“Average”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

Been to Wok 1 on various occassions for lunch, most of the time the food tends to be about average, starters are not very inspiring but for the price I suppose you cant really complain, the fresh fruit is a nice touch. The evening buffet tends to have better choice and even though more expensive (£9?) it's the one I would recommend.

“Good Value for money”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

All you can eat buffet really good value about £6 per adult. Obviously you can go back to the food station as many times as you like. Depending what you like there is a good selection of food some things you won't like but most of the food is delicious. Drinks are a little over priced but you can't complain when you can eat as much as you like.

“Another enjoyable meal”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

An ordinary looking restaurant.

A large variety of selections available on the buffet and the cooking is at a high standard. Sweets are included in the buffet cost if you get so far!

Prices do vary during the week on both drinks and cost of buffet

Have eaten here regularly over the last few years. Highly recommended but don’t expect anything extra special.

“Wok an average Buffet”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

Another town another Chinese buffet. This is Wok 1 just near the centre of Halifax with a view up high looking down onto the streets. A large place set on different levels and quite comfy. Service a little too attentive. As most Chinese buffets the staff hover about waiting for you to finish your plate so they can whisk it away for the next customer. OK when they are busy but today there was only about 6 other people in so their attentiveness was a little off putting. They watch you like hawks. It's another one of these places though that sits people on tables close together although most of the restaurant is empty. I'm not anti-social but they sat someone on a table right next to me when 90% of the other tables were empty. Did they think I needed company. Lost a star here. Ignoring all this the best I could I tried the food. Distinctly average at best and not a great choice. There were two strengths of chicken curry which was good. Shame the chunks of chicken I had were tough and over cooked (at lunch time as well). Chicken satay sticks were different. Most of the sauces were thin and watery. Only one type of noodle and rice as far as I could see. Not much salad choice and on the starters the onion rings looked like the familiar shop bought ones not the normal freshly made ones I am used to. There were popadoms as well which was odd (although I tried them). The only thing I really liked was the spicy chicken bits. The rest was blandish. For all you can eat for under £6 at lunch it's not bad but could have been a lot better
