Had a takeaway from here for the first time in years. Sorry but won't be having another. The rice was way to salty and the beef curry was yucky the beef like shoe leather. Only good thing was the chicken balls

Sorry to hear your disappointment. We only use top quality topside beef and cut up and sliced in our establishment but if you're familiar with topside beef then you might understand that we can get slightly tougher meat in parts from time to time. I can only guess it's unfortunate that you had beef like leather. I must disagree with... More

Hi. Really sorry to hear your not so pleasant experience at our establishment. Every single of our order is cooked to order and during busy periods especially around this time of the year, our shop could get very hectic and busy that's when a higher chance of human error. I can only presume that the food's blandness was due the... More

Got a takeout from Woks tonight, usually have it home delivered, but fancied a walk. I was greeted straight away and my order taken. I asked for a small order of a usual meal, for reasons I explained to the chef and this was accommodated, no problem. We are regular customers here and mostly have home delivery, but, whether you...

Called here after Husband fancied fish and chips from a couple of doors away. Decided to try the Chinese takeaway. Best decision ! The lemon chicken was the best portion and quality I've ever had and the egg fried rice was delicious. Well worth the wait. Lovely obliging staff too.

Having eaten the superb food from this takeaway many times I thought it was only fair to write a review. The food is of a higher quality than other takeaways and the service is excellent. Great variety on the menu and you can tailor your order specifically to your taste/ dietary requirement. This excellent standard is provided consistently which makes... More

I had "Woks Cook In special chow Mein" takeaway dinner. More like "10 Year old cooks special". Slices of chicken and beef pasted with red watery sauce slumped on tasteless noodles. Really bad. Never again.

The red sauce is our home made gravy sauce. The meat on top are slice chicken and Chinese roast pork. We have been serving this dish like this for over 30 years at this same shop. I guess you have to go to China to find the really authentic Chinese food. Sorry to disappoint! More

My family has been using Wok's cook-in for a very long time now (20+ years) and we have always been very satisfied. Personal favourite is the Singapore rice noodles, hits the spot!

We enjoyed a beef curry & fried rice meal. Very tasty and it did not leave me thirsty afterwards. Premises were nice clean and you can see the chef preparing and cooking your meal which made me feel better as the kitchen also appeared spotless. It was worth the journey from the town centre... If only I'd known they deliver!
