Locals looking forward to the grand opening of the Golden Wok have to wait a little longer.
A ribbon cutting set to take place at 11:30 a.m. Thursday has been canceled until further notice, according to a Facebook post by the Emporia Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Golden Wok, located at 2805 US Hwy. 50, has been undergoing renovations since China Buffet closed last year. The restaurant promises to offer a “super buffet,” along with a hibachi grill and sushi.
In an email to The Emporia Gazette Tuesday afternoon, Golden Wok Owner Sharon Sun said the restaurant was waiting for inspections from the city of Emporia.
“We are waiting for the city department to do the final inspection,” Sun said. “It should be done very shortly. Once it’s done, we are ready to prepare the openings.”
