Excellent Chinese food at a great value. Dinner time at Oriental Wok is always very busy and wait times are usually longer than stated. If they say 20 minutes, I don't even leave my house for 20 minutes, then still wait when I get there, but for the quality and the cost it's worth it. A meal for 3 or... More

I've ordered from here a few times and the food is generally pretty good. I was disappointed last time that the chicken in the sweet and sour taste a little old with that refrigerator taste (blech!) but that is the exception not the rule. The teriyaki chicken skewers are the best thing on the menu as far as I'm concerned.... More

I have always meant to go here and try it out and now that I have I was not disappointed. Whilst it's mainly a takeaway you do have the opportunity to sit down and eat your food there. The food is served in takeaway containers but if you are not looking for anything fancy and are more interested in the... More

We have eaten at Chinese Restaurants literally all over the world: Paris, France; Dachau, Germany; Fatima, Portugal; and more, plus any number around the USA. In a nut-shell, we were disappointed by the Essex Junction Oriental Wok. We did not order ahead, so it was no great surprise that there was a long wait for our take-out order to be... More

Have been there many times for take out and quick lunches, Slow in preparation but from scratch. Fried rice is the best in the area typical of New York restaurants. Excellent value and highly recommend

Great Chinese food for the area. I grew up in NY, and have had my share of good Chinese food. This place reminds me of some of the best NY Chinese food places!
