  • Well lets just say our waitress needs to learn about food safetly and washing her hands. Watched her cough all over her hands then prepare drinks. Was only offered drinks to half our table. 4 of us left feeling sick.

  • We were hungry and craving Chinese food. We had read reviews on here and thought about trying this place. When we first walked in, we noticed the decor was really outdated, it looked like a diner from the 80s. We were greeted by the server and given a table. One of the waitresses kept on staring our way, it was really uncomfortable. We helped ourselves to the buffet. The food wasn't that great, a cheap knock-off of the Mandarin. The selection was very limited and most of the items were empty and not refilled for a while. Parts of the lettuce were brown which turned me off from the salad. The tempura tasted like they had been sitting there for years. The ice cream scooper was dirty and full of leftover ice cream bits, which the staff neglected to clean. We were really disappointed with this place and would never recommend it to anyone.

  • The Chinese food at this restaurant is truly an intense version of north American Chinese cuisine that lacks flavour and substance. The food was edible but not enjoyable. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone that is looking for a genuinely good Chinese buffet. For a party size of 2 and paying over $30 for a buffet none the less, I would expect great tasting Chinese food with exceptional service.

  • Can't say enough good things about Golden Wok. Hot, fresh food that never disappoints. They even have a salad bar with shrimp and fresh fruit, and great ice cream and sweet treats. It's our go-to place anytime we're in Orillia.

    Dining area is clean and bright and it's obvious this is the locals' favourite!

  • Order: Buffet - Chix wings, green beans, spring rolls, chow mein, beef & broccoli, deep fried mushrooms, onion rings ... try it all!

  • This is the best chinese food buffet in the area. We always go here when we're craving chinese food. I really enjoy the lo mein and the lemon chicken. The restaurant owners are always very kind and efficient.

  • I go to Golden wok when my friends want Chinese food buffet. Royal Oak has the best food off the menu. It was busy when we went so they were a bit slow refilling the food. Much better then Kings Buffet, thank god it closed down.

  • Order: lots of food

  • We've never actually eaten in the restaurant, but for that once or twice a year that we get Chinese food, Golden Wok does the trick. It is definitely Canadian Chinese food and not authentic Chinese, but for what it is, and for what most people think of as Chinese food in Canada, it's good. I've always found them to be quick and the food is hot.

  • Order: Egg rolls, chicken balls, almond soo guy, chow mein

  • We used to go regularly to the Golden Wok but haven't been recently. We like the Hot Sour Soup but we are not sure that it always has been heated to a safe temperature enough temperature, judging from upset stomachs.
    Get there well before closing time to be early enough that there is fresh hot food out.
    Better to order off the menu which is ecxellent.

  • food is always great, if it is not they will make it perfect. Staff are always freindly. one night we came in as the buffet closed last people there so we ordered off the menu food was soo good, the family that owns the resturant was all sitting down to eat, we where encouraged to join them, it made it a better experiance.
