Wang's in the Desert
WonderfulGreat food and service. Love their seared tuna and their dumplings. Ask for Hugo. He's a gem!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is too loudThe food and service are truly excellent. The martinis are strong and delicious. But don't expect to hear anyone unless they are screaming in your ear. This is not a place to have intimate conversations. The noise level is just too high. We can see the reason...the restaurant has hard surfaces everywhere. Floors are stone, walls are solid without any drapery or fabric. We love this place, but - maybe - the next time we will either order "to go" or make sure we sit at the very back by the wall of mirrors (yes, mirrors...more hard surfaces to keep the noise level far too loud).6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFri Happy Hour & Dinner Always FunThere were six of us for dinner, we had drinks first and as usual Fri Happy Hour was packed. The drinks are great and prices can't be beat. We were seated at the time of our reservation. Everyone's food was very tasty. Green Curry Chicken, Shrimp and Chicken Duet, Honey Pepper Beef, General Tsao (sp) Chicken. We all enjoyed our dinner. Service was a little slower than usual, but nothing to concern us as we were chatting. We will def be back!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good ChineseLoved everything we were served. Very tasty and somewhat different than the usual that you would get in NY5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLoudMy only "complaint" if I had to make one, would be the seriously loud dining room. The food is EXCELLENT, so no cplajnta there. However, we had a large table for 6 and it was nearly impossible to converse with the person directly across from me without yelling, and was also difficult to "chat" with the person next to me without leaning over and speaking directly into their ear. Something could be done about the acoustics. Add some carpeting, or sound panels on a few walls, or ceiling tiles, etc. PLEASE. I want to go back when I visit Palm Springs again, and I will, but will most likely not go with a group larger than 4 again. Even that might prove difficult.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA Bad NightWe eat here a few times per month and were VERY disappointed on this visit. It was a busy holiday weekend, but there were open tables. It appears they were so short staffed. Our server had at least one large party (14 people) plus several smaller tables. He would take our order whether it be drinks, apps or dinner and then be gone for a long while. We'd see him at the large party which was taking a big portion of his time. I did speak with one of the 3 hosts as we were leaving letting him know that they needed to pay attention to service details, especially given we are locals who eat here year round. While he apologized, he said I needed to be aware of how busy they are on holiday weekends...oh they even put us down as a NO SHOW!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious every timeWe come to Wang's every time we come to Palm Springs. The food and service is top knotch. We'll always make Wang's our dinner choice. The chicken pad Thai is delicious and the portion large!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun happy hour, very busyFun happy hour, very busy as usual on Friday night. The food is consistently good. Honey pepper beef is delicious, as is green curry. Service was a little slow this time, not sure if it was server or kitchen. Staff is always friendly and takes good care of us.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food; Great Energy!Wang's does a great job with Americanized Chinese cuisine. The food is always delicious, the staff is always energetic and welcoming. The restaurant decor is attractive contemporary, with an Asian influence. And the room is always bustling and enjoyable energetic!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect every timeThe food is superb and never disappoints. Service is always without flaw. We have eaten here many times and plan on many more5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways love coming to Wang's!We were there for Friday happy hour and dinner. We still wish Fri happy hour went to 8:00 for other friends driving from LA to join us. The Honey Pepper Beef, Green Curry Chicken, Shrimp and Chicken Duet and Kung Pao Chicken were all delicious. I appreciate going somewhere the food is consistently good and staff friendly. We always make Wang's a part of our PS weekend.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulAlways excellent service, food and atmosphere. Unique dishes not found elsewhere.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Wang's for group diningWe love Wang's for group dining and we also enjoy taking our 9 year old daughter out for family dinners. We can all order something we enjoy and share plates. Food quality is consistent and service is solid. We will be back!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite local restaurantOne of my favorite local restaurants. The fact that they donated 50% of their proceeds during Dining Out For Life speaks volumes about their commitment to our community.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an early dinner reservationWe had an early dinner reservation and thus the noise level was very quiet. Usually it can be pretty noisy. As always the food was excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always go to Wang's whenWe always go to Wang's when in PS. The food is always good and service friendly and efficient. We often request favorite servers, this time we didn't. I don't remember his name, but def not up to usual standards. The staff is usually very personable, friendly....maybe our guy was just hving a hard night, but it was if he had no personality. I hate to say anything bad, but want people to know that if they have a bad night here it is def the exeption, go again!. We will be back soon!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDid not recognize Open TableDid not recognize Open Table affiliation.Not very attentive at the hostess desk when you arrive.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you Wang's in the Desert!Thank you Wang's in the Desert! Delicious as always.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery trip to Palm SpringsEvery trip to Palm Springs must include a meal at Wang's. They never disappoint.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been dining consistentlyI've been dining consistently at Wang's since they first opened some years ago. My past reviews have always been exceptional. Unfortunately, they don't live up to that same standard now. While I still enjoy going there, it just isn't the same. The food was always so exceptional and now it is just good. Service has declined somewhat both in the bars and the restaurant. Probably the worst part of the experience is the noise level in the restaurant. The last time I was there six months ago they promised that situation was being dealt with but nothing has been done and the noise is totally over the top. I do want to keep Wang's in my repertoire so I sincerely hope they read and heed.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLorene(sp?) was the hostessLorene(sp?) was the hostess and is now a server. She did a great job. We had Honey Pepper Beef, Chicken/Shrimp Duet, Green Curry Chicken...everything was delicious!
