We have been regulars at Flaming Wok for almost a year. We sometimes eat there 3 times a week! The food is always consistently good and the waitresses are great! Love their sushi also!!

I have eaten here several times in the past year. My son is a student at UVA Medical School and when we visit, this is a MOST. My family has always had a wonderful experience here and the staff is great. Would recommend this place to everyone.

You can have Japanese flaming, juggling chefs or eat Chinese in the other part of this restaurant. They don't mix well however. Food is good, served quickly and reasonably priced but somehow it misses the mark on both. Good if you are staying in nearby hotels but hardly worth making a special trip.

Some of our family really enjoy the Flaming Wok, and while it is not bad (meaning we'll go when asked), it is not something we'd choose on our own - there is better Japanese food around town. First, when one is seated at a Teppan Yaki table, the wait can range from a few minutes to over half an hour... More

The first time we went to this place with our 6 yr old, she really enjoyed the show - the food was so-so. The next time we went there we were very disappointed with the service. We asked for a Teppan Yaki dish we ordered to be cancelled and the waiter assured us it was and brought us other stuff.... More

A basically good, nothing-to-write-home-about Chinese restaurant. I am not the biggest fan of their sushi, however.

Had takeout from the Flaming Wok during our stay in Charlottesville and the food was really good! Extensive menu and the choices we had were not greasy and were prepared well.

We go to Flaming Wok restaurant when ever our family friends invites us to join for their kids birthday party. The food has been good but the service, I wish they could learn and improve! You almost have to beg for refill of your drinks ! The chef does his cooking in front of you , amusing the kids but... More

We've settled on the FW as our Chinese take-out of choice. The kitchen is super fast so you can stop in on the way home, order & be back out the door in 10 minutes or so with some tasty food.
