This is our 1st stop in Manhattan Beach (and in the South Bay)! Usually on a Sunday for lunch, even though many others may find the place, the line for lunch is quick. This Mongolian BBQ Stir Fry is a lot of fun and the cooks are joyful and willing to clean to grill if (like me) you don't like... More

I've been enjoying this place for 20 years, since it used to be a tiny place 1/4 the size in Hermosa beach. Price is fair and the options are plentiful. You will enjoy this place but be careful of the rush hours when the line of patrons may exceed 20. Don't despair though, this place is efficient and you will... More

Back in the day I used to visit several Mongolian BBQ places in Torrance, including Big Wok, but then my sister discovered this location in Manhattan Beach. Ever since, we’ve been coming here whenever we feel like Mongolian BBQ, although that doesn’t happen that often. Compared to the other Big Wok I’ve been to, this one is larger and has... More

Big Wok for those that don't know is an all you can eat mongolian bbq place. I hadn't been in one for 20 years. We stopped in about 7pm, wasn't too crowded. Had a few bowls while we watched jeopardy and wheel on the TV. It got very crowded about 730-745 but we were thankfully done with the cooking by... More

Everything in the restaurant is very fresh, and your taste buds will be allured by so much different kind of tastes that you can make it in your favorite style. All my families and I were so happy to have the dinner here, and this would be a great experience of eating out.

No flash, no frills, you only notice it from Sepulveda because of the red "BIG WOK" sign. Parking can be tricky, no lies, but it's worth it. Clean, tastefully decorated restaurant with light wood trim and photos from Mongolia. Atmosphere is convivial and relaxed. Prompt, friendly service with a smile. Get your table, then immediately get in line, load up... More

I can't really give this place more than 3 stars. It's really not any better than the Mongolian you get at the mall, and the mall is cheaper, too. I'm wondering if my fellow reviewers don't eat out much? So, you get the usual assortments of frozen thin meats (lamb, chicken, pork, turkey and beef), the veggies, sauce, noodles and... More

If you like Mongolian Barbecue you'll love this place! It's always packed so be patient. I've eaten here numerous times over the years and have always been satisfied. Great food at great prices.

Circle the giant wok as they cook your stuff - meats, veggies, spices, peppers, they've got it all and insane sesame bread. Get there early to beat the rush and tip the cooks. Flavorful and inexpensive you won't be disappointed - just remember it has zero atmosphere and bright lights.
