“Great food and very reasonable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

I have eaten here on a few occasions with colleagues from work. The food has always been to a high standard (very fresh) and generally the bill per person is no more than £20.00. The staff are friendly and helpful and are always there to help however, they don't smother you like some restaurants. I'd highly recommend this eatery.

“Best Chinese restaurant in Northampton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

The selection is second to none, and the atmosphere and service can't be faulted.

A personal favourite dish of mine is hot and sour soup, and nowhere I've tried it comes close to the Wok

“Book early to avoid disappointment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This very busy restaurant never disappoints. The food is good, hot, available as you request it.
An "Eat as much as you like" menu with an extensive range of dishes. Served at your table, not buffet style. The starter menu is very varied, and you can follow that with crispy duck with pancakes and other dishes, but the duck is our favourite. Followed by any of the main course dishes. Something for everyone.
The staff are always polite and attentive just as they always were, in spite of new management about a year ago. They have kept up the standard, which doesn't always happen when a restaurant changes hands.
If we want to eat Chinese, we always choose The Wok Inn.

“Since change of management poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

We attended my daughters birthday dinner, and normally you are safe with the Wok. Unfortunately recent experiences have proven that since a change of management and staff the service has declined dramatically. The food continues to be very good but service is the critical factor. All attendees agreed that we will give the place a wide berth until we see a change reported. Looks like we will be visiting Castilian St more often.
