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..........

The Wok is an amazing fusion of Chinese, Indian and Latin American food. The menu is super simple and there are great vegetarian options. The atmosphere is great, right on the main drag with outdoor seating. Great Spot!

Speed is not at a premium in Latin America; The Wok does not seem to realize where it is. Fast, good food, with excellent service, at a very respectable price. HAVE THE PEANUT SAUCE-- it's quite amazing.

We got the Cantonese rice. It was large enough to split and was good but not as good as what I am used to back home. At almost $15 for one meal and a couple of cokes I felt it was a bit pricey.

The food was great, but the service was not. Our server was unfriendly and only waited on us when we called her to our table. Disappointing.
