ZERO star should be an option.1. customer service was substandard. I felt like I was an inconvenience. (my review is based on taste, food preparation and atmosphere.) if you are looking for a clean and GREAT food STAY AWAY. 2. I should've left the minute i entered, as it had a mildew like smell. yet i gave it a chance.
I ordered my food at the front and the lady seemed like she was having a bad day which I dont care for. well, she changed my mind a bit when she offered me a drink while i waited for my take out, while i was waiting for my food i helped myself to a drink. the bar and the surroundings were FILTHY and the odor made it more irritating as it smelled like the floors had been mopped with black recycled water (cholera), and these smells were part of the atmosphere. the smells reminded me of dead waters from creeks, the aroma of "food" and mildew were interestingly. Restaurants should be CLEAN and SMELL good as the last place you want odors close to trash is where you go to eat!!!! service was quick. my food was out fast! great ? NOT. is not about fast service here, its about quality. again, if you are looking for a CHEAP quick bite and dont mind taste or odors then this is your place. if you are looking to sit and enjoy your food, think twice. The food was just disgusting :( on their defense ever since i moved to San Antonio a lot of restaurants here have similar problems :( Its hard to find good food in san antonio....Try the THAI HOUSE; on rittiman near i35..cons is far from home
I go to Wok Inn all the time! The hot and sour soup is the best I've tried yet. All the portions are huge and everything looks and tastes fresh. Some people complained about the dim lighting but I actually kind of like it, it makes the place seem more like a dive and they're doing the best they can with the building they're in. LOVE this place!!
Pros: awesome soupbar, huge portions, cheap, fresh veggies
Cons: old building
Yes i agree with the other person!
The portions are huge i was just in there on 8/10 and the food is hot, fresh , and enough to go around!
I have eaten in this restraunt since 1995 --my senior year in highschool and it is always good!!!
They have NEVER had delivery!!!! the previous reviewer is sooo confused!!!
Please go eat here it is well worth it!
Pros: FRESH HOT FOOD AND GREAT PORTIONS! CLEAN RESTRAUNT AND RESTROOMS
I always have great food and service at Wok Inn. The food is always fresh and hot and very affordable. I eat there at least once a week and love the soup bar. You could seriously fill up just on the unlimited soup bar. My favorite dishes are the sesame chicken and mongolian chicken, and though I'm not a big fan of fried rice, I do really like their combination fried rice on occasion. Also, their lunch specials are great and very cheap! As for the last review about delivery, I know for a fact that Wok Inn has NEVER delivered and his bad review is meant for some other restaurant and it should be removed. He clearly had a bad experience with another chinese place and it should be left for that business and he should really know which restaurant he orders from or writes reviews for! As for me, I highly recommend Wok Inn!
Pros: delicious food, soup bar, price
Cons: old building
We moved to this side of town and also looked for a great Chinese food, we eat it often. Wok Inn was great the 1st time only. We order for delivery and the orders got smaller and smaller on portions every time. When they messed up our 1st order, they were happy to give us a full free order for the next time. We thought that was awesome, so went again. Then again, wrong orders, mainly from there on out. The last time they messed up they said we had a credit for an appetizer of our choice, YEA RIGHT. Everything we asked for was told to us...except that one, and nope, not that one either...until we got down to lowest price appetizer and something that neither of us would ever order anyhow. The rice is over cooked, and you get more vegetables than meat. One time I got 7 pieces of chicken and the rest veggies. Not cool! Save yourself the frustration and find another place to try.
Pros: They deliver...but so do many others.
Cons: They rip you off where they can.
This has to be the worst chinese food I have ever eaten. Some of my friends love it but my first and last experience was horrible. We tried the location on Grissom and the rice tasted burned and the lemon chicken was a little to pink. (undercooked) Their eggrolls are not too bad but not good enough for me to go back. The low lighting seems to cover the fact that the place is really dirty and smells strange. I heard the new location is much better but I am not sure I am brave enough to give it a chance.
I decided to check this place out, because I'm still on the quest of finding a good Chinese restaurant in San Antonio. Alas, I'm still looking.
The first thing one will notice is that this seems to be a fast food restaurant, only dimly lit. By dimly lit I mean that one can barely see inside the building. It seems dirty for sure.
The food is mediocre, definitely not the 9.0 it's rated here. Avoid this place if you want good food. If you're on a budget, well, you get what you pay for and this place is cheap.
Cons: You get what you pay for
Wok Inn has a new location on Potranco road and the food is still great. The restaurant is amazing too. It has an open kitchen and the service is great. The soup bar is probably the greatest idea. Sometimes when they get busy i find myself full from just the soup! I recommend the Pepper Steak or Shrimp Stir fry.
Pros: Price, food quality, clean
Cons: busy lunch crowds and too far from my house!!!
I have been a constant eater here for nearly two years. The food is always hot and very tasty. If you have never been here, I would say try the fried rice first. My favourite is Kung Po Chicken, a little oily but good none the less.
Pros: great food, clean, great service
if you never tried wok inn then your missing out. they have the best beef and mushroom and kung pao chicken ever!! the service is fast and the portion size is huge. this is the place to be to get affordable GREAT chinese food.
Pros: good parking, great food, good service
I have been dining at Wok Inn for over 10 years now. The food has been consistent and the service has been just right! I eat regularly about 3 times a week at this place and I've tried most of the items and my favorites is the pepper steak, shrimp with lobster sauce and kung pao chicken! The food is cooked to order and the flavor is just amazing. The price is just right and they also have a soup bar (I go through at leat 2 bowls of their delicious Hot and Sour soup) that comes with the entrees. Its a place i would recommend highly!!!
Pros: relaxing, inexpensive, clean
Cons: none, nada, zip
I was craving Chinese but not the crowds that usually come with the buffet style place, so I decided to try Wok Inn, it seemed nice, quite and clean. Too bad the service was really lousy and the guy working the register was very rude.I Thought that he was going to tell me "No Soup for You"(Seinfeld). The food did outweigh the bad service but not by much.
Pros: good parking , quite
This place has the best beef broccoli. I'm not too much of a Lemon chicken person but my wife loves it! Actually everything they make is fresh and tasteful. Also, Wok Inn is a great value if you come by yourself or with the family. They are priced fairly and their portions are perfect, sometimes for two people. They have daily specials and they have an awesome soup bar thats included with the food. The place is located in the Great Northwest Shopping center off Grissiom road and Timberpath. Its about 3 miles down from bandera going to Loop 1604. It may seem like a hole in the wall but the place is clean and they have a friendly staff. Perfect place to sit down, relax and enjoy great food, both for dine in and take out.
Pros: convenient, good price, best food
