I enjoy going here as it's consistently good, drinks are a bit pricey but you can order from bar to avoid the 10% service charge. Don't like how the service charge is added whether you enjoyed your experience or not! If they removed this, I'd go back more often.

I booked at very short notice on a Wednesday night and didn't expect to see many people , but on arrival was surprised to see the large restaurant half full . This I thought is usually a good sign and verbal reports I heard were all positive. When we were given the menu we realised what a great deal they... More

Our second visit and better than the first. Very busy Saturday night , we had not booked but manager was very accommodating in finding us a table. Food was very good and staff were on the ball keeping the food and drinks topped up. Really good Chinese meal would recommend :)

I am appalled by my most recent experience at the Wok Inn. I have been to this restaurant multiple times but have never been treated and talked to so rudely as i was on my most recent visit. Upon the bill arriving, the group who i was with discussed the 10% service charge that was automatically added on to our... More

Thanks for taking time to complaint at our restaurant. At first place, you turn up 35 minutes late and stay on for another 3 hours. We would not rush customer unless they are in hurry. They just have to order on their sit and we bring the food in front of them without hustle to queue. Our staff will ask... More

Visited the Wok Inn for my partners birthday. Food was outstanding. Freshly cooked and piping hot. Very attentive staff. Good value for money with all you could eat for £14.95.

What isn't there to like about this place? Fantastic service and food and going there is a real treat. It is really eat as much as you like and and cooked fresh to order. The chili sauce that you dip your prawn crackers in is to die for. No complaints every visit is a pleasure.

I was surprised by some of the reviews of this restaurant which seem to heve missed thevpoint of establishments such as this. It is not posh, it is not pretentious and it is not fine dining but it is good old fashioned Chinese hospitality. Their eat all you like menu starts with a heap of your favoutite Chinese starters (... More
