In the past this was great food, I'm sad to say it now ranks among the worst Chinese food I've ever eaten. I'm not picky, critical or hard to please and have never written a bad review anywhere. It was just that bad, Indeed, the take-out was so bad on so many levels I don't know where to begin. The portions were stingy small, and the food by comparison seemed as if it sat on a steam table all day long before it was revived for dinner. The Shrimp Broccoli dish was vegetables over-cooked to the point of limp, the broccoli was mushy, and there were just enough shrimp to be passable. The honey walnut chicken, though an "off menu" request, did not resemble anything like any other presentation of this dish, across several continents. No honey, and large pieces of fried batter with smidges of chicken covered in something resembling orange flavored breakfast roll frosting. Sadly, even the spring rolls were saturated with oil and again, was as if they sat unattended on a steam table all day long. The cost was comparatively high and clearly disconnected from the quality. It saddens me to leave such a negative review, and in fairness I want to add that the Orange Chicken was okay and much like that found in most Chinese restaurants. Our family won't be going back and its sad there is no longer "good" Chinese food in Livingston. <br />

My wife and I had dinner at The Wok on Wednesday evening, March 26, 2014. The clerk at our motel recommended the place and said it had been in business for over a dozen years. We were pleasantly greeted as we came in and immediately seated at a table by the window. The waitress was very considerate and when we asked questions about menu items, she was very knowledgeable. We ordered one serving of the sweet and sour chicken with pork fried rice and split that between the two of us. The portions were very generous and more than the two of us could finish. We were very impressed with the food as it was nice and hot. The breading on the chicken was very light and done to perfection and the chicken inside the breading was all white meat, not just "chicken parts" like you get at many Chinese restaurants. We were also served a nice pot of tea that was very good as well. If we are ever in Livingston, Montana again, we will definitely stop at The Wok for another meal.

You all are crazy.<br />
I can never finish my plate because the portions are so generous. And though that gentleman doesn't speak very good English, he is very sweet if you are sweet to him. And need I say.. IT'S A CHINESE RESTAURANT.... Should he speak espanol, or perhaps french? It's tasty, authentic (more authentic than I would expect in MONTANA).<br />
Anyway, I have always had better luck with them when I sit down in the restaurant to eat. The food is always quick, hot, tasty and there is always A LOT of it.<br />
May I suggest:<br />
sweet and sour chicken<br />
general tzo chicken<br />
pineapple chicken<br />
orange peel chicken<br />
hot and sour soup<br />
cream cheese vegetable wontons<br />
anything vegetarian....<br />
Thank you for your time!

I wonder what is the motive when someone reviews someone else's review. Tis place is crap. There used to be a twin dragon in town that had barely passable food. But they closed and all there is in Livingston is the wok. It sucks big time. So just give up on Chinese food in Livingston. It doesn't exist.

I recently decided to go try this place out and ordered the sesame chicken. It was TERRIBLE. First of all I payed way too much and the portions were very small. The chicken wasn't battered and tasted so gross I'm not even sure it was chicken. The service was bad, I'm not even sure the guy knew how to speak English and they had a 14 year old girl working there who looked like she rarely showered. If you want to waste your money and go home hungry, this is your place to go!

Ever since on of the delivery boys at the twin dragon pissed me off, I have had to settle for the wok. Their portions are not as generous, and there is definitively a difference in the food. Some of the food at the wok are better then their competitor, like the egg flower soup. As well as several other appetizers. the Tzo chicken on the other hand, is normally quite dry,

Melani, another reviewer of The Wok, must've eaten at a different restaurant than I did. I see that her experience of the place was back in 2009, while mine is in 2011. Maybe that explains the vast disparity between our views. But in her review Melani mentions not being able to speak to a manager because the manager didn't speak English. One of the first questions I ask before eating at a new Chinese restaurant is whether or not the owners/cooks are Chinese. I want the real deal, not some ersatz egg foo yong. And when push comes to shove, folks can always eventually get their meaning across. No need to throw out the tired and provincial - and false - "We speak English in America" card. Also, Melani complains about her "missed" dinner not being ready when she arrived back at the restaurant to pick it up TWO HOURS LATER. The Chinese mostly stir-fry their food and so preparation time is a matter of minutes. I wonder (not much) what Melani would've said if the cooks HAD prepared her food two hours ahead of time and then let it sit in a take-out container for 120 minutes. And why didn't she count the containers before leaving the restaurant in the first place? I found the food very good, the staff cordial, the prices reasonable.

Every time my husband and I order from the Wok, our order is messed up in one way or another. Last night was probably our last time. We ordered 2 dinners for take out and when I went to pick it up, I paid with a credit card and took the food home. When I got there, we found that an entire dinner was missing. Not only that, but my husband had already paid for it! So now I have one meal and have been charged double. I called the Wok and asked to speak with an owner or manager, but was told "they don't speak English". I then asked to speak with whoever was in charge. Now I guarantee you that the teenager that I spoke with was most definately not "in charge" of anything. I told her of our missing meal and the double charge and let her know I was on my way back over to take care of both. So now it's the 3rd time either my husband or I have been there in the same day...I get there and guess what?? The food isn't ready! We had placed the original order nearly 2 hours prior. The 2 girls working were not only non-apologetic, but instead explained it away as "they were busy." There was ONE table occupied when I was there. This was the last straw for us. Be forewarned!
