“Fantastic!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Great food- dishes always cooked to order, fresh produce used and vegetables always lace the dishes which don't leave that aftertaste/ icky feeling alot of chinese cuisine does!
Fantastic value for money- the dishes are huge! Go in a group and one meal between two with rice is plenty, we always order a dishes and share them all- always some left over too.
Great, friendly service!
Only down side is last time we went on a cold evening and sat next to the door as there were no other tables, and as the restaurant gets so busy the door was constantly opening and closing so we were freezing! But other than that a great experience!

“Good food and service at a good price.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

It's getting a bit busy on London Road in terms of oriental cuisine now and thankfully many of them are of a good standard. Glad to say that this place follows the trend.

Been in for lunch recently having been once before when it first opened and not thinking too much of it. A friend recommended trying it again as the food standard has improved.

She was right. Portions were generous -had some satay beef and rice, three roasties with crispy noodles and a fried rice dish. All very generous portions of very tasty food. Free ice cream to finish and good value too. To cap it all off, very good service as well which can be lacking in Chinese restaurants.

Overall, worth giving it a try.

“Crispy Duck Delight!!!!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I have been to this restaurant a few times now, and is one of my favourites when visiting friends in Sheffield. I do love Chinese food and find it difficult to find authentic Chinese restaurants. I have to say, sincerely, this is one of the best Chinese restaurants I've been to outside of London.

The place is quirky, cost effective with a great menu. The staff are friendly and pleasant, and the service is speedy and efficient.

Everyone's favourite, the 'crispy duck' was delicious and what's more there was plenty of it! Round 2 involved the special 3 roasties! The flavours of the marinade were great and I was absolutely stuffed at the end of it.

I would recommend trying for a fab foodie experience with friends. Expect great service and value for money.

“Awful, Awful service. Life is just too short to eat here!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We ate at Hong Kong Wok on 31/01/2013. We had not booked but arriving at just after 7 pm our party of 5 was directed to a vacant table. Drinks orders were taken straight away and our food order some 10 minutes later. Starters were an uncomplicated 3 portions of standard mixed platter, and a further 2 of the veggie option. 20 minutes later 3 standard starter courses were delivered, but the waitress then immediately began cleaning and polishing all the surrounding tables, before disappearing and returning a FULL 10 MINUTES later with the 2 other starters! By which time the first starters were cold.
Some 40 minutes after finishing the starters our main courses still had not arrived, so we politely enquired where they were to be told somewhat curtly “we are very busy”. After a further 10 minutes, I asked another waitress, who promised to find out, but she disappeared and was never seen again. A further 10 minutes elapsed, before I finally lost patience and went in search of the manager, to request the bill for the starters and drinks.
All the manger could say (shout) was “It’s here now, it’s here now!!” so I agreed to return to our table and allow the food to be served. By then it was far too late to set out in search of somewhere else to eat anyway!
We paid the bill and left the restaurant at 9.30pm , without even receiving so much as an apology for the woeful service.
Life is just too short to eat here. I have never been to a Chinese restaurant where the staff are so inattentive and the service so inadequate, which is a shame because the food was reasonable, and there was certainly plenty of it.
In fact the only thing that the restaurant got right was the message in the fortune cookie “You are unlikely to eat at Hong Kong Wok again……”
