A food-court style, Chinese restaurant for fast and inexpensive meals.
I've been here for lunch three times with my good lady in the last few weeks and the food is terrific.
City Wok is one of about eight little alcoves in Hornby Food Court, an abditive little food court on Hornby St, just off West Pender St. Also in there are Filipino, Japanese, Greek establishments and a salad bar.
As it was so brilliant the first time, I've kept going for the chicken curry each time I've been. There are no peas in the rice, which is brilliant! I hate peas! The barbecue pork is better than in any other fast Chinese place I've tried it, and everything else I've tried has been hot, fresh and very, very flavourful. I think my rice with three "things" was less than $8. Fantastic!
The good lady works at Thurlow Street, so to get here we walk past the Bentall Centres, ignoring those food courts, and walking another couple of blocks just to get here.
The ambiance is fine, even if the place is a little packed, and last time I was in there, it sounded like Darth Vader was sat next to me, such was his heavy breathing. Perhaps he was enjoying his City Wok even more than I was.
This place is brilliant and I wholeheartedly recommend City Wok to anyone who works nearby.
