Super Wok is an extraordinary find. The food is innovative and consistently delicious. Try the pork dumplings in chili oil, fried eggplant pudding, crispy duck, and basil beef. Super Wok has two menus--one Chinese and one American. Ask for both menus and you can explore the full range of offerings. The service is excellent and food preparation is typically fast, even when they are crowded.

One of the four best Sichuan restaurants in this area - China Place in Durham , Gourmet Kingdom in Carrboro, and C & & in Morrisville are the other two. Like so many ethnic restaurants in the Triangle. it is a small place, located in a strip shopping center. There are several other restaurants in this elongated center, and a very good Indian grocery store just above on Maynard.

The Sichuan-style Spicy Noodles (Dan-Dan Noodles) are absolutely like eating strands of lightening, and the meat is richly flavored ground pork, as it should be. This is a good sized appetizer. The Squid In Chili Oil is very good - it is a cold appetizer, and cold squid is not for everyone. But try it, you'll like it.

The Stir-Fried Chicken with 3 Peppers is excellent, and has all the heat you might want, and they will adjust the heat as you request. Most of their hot dishes, are indeed hot, so I would suggest several dishes, with only one at the hot level.

The Mongolian Beef & the Black Pepper Beef are worth note, as is the Kung Pao Chicken - which is prepared as it should be, with just chicken, red peppers, peanuts, and a little sauce. I don't understand why most Chinese restaurants insist on loading this dish with vegetables that do not belong. I digress.

The Fried Fish Cut Like A Squirrel's Tail is an interesting dish, and pretty to look at, but it comes in a sweet & sour sauce, and is definitely not hot. The Whole Fish In Sichuan Sauce is a better choice for a true sichuan style dish.

If heat is what you like, you'll find it here. Service is generally good, kitchen can be a tad slow.

I honestly hesitate to post this review because I'd love to keep this place as a family secret. On the night after Thanksgiving, when most people were at home eating leftovers, we headed for my son's favorite local Chinese place - what a treat !! We arrived at around 8 pm, and immediately stood out as the only non-Asians in the place - always a good indication of the quality of the dining experience. We were not disappointed. The place was crowded, but they put together several tables for our party of 11 within 5 minutes of our arrival. What followed was a gustatory delight - every dish arrived quickly, steaming hot, and our Tsingtao beers were cold and perfectly complimented the spicy dishes. Try the sauteed squid in chili oil, or the hot and sour soup, or the chinese greens, or even the fried chicken wings - you will not be disappointed. Wait staff was friendly and prompt, other families lingered over their meals - no one rushed us to vacate the tables. Too bad I don't live in the Raleigh area, or I would eat here every week.
