Great experience

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.

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

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.

I'd recently found out about the bar and wok and after looking at the menu I was eager to try it. Booking is a must as during the evening many walk ins had to leave as there was no room for them. Seated and served quickly despite being in the heat of service, we ordered some drinks, starters and mains.... More

My wife and I are regulars to this smart and contemporary Chinese restaurant. Being Chinese and having lived in Singapore for several years, I have had some very good Chinese food in my time and I am very impressed with Bar & Wok. There is a decent variety of authentic rice and noodle dishes along with their interesting and tasty... More

You normally need to book. Really good quality food and service. The main dishes are mostly served with the rice included and portions are large. If you have a starter first you will struggle to eat it all. The squid starter was especially nice didnt like the thai fish cakes but others did. Would have given it 5 Stars but... More

Went on a Friday, and even though it was busy the food was perfect and the service excellent. Food was fresh and tasty and the portions were more then enough. Well worth going

Bar wok is a consistently good eatery with yummy food that doesn't break the bank. I've yet to meet anyone who disagrees.

This place is consistently good. As others say, it is usually busy but that's a good sign, right? Huge portions of filling but healthy food (we shared a starter and a noodle soup and it was plenty for two for lunch). Inexpensive, unpretentious, reliable. What's not to like?

There are few sit down Chinese restaurants in the Cotswold. This one is very good. We ordered duck, calamari, Katsura chicken noodle soup, spicy beef noodle soup, and cashew chicken. All of them were nicely cooked and flavoured and tasted fresh (probably due to its popularity). The decor also has a nice contemporary feel. We walked in right after noon... More
