I travel to Jaco at a average of once a month for business and have it in my schedule to stop for lunch at The Wok.I find the food and service excellent .After a meal I feel satisfied and with the feeling of just indulging in a very healthy ,fresh ,clean meal ,something that does not happen from your typical fast food place .
On any future trips to Jaco with friends ,our lunch will always be at The Wok.

Simple Chinese inspired food with other Asian elements. Run by a friendly Dutch guy who didnt mind to take time to share a beer and some stories and local information. Good, basic noodles with a lot of choice as to adjust the dishes to get exactly what you want. Ate fish sexond time here and was very fresh and nice, and simply but well prepared.

Slightly better than the other Chinese restaurants in Jaco, but really not that good. Reasonably priced.

Passed by this small and cozy restaurant by accident. Me & friend was lured by the impeccable & wonderful smell so we decide to go back and try their food. It was typical Chinese cuisine. Simple menu, Small dining area but very cozy at night with open kitchen and overlooked the Main road in Jaco town. The owner "Sir Lee" (He was joking around and told us that's his Chinese name but he was from Holland originally!) Such a great gentleman & we enjoyed both the food & conversation. Even though the menu is kinda small compared to regular takeout or eat-in Chinese restaurant, but I felt that's what makes the place so special. I like to introduced the chef as well, We believed she is from Jaco town and she wasn't Chinese but she sure cooks like one. We love this little place & will definitely go back in the future. Thanks again for the wonderful night Sir Lee.

My husband and I were in Jaco for 2 weeks and we were recommended to try this place from our neighbor, Nancy. We fell in LOVE with this place and the owners, Leslie and Lee. Please try the steak with stir fried veggies with the home made house soya. Also the shrimp with noodles and coco ginger is delicious. We will definitely eat here in the future. Love it!!!!!
