday night. Gave them the pick up time as one hour after I ordered it....WRONG! When I arrived, they couldn't find my order, then when they did, they had not started it. There was a whole room full of people waiting on food. There is only three people who... More

The food is over saturated in sauce. the vegetables are limp. I do believe they still use MSG. It is a very small buffet and not the cleanness place.

The food is ok, average chinese fare but the selection is so small I was actually amazed. I've never seen such a small selection at a Chinese buffet before.. its almost like a free continental breakfast at hotels. I would still recommend the place because for $5 you can get a lot of food, just not much variety compared to... More

Went there for my daughter's birthday on a Wednesday night a little after 7 p.m. While the selection was limited in comparison to other Chinese buffets, the food quality was some of the best I have had from a Chinese buffet. I have to approximately 15-20 different Chinese buffets up and down the East Coast, and have learned that bigger... More

We were not so keen on this place. The food was much cooler than I would have liked,, and there was no interaction between customers and employees. Gave me the feeling of a factory conveyer belt. Get the customer in, feed them and get them out again.

This is an update from a review I did 9 months ago. When you go out to a Chinese buffet style restaurant for lunch, you hope to get a somewhat restricted selection of well prepared reasonably fresh food. But China Wok fails to deliver on this. They are very much on the losing side of a competition with a newly... More

If inexpensive Chinese food is what you want, this place could be for you. Because of the highly competitive all you can eat oriental food bar business in Saint Albans, the lunch price has been dropped to 4 bucks in June (2012). For the best chance at freshly prepared food, go right at noon.
