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 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!
