I love this restaurant! First described to me as "order a takeaway, then sit down and eat it" It's a good way to describe this restaurant - if you generally enjoy Chinese take away food, then you will simply love this venue - big portions, always served scorching hot, familiar menu, familiar food. (Served on plates, not in foil ha-ha)... More

I've eaten in Bar & Wok many times over the past few years with friends and family and can confidently highly recommend here for lunch or dinner if you're in Cheltenham. It's not open on Mondays, and opens 12pm-2pm Tues-Sun for lunch (till 3pm on a Sat) and 6pm-10pm Saturday & Sunday. It does fill up in the week at... More

Very good food and portion size! We had a take away a few weeks later, still good but portion size was smaller.

I've been to Bar and Wok a few times now and definitely recommend it. We turned up on a Friday night without booking. Even though the restaurant was extremely busy, they managed to find us a table and served our food quickly (as requested). The service was great, thank you. The food portions are large, many veggie options available and... More

Being new to Cheltenham we used Google to find the Emerald Thai restaurant, but when we got there it was shut down so we happened on the bar and wok. We had a short wait for a table because it was so full. The menu was quite simple but was very good, perhaps a little over salted. The seating is... More

Recently moved to the area and I have been missing eating good Chinese food. But we have now found a great place. I had duck noodle soup and my husband had a gluten free option. Both were delicious. The meat was succulent and tasty. To drink we had ginger beer. The meal for 2 was £20. Bargain. This will now... More

The staff are a credit, always polite, service is quick & food is fabulous! The only negative with this restaurant is that they close at 2pm and open again later in the day!

For: It had very nice Service starters were very good too. The menu also had a lot to choose from. Be warned the portions at bar wok are HUGE! The sweet & sour prawns were not too bad (But a bit cold) Crispy duck was very good as well. Against: Even if you order your Singapore noodles hot they are... More

This place is great! Some of the best food I have ever eaten and customer service that is 2nd to none. I love this place! The open seating might not be for everyone and it can get a little loud, but that is part of its charm! Their big plates are delicious and big! I can't recommend enough. Keep up... More
