Got a HUGE bug in my drink...not a little tiny nothing bug, but a HUGE Japanese beetle! Bartender didn't even blink an eye or even offer me a new drink! Sushi smells so foul that we couldn't eat it and the food (crab ragoons and chicken fingers ) were awful! Will never return. It's a shame.

This was always my go-to Chinese take out place but the last order I had was so terrible I can't ever bring myself to go back. Gray, awful looking chicken that was rubbery and probably microwaved about 2 minutes too long. Mushy almost rotten looking vegetables. It's a shame because they seemed like a family business they took some pride... More

Food works has been around for years. I have been eating there for about 10 years,was always a nice a nice place for good affordable lunches,with generous portions. Now prices are still comparable to all others but the portions have gone down and most of the time the food seems like most was precooked or over cooked.

Kenny and his wife now own Food Works and welcome everyone to the restaurant. They have a nice menu and there is something for everyone. We go there several times a month for lunch or dinner. Qi Yajuan often has the "Seafood Delight" while I enjoy the "General Tso's Chicken, Egg Roll, and Crab Rangoon. The Crab Rangoon is the... More

We ordered a takeout for New Years Eve. We also ordered it the day before for pickup (early before the crowds and chaos) at 5PM. We picked up the order, paid for it and when we got home it was the wrong order. We went back, they supposedly remade the order as we waited. (now 7:15PM) Again left understanding that... More

Took my daughter on a quick mommy daughter date & the food tasted funny, like it was microwaved, I don't normally complain so I just let it go & paid the bill & within an hour my daughter & I were home throwing up. Went back explaining what happened & asking for a full refund of $28. Instead I got... More

Serving mostly take out, but I believe all of their restaurants now have seating, Foodworks is the standard for Chinese food in the Worcester area. Menu is extensive and typical, offering all the usual variations of your favorites. Service is quick, packaging efficent, staff is always friendly and helpful. Food is consistently well prepared, almost always fresh--the only point that... More
