“Favorite place to eat.”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Wok n Roll is my most favorite place in the world to eat. The sushi is wonderful, so is the all the other food I have tried there. The staff go that extra mile with the service. Even giving my daughter tips on how to make the perfect sushi rice. Kandice and Romain make you feel really welcome. We spent our last night in Costa Rica eating at wok n roll, and what a great last night we had. Can't wait to return hopefully August 2013. It was our first visit since the fire, and I just love the new decor. (The fire wasn't down to wok n roll it started in a bar next door) Price wise I think its very good value for money, 3 of us had sushi, woks, desserts and drinks for $99. See you all next year xx

“Excellent best pad Thai”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

we decided to try the wok and roll because of its great smell
and were really pleased!!

Great waiter and owner Romain very friendly he came to talk with us
and made sure we had everything we needed. It showed that his restaurant
was important to him and that he wanted to make the best of it.

The food was amazing and the restaurant had a great wine selection.
I had a glass of Sauvignon and it was fresh and fited exactly with what I was
Eating

We ate a green curry and a padthai plate
Very tasty lots of flavors
Just great food. It was very representative of what I
had eaten in Asia probably due to the fact that His wife is Korean

Good atmosphere great music
Service was fast and attentive
Restaurant is clean,laid back and trendy at the same time


Most important thing is that the price is more than reasonable
2 glass of wine
2 main plates
A coffee
A soft drink
40 dollars with the service tips included
Amazing for the food quality and atmosphere

Felt great to fell like someone in Tamarindo was charging
The right price for what they offered in this very touristy and expensive city

Worth the stop

“Average Sushi -- not bad, not great, and average prices for sushi”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

I just had a couple of rolls for lunch and they were okay -- the fish didn't seem incredibly fresh, but it wasn't bad either. The sauces with the rolls weren't very good either and it was all fairly expensive -- two rolls, a frozen lemonade (which was actually a 5 star drink -- go here for that) and a bottle of water was almost $30, which was about what I'd expect to pay at any sushi place in the US.

“Best Value in Tamarindo”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

The food here is great at prices that encourage you to eat here several times in a short trip to Tamarindo. They do a range of Asian foods, all of them excellent. We had Vietnamese cold rolls, Pad Thai, and Korean BBQ. Making such a large range of cuisines is very difficult to pull off, they do it very well.
