In 1972, Connie Andrews dreamed of owning her own small Chinese restaurant. It didn’t matter that she was not Asian, had no cooking experience and had never cooked on a Chinese stove before. What she had was determination, persistence, faith and the willingness to work 18-hour days. Her dreams became a reality on September 7, 1972, when her first Golden Wok restaurant opened in San Antonio. After struggling on a shoestring budget for the first two years, Connie’s long days and determination paid off as the restaurant began to gain popularity. Kenneth Lau joined Golden Wok in 1974 and became a partner in 1976. The second Golden Wok location opened later that same year on Fredericksburg Road.
A third Golden Wok location opened in 1987 on Wurzbach Road in San Antonio, featuring authentic Asian cuisine and the city’s only dim sum house. Thirty years later, Golden Wok remains a San Antonio dining destination, famous for its fresh, handmade daily selection of traditional Chinese dim sum. From full-flavored Chef’s specials to the Create Your Own Stir-Fry bar, the Golden Wok experience is a symphony of flavors harmonizing to create a fresh and unique Asian dining experience. Whether you are enjoying a quick meal or lingering over your food and drinks with friends, you will be treated to the best of today’s fresh Asian cuisine in a comfortably beautiful and stylish setting.
