We stopped by for lunch but were not expecting what we found. Small place but very comfortable. Friendly greeeting by the staff and quick service. Our drinks were perfectly cold and on the table in no time. Then came the food. I ordered a stir fry with chicken and curry sauce. My husband ordered a fried rice meal with mixed... More

This place is awesome and so is the Pulao! How have I lived in the Jaco area for 8 months and never tried this place!?!?! We had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners, Lee, while dining at the The Wok. I loved his stories about his travels, how he decided to move to Costa Rica, and his surf... More

Passed by in the afternoon after we'd had lunch and it smelled so good we went back for our dinner meal. We opted to sit at the bar and had a wonderful time chatting with Lee, one of the owners. Food was filling and served hot with sauce on the side which was a pleasant surprise. With customizable menu options... More

Owner is from Indonesia and we enjoyed the food. Vietnamese spring rolls, Thai specialties, Malaysian dishes, it was all good. Consider ordering a separate vegetable dish, as there weren't a lot in the main dishes.

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
