Wang's in the Desert
found throughout Asia and the Pacific.
Our restaurant is warm and inviting! You can dine in our dining room looking at our flowing stream; cuddle in our private Red Room, chill on our outdoor patio, or relax in our spacious lounge. The choice is yours…
Whether dining or relaxing, Wang’s represents California living at its very best.
Food was mediocre at best but the worst part of dinner was the cringey “nightclub” singer who couldn’t sing on key.
Always worth the visit when we are in town. Great food.
Shared several appetizers and entrees. Everything was delicious.
Live music made it challenging to have a conversation at times.
Run away. This restaurant lacks focus. The welcome is warm but the room has not been updated in years. The menu is lackluster because the focus appears to be on entertainment at decibel levels to split the ears. Our drinks were fine but the appetizers were straight from the local deli. We left before any further insult to the senses. Hope someone rights the ship.
We came back after dining here Saturday night and all service people were just as friendly and our food selections still delicious!
Always has what we want when coming through town. One of our favorites and they always are friendly. Food is fantastic and delicious.
Our waiter was Gr8!! Hostess & bus guy very friendly. The gal singer was pretty darn good! The male singer was just starting when we left. But most importantly all our food from appetizers to the side salad, the vegetable platter & our main dishes were delicious. We gobbled all of it up (almost) we did have left over container. We are coming back Monday we eat here twice every year when we come to Palm Springs.
A bit short on service to start, but then better.
We have had numerous meals here over the past three years and have found the food to be good, portions reasonable and prices typical for the desert. This week, with a group of 11, we found the food average at best, portions appeared to have been pared back, and prices about the same I think......several were disappointed.
To be fair, we live in Vancouver with arguably the best Chinese food west of Asia, so the bar is high, but my sense was that the quality and portions size was down....
We had a wonderful time and the food was delicious! Nick, our server, was amazing.
Excellent food with ok service. They had a jazz band playing so it was impossible to hear someone sitting next to you. However, if you like jazz, the band was excellent. The dim sum was a standout.
Amazing Asian cuisine! Tons of tasty vegetarian options!
Such a fun night and the food was great! The entertainment was a great way to spend the dining experience.
Service was a little slow. Waiter didn’t come back and check on us so we couldn’t order a second round of drinks. Busboy however was on top of things. We were sat at the stage, tables should be turned the other way.
Food is always outstanding. We were a few minutes late and the hostess rudely admonished us. Nonetheless, we had a nice meal and Alejandro was a great server.
Had dinner on Valentines night. Everything was great. We hope they don’t close.
The restaurant was closed down when we arrived
Food was not good, we had three dishes and every dish tasted the same. Would never go again!
Excellent food and service. Great happy hour!
Service was excellent. Chicken lettuce wraps were very average with little flavor. Mongolian beef dish was very good and had great flavor - it saved the meal.
Great vibe, nice restaurant with tasty food, but very salty. Unfortunately our server left us for 10 minutes before another one help, we needed to ask for silverware and more cocktails and finally asked twice for our check. The four of us are not coming back.
The food was very good. The servers were working very hard, but they didn’t follow through with things that we asked for and needed: silverware, water, napkins. Even so, we had a nice evening and will return.
Out of 7 people dining, all said food was way too salty.
We made a reservation for 10, when we arrived there was a dance party going on in the bar. MIT was festive and had a good and fun vibe. We ordered drinks and dinner, when dinner was delivered, only 8 meals were delivered. We asked about the remaining meals, they went back to the kitchen, came back with one of the meals but told the last person they didn’t have the ingredients to make the Larb salad. They offered to make another dish but everyone else was eating. She choose to share with us. They did credit some appetizers from the bill.
Second time I make a reservation only to arrive and fund the restaurant is closed for business that night. If you are going to run a restaurant, be open when you say you will be. Highly recommend Rio Azul just up the street. They are open when they say they will be and their food and service are great!
They were closed and rather than reaching out to let us know, they simply posted a note on their door... this was for New Years Day dinner.... thank god Copley’s had room... terrible experience!
Good food, live music, friendly service.
So great!! This place is a Palm Springs treasure.
Christmas Day dinner
In process of new mgmt which led to some issues in kitchen and being able to sit people in a timely manner
Hopefully issues will be resolved soon
Didn’t have one! Made a reservation for Christmas Eve and confirmed it. Showed up to a sign on the door that they were closed! How nice of them to NOT CALL us and let us know. Won’t be bothering with this one again
Have no way of knowing, as we arrived and there was a sign on the door saying that they were closed.
We had Christmas Eve dinner plans and they closed citing gas and electrical issues. Not notice to anyone who had reservations. Ruined a lot of evenings. But, they’ve been sold and are closing soon, so it’s likely they are having staffing issues.
Horrible odor in restaurant which seemed to be coming from restroom area.
Minimal wait staff but the 2 men covering the entire restaurant and bar were outstanding.
Food was delicious.
Great food and service. The live entertainment was ridiculously loud...so loud we nearly left but decided to eat in the bar where a conversation could be carried on.
Our dinner was good, but high priced IMO.
Food was very good but it was a Friday night and we didn't realize it was dance night. Noise level very high. Have been before and heard Jazz singer that was really good, so just need to pick your entertainment night that suits you!
Went to see a singer who was not able to perform due to a sick family member. I made a reservation and got a confirmation and later a reminder about an hour before my arrival time. There was no mention of the entertainment being cancelled. I would have appreciated advance notice.
The service, cocktails and dinner were all excellent.
Lemon Chicken was prepackaged frozen breaded chicken served with shredded ice berg lettuce a lemon slice and a cherry with a bowl of what tasted like packaged lemon sauce. I’ve been before and the food was good, this was unacceptable. Will not be back.
