Anyone try Rocking Wok Taiwanese in Wallingford?

Just wondering if anyone's tried Rocking Wok Taiwanese in Wallingford (right near the old Lincoln High School). Worth going? If so, what's worth ordering? If not, where's best Taiwanese joint?

Thanks for the help chowhounders.

  1. Never been there before - will have to give it a try.

    For Taiwanese, it's Henry's Taiwan or Facing East. There are also some Taiwanese dishes at Yea's Wok.

    1. I have been to Rocking Wok and it was not that great (super salty fried chicken, three cup chicken was more bones than meat, and very unfriendly service bordering rude).

      Facing East is much better IMO, but is currently undergoing construction and will not be reopened until mid July. I think Henry's Taiwan lies somehwere inbetween in terms of quality, but is the best in terms of price!

        I liked Rocking Wok for take-out when I lived in the neighborhood, but haven't been back in a while. It's kind of a dump, and the service can be hostile, but the food is (was) decent and reasonably cheap. I probably wouldn't run across town for it.

      2. We used to go there and get take out from there all the time but I heard they changed ownership awhile back and that everything has gone downhill.

        1. Don't know if we went under new owners or old owners. We tried it because it is across the street from Hamilton middle school. The jellyfish is quite tasty and the dumplings are not bad. The first time we had some slow cooked pork dish involving MUCH fat. Jajiang mien less great.

          Most little restaurants like that are always changing ownership.
