Great food, substandard service

Loved the food! When we sat down, we were ignored. I had to go up and get my own menu. Noticed two people at the bar came in after us but got their menu and served their drinks whilst we waited and waited until I got up and got our menus and flagged down a waiter......

I had the yellowfin tuna, my husband had the Cantonese stir fry both very good. The tuna was very over cooked and modest portion. The service was the worst. The owners are a married couple who argued the entire time we were there. We were BEGGING for a drink, the owners sat there and enjoyed their dinner while one employee... More

Always a great place for a stir fry with sate sauce, my favorite! Owners are very friendly and we love to come back year after year. Great little restaurant in the heart of Jaco, great place to sit & watch the world go by.

My husband is not a fan of Chinese food. Friends of ours insisted the place had a variety of options, and they did not really view it as traditional Chinese, so we tried it. I loved how they had create your own dishes. We did not get that though. I had the shrimp pad Thai, and my husband had a... More

For such a little place, it had great food. One of the best we had all week. Hot, plentiful and TASTY! Check it out, you won't regret it. The beer was super cold and the owner was super nice.

I would have given this restaurant a Good rating if, TA had that category. It was better than average. But, I could not go so far as Very Good. The restaurant was very small & charming. But, the tourist buses parked across the road belched noxious fumes while we waited for our dinner to be prepared. I ordered white wine.... More

We found The Wok while looking for another restaurant. I had pad thai with chicken and noodles and my husband had pan seared yellow fin tuna (cooked exactly as requested) and the most awesome fried rice. Both our meals were excellent and we will definitely go back before leaving Costa Rica. Chatted with the owner (Leslie) and a local Mike.... More
