Wok Wok - tasty Southeast Asian in Chinatown

churros | Oct 30, 201509:44 AM

Had a great meal here recently with a group. Wok Wok is a relatively new Southeast Asian restaurant located lower level at 11 Mott Street in Chinatown. The overwhelmingly large menu reads like any average Asian fusion restaurant in the city, but the food that we had was actually quite good.

I can't really speak to authenticity, but I enjoyed every dish. The seasoning and heat were at good levels, the kitchen clearly has good wok skills (good wok hay in the stir-fried dishes), and the dipping sauces offered with each dish were very tasty.

Dishes we had included roti canai, mango salad (similar to Thai papaya salad), stir-fried water spinach, beef rendang (good flavors, meat could have been more tender), char keow teow, and a few others. My favorites were the mango salad, the water spinach, and a fish dish recommended by the waitress.

Decor here is a step up from most Chinatown restaurants, and prices are slightly higher. Service was adequate. I probably would never have stepped foot in this place myself because of the too-large menu and basement location, but I'm glad I did.
