“Loved this place!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

The food was amazing. Pad Thai was delish! They don't have a liquor license yet but regardless it is well worth it.

“Great cheap eats”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Great ambiance and service and a tasty menu. I got (and loved) the pork sandwich, which was like a banh mi, but without the carrot and cucumber. We'll definitely be going back next time we're in San Diego!

“Not as good as lotus thai but cheaper”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Nice wings, poor dumplings. Very average chow mein and an ok red curry.
If you are not picky about your asian food and are not in a hurry then this place is alright. If you are then I'd not bother. I do think San Diego is way behind in most asian cuisine. Gaijin and red pearl are way better. Distinctly average..

“Wonderful Asian food in a calm setting”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

This place is in the Gaslamp district, which is full of raucous places, but J Wok is a calm small place that serves really good Asian food at very reasonable prices. Also does take-out.
