Wok Box in Edmonton

Wok Box opened a location on Jasper Ave and 112 Street. I have eaten two meals from that location; both times my meal was anything but appetizing.

The first meal I ate was their version of Pad Thai. The Pad Thai was flavourless and overly oily. As well, the Pad Thai had no heat to it.

The second time i went to the Wok Box I ordered their black bean and beef on noodles (lunch size). First, the portion was a joke- it would feed a model, but not your average joe or average jane. Second, the bowl the meal was served in was so small that I had no room to manoeuver anything around in the bowl without flipping something onto the table. Third, the meal was so overly salted that I gave up after three bites.

I know the Wok Box serves fast food and to give some allowances for that reason, but both times I went to the Wok Box the food was subpar. I am willing to give it another chance if there are any positive comments on the Wok Box.
