I've eaten in this spot in the San Fran valley and it's all the same no matter which one you go to...terriffic! The Shrimp in Lobster sauce is really great, much better that you'd expect in a chain like this. Just wish they'd have an...More

I ordered beef and green beans. Lots of green beans; very little meat. The beans should have been cooked a bit more....the taste was good. My wife ordered the chow mein. She didn't like it, again very little beef; lots of noodles, though.

Given the hype of "Best of the Valley", City Wok was a bit disappointing. The restaurant itself is nothing special, giving the impression of a fast food experience. However, if one rates it without heightened expectations the food is very tasty. Try the vegetable spring...More

Any time we come to the desert, and we are within driving distance, this is a must-stop for us. Each of our 3 entrees had distinctly different seasonings, flavors, and presentations. Always a winner, this is a very nice place to grab some take-out Chinese.

We were skeptical walking in based on mixed reviews, but glad we tried it. The atmosphere is like a take-out place, so don't expect much. Great service, fresh pineapple fried rice with shrimp and curry; and sweet and sour chicken with veggies. Very reasonable for...More

You can eat-in at City Wok but there is not very much atmosphere. The food is very good and the Wonton Soup is superb. We always have at least one meal from City Wok when we are in Palm Desert.

This used to be my favorite Chinese food place, and I love Chinese food. I always get Hot and Sour Soup, Moo Shu Pork, Kung Pao Chicken, and Shrimp in Lobster Sauce. I had guests, and decided to order in. The food was terrible, at...More

Dear Michael, We sincerely apologize for the experience you had with your take out order. Our food. has been, for the past 28 years, made from scratch and to order. Nothing is ever "old and stale". If you'd be kind enough to let me know...More

Love this place. Everytime we're in town we stop by here or a meal. This time was no exception. Great service, and extensive and varied menu with lots of tasty options. Our food was perfect...again. You really should visit this place!

City Wok keeps up the good work, I am glad to report after an absence from the desert of about eight years. The once advanced decor could use an update but each dish is well prepared, fresh, with home made sauces and much healthier feeling...More

Ordered two entrees - vegetable moo shu and garlic shrimp - both were just ok. Nothing special. The spring rolls were disappointing. The accompanying sauces weren’t good either. All in all, a disappointing dinner. Should have listened to the other recent reviews.
