My husband and I have been regular customers for over 10 years. We always enjoyed the food very much until recently. The Hot and Sour Soup has been a big disappointment for last several months. It has become watery, skimpy on ingredients, espercially chicken, and is not as tasty. One of our favorites, Beef and Snow Peas, now has thin, gummy, tasteless beef, replacing the wonderful beef that was previously in this delightful dish. I hope this is not an indication of a current and future trend in the food preparation at Uncle Kwok's. We would rather pay a little more for a return to the previous quality of the food at Uncle Kwok's.
I eat lunch there occasionally and find it's just OK. I do like the Kung Pao very much, at least most of the time. It is home made and a little different each time. The service is usally very good, especially if you want a quick lunch.
My wife and I ate dinner at Uncle Kwok's tonight and found everything to be excellent! That includes the service and everything we ate. Also, good to know that they serve brown rice as an alternative to the white rice. Very dependable. Never dissapointed!!!
We've been all over Santa Cruz, Capitola, Soquel and Aptos for Chinese and Uncle Kwok's is without question the best in the area. Their Honey Walnut Prawns are INCREDIBLE! The brown sauce in the Kung Pao Chicken is totally home made and has one of the most unique flavor combinations I've ever tasted!! The Pot Stickers are so fresh and tender and also very clearly hand-made. The combo fried rice and chow mien can't be beat and all of their soups are AMAZING!! I could go on and on but suffice to say that you won't find any better on the Central Coast!
