while walking in the market of Jaco we came across this asian cuisine. The sitting area is not that big but we were lucky to get the table as other people were at the bar. We order carribian fried rice , pulao, noodles and all were very tasty and hygienic. If you are in jaco and craving for asian food... More

The Wok is a nice and cozy Asian restaurant/ bar. The owner has a great personality and knows her Asian dishes. I found myself going back for lunch the following day. So if you want fresh, hot out of the wok Asian food...I suggest " the Wok" @ Jaco beach Costa Rica.

My wife and I were actually looking for another place in Jaco and, when we couldn't find it, decided to give the Wok a try. The place is small open air but that seemed to add to the atmosphere. The menu is a blend of Asian cultures-Thai, Indonesian, Indian, Vietnamese and others. My wife had Pad Thai which she enjoyed... More

Found this place randomly and sat down for a couple of beers. Ended up staying the entire night for both more beers, great food, and good conversations with the owners and the patrons. Food is great, it truly is, but I would give it only 4.5 stars for a tourist. The reason has nothing to do with this place but... More

My dad and I visited here to bring lunch back to the family. Everyone was expecting pizza but we weren't very impressed by the pizza joints we passed. We passed "The Wok" and the it smelled wonderful! The owner (Leslie I believe) was so sweet and really down to earth. We got tuna with noodles, Mahi Mahi with rice, and... More

After a long day of surfing and activity, my teenage daughter and I visited on the recommendation of our host. Dennis was an excellent, friendly and attentive host. Our wok dishes were prepared fresh out in the kitchen where we could see the meal being prepared. You better be hungry as the portions are plentiful! Even after a full day... More

Yes, Jaco has surf, but do not miss this eatery! The lady and her husband run one of the best joints in all of CR. Bottom line: this is great food. The menu is simple but there is no way to, describe what you are in for when it comes to GOOD! I wish I had the time to get... More

Service is good, but what is best is the owner's attentiveness to detail. Vegetables and sauces as fresh and tasty as you can get. Very aromatic and delightful for lunch or dinner.

A deffinate must go to when in Jaco....The Asian Thai fusion menu has something for everyone..I love all the curries there and it won't break the bank like other restaurant's in the Jaco area. In the center of town so very convenient..........
