good value, great food and atmosphere

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

Really nice dishes, you have a lot in your plate so I would recommend the place more for lunch than dinner. It is a really friendly place, for friends and family, however pretty busy at night (better to book).

If you like good quality chinese food, this is a good place to go. Also offer carry out service. Best to book, they seem busy quite often. The seating is booth and high chair, not always comfortable. They need to rethink the seating arrangements and do a refurbishment.

You need to book!! We were there waiting for it to open having booked a table at 6pm on a Saturday for pre cinema food. We were seated but I was then getting increasingly annoyed, noticing that people who had arrived after us were being served with drinks and even food, before anyone had even served us at all. It...

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.
