I just went to First Wok for lunch, and the low prices are not enough to get me to return.

I got the Kung Pao Chicken, which came with wonton soup, eggroll and steamed rice. The soup broth tasted like it came from a can; the wontons were

First Wok is still as good as the previous posters have mentioned. The delivery service is always prompt and the food is always hot!

The General Tso Chicken and Poo-Poo platter are two fantastic recommendations! Just felt the need to

I'm every picky about Chinese food and this place is one of the best. Friendly people working there. If you like spicy food order the spicy shrimp.

Yeah it's small but the wait staff is so friendly, the prices are affordable and the food is awesome! I have been to many Chinese places and the food just doesn't compare it is delicious, everything!

The place is really small & even though there's not any obvious dirty areas it seems dirty when you're inside. The parking lot is horrible & the food doesn't really have much flavor!

Though I've never visited China, I've eaten a hell of a lot of its food. The aesthetically modest First Wok really stands among the finest Asian dining experiences you can have, in Austin or otherwise. Yeah, the place doesn't look like much from the outside (a brick rectangle next to a laundromat) and the interior decor is no more regal, but once you've sampled your first bite, it's obvious that the food is really where they place their efforts and this just adds to the entire "best-kept-secret" appeal of the place. Because this hole in the wall has never served me anything less than a perfect meal. Even as you're looking over the menu, they bring you a free appetizer of delicious fresh fried noodles. My regular meal there is the combination fried noodles with shrimp, chicken and beef. Though it's a simple dish, the flavors and freshness of all the ingredients exceed the quality of any Chinese food I've had elsewhere, including much more "respectable" restaurants. The coup-de-grace is the engaging, attentive and often warmly sarcastic wait staff -- easily the best in town. I obviously can't recommend this place highly enough, so instead of reading my endless praising babble, just go to First Wok. Oh, and they also deliver.

They have a shrimp dish with candied walnuts that I cannot find anywhere else. It has a slightly sweet mayonaise sauce that is lightly drizzled over the shrimp. YUM! .I usually ask for the broccoli (that is the vegetable with the shrimp dish) to be steamed a little longer and always get it perfectly done to my taste.The waitstaff are nice and remember you. The complimentary "chips" and sweet dipping sauce is good too. How do they get the wanton strips so crispy yet tender?
I live north but sometimes I just need their shrimp!
Very family friendly and usually very quiet and conversation friendly, too!

I have been going to First Wok for six years now, but never before that did I like Chinese food. I had tasted the food at a different restaurant and I did not like and I also did not like the prices, but when my husband took me to First Wok I loved it and ever since then I have been going there. I recommend it to anyone. I have told my friends about it and they love it too, especially their soups their just perfect.

First Wok serves great-tasting, good-looking, traditional American Chinese food in a non-pretentious little restaurant. Portions are ample, prices reasonable, quality consistently high, service good or better. I have been ordering takeout from First Wok for more than 10 years, at first b/c it was conveniently close, but after sampling the others over the years, I keep coming back to First Wok for the quality of their food. The only reason I qualified my rave with 'southside' is b/c I seldom get north of the river, and did not want to imply knowledge of other places that I don't have.

Pros: The Take Out

.

I've been ordering from First Wok for over four years. I've turned friends on to it and although there are many restaurants in the area with Chinese or Vietnamese food, First Wok is the best. I've been in the restaurant to eat, but I'm lazy and the delivery is my favorite. Portions are huge and reasonably priced, so one order can easily last for two meals. And the Hot and Sour soup is excellent. Better than any other Asian restaurant in the area.
