Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having visited Hot Wok many times I have usually been happy with the food. I must say that the hibachi style teriyaki chicken did not impress me. The flavor was dominated by an overuse of sesame oil. Disappointing.

After trying several different items on the menu, I'm impressed with everything. Huge portions, quick and friendly service, and totally following pandemic restrictions. I highly recommend the crab rangoon and chili shrimp. Also, the tofu is fried just how most people like it, not mushy.

I was in the area looking for Chinese foods. I picked this place. I ordered a Kung Pao Chicken Large. The portion was good. However, all the chicken were very small and very few pieces of chicken compared to other Chinese restaurant. The taste was...ok. Base on my experience, I will pick a different Chinese restaurant next tim.More

We landed in Bloomington for the evening on our return trip to Minnesota. Because of CoVid 19 restrictions, our dining options were limited. Fortunately, the manager of our hotel recommended Hot Wok Express and it was excellent! We placed our order online and paid in...advance with credit card. The food was delivered exactly when Hot Wok Express said it would. The portions were generous and hot. My husband ordered the General Tso’s Chicken combo plate that came with a large helping of fried rice, one egg roll and two pieces crab Rangoon. Chicken was plentiful and well spiced. I ordered the Singapore chicken and beef speciality. I think the proteins were cooked with a pound of fresh mushrooms in a moderately spicy hoisin sauce. All was delicious and way more than we could finish for dinner. Guess it will be Chinese food for breakfast! Highly recommend.More

I've been ordering Chinese takeout for a long time in all areas of the US and Hot Wok Express is a hidden little gem - with good prices for decent portions. I'm here on business from NY and thought I'd give them a try. The...H&S soup was one of the best I've ever tasted, really fresh and delicious with perfect amount of heat. Unfortunately, the egg-roll was yucky and after 2 bites, I threw it away. I love chicken with broccoli and should have stipulated brown hunan sauce, but got white garlic sauce instead. Not my favorite, but not bad. The delivery driver was wonderful and handed me a package that had been sitting outside. :) Food came hot and fast. I will try them again soon.More

Made to order Vegetable meals and fried rice. Great value and ready within 10-15 minutes. Prior to changing our preference to Vegan, we had severe of their seafood and chicken entrees. Fresh and quality ingredients. Friendly staff. Several spicy options.

Have been here on numerous occasions and have always been satisfied with the quality and quantity of their food. The dining area is plain but usually clean. Portions are generous and service is good. Prices are reasonable, considering portion size, and food is always fresh.

This has to be the most delicious and flavoursome dish I have had there . By far makes up for the abrupt and borderline rude customer service - constantly dishes up a bowl of amazing taste that has you emptying to bowl!! Yumbo
