Good lunch special deals with huge portions-- usually we have to take some home for later. Fresh ingredients, but not as flavorful as I previously remembered. Still, a good place to go with friendly staff. Family owned.

first time to Bloomington, went here to have dinner. The food was good but I have taste better. They give you a very skinny glass for your soda and than when you get a refill they bring a small tin pitcher.

I have been eating at First Wok for twenty years, and the taste, quality, and value have been very consistent. There are options closer to home, but none that come close to First Wok. In my opinion it is worth the drive. I did takeout recently and ordered Hunan chicken (a little spicy in a good way), Chicken with Vegetables... More

Been going here for years. Fantastic food and for lunch you get a large portion. Nothing fancy for restaurant but the friendliness or quality of food make up for it. We go in and they remember how many usually in our party and remember what we usually order. Terrific customer service, speedy delivery of food and great customer service from... More

Had their sizzling rice soup, one of my favorites. I know of no other place that offers it. Delicious as usual. Also had their PuPu platter. Very nice.

We often go here for lunch. Very quick service, great portions and selection. We have never been disappointed. Sadly, I can only assume they continue the good work into dinner as we have never been there for dinner. In all the times we have gone at lunch time we have found the service prompt, the food very good, and the... More

So disappointed with all the Chinese restaurants in the Eagan area. Cannot find a good one, and we've tried most of them in this area. Finally went to 1st Wok in Bloomington and found good Chinese!! It's a bit of a drive from where I live, but so worth it. Service was excellent, food delicious with good portions.

Before I get into the food, let me just tell you about the family that runs this place...incredibly friendly, they remember my kids names, my name and always know just how I like my food. Now, to the food! I travel a lot and I have tried Hot and Sour soup everywhere and NO ONE, not never, not ever can... More

I ate here with a friend and we both ordered an entrée. Food was great but what were we thinking, ordering 2 entrees? We could have split 1 and had plenty. The food was very good and the service is very friendly. The owner's son waited on us and he had a personality to please. Décor does not exist, but... More

First, you have to know what to pick. Some of the menu items are only OK, while others are great. The hot and sour soup is very good, as are the fried dumplings. One of our favorite dishes is the sesame shrimp, which has a light batter with the sauce served on the side for dipping. This is so much... More
