“Brilliant food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Ive been here 3 times now and always really enjoy it. They do a good selection of choices on the menu, i particularly like their deep fried tofu! Their portion sizes are large!

Have been on weekday nights and seems to always be busy- book a table!

Overall a great little restaurant... Now time to expand into a bigger restaurant!!

“Easy, friendly, tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We eat (or get take out) here once or twice a month. The staff are friendly and in a town with many chain restaurants, this isn't one. When it's busy the staff can struggle to serve quickly, so just make sure you're fast ordering your drinks with a starter! The food is very reasonable and tasty, I'm not very adventurous with Chinese food, but always enjoy it. It's our four year old's favourite restaurant - pretty much the only one he's been to, but they're very child friendly, Sunday lunch is family time there. Always book, always!

“generally good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

dry dishes very good, although sauces tend to be a bit over the top. good sized menu, very good portions, service prompt, even when heaving - it often is, book ahead.

“The only restaurant I really miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

It is sometimes only when you no longer have something that you realise how much it meant to you. Bar & Wok is one of those places. Having only recently moved to another town, it is the only restaurant in Cheltenham I really miss. It is one of those places that when you've been once, you keep going back until it becomes an integral part of your life. It is a combination of great food at a great price, but more so is the great staff and the constant buzz of happy and content people. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, but be warned it may well become a home away from home.
