Have been going to have work for decades but have to say I am boycotting until they clean up. Dining room has hanging decorations dripping with dust and the walk to the restroom will tell you exactly how much they value their customers. It stinks like you're in the New York Alley full of restaurant equipment dirt and garbage smell!!... More

We have been dining at the hot wok for over thirty years now. It has always been our favorite place for delicious Chinese food. The restaurant is always clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Generous portions and fair prices. The lunch plate specials are an exceptional value. We've never been disappointed at the Hot Wok Cafe!

What I like in this Chinese restaurant is their fast service, simple food presentation and ambience. Their specialty is Sichuan. You come here, have a table, order your lunch, wait for 5 minutes and then your food is served with a slice of fruit, salad, chips. The price is very affordable, and lots of parking. The place is aging but... More

I live in the neighborhood and eat there at least once a week. Sometimes I have their lunch menu (soup, salad, rice, sliced orange, and entree) and other times I order Chicken soft noodles and cashew chicken and take home and it lasts me for several meals. There is a wide range of choices and all that I have tried... More

Many locals said Hot Wok Cafe (祥福樓) probably is the best Chinese restaurant in Northridge. We visited twice already, not bad. Call it No. 1? Being spoiled by so many good ones in LA, cannot say it is that good. We have tried Chicken & Chitterlings in Pot (三杯雞肥腸, $15), Braised Beef Brisket Fire Pot (五更牛腩, $10), Stewed Pork Balls... More

This is by far the best Chinese food restaurant we have found in the San Fernando Valley where we have lived for thirty something years. It is so consistently perfect that other than one dinner and one lunch eaten at the restaurant, we can count at least twenty meals we have ordered for delivery within the last five years alone...

There was a group of five of us, and we'd made reservations and got seated promptly, despite it being Saturday, and that the restaurant was very busy. It's a "store front", near a Von's grocery store, but surprisingly large, and always good. I've dined here many times, but this is my first review. Very comfortable seating and upscale decor. Neither... More

Our favorite Chinese Restaurant and there are a lot of them near our home. The number of Asians who dine there are a sign of how good it is. Large portions. Good value lunches - $4.25 for a full lunch including soup and fortune cookie. My favorite is Shrimp in Edible Basket.
