I always thought Mr. Wonton was the worst tasting Chinese place in Sunnyside…. I’m a fan of Golden Wok personally.


wow someone found a way to blame mayor when the local roach house had roaches, come on, have you ever seen how they prepare food in these places? It’s disgusting.

1) Hot food item not held at or above 140º F.2

99% of pizzeria’s are guilty of this.

Its a cheap ploy by Bloomie to f$$k us for our money since he GIVES AWAY hundreds of millions in “Tax Breaks” to his buddies.

BTW…”Tax Breaks” means they pay NO TAXES.



Well this explains the intensive cleaning efforts I saw underway there the past couple of mornings.


Really Rick? Golden Wok has great chinese food compared to the rest of the junk in Sunnyside

People need to learn to accept the fact that most restaurants aren’t going to be spotless. Just cause there’s an A rating hanging on the door doesn’t mean they’re not breaking laws currently


awww, I love their scallion pancakes. I never received protein tag-alongs thankfully!

Well, there’s *1* less silent electric scooter zooming on our sidewalks. Hopefully, the Golden Wok is next!
