City Wok Chinese Franchise Information:

Fresh Chinese Made to Order
We create each dish, made to order, in our exciting, contemporary exhibition kitchens, and get ready to experience flavors that rock! Our famous half-orders, called a "marketing stroke bordering on the inspired" by the L.A. Times, are perfect for sharing or sampling a variety of dishes.

A Little About City Wok
The dream was a contemporary yet casual restaurant offering authentic, upscale Asian cuisine. Today, City Wok is proud to be recognized by Restaurant Hospitality magazine as personifying the future of fast casual dining.

Stuart Davis opened his first City Wok in 1990, working extensively with Hing Fan Chan, an executive chef trained in Kowloon, China. While other restaurants may water down, Americanize or over-expand their menus to appeal to the masses, Davis created the City Wok concept from his desire to deliver authentic Chinese dishes in a style that appeals to Americans.
