Best Chinese for miles

I have been to this restaurant dozens of times on every day of the week for lunch and dinner and it has always been an incredible standard of Chinese cuisine. The restaurant produces the best Chinese food for miles around. I would recommend this place to any one.

I arranged to take my son here for lunch as we had tried it once before and the food was delicious. It definitely lived up to expectations, I had roast duck with boiled rice and ginger beer, and my son had chicken with noodles and a beer; the chicken disappeared but I couldn't finish all of the rice and feel...

Been a regular here since it opened. Food is consistently good, generous portions and very reasonable prices. The place is huge success , always busy. It's plain to see why.

Clean, fresh flavours and a great menu. Lots to choose from. We usually ring them and collect a take away. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

The portions at Bar & Wok are incredibly generous, I always leave a belt notch looser than when I arrived. A great, casual diner with a good menu choice and friendly staff. The benched seating could mean you're sat next to another party but that shouldn't matter. Very fairly priced and freshly prepared, quality food - the best Chinese/Japanese restaurant... More

I thought I would give this restaurant a try as it appears to be quite busy. I ordered Fish Soup with Gluten Free Noodles. I would have called my dish Gluten Free Noodle soup as there were 2 prawns, a few pieces of pink strips of artificial crab, 2 fish balls ( whatever they were) and 3 circles of ?... More

If you are hungry, the Bar and Wok is the place for you. Excellent freshly cooked food. Fast service. Go for a quick meal or take your time with friends. Need to book as this restaurant is always very busy.

This is my 2nd visit and once again I wasn't disappointed. Food, service and value for money are all positive ticks in the box. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bar and Wok as the place to go in Cheltenham.
