Waiter was nice. However we ordered calamari that we 20.00 and let’s just say it was a very small portion. Also one of the servers would simply throw our food on the table and not pick up our empty plates. We spent 130.00 for two people. Not worth the price.

Valentines dinner with family. All of us had a good time. Nicholas, aka Nicky, did a great job of taking care of all 8 of us. As did the other wait staff.
Thank you

A favorite of ours when in Palm Springs. Love the Walnut Shrimp and panang chicken. Excellent service.Jackie was an outstanding server though the team effort to keep patrons pleased is very noticeable. J.T. behind the Bar was attentive and added to our positive experience.

I don’t know of it changed, or we did but it seemed overpriced for just okay food. Probably won’t return.

The entrees just aren’t that good for $20 each. The ginger beef from the “fire” part of the menu was not remotely spicey. The food relatively bland except for what seemed like msg.

We get a more flavorful and enjoyable meal buying prepared from Trader Joe’s.

On the plus side ambience was great and service spot on.

Fun bar area to wait in, and then the best Chinese food ever! We recommend the walnut shrimp & the lo mein! And the drinks are fantastic.

Food was good, the service was outstanding, the entertainment happening in the bar area was not my cup of tea!

Wangs on Friday night used to be mobbed from 6-9pm. Unfortunately, the last three times we have been there the place has been nearly empty. We walked in at 8:15 and there were only three tables with people. What has happened to this once great place-It’s hard to say. They raised the prices considerably and that may have something to do with it. People that come to Happy hour don’t stay for dinner anymore. My guess is that new ownership will be required to make this place what it once was-a highlight of Palm Springs.

We had some great appetizers for Happy Hour. Live music was fun. A bit hard to have a conversation...we sat out on the patio. But I would definitely go back!

Was more impressed with happy hour menus than with dinner menu. Dined the Sunday prior and food was much better. Dinner portions were not much bigger, the pork PHO soup had a sour meat aftertaste. Loved the service, the ambiance, and the menu is adventurous. Will definitely be back!

Super loud as there was a party with live music next door in their bar. Couldn’t really talk with my guest. Some
of the food was just ok.

The service was terrible, starting with the front check in, they seemed very confused as to what they were to do. The food server was in a big hurry, even tough the dining room seemed quiet. Our reservation was at 6:00 so it was quiet. The food server didn't seem to know what wine was. He was too friendly and not professional at all. We have been to dumps before but this was terrible.

Great food! One of our favorites! Have been going for several years. Gets very noisy after 6:30.

Impossibly noisy because of a dance party in the lobby. We could not hear each other talk. The food was very tasty but a touch expensive.
