On Sunday, August 23, 2015 my daughter and I had lunch at Wong’s Chinese Restaurant, 692 North Loudoun Street, in Winchester, Virginia. Hours are Monday-Thursday, 11:00 AM-9:30 PM; Friday and Saturday, 11:00 AM-10:30 PM; Sunday, 12:00 PM-9:30 PM.
The telephone number is (540) 667-2344. Wong’s offers eat in, carry out, and delivery service. Off-street parking is available in a gravel parking lot behind the building which is also accessible from North Cameron Street.
Entry is through a vestibule with a door on its left side. The single room has four booths along the left wall, three tables next to the booths, and four tables in the back. There are two tables along the right wall, and a bar with six stools toward the back on that side.
A single TV set is in the corner of the wall above and behind the bar, and the cashier’s station is beyond the bar. The windows have lattice structures on the inside, and Oriental decorations are on the walls here and there.
The twelve-page menu’s categories include Polynesian Drinks, Cocktails and Liquors, Appetizers, Soup, Chef’s Specialties, Diet Corner, Seafood, Beef, Pork, Poultry, Chef’s Special Noodle Dish, Fried Rice, Lo Mein or Chow Mein, Children’s Dinner, Combination Platters, and American Menu.
We started out with Shrimp Toast from the Appetizer Menu, which was very good. My daughter ordered Shrimp with Lobster Sauce from the Seafood menu, and a Coke because she was told that iced tea was not available.
I chose Four Season from the Chef’s Specialties, which was listed as ‘a savory blend of lobster, shrimp, chicken, and roast pork with Chinese mixed vegetables, served with crispy wonton’, and had a pot of hot tea. We were given a single shared bowl of white rice.
My daughter found her shrimp dish very good, and commented on the large shrimp. However, I was disappointed with my order because the meat had not been stir-fried sufficiently, and was mushy; also, I did not receive any wonton.
I ate only part of my serving and did not think the remainder worth taking home. We were the only patrons during most of our stay, but a group of four arrived before we left.
I was not impressed with our service. My daughter later found iced tea on the menu, but the waitress argued that it was not an option with the section of the menu she had ordered from.
Also, we were presented with the bill without being asked about dessert, which was included in my daughter’s order; she had to insist that she was entitled to almond cookies. I had not eaten at Wong’s for a number of years, and went to see what it was like today. Now that I know, I’ll not be back.
I have been eating at Wong's for years (more than I care to remember) and it has always been a great food experience. I usually order their Bean Sprouts with Shrimp, Hot and Sour Soup, Fried Rice and Vegetable Spring Roll. No other restaurant around offers Bean Sprouts and Shrimp. It is great for the dieter or the diabetic, just as for a smaller serving of rice. Everything is well seasoned, hot and tasty. The service is fast and polite. The decor is not the reason I eat in this restaurant, it great food. Where else can you get a quality/quantity lunch served on linen table cloths for a very reasonable price.
