Surprise gem of a restaurant!

As we looked for a place to eat during a recent visit to Sandusky, our son scanned some recent online reviews and suggested we try Jo Wok. We all love Thai food, but I was a little skeptical about what appeared to be a take-out place in a shopping plaza. The restaurant was crowded on a Friday... read more

My family and I normally love Thai food, however this restaurant was an exception. My father and I both ordered the Pad Thai and it did not meet our expectations. We were under the impression the sauce would be Tamarind, but we received this very "fishy" sauce instead. The waiter apologized to us and we were forced to order something... More

Spicy, but not overly flavorful or anything to brag about. The place is a bit run down. It wasn't worth what we paid for dinner.

Travelling for business and didnt want fast food. This restaurant just happened to be in the Subway parking lot. Wow. I had Jo's Fried Rice which is a veg dish with tofu, garbanzo, almonds, pinapple and a whole lot of other yummy stuff. Totally delicious. Will be back!!

We have been enjoying Jo Wok Thai food for years! We've since moved out of state and miss this delicious restaurant and try to stop whenever we are back in town. Best pad thai, curry, thai iced tea or coffee, and tom yum soup ANYWHERE! It's a hit and miss with service. Sometimes you get someone who speaks good English,... More

Take one bite & you'll feel like you're in Thailand. I've lived in Thailand for 1 year & trust me, Jo Wok's Thai owners & staff will amaze you. Great, fast service (pay before you eat). A true hidden gem in Sandusky. Can't. Wait to return.

Don't judge Jo Wok by its appearance. Truly good Thai food, with all the flavor and heat you could want. Take it to go.

I have been going to this place for years, and I am always satisfied. You get a lot of food for your money, and its always delicious- especially the fries rice. The employees are always friendly and the service is fast. I will continue to go here as long as they are open.

What a gem of a place. You say you don't like Asian food. You need to open your taste buds to a very special place in Sandusky. There is food for everyone. Try the Cucumber Salad, Veg/Tofu Soup, Jo's Fried Rice, or or many of the other dishes that have flavors beyond most peoples idea of good food. Not sure,... More
