We get take out or delivery frequently at Wok Uptown. Service is friendly and helpful but the food is the highlight. The beef dishes are made with steak, chicken is tender, shrimp are nice and plumb and fresh veggies are crispy. I love the Sacha triple delight which has plenty of veggies, chicken, shrimp and beef all in one....served over steamed jasmine rice and that is perfection. The sauce is spicy with lots of flavor. Chicken dumplings are the best in town and my kids are addicted to their crab cheese wontons. My wife loves the Asian Noodle bowls with rice noodles and it is gluten free. She loves Wok Uptown because they are willing to modify any dish since it is cooked to order and offer a lot of gluten free entrees, too. She just had the new Shanghai Bok choy dish and loved it. Wok Uptown Is our favorite Chinese restaurant in downtown Denver because the food is always great and the value surpasses any other place around here. Highly recommended!
In my first meal at Star Kitchen, I was pleased to discover a menu full of many great choices and old favorites. The food was very good and so was the service on a busy Saturday night. I had planned on being a regular. However, I later found my bank account was charged a 26% tip, when I had left an 18% tip. I disputed the charge I did not sign for through my bank, and the bank – not the restaurant – refunded me the unauthorized tip. There was also a security issue: The restaurant allowed a man to distribute marketing flyers at its front door, and when I refused a flyer on the way into the restaurant, the man blocked me from getting to my car on the way out. He stood in front of my car door. I had to tell him several times to leave me alone to be able to drive away. This made me uncomfortable and was an unpleasant way to end my meal. I alerted the restaurant, but don’t know whether any action was taken to prevent this from happening to other customers.
Strange Grounds is a diamond in the rough. The atmosphere and staff welcome you like old friends and family in their home-away-from-home, and their eats and treats are surprisingly decadent being made from scratch with love. Morning hours vary (and the door says 10ish, which is fair) because their night life is thriving with live music and comedy. The best part? Live acoustic music happens all the time, and many local groups choose to grace their house with live music while they jam together. Frieda has managed to cultivate a wonderful place for creatives and intellectuals to gather and mingle like coffee shops of old, and I look forward to watching her place grow through the years while I and all the new friends I've made here enjoy her fantastic coffee, wonderful food, and beautiful music together.
We were not impressed. The people working there were very pleasant, but our orders were brought out piece meal so we were sitting there waiting for different items we had ordered before we could actually start eating. The skimpy parts of the chicken wings were served without the meaty wing parts and no sauce came for them for 5 minutes. Then we had to wait for another 5 minutes for rice to go with our Kung Pao, etc. I may place a take out order in the future when I'm desparately hungry, but I don't think I'll go back for a sit down meal again. I will give it a three star rating because the staff were nice.
Satiating the late-night munchies in Denver.The concept is simple: create your own meal combinations (over 100 ways) choosing from an array of Urban Pita (whole wheat or white) Urban Bowl (brown rice or spinach/cilantro rice), Urban Dip (hummus, sun-dried tomato & garlic hummus, babaganoush, yogurt, etc.) or Urban Salad (tabbouleh, fattoush, tuscan kale, etc.), and then add from a selection of toppings including crispy rotisserie chicken, lamb shawarma, beef kefta, falafel, cauliflower, stuffed grape leaves, potato, feta and more.
*Best Sesame Chicken in Town*Best way to go here is to get Take out. Peter makes the best Sesame Chicken in Town. If you don't believe me, ask him, and you will find out how much pride he puts into that dish.Seriously some of the best Chinese food in Denver. Best Sesame Chicken hands down, Best Walnut Shrimp in town, Damn good Lo-mein etc. I've known about this place for more than 20 years and its still just as good as it's always been.
We were staying downtown and looking for a place to eat and have some drinks. Per the ratings, we decided to give Henry's a try and were not disappointed! We were there on a Saturday evening, no reservations, and the place was busy. Got seated right away and the waitress took very good care of us. Made sure our drinks were full, checked on us regularly. The food was very good, large portions. Highly recommend!
This is a great American Chinese hole in the wall to get take out from. The food is tasty and you get a lot of it. They will get your food done in 15 minutes every time, I drive across town to come here once in a while and it's always worth it. Not the top place in Denver but the portions are big and the taste is right. Parking is in rear of building off of Pennsylvania and Colfax.
This restaurant offers a menu with a wide variety of food items to choose from for both breakfast and lunch selections. The food that is prepared is always made from quality ingredients and has great taste. The service is always quick and efficient in preparing the food items that you have ordered and presented with a smile.
It's not gourmet food but it's not inedible. The food is your typical take out. It is however fresh , well made and delivered quickly. I have never had anyone there treat me rudely. We eat a variety of dishes from the restaurant and have never had a problem with it. The value is good as well.
