Everyone enjoys knowing about a special little ‘hole in the wall’ restaurant, their own little secret that they share sparingly with close friends of the joys of a small humble restaurant featuring food that excels in some way. We returned to Wok n Roll after noting our destination restaurant had a 1 hour wait. An unassuming blue canopy over a... More

The General Tso's chicken was the best we have ever had. I had the curry and it was not like the authentic Indian curry I have had in other countries. It was kind of bland. We will definately come here again. The service was very good and timely.

Nice "American" Chinese food. Can u image a Chinese restaurant also sell sushi? LMFAO. If u r a Chinese and wanna have a experience of how "Mei shi Zhong can" then go ahead. And u should order their meat coked with soy sauce.

We had lunch at Wok & Roll after someone recommended it to us. The food was quite good and generous portions. I had the veggie fried rice and my husband had the cashew chicken. Both selections were tasty and were priced very reasonably. On a negative note, the server was not very friendly and my food was brought to me... More

Had the whole Peking Duck, it was delicious and large enough for two with some left over. Atmosphere was just right, not too loud, not too quiet. It was also a real value. The steamed dumplings were excellent as well. One complaint was that there was no dessert, except the fortune cookies.

Okay, given the size of "Chinatown", I didn't really expect to find much choice - but I did expect to find the usual ducks and pigs barbecuing and woks steaming up the windows. Nevertheless, we decided to randomly select a restaurant because we really wanted something other than steak and burgers. I ordered the hot and sour soup. It was... More
