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

We went there because it came highly recommended from some work colleagues. The service was timely - but lacked any and all enthusiasm. It was as we were a inconvenience. We were the only ones there. The food was not good - we could not finish our meals. I would not recommend it.

After stumbling into this place by accident we ended up having a dinner here every night. It's located a bit off the main touristy area which makes it much less popular, but with only a handful of tables, this actually worked well for us. This is a small restaurant/bar with a cook working directly behind the counter, very good quality... More

Having lived in Jaco for three years, I have eaten in the Wok several times before. I had lunch yesterday with a women's group of 16 people. This is small place who should have appreciated such a group. However, things went downhill very quickly. I had a water with me & the waitress/owner? promptly said - don't bring your own... More

(well... the best Asian perhaps excluding the sushi category because they specialize in hot plates ~ wok dishes specifically) They have selected only a handful of recipes representing Indian, Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, Indonesian, Thai and Japanese foods and, boy, do they do these well! In my 6th or 7th visit now I've had every dish (because I usually take some... More
