“Eat in or take away”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

It doesn't matter which, the food is excellent. The restaurant is a bit minimalist, but you are there for the food.

“A truely terrible eating experience”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

Myself and 6 colleagues went to King Wok this week and it was the worst chinese I have ever been to, not only was the food inedible but the chef and staff could not care less.
The place was not particularly busy but after waitng 50 mins from ordering no starters had arraive. When we said we were going to leave they suddenly arrived, in general the portions were small but we are big eaters. The big issue was the main dish of chicken and cashew which tasted as if a whole tub of salt had been tipped in. When we complained the Chef said it was fine and walked off suggesting he would take the automatic service charge off! He did also let it slip that the dish could not be too salty as he had just opened the tin - so not the place if you like fresh food. This coupled with being ignored by the underworked staff during the 50 min wait having the window next to our table opened by them to feeze us as people at the back of the room were too hot made this a memorable experinece for all the wrong reasons
