Tracy Speller gave it 4/5 stars and said: "I LOVE Hot Wok Cafe. My family and I have been eating there for many years. The food is great and the service is even better!"
Ann Cerame gave it 4/5 stars and said: "Amazing food at affordable prices. Everything is fresh, service is fast and friendly. This is where I go for comfort food and this restaurant has been recently renovated with a beautiful new decor inside yet the prices are very inexpensive. Enjoy!!!"
Neil K. gave it 5/5 stars and said: "Best Chinese in St. Louis area hands down. My family has been going here for 20 years and now that the owner's son Andrew has taken over (father still there also) there is an updated new look inside and the food is still great.
"They have the Best Sesame Chicken, not real deep fried with sesame seeds sprinkled on, but chicken pieces sautéed in sesame seeds, unreal! Awesome crab Rangoon & sizzling rice soup."
Becca S. gave it 3/5 stars and said: "Got takeout the other night. The restaurant is very pretty - I had to wait for at least five minutes before anyone acknowledged that I was there waiting for my food.
"I got general tso chicken, fried rice, and wonton soup with crab rangoon. The chicken wasn't that impressive. The fried rice was okay. The soup was decent, but the crab rangoon was lacking something and all she gave me for "extra sweet and sour sauce" was packets of "sweet and sour" that tasted like chlorine. Probably won't be back."
