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

I didn't see one staff member smile in my time there. I felt like they wanted us out ASAP. Food was good. They brought out a platter for starters, then crispy duck with pancakes before the mains. The best part was the starter platter. The cost came to £100 for 4 of us.

I've been coming here for years and previously loved it. This visit was a bit of a let down. Service was a bit slow and 3 male members of staff stood at reception the whole time we were there talking loudly to the point that me and my friends could hardly hear each other. Food was ok but wasn't very... More
