We went here last night for a quick bite. The egg rolls were yummy and I loved the sweet and sour shrimp and singapore rice noodles. I wasn't too thrilled with their egg flower soup or the fried squid. All in all a nice little place with great service. I tend to stick to the tried and true items and wasn't dissapointed.

Pros: very quick and pretty inexpensive

Cons: can be greasy

this is a little hole in the wall place that my friend introduced me to. i was a little leery at first but when i tasted the food i was really suprised. the food was great and the service was fast. they even have a pick up window in the back for your convenience. and the prices are really cheap too.

Yum yum yum. Love the Kung Pao. Nice service too. Can get crowded at night, the place is small and the decor is nothing to write home about. But the food is so good and it's clean. I also like how they don't serve everything at once.

I like this place and my kids do too. I expected to see the typical warming trays of food when I first went into this place but there weren't any I could see. I chose the typical things my kids and I were familiar with and they had it prepared within 10 minutes. The chicken chow-main is my son's favorite dish from here and the other items were not disappointing at all.

There's a lot of space in the seating area. If you order take-out go to the right just outside the restaurant to the back where the take-out counter is. It's part of the kitchen where you can see the food prepared. It's nice not to trounce through the restaurant with bags of hot food with the "no it's not all for me" look as you do so.

PROS: Food is prepared quickly.
CONS: Parking can get tricky when the stripmall is busy.

Hot Wok Cafe is a sweet little chinese restaurant in foster city. it does offer healthy alternatives to the chinese food and you do not need to load up on the transfatty acids and high-coloesterol food when having a satisfying dinner. I love the sweet and sour soup - it is hot enough but not too spicey to overwhelm the pallete. I also like the sweet and sour chicken - it must be the best in foster city!

i highly recomend this little hole-in-the-wall for lunch or dinner.

If you are hungry and would enjoy a Chinese Combination Lunch, this is the place for you. Joyce serves some of the biggest portions of good Chinese Food that you will ever see. All lunches come with soup, rice, chow mein, a won ton, egg roll and a very large portion of your favorite item. I love this place and would highly recommend the Hot Wok.
