I recently tried WokChow based on its generally positive reviews and convenient location. My boyfriend and I went for lunch and although the restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was pleasant, the food just wasn't anything to rave about. We started with an order of potstickers, which I hear, tasted fine. I ordered the "Vegetable Feast" and my boyfriend ordered "Lo Mein with Beef." My food was just alright- the quality was fine but it had an unfamiliar aftertaste of sorts. His, was not very good at all. He said that his beef tasted old and his lo mein had a weird flavor that permeated the whole dish. And he knows the subtle taste of less than fresh beef...the guy is a self proclaimed cow connoisseur. Unfortunately, he has the same "old tasting beef" complaint more than a few times since we moved to Knoxville from out west, and we can't figure out why it seems to be a local issue with many restaurants. If you do want to give this place a try and you go for lunch, definitely get the lunch portion. It seems to be a much better value. Also, if I remember correctly, it was cheaper to buy sodas instead of water. I don't like that kind of arm twisting.
