Great! Fresh Healthy Tasty and Fast

Outstanding. This is clearly where the quick convenient restaurants need to be heading.

My lunch choices on the road have been Timmy's (cardboard), fast food (blech), Subway (crap) and any random joint you run into. All of them cheap, fast, and convenient, but i feel dirty afterwards, and never satisfied.

These guys are doing freshly prepared meals in literally 5 minutes, with none of the typical cheats you see (no scoop and serve premade crap here) in other operations. The flavours are intense, bold, and actually have a depth of flavour and authenticity that impressed me (classically trained chef). The portions are huge, and the selection is decent as well.

I liked being able to negotiate the spice level from mouth on fire to none at all by talking to the servers about which dishes brought the heat, and the knowledge of the staff was far above what I would expect in a quick serve environment.

I'll be getting my takeout from here from now on, at last something I can be proud to bring home to the family.

Good job guys

Quick and Delicious

Have come here several times already, and haven't been disappointed yet.

Some of the other reviews may have been mistaken and clicked on the wrong wok box location, because this place is nothing like what they described. And while the stir fry's and other meals aren't extremely cheap, they're definitely worth it for the quality.

Favorite so far has been the butter chicken naanwich. For only 6 bucks, you get a donair style wrap, but bigger. Its a decent sized meal for anyone.

Didn't like the food.
By Jonnek of Richmond (7 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, January 22, 2011 - 10:23am [Take-out]

I read the good reviews on this restaurant in dinehere. So I decided to order a couple of items for take-out. I ordered the sichuan chicken and the penang shrimp and chicken. For their prices it is certainly more expensive than most Chinese restaurant. When I got home and tried the dishes, I was very disappointed. The taste is kinda weird sweetish taste and not all all spicy. There are lots of vegetable filler and very little meat. They should have just call it sichuan vegetable or penang vegetables. Anyway, I'm quite disappointed with this meal. Not sure if this is just a one-off because I read the excellent reviews below. But then again, it makes me wonder it those are phony reviews made by the restaurant owner himself. One nice thing nice about my take out order though, it came in those little Chinese take-out box made of cardboard. Its more environmentally friendly than the styrofoam takeout box in most Chinese restaurants.

I cant believe I've heard people rave about this restaurant. I've never had won ton soup with a murky brown broth before. The Pad Thai was sticky, over cooked noodles and again, the worse I've ever had. The size of the portions were small at best and the price was way too much.

This place is da bomb ! I need my noodles, and this place delivers, and much more ! There is no other place in Maple Ridge that cooks it up like the Wok Box. The only guy who can out noodle me is my son and he loves this place ! The one pet peeve I have with noodle places is not enough noodles ! The Wok Box delivers, you do not leave this place feeling hungry........they won't let you ! It's just too bad that I have to wait to drive home from North Van before I get to enjoy the Wok Box cuisine. We used to go to the bar to watch the Canucks game, now you don't have to, the owners got it right when they installed all those LCD TV's, you feel like you have your own. Ok gotta go, off to the Wok Box, game starts at 7pm. Out.

Very excited that the Wok Box is now open! Nice to have a tastier alternative to fast food!

I've only eaten the kung pao chicken so far, but it's very good. It says it's a spicy dish but I don't find much spiciness to it, so anyone can try it. Great service, very attentive staff and fairly quick service.

Definitely try this Wok Box!!

One of the better sushi places in Maple Ridge
By anituchka of Maple Ridge, BC (7 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 11:24am [Dine in]

This is one of my favorite sushi places in Maple Ridge. It is a bit expensive for a quick bite, but the quality and freshness of sushi wouldn't disappoint you. It is cozy inside and service is fast.

Rolls are full and moist, not too much rice.

I would definitely come back again. This restaurant is very conveniently located next to Save on Foods so it will make a good place for a quick lunch or take out.

If you want to go to a real restaurant , go to Shinobi but this place ranks no. 1 in my list of take-outs or quick sushi places in Maple Ridge.

Nothing special but good place if you are in hurry. Convenient location with lots of parking. Sushi is a bit on a dry side. Fast service. I wasn't too impressed and probably wouldn't come back again as sushi is average and prices are not cheap. There are plenty of other better places in Maple Ridge that I would rather go to.

Excellent sushi place in Maple Ridge

Submitted Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 11:16am [Dine in]

I have been to this sushi place many times and it didn't disappoint me ever! Sushi and sashimi are very fresh. Rolls are full and not to much rice.

Last time we went for our company Christmas dinner and ordered Deluxe Sushi and Sashimi party tray.

Everything was excellent. Sashimi was extraordinary fresh and moist.

I will come here again and again.

Ever their service is pretty good (unlike many other Japanese and Asian places). The waitress smiled and was quite polite.

Probably best sushi restaurant in Maple Ridge.

The only complaint I have is their benches, quite uncomfortable, but I guess it's their traditional stuff.

What was to be a special night with my girl friend turned out to be a disaster
By GMP56 of Maple Ridge (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, December 4, 2010 - 8:26pm [Dine in]

My girl friend and I have eaten many times at the Billy Minor Pub, this was the first time we went there after the new owners took over the pub, We asked for a long island ice tea but they only had premix drinks so we asked for a hand made one like we always do and found they wanted to charge 50% more for this and after receiving our drinks we found no resemblance to what we had ordered, we then ordered ribs and upon receiving them we found there were actually burnt giving a charcoal flavor to the hole rack, it was returned and we received another burnt rack tasting the same, the rest of the meal was very poor quality as they used poor quality caned pork & beans along with improperly cocked corn bread, it was doughy and soggy as well as cold in the middle, for what we paid I feel we should have been at an upper class restaurant,

I'm sorry to say we will never return to the Billy Minor and we only live a ½ block away

Favourite sushi place!!

