This restaurant used to be good but not anymore. I don't know what happened to this place, but both food and service sucks. Service was never good there but at least the food used to be very good before. We will never go back there.

I ate at Wang's two days ago with several friends. This is not a "Chinese" restaurant, but rather an American version of Asian fusion, which is just fine, but you should know this before you go. For example, they have Pad Thai and other Thai...More
