I like their beef noodle in late night. It is very rich in flavor. And the size is generous.<br />

Iron wok is one of the best Chinese restaurants in new England. Their food is pretty authentic. I like their string dish.The service is pretty good too. Jimmy, my waiter was professional and helpful. I would recommend it to my friends.

This is a good place to have Chinese food around PVD. Their food is real. They will do much better if they are in a city with bigger Chinese community. I wish them the best.

Very tasty vegetarian dishes. Eggplant, green cabbage and water spinach were all good. The mapo tofu was the best I had in Rhode Island.

Iron Wok has got the best Chinese food I have in the United States, even better than those restaurants in NYC China Town. You must try that if you are in pvd :p

The food at iron wok is excellent. They carry a few traditional Chinese dishes. It is the best Chinese eatery in pvd.

The Iron Wok has a long history of making great Chinese food in Rhode Island. I used o enjoy the food from the truck and now the restaurant is just great!<br /> <br /> I have never been disappointed and the service is awesome!<br /> <br /> My favorite is the double cooked pork or the Mongolian chicken. Both these are on the lunch special which comes with rice and I get them with the spring rolls.<br /> <br /> AND if you like cucumber ask if they'll make you a cucumber salad! I used to get it from the truck and although it isn't on the menu they still make it for me in the summer!

good food, best Chinese restaurant in Providence!<br /> And the service was wonderful! Made sure to order their special cold cucumber, the eggplant in garlic sauce, mapo tofu and the new veg called Water Spinach!

Had delivery last week. Very nice quality food and prompt service. The string bean was particular good. Will order again.

I heard good words about this place. Dropped by on a Saturday night. It was very crowed with a couple of student parties going on. A lot of Asian faces. That was a good sign of a Chinese restaurant. I asked the waitress about some real Chinese food. She patiently helped me out to get some authentic sichuan food that were not spicy or to the level that we could take. We got lion head meatball, string bean chicken, and house style tofu. They all came out with top notch quality. Now, we really have a good Chinese restaurant in east side.

Almost missed this place next to Brown University when I was heading to Louis Restaurant with my friends for breakfast. I made a mental note to try it out, because Providence is really lacking good Chinese restaurants. <br /> <br /> I'm glad I did, because they had dishes like Chinese Basil Chicken and Double Cooked Pork, all done very well. I usually have to go to Boston Chinatown for food that tastes like this. My friend tried the Ma Po Tofu and it was delicious, though it was prepared differently than he was used to. <br /> <br /> Overall, good service and even better food. I would highly recommend this place!

This is THE best Chinese restaurant in Providence.<br /> We had a party for my friend graduation from Brown.<br /> The food was delicious. The waitress was very friendly. The place was clean. Very nice decor on the 2nd floor. Their string bean, Chinese eggplant, and the soup dumpling are the best around.