Submitted Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 8:25pm [Dine in]

The food is delicious! I always go there and order sockeye sashimi, and it is easily the best i've ever tasted. They only use wild sockeye. I also get a miso soup and a seafood sunomono salad. And it's just way too good! I usually get one different type of roll each time or the special. Fresh oysters if they are on special it's so good. I always tip good because they make the best sushi. It's located right beside Save on foods so after you get grocceries treat yourself to some delecious sushi and be put in a better mood with the service maybe even being better than the awesome food.

This place has sooooooooo many TV's it's hard to not look at a tv when you're in there! It's a sports bar, accept it as that and it's all right.

The food is Sysco, run of the mill pub/restaurant food. It's a good place for lunch, or some wings and beers while you watch the game. Nothing to write home about food-wise.

I can see having a beer here. It's a good place to go if your in your dirty work clothing and want to have a pint or two before heading home. The food's right out of the freezer and into the deep fryer. Nothing to fresh and tasty.

Bella Vita Restaurant22471 Lougheed Hwy, Maple Ridge
Delicious fresh food
By fussyfussy of maple ridge BC (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, October 23, 2010 - 3:31pm [Dine in]

My sister and I celebrated her homecoming by dining at Bella Vita which we had appreciated earlier this summer at a women's group luncheon. We were not disappointed.
The food was not only fresh and tasty but it surpassed the ordinary. The escargot starter was very subtly enhanced by a melted cheese addition; and the avocado and shrimp was fresh and hand peeled - both for a reasonable price. We both had the prime rib special for $20 and each of us brought home half our meal, though we are hearty eaters. That for me is outstanding value.
Our waiter, Mirek, provided attentive service.

The ambiance is dated 1980-ish, but the crisp clean linen table cloths and traditional fine-dining setting of the table made us feel it was a special night. We sat close to the fire place which had a good fire going.
We have now had two good experiences at this restaurant.

Much Better than before

I visited the keg a long time ago and remembered it being quite run down, dark, and stale. After the renovations I have to say that it looks like a brand new restaurant. Finally the owner broke down and through some money at the place. For good reason too since you're spending around $50 a head once you have left. Thats a pretty penny for the locals. Just wanted to let everyone know that the place looks great and the food/service as always was great.

I loved the service that my husband and I got while I was there. Plenty of great option to choose from and the service was fantastic. The lady serving us explained alot about their standards and what needs to happen in order for a guest to have a great experience. It was quite impressive for a burger shop. Its good for kids too. Even though the sounds of screaming little kids can be a little distracting its nice for mom and dad to have a place where their kids can relax and be themselves and not have to worry about other guests. Food was really tasty and quick to be served I think we waited about 15minutes rounds trip from when we put our drink orders in to when we recieved our food. Totally reccomend it to anyone if they have never been there before.

Nothing Special
By tastemaster of maple ridge BC (7 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, October 6, 2010 - 12:52am [Dine in]

I frequent alot of sushi restaurants around town. This one isn't anything great. I had sushi/sashimi combo and a chicken teriyaki don. sushi/sashimi wasn't bad but exactly the same as every other sushi shop in town. Nothing special. The chicken teriyaki don was disgusting though. Way too much rice and the vegetables looked pre cooked and they loaded wayyyyy too much sauce on the dish. It was too over powering for me to taste anything else. Few chunks of chicken probably frozen not fresh chicken. If you want something hot do not go here. Maybe if you're looking for some quick rolls for sure otherwise give it a pass. The only good thing was the ambiance. It was recently renovated so it looked great. Service was ok too I guess.

Kitchen on the Ridge22375 Lougheed Hwy., Maple Ridge
Needs an update
By tastemaster of maple ridge BC (7 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, October 6, 2010 - 12:31am [Dine in]

Gotta say that they try really hard to make this place work. Its cheap but thats for a reason. The place looks like it was designed and put together about 50 years ago. Even back then there was better decor then what they have in there right now. Service really sucked. Not sure if they thought I worked there or what but I sat down at one of the picnic tables inside the restaurant and no one said anything to me for about 20 mins. I had some time to kill so I just played this out. Maybe they could win me back with some service. Well she finally got around to me and you know the service wasn't that bad. She was very nice and accomodating. The food was total crap though. Its more like Kitchen gone off the Ridge. Maybe my standards are pretty high but when I pay about $10 plus tax and tip for a sandwich I wouldn't mind having some comfortbale furiture to sit in and some better decor to look at. Hope the owner decides to update or else this may be heading out of the Ridge soon.

Terrible Food
By tastemaster of maple ridge BC (7 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, October 6, 2010 - 12:21am [Take-out]

Okay lets get something straight. I understand that you cannot really expect a whole lot from Chinese food. They usually have a crap load of starch, frozen veggies, and mystery meat. Its kinda like McDonalds. When you're really hungry it kinda tastes good. Well I was really hungry before I ate this dog food and it tasted just like it too. Im not sure what happened to the chef or the recipes but the food is awful now. It wasn't that great before either but certainly not like this. For a dish that is really unhealthy for you it could at least taste good. They need to taste their own food! I have worked in hospitality for years and know a thing or two about mastering a cook book. The best thing you can do is impress yourself and have a little pride in the food you provide to paying guests. They obviously missed the boat on that way of thinking. I will probably give it another try in about 6-9 months, but they have some serious issues to fix before then. Why can't we have fresh, healthy, and simple chinese food. Its not that hard. Wish someone would open something up like that.
