The bikes being illegal doesn’t excuse slashing their tires, which is also illegal. I don’t think you understand how the law works. You don’t get to take it into your own hands and two “illegals” doesn’t make a “legal”.

Eat at your own risk!
Chinese restaurants shop food market dumpsters.
I have pictures to prove it.

Melissa–they understand. They just pretend not to. The ebikes will continue. If they come to close to me I will be sure to slash their tires. What are they gonna do, call the cops? The bikes are illegal in the first place

Mr. Wonton on Queens Blvd. between 44th St. & 45th St. has very good food, as far as Chinese food places go.

i hate roaches, especially in restaurants

Ariba Ariba also had a “C” but the placard wasn’t in the window….now there’s a grade pending at the door. do your homework folks before ordering…just glad seamless is going to start listing the letter grades!

They’ll be back in business next week just like the coffee shop. Will be like wheel of fortune. They’ll buy an “A.”


Anybody eating “chinese food” is playing russian roulette with their stomachs. ALL chinese food places are vile. In fact.. A key sign that Sunnyside hasn’t come up to a hipsters dream neighborhood is that it has wayyyy too many chinese food places. They all suck,, all of them. why would you order that garbage ?


yup! damn near almost hit my two dogs scooting around the sidewalk returning from a delivery…wrong person to mess with. I marched right into their shop rabid mad and screamed my head off at driver, cashier and anyone else that would listen right in front of their customers. they still don’t listen, understand or seem to care about the potential danger of their reckless behavior. Serves them well


Darn it. I love their egg rolls and chicken chow mein. Have been eating it for years. Wonton soup is the best.

Agree: The delivery guys have to shape up and stop riding on the sidewalks.

Golden wok deliveries have been a danger to pedestrians both on and off the sidewalks. They coast downhill on the sidewalk to 43 avenue to avoid going around the block. They travel the wrong way frequently acting like a bicycle instead of a motor scooter instigating many near misses with people stepping out after checking the direction of leagal traffic. It is obvious this establishment has no concern for its customers health or their neighbors safety.


That’s bad news, it was the best chinese food in the area, in between 1996-2007 when i used to live in the States.


I ordered food from them once in the mid 2000’s, found roach parts, they refused to give me a refund. That menu went into recycling. filthy establishment.


Oh yikes, and Golden Wok is one of the best Chinese take outs in the area. Imagine what the bad ones are like!

Naughtius Maximus, I lol’d 🙂

This is not the first time the health dept has shut them down… I stopped ordering from here around a year ago. China Garden seems to be the better option.


I just threw up in my mouth a bit. It’s my go-to in the ‘hood for Chinese. Back to China Garden.


Seems like the skillman side of the blvd is catching the D from
The health department lol. I would love for them to come inspect some restaurants on my side of the blvd….the real side!!

Capt karma

That’s what’cha get as yer comeuppance for doing 25 mph on our sidewalks on yer souped up mopeds for years.
