This restaurant is near where I work, and frequented by co- workers. On this day the Food was OK, but a little greasy, and The beef was good but a little to chewy.

Curry was curled, the cashier tried to argue it was floating chicken. I went back to the counter & saw the cook licking the spoon she was stirring someone's food with. I like to keep others bodily fluids out of my food, gross experience.

I looked at Trip Advisor reviews and decided on a Thai place. Unfortunately when I arrived there was a sign in the window apologizing for being closed that day. So I went back to the drawing board and while looking at Chinese restaurants with good reviews I saw that Golden Wok served Thai food even though I found it in... More

We spent three days in Champaine/Urbana for a conference in January. Looking for a good Asian restaurant we came across this small place and decided to try it out. It was good! The only thing I would find fault was that the restaurant itself was not very clean. The bottles of sauces, sugar dispenser, etc. were not wiped off regularly.... More

Golden Wok is the best place to get your fill of Thai food on the U of I Campus. It's cheap and the staples are great. The pad thai and the pad se-ew are filling and hit the spot. It never hurts to try the Thai iced tea as well. Though Golden Wok occupies a pretty small area, it never... More

This is one of the only thai places in the metro that i will eat at. They are always fast and the food is usually good. Sometimes it is bland. Otherwise go!

A good place to go for lunch because of the variety of Chinese and Thai dishes available. The service is great and the amount of food you are served for the price, make it one of the best places to eat. The egg roll that comes with the lunch special is the best in town. Kung Pao Beef always has... More

In Champaign-Urbana, this place has one of the best Pad Kee Mao's in town. Get it slightly spicy and pick beef if you're a carnivore. This is the best dish in this place. The ambience is not great. But it's enough to go and eat there. Definitely would not come here for a special date or something. It's fairly clean... More
