“Small, well done menu, with vegan options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We stopped to eat at The Wok, for the first time, based on the amazing smells. The service was great. Simple menu with a focus on the basics. The owner was interesting to talk with.

“Healthy Eating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I travel to Jaco at a average of once a month for business and have it in my schedule to stop for lunch at The Wok.I find the food and service excellent .After a meal I feel satisfied and with the feeling of just indulging in a very healthy ,fresh ,clean meal ,something that does not happen from your typical fast food place .
On any future trips to Jaco with friends ,our lunch will always be at The Wok.

“Good food friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Simple Chinese inspired food with other Asian elements. Run by a friendly Dutch guy who didnt mind to take time to share a beer and some stories and local information. Good, basic noodles with a lot of choice as to adjust the dishes to get exactly what you want. Ate fish sexond time here and was very fresh and nice, and simply but well prepared.
