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 Fredricksburg 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 dimsum. 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.
