An excellent meal on a weekday midday lunchtime. Very good quality food, very cheap. Food served freshly cooked and hot. One serving of most of the dishes includes a generous portion of steamed rice / boiled rice: noodles cost £1 more. Decor basic - but who cares? Paper table napkins, bamboo chopsticks you break apart but extremely good food which... More

We went here for lunch and thought it was fantastic. Very tasty food - lovely and fresh tasting, lots of fresh veg, huge portions. Service was good and they were happy to be flexible - daughter asked for rice noodles with her dish, no problem. Jasmine tea was delicious and very cheap. Extremely good value for the amount of food.... More

What an excellent find! This restaurant reminds me of the fantastic 'ma and pa' noodle shops in Hong Kong; fresh food and well cooked. A colleague and I had decided that noodles were required and the Bar & Wok came near the top on recommends. Service was superb from minute one, attentive staff who listened. We shared a large table... More

First meal here and was quite excited about trying the shredded crispy beef. But when it came it not only did it look like a bowl of pork scratchins' they tasted exactly like them too, and not a quality brand at that! Very highly salted dish with precisely 3 slices of 'greenery' not sure if it was spring onion. Service... More

When people at work ask me where is nice to go for lunch I always recommend Bar & Wok. Sure there are better restaurants to go for as special occasions, first dates etc but as a casual lunch or early evening venue I don't think you can get better. The portion sizes are far bigger than most chain restaurant venues... More

We have been regular visitors to the Bar & Wok since it first opened, several years ago. Simple Chinese recipes using fresh ingredients (unlike any typical take-away food I have eaten before in this country), at reasonable prices. Excellent service. In my experience, faultless.

We were pleasantly surpised by the friendly staff, who offered good suggestions. You certainly don't leave feeling hungry!! I would go back because of the portion size. A fine array of Eastern delights!!!

I love this place. Owner is amazing and takes such pride in all that happens here. Food consistently very good. Service and drinks super as well. My favourite place in Cheltenham. Very accommodating and friendly. Tofu in black bean sauce is my favourite. Beef curry terrific as well. It's all excellent. Go there!
