The place to go for delcious HEALTHY take out / fast food. – I was shocked by the poor reviews for California Wok. I love this place! It is exceptional healthy fast food /take out. Everything is made to order. The food is not greasy, but still manages to be very flavorful. I love the chicken and steamed broccoli cooked in a light, clear, sweet ginger sauce. I seriously cannot put my fork down when I get this plate. Also the chicken steamed dumplings are amazing. They are simply ground chicken and chopped ginger and while that may seem like a boring appetizer, they are amazing. The chicken and ginger balance each other out perfectly. Portions are HUGE here for the price. I recommend for one person getting a half order of food, even for two perhaps because a full order is really enough for three people. The lunch special is the best value: salad, rice, and entree. But you have to get to California Wok before 4 for this deal. This place is more expensive than regular fast food places, but if you care about your heart and arteries you often have to pay more. This place is a must every time I come to Honolulu. You can?t beat its convenience, price, and portions of this delicious health food. It?s also a much healthier option than any other restaurants, stands, or the food court. I wish they had one of these in California!
It's ok for take out chinese. – I do say they put tooooooooooo much water chesnuts in their dishes.
It must be the cheapest vegetable they can put their hands on.
Good Orange Beef, Sesame Beef, and Garlic Shrimp – We've ordered from them a couple of times, and haven't regret it. Their orange beef and sesame beef are specially good. Their sides (rice, cookie, etc) are also good. They are not the cheapest take-out chinese, but they are worth it.
Did I order water chestnuts? – They mailed us a menu of their food when they had first opened. The pictures looked very good and tempting. We decided to try the food, so I ordered two entrees at California Wok, one was mongolian beef and orange chicken. The mongolian beef tasted horrible and the orange chicken had a hard crust. Over half of each plate consisted of water chestnuts. The flavor was horrible, probably due to the water chestnuts. We ended up throwing away both plates.
