I used to live in the Highland Park neighborhood and would eat here all the time. I love Chinese food and this is one of the best places around the Twin Cities. Reasonably priced and a pretty good buffet. I typically do not like buffets because food tends to be under- or overcooked but they do a decent job. Very friendly with good service.

Cleveland Wok offers an excellent (tasty that is) buffet for lunch and dinner that is quite affordable. If you're busy, you can get a to-go box and pay by the pound! Lunch is cheaper than dinner, but the same buffet, so it's better to go early. Not the healthiest food in the world, but quite delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful!

The food here is pretty good, not necessarily the most authentic Chinese, but good. The lunch buffet for $5 is a favorite amongst local students. The restaurant is clean and the service is good.

Great Chinese food. The restaurant is cute and clean with comfortable booths and plenty of tables. They have a really great lunch and dinner buffet daily. A good selection of items to choose from. They don't skimp on the meat in their entrees. I've been to a few chinese restaurants where you are lucky to find a few pieces of meat in lets say, your chicken chow mein. The staff is very friendly.

The Cleveland Wok has a GREAT asian food buffet. Get this...you can buy a to-go box for the buffet for only .50 more than eating in the restaurant! This is a great option on the weekends especially, because the restaurant is tiny and tends to be busy (well - duh! because it has delicious food!)

The buffet has a good variety & is always fresh.

PROS: Buffet To Go
CONS:

I cannot disagree more to those that don't like the place. First of all, the food on the buffet is fresh. They bring out dishes every 5 minutes. Very flavorful as well. The buffet line is always busy - which means something is going right

I just ate 1/3 of the most disgusting Chinese food I've ever had. Ever. The fried rice was so heavy with oil, I could feel it as I scooped it out. The spring rolls were as oily, and on top of that, the wrap dough was grainy and crumbly.

This place is good. It used to be a lot better... but it's still tasty. Lunch buffet is really cheap ($5.50 a person until 2pm). Egg rolls are thick and deep fried. Fried rice is nothing to boast about. Lo Mein is almost frozen food quality...

but the honey mustard chicken is awesome! And the sesame chicken isn't too bad either. They always have sauteed green beans and deep fried bananas. Usually have some pretty tasty other entrees as well and their sweet and sour sauce is good.

All right...so, if you are into really hot and spicy food, you might want to try a Thai restaurant and do the pepper thing until you can't feel your mouth anymore. But for those of you looking for a nice Chinese buffet that offers the basics and has some lovely shrimp and egg foo-yung, this gem of a buffet might be just what you're looking for. No, it doesn't have pizza, fried chicken, a salad bar, and an ice cream machine. It has about six different appetizers, some great main dishes, two types of rice, noodles, and almond cookies, too. The staff is friendly and yes, they are busy. However, they have always been pleasant and helpful whenever I have needed a refill on my soda or when I'm ready for the bill.

I had wanted to try this restaurant for a long time: this was my first try for the buffet. I found that even the Szechuan dishes (marked spicy on the menu) were bland, bland, bland---and they were basically lukewarm in temperature. It was not very enticing: I found the customer service also lacking.

I like to treat myself to this place once a month or so, and it definitely is a treat!

You won't find ten different chicken dishes, or ice cream, or those rubbery little Jell-O cubes at this joint. Just an efficient 10' x 3' buffet with a great variety of fresh, unique and delicious items. Think of it as the top 15 items from a traditional Chinese buffet, but cooked with quality ingredients and care. And, yes, there are Cream Cheese Puffs and Egg Rolls. I love the Honey Mustard Shrimp and Garlic Green Beans.

My friends and I usually sing the Drew Carey Show theme song as we are on our way, but we replace "Cleveland Rocks!" with "Cleveland Wok!"

Be sure and check the hours, I drove there one Sunday from MPLS only to be left leaning my head against the front door in defeat.

Found the wok after having our favorite regular buffet go way down in quality. I didn't realize how bad it got until we ate here for the first time. Great food that is always being turned over so it's super fresh and hot. Only complaint is every day has the exact same items on the buffet. Never any variety.

Unfortunately we found Cleveland Wok after a bad experience with Grand Shanghai, a former favorite. Fortunately we found Cleveland Wok. Terrific service, exceptional food. We will return again and again.

This is a favorite for our family. The buffet is always fresh. The green beans wth garlic sauce, honey mustard shrimp, and dumplings are delicious. It is small and you often have to wait but very worth it.

I really like this place, and you can tell that it's a great place to go as it's usually packed with people! The Buffet though small, is excellent! The prices are very affordable. I love going here for lunch and I like their deep-fried bananas. Now remember, this is like a typical Chinese diner, it is not groundbreaking or high-priced, but the food is made well and tasty, and I believe it is better then most places that sell similar. So I recommend you push past their pink walls and at least try the Buffett, take-out, or deliver!

This is unlike any buffet I've been to. The food is fantastic! Fresh and delicious!
Any time we are up in St. Paul, this is the place my family and I choose for dinner.

The buffett is the best part. You can eat in or take out. They let you fill up a large to go container as full as you can get it. The food is fresh and really tasty. It helps that it is really affordable.

Great Food - the Buffet was fresh and good eats. Service was outstanding. Lunch crowd was good. I can't wait to go back. The Fried Rice was the best I have had in a long time.

CW is the best Chinese around! Can you beat $4.99 for a lunch buffet? Um, no. The Oyster Wings are great, as is the Hot and Spicy Pork - actually, everything's great! Large selection, small and extremely fresh portions! It's great! Highly recommended by me and 3 dining companions.

I ate at Cleveland Wok last night. I was dubious about an all-you-care-to-eat chinese dinner buffet for only $7.50. That's right, seven and a half bucks! This is one of the BEST DEALS IN TOWN! (Yes, I'm shouting). The buffet featured three or four different shrimp dishes, three beef entrees, two pork entrees, three chicken entrees, and several vegetarian entrees. Everything was fresh and VERY GOOD. While the atmoshere is somewhat spartan everything was clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only problem with Cleveland Wok is that it is not closer to my house!