I still wish they would reconsider and keep happy hour until 8 on Friday as it was before so those of us driving from LA for the weekend have time to enjoy! Thanks.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are a family with two teenageWe are a family with two teenage boys. We loved all our choices, one son said it was the best wonton soup, another said best vegetable fried rice ever. The service was fast and professional, quantities plentiful, leftovers were boxed and enjoyed the next day. Everything I would expect from a good quality Chinese restaurant.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't get enough Wang'sThe best Chineese food in PS - the grapefruit lemon drop was delicious.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Wangs!Love Wangs!!
It's a desert staple and never seems to let us down. The food is always consistent and very good!!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMREAL food at WANGS!I am a serious ribeye guy and was VERY impressed with the WANG version.......excellent! The pork chop entree was superb as well!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe hadn't been in Palm SpringsWe hadn't been in Palm Springs in a couple months and we were very happy to be back at Wang's. Happy Hour was busy and fun as always, a chance to see people we haven't seen in awhile and great drinks and drink prices. I'm really not sure why they had a go-go dancer in the bar area at 7:00 p.m.??? Not really that kind of a place. One thing we didn't like was the shift of Happy Hour from 5-8 to 4:30-7:30. We generally make resv for 8:00: coming from LA on Fri can be time consuming and it was always nice to catch HH before dinner. Brendan was very nice and gave us HH prices since it was our first time there after change in hours. The food was delicious! Gerardo was our server and he is always great!! I'm looking forward to this Friday!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is wonderful here. HadFood is wonderful here. Had hoped to sit on the patio, but happy hour is quite rowdy (in a good way) and very crowded so we sat inside. It is a lovely place with stunning food.

Honey Beef, Green Curry Chicken, Chicken & Shrimp Duet, all the dishes were delicious. We are looking forward to April.1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMStarted with the pomegranateStarted with the pomegranate martini, which was delicious! We had the steamed dumplings appetizer which was very tasty. Mongolian beef was really amazingly yummy but the chicken chow mein was just ok. Shrimp fried rice was also very good, with large shrimp instead of the usual teeny tiny pieces many restaurants use. All in all, definitely a place we will return to. The bar was totally packed and looked like fun, but we didn't hang out there at all. Next time!1/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe eat here every time weWe eat here every time we are in PS. Great food and friendly service. The staff remembers you, where you like to sit, what you like to eat. Consistently a nice evening out. Friday happy hour is packed. Sunday happy hour with 1/2 price menu in bar and entertainment is a nice way to wind down the weekend.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentI love their good and service. Ask for Hugo. He's excellent.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly staff, good food,Friendly staff, good food, fun happy hour. Wangs is always on our list of places when we are in PS!1/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother good night at Wangs!Another good night at Wangs! Honey Pepper Beef, Chicken Shrimp Duet, Chicken Curry, all delicious.!12/7/2012 12:00:00 AMWe are always happy with WangsWe are always happy with Wangs food and service. On those rare times something isn't right they fix it. My only comment is that they need to have a better understanding of their frequent diner system and how to use it. There has been a change in the system (we were told) and twice we've had the server come back and tell us there was a problem and they couldn't issue points. We've had to ask for a manager and they do fix it, but the servers should be trained.
Happy hour is always a fun place to meet friends and the half price Sunday bar menu and entertainment is a great way to wind down the weekend.11/30/2012 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food andConsistently good food and service in a fun atmosphere! Fri happy hour is packed, but always a good time.11/23/2012 12:00:00 AMChinese in the desertWho would have thought we could find delicious Chinese in the desert?
