want to feel ignored? go to golden wok. Normally great food and so so service but notice a definite decline in customer service. Last visit took 2.5 hrs. Went at lunch, weekday, seated shortly and ignored by our waitress for 40 minutes who then brought tea but no cups and dirty plates. She seemed to have personal issues and we had to beg another waiter to take our order after walking our dim sum order to the kitchen ourself. We tried to order and she would walk away midsentence and it seemed she did not want to particulary wait on us,although she waited on, served, 3 tables after we were seated who all left before we were served.We waited a long time for the manager to come over, was saved by another gracious waiter who took our orders, and the manager said "sorry" and kept pouring tea for us and didn't seem to listen understand that we felt unwelcome and his employees rudeness shook our kids up who were with us. This employee made it very hard to do business with them as she wouldn't take our order, and represented the place in a very bad light and in front of our children.The manager did not care that we were so patient and nice about things.We like good chinese and half the people at the table that day were asian. Judging by her looks toward us and attitude she brought some personal issues and took them out on us. We have been going there for years and won't be going back. Stay far, far away from this place. After we left, we joked that maybe this employee is a family member they have to put up with. Maybe they do,but not this paying customer.
Delicious Dim Sum!. I LOVE Golden Wok! I've been going to Golden Wok since I was a kid and I've never had a bad experience. The food is to die for especially their weekend Dim Sum. There is no other place in San Antonio where you can get delicious fresh made dim sum. I have tried a few places but nothing compares! I always enjoy the atmosphere and the friendly wait staff as well. If you have yet to try Golden Wok I think its about time you try it out.
User review by paramasukha. I highly recommend this restaurant one that's along the lines of P.F. Chang's. Golden Wok serves fresh regional dishes where you can watch the cooks preparing your meal at the center of the restaurant. Definitely not a fast food joint with overly Americanized menu. They serve excellent dim sum at a good price, and it's probably the only place in SA where you can get dim sum! Decor is more modern and clean compared to the Marbach Golden Wok (which does NOT serve dim sum). Good service and ample amount of parking.
Delicious Dim Sum. Golden Wok has the best dim sum in town. i've been to other dim sum chinese restaurants (the ones in houston) and i must say Golden wok tops them all. they have a very contempory decor and the atmosphere is just great. not only do they have great dim sum but also great chinese food (i.e. sesame chicken and chinese broccoli). you should come on the weekend when they have the dim sum carts out so you can choose what you want. one con is that the waiting is pretty long but it is worth the wait!
Awesome looking restaurant. Wow! I am amazed how beautiful the restaurant looks inside. They have a variety of items on the menu and the Dim Sum is something I have not found anywhere else in town. This is probably one of the best Chinese/Asian restaurant in San Antonio. My girlfriend and I dine there at least once a week and the food is just perfect!
Wonderful Chinese Food. Golden Wok is one of the few places in San Antonio that my Chinese friends - myself included- will actually go to on a regular basis. The food is very authentic, and tastes wonderful. I recommend going during the hours when the dim sum carts roll around.
out with the old in with the new. I remember my grandparents taking me to Golden Wok, with the gold tones and dragons back in the day. Now looking at the contemporary look it's still the same place with a new flair. There is no doubt the dim sum rocks!. I recommend the squid and the shrimp dumplings. THey have an extensive menu. Also if you make it there a little too late to eat, their sister company Fire Wok in Huebner Oaks shopping center is open till 10 pm. 7 days a week. They are next to the Bike shop on the AMC Theatre side of the street.
BEST DIM SUM. I've traveled all over the US and Golden Wok's dim sum tops any of the restaurants in Texas and as well as those in SF and NYC. Try their Sin Juk rolls - to die for!
As the only place in town to get dim sum, this Westside Chinese restaurant goes beyond the call of duty..
Golden Wok's interior is stylishly accented with painted bamboo and calligraphic upholstery and houses spacious booths and tables swathed in a warm light. Dim sum (Cantonese for "a bit of heart") is the reason to visit Golden Wok and while the presentation isn't authentic--typically waitresses roll by with carts of mouthwatering morsels from which patrons choose--the unique tastes are undiminished and hold up well in comparison to the great dim sum offerings available in New York and elsewhere.
Dim sum choices include a variety of dumplings (fried and steamed), shrimp balls and semi-sweet pastries. Don't leave without trying the greasy, potato-esque taro root cakes and the sesame balls filled with a sharply sweet bean curd. The dough around the bao dishes is a little dry, but overall the various dim sum dishes are fresh and flavorful.
Best in San Antonio. Let me tell you that you won't be disappointed with the food at Golden Wok! I've lived in SA all my life and this is the best tasting Chinese food around. Dinner prices can be fairly steep, as everything is a la carte, but it's all served family style so you can make a dish stretch. Lunch prices are GREAT though! The only problem you might run into with this place is that they tend to be a little overcrowded and understaffed during the lunch rush. Try them for dinner for great atmosphere and highly attentive waitstaff. Golden Wok has a large variety of dishes, a make-your-own stir fry bar, and dim sum on Sundays...good stuff!
