A Waldoboro family has relocated their Chinese restaurant from downtown Wiscasset to a bigger space in the town where they have lived since 1995.
The Juntura family opened the Golden Wok at the intersection of Route 1 and Route 220 in early October. The restaurant is at 25 Washington Road, across from Moody’s Diner and in the same building as Cigaret Shopper.
The family is excited to offer their neighbors a new dining option.
The Golden Wok is open six days a week and offers a buffet option on three of those days, according to Eloisa Juntura, sister of owner Nathaniel Juntura. The buffet, available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, is popular with customers.
The Golden Wok – a wok is a type of pan – was at 100 Main St. in Wiscasset for about six years, according to Eloisa Juntura.
“It’s nice to be closer to home and not to have to drive as far in the winter,” she said. The Waldoboro location also affords more space: 15 tables to the six available in Wiscasset.
Eloisa Juntura said business has been good. The busiest time is Friday evenings, when the restaurant receives the bulk of its takeout orders.
One of the restaurant’s most popular dishes is its pu-pu platter, which comes with pork fried rice and vegetables, in addition to chicken and pork.
Eloisa Juntura said her favorite part of working at the restaurant is meeting people and her favorite dish on the menu is the chicken curry.
Golden Wok currently does not have a liquor license, but she said it will apply for one in the future.
The Golden Wok is open from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday and Tuesday-Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. It is closed on Monday.
Golden Wok will be closed Christmas Day, but will be open on Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day.
