For a Asian buffet this is one of my favorites. It's always fresh and delicious. Service is great. Can get quite busy on evenings and weekends

I like Chinese and this restaurant is very good. They have a good selection, either from the buffet or order from a menu. They have an innovative takeout from the buffet. We had a variety of dishes and everything was very good. I would go back anytime.

Whenever my family can't agree on a place, the Cleveland Wok is our go-to. We all love the food and it's awesome. Best broccoli ever and lots of selections for chicken and pretty good dumplings and the chopsticks aren't hard to find. The buffet packs a punch. You're in for a treat.

easy, pleasant, small buffet but good variety. Especially pleased with two things: (1) they kept replenishing the buffet, so possible to get items freshly cooked and hot; and (2) decent vegetarian variety including green beans; stir fried vegetables, and cheese wonton.

They have a menu, but I've never looked at it, 'cuz the buffet's so good. It's not one of those mile-long buffets, but quality beats quantity every time (and being a buffet, quantity's unlimited anyway). My measure of a Chinese buffet is their green beans. You've got about a 30 second window between undercooked and overcooked, and The Wok gets... More

I was recently visiting St. Paul visiting my son. He asked if I would take him and a friend to lunch at the Cleveland Wok. I said sure, not exactly certain what I was in for at the time. The restaurant is relatively small but was clean and attractively decorated. The three of us arrived about 1:30 p.m. well past... More

I've been a customer/ fan for about 10 years. Their buffet selection is smaller than most, but much higher quality. Their egg foo young is probably the best I've had anywhere. Their meat dishes are also excellent. Their green beans are amazing. Only word of caution is that Mondays are not as good as the other days - I've always... More

I used to live in Highland Park and I went to St Kates just down the road, so this was always a good lunch spot for me. I now only get to visit occasionally since I have moved thousands of miles away, but this is MY top spot for Chinese food when I am in the Twin Cities. I have... More

I love this place! I live in Highland so its convenient and always quality food/service. I have brought many friends and they have always been pleased with their order. The buffet is an excellent deal for lunch or dinner, its very popular. I think they lose $ on some of the buffet patrons! I always have the mock duck w/veggies... More

I have fallen in love with this place. It isn't fancy and it isn't over the top great. But it is consistent and has a huge bang for the buck. At under $8 for lunch buffet, it comes in less than a lot of fast food options. Everything I have had on the buffet has been very good quality.
