Diner Reviews
  • "Menu has changed a bit with some nice new additions. Really enjoyed the food. Always comfortable and enjoyable at Wangs."
    Dined on 8/30/2014
  • "Just Mediocre........................................................................"
    Dined on 8/30/2014
  • "Have always liked Wangs, but the noise level makes it very hard to have a conversation. Will have to go on a night when it's less busy in the bar which provides a lot of NOISE"
    Dined on 8/29/2014
  • "For a fun entertaining evening, Wang's is the place. Good food, great service and a lively atmosphere"
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "The restaurant was closed! They neglected to update their hours on opentable. Major oversight! My party of 5 showed up for brunch on Sunday to a closed restaurant and had to scramble to find a new location!"
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "Food didn't taste fresh. All was very average. Portion sizes ridiculously huge."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Since they raised the prices and didn't improve the quality of the food no one goes here anymore. It used to be a staple of the neighborhood. Friday nights the bar is still packed but the restaurant was 1/2 empty on a Saturday night. You used to have to wait 30 minutes if you had no reservation. Raising each entree $5.00 or $6.00 but not giving any more than before was a bad idea!"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Wangs is just a great place to gather , visit with friends and have a great meal"
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "wonderful restaurants! Have eaten here many times. Enjoyed every meal."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "The food and service were great, but the noise level was unbearable! One of the noisest restaurants I've ever been to! I just don't enjoy dining out in such a noisy atmosphere, wish the place was more relaxing. It would make dining much more pleasurable."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Maybe the hottest bar scene outside a club in the desert. Food is good, better than in many other Chinese places. Unfortunately, the ambience is almost horrible - a flat grey box with blue neon. Cool taken the wrong way. With the noise level of an aircraft carrier during scramble. Next to our table sat a small buddha (grey, you should have guessed) at a whimsical canal whose water might raise a hygiene inspector's eyebrows. But in a crowd, having fun, you might even find the parking garage charm funny."

  • "Start with some Dim Sum fun and finish with any of the wide variety of entrees' and you won't be disappointed."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "The noise was unbearable. The bar was overly full and a live singer plus recordings - all piped into the dining room - ruined our dinner. The food was wonderful. We live in PS and love Wangs. BUT OMG THE PRICES! If they keep raising the prices soon we will have to cross it off our list. Mid 20's is high for Chinese food - maybe that's why the bar was full but the restaurant half empty.?????"

  • "GREAT.....................................................................................................as always...."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Check out Gennine Jackson on Sundays in the patio! She's is an amazing singer and wonderful person! Wang's food is great chinese in the dessert, plus the bar scene is fun. Overall Wang's is a great place to go!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Waiter a bit cold, but the food was very good. Bar noise way too loud for quite dining."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Always good food here - better than any chain - irritating that the hostess set us on a high trsvel area if the restaurant when there were other options - nite to self - demand a better table next time - we had a reservation and they weren't that busy"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We had Levy as our server again which always makes dinner a good experience. Green curry chicken, shrimp and chicken duet, Szechuan beef, all delicious. We had a slight snag at the bar, but the managers are great and make everything right."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "My friend from NY said it's the best Chinese he's had east of the Hudson!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We've been coming to Wang's for quite a few years. Often for special occasions, other times with friends. I always make a reservation on OpenTable with a note about the birthday. Prior to this year, they've always made a point to wish my partner a happy birthday & bring dessert at the end of the meal. This year, no recognition at all. The server was horrible from beginning to end. We had him before & he is awkward, unfriendly & shouldn't be in food service. He wouldn't look our way when he was nearby. The prices have gone way up & they're changing recipes that were fine to begin with. I spoke to the manager on our way out & his total lack of empathy/concern for making the dinner special for the b-day girl was upsetting. We won't be back."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Wangs remains our favorite chinese restaurant in the desert. The bar scene, especially friday nights, for happy hour is crowded and exciting. The restaurant is somewhat noisy on fridays, but the service and food remain very good."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "the chinese food at Wang's was very decent. Thanks for seating us so promptly and for the fun time"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Levy is always friendly and makes the evening enjoyable. The special Szcechan Beef is delicious, all the dishes aer consistently good. Friday Happy Hour is always busy and fun. A good way to kick off the weekend in PS."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "I found the restaurant looking very dated. The interior really needs to be freshened up. The food was good but not great and the prices were very high. I went during happy hour time and the bar area was very crowded because of the low price for drinks. There are many chinese restaurants in the area with great food at lower prices. This restaurant needs some serious updating."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Great dining experience. We were seated when we arrived, no waiting. Food and service was exceptional. The only draw back to the entire experience was the noise level, which of course cannot be avoided when there's a full house."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Its been a long time since we've been here but as usual, the food is great. Just looking at the foods, I think I can make it better at home. I'm a good cook and by looking, I can make it better."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "The meal was awesome! The flavors in each dish was perfect, and I would recommend the dim sum appetizer.......to die for!!! Cocktails were excellent. Every visit is great and so consistant in service andv quality."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food was quite good but the service was just awful. Can't say this was true for the whole restaurant perhaps we got a bad waiter on a bad night. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The noise level is high, probably depending upon where you are sitting. It's difficult to have a conversation without being loud, which means you also hear the conversations near you. However, the food and drinks are great and more than makes up for it."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Like many restaurants these days, the noise level is super high which I don't care for. Don't like having to yell at my dinner companions to be understood. The food was a mixed bag. My Pad Thai noodles were great, the ribs were not so good. Portion size was good. Service was a bit slow even though the restaurant wasn't super busy."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Our food was not as good as previous nights. The saving grace is your fabulous entertainment.It made up for a sub par dining experience. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We have eaten here numerous times and everything was spot on. Not sure what happened on this evening but they were not busy as it was getting late but the food was completely different. Nothing really had any taste and the fried rice was the best part so that should say something. Will give them one more shot but nothing beyond that. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Good food and fun friendly service. Wang's is always fun for happy hour and dinner."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food is excellent, as is the atmosphere. It was unusually hot in the restaurant, however, as the air seemed to be off or ineffective on a very warm evening. You had to ask for refills all evening as nobody checked on our table or monitored our beverage glasses. I provided balanced feedback to the host upon leaving, noting the excellent food but poor service. I was only offered an excuse of "it's a new person working," rather than a simple apology. "
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "The food in the service of always been great. We keep coming back."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "I seem to remember the food being better than it was this time around. Our portions were small compared to what was being served at tables nearby. Calamari presentation very poor. It was a Monday night, but the food should have been better."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Excellent choice of appetizers and entrées. Best service in town. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Friends have been inviting us to Wangs for years and we have always declined because we thought it was a wing joint. Great cocktails, interesting and diverse menu. We will definitely return. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The food is always tasty, the kitchen can be slow when busy. Levy always provides friendly, efficient service."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Buzzing on the patio, great food but no chance of a conversation without having to raise your voice."
