This little asian fusion restaurant is on the side street off the main strip in Tamarindo. Trendy menu with Asian specialties with a Costa Rican twist. Our waiter was a young surfer who wasn’t very focused. However when the owner sensed our annoyance he jumped in and made sure the food was delivered correctly as ordered. They also serve good sushi

This place is owned by a Korean lady who really does understand the fusion options of the Far East. Many options and they were all good.

One night we joined some vacation friends for a super dinner. We held off but they went through 3 bottles of wine, we just had a few cocktails.

Food - my wife and I shared as is normal and are we glad we did. Large portions of really good fresh food.

Above average service, good feel to the place, lots of people think the food is good.... it is crowded when the sun goes down.

Any restaurant that tries to be pan Asian has its work cut out, as the foods of China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam are all very different (all of these countries and some more are on Wok n Rolls menu). Some restaurants pull this off well, but many stumble and just serve what might sell well and "pass" as Asian food. Wok n Roll sells perfectly acceptable food, but anyone who enjoys good Chinese, Japanese, Korean, or Vietnamese food might be disappointed, especially given the high reviews. In our group, we generally liked the sushi, but everything else left us scratching our heads. For example, my pho tasted ok, but it was pho only in resemblance. The good news is that prices are reasonable. Just go in there with curtailed expectations.

I visited Tamarindo over Thanksgiving and happily stumbled upon Wok & Roll on my second day and tasted real kimchi! I ate here several times during my vacation and was impressed by the service and quality of food. This isn't some greasy spoon Chinese restaurant; it's quality pan Asian cuisine. Proprietors are very nice, too.

I recently visited Tamarindo with several students from the U.S. The food and service was excellent, as was the conversation with locals and the aesthetics of the restaurant. I recommend this spot without any reservations whatsoever. They are real asset to the Tamarindo experience.
