“Veryyyyyyy average!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

Bad bad stir fried noodles/vegetables drowned in cheap sauce! Avoid if you like fresh and quality food!
We were attracted by the reviews and badly dissatisfied by reality. We ate 10%, then the taste stopped us from continuing.
Sorry!

“Nasty stir fry, grocery store sushi”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

This place was just awful. Tried the Vietnamese rolls, spring rolls, edamame, M&M curry, yakisoba stir fry, and dragon rolls. All was uniformly terrible. Do not believe the stellar reviews. It tasted like an American hippy stir fry joint, where the intentions are good, but the knowledge just isn't there.

“Simply fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I really, really love this place, all the times that I go there, it is a pleasure!! Be aware that they have a promotion on Wednesday and Saturday and due the success of this, you may have to wait around two hours, so, it's strongly recommended to go any another day or if you still want to try the delight menu or you can wait. BTW, ask for some dished prepared for the onsite's chef, you will not regret on this.

“Need your Asian noodle stir-fry and can't find it? Now you have”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

If you really have a craving for fresh wok cooked food and you're really tired of eating Mexican food, go to Wok, because they make fresh and you can build your own meal. I've eaten here every time I needed that Asian flavor in my life. The dishes are as light as the sauces you choose, and are very satisfying. This place is hidden out of the way in a courtyard so chances are it might not be busy (which is a shame because the cook is good), but good for you because the food will come quickly! Check it out

“Fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

This is a little gem not open too long still need to work out a few kinks with service into the beautiful courtyard but the food and the price are well worth the trip...The court yard outside is beautiful but with so many excellent choices to eat from the service from each of the vendors seem to get tricky as to who is looking after what table we were a group of 8 so that didn't make it easy and we ate from 3 different vendors but the WOK produced exactly what 5 of the eight of us wanted and we all thought it was delicious with exceptional value
