Market fresh, healthy noodle dishes cooked in quickly and served in Asian take out boxes.
I had lunch at Wok Box at Capilano square and found the service to be friendly, helpful and quick. I decided on the Chicken teriyaki with rice bowl and Coca cola.
When you walk in, they take your order, you pay, find a seat and they bring your meal. It wasn't too busy at 1pm, and my chicken teriyaki came in bowl with fresh, steaming vegetables and piping hot chicken. I wasn't super hungry, felt for the size, it hit the spot and it was under $11.00.
I will have to try it again, and sample something different on the menu. What I did try, I thought was good and service was quick.
It was snowing so we wanted a quick meal and I felt like some noodles. Went to the Wok box as we were in the area. Ordered 2 boxes and the portion was very small. Also the taste was not that great. You could have gone to a Chinese restaurant and got a much better meal for half the price. We also won some spring rolls as part of our fortune cookie. So we tried the springs rolls as they tasted like they were from Costco. Nothing special here. Will not go back and way overpriced as to what you get. Service was good and clean place.
We were in the area, eyeing the new Swiss chicken place for dinner, when we spotted the Wok Box, browsed their menu and decided to grab some take out and head home as the rain fell. Stir fries on rice and noodles sounded appealing and the four of us were hungry so we ordered a 4-6 person feast with 4 boxes, 6 spring rolls and an order of green onion cakes. The Butter Chicken on rice box was pretty good, a mild butter sauce with lots of chicken. The Singapore cashew chicken box on noodles was my son's favorite though it was more of a peanut box than cashew. Wife tried the teriyaki beef on hokkien noodles and declared it swimming in starchy sauce; clearly the worst box of the set according to her. My beef DAN DAN on hokkien noodles was good but extremely spicy, even without the hot chili sauce they give you on the side. Which is saying something because I can handle pretty hot foods. The green onion cakes were just doughy sides, nothing appealing. The damage was $48 after tax. Not a cheap take out meal. Overall we probably won't go back; it wasn't bad but I think we'd prefer ordering a few Szechuan dishes from a local chinese establishment for a quick and cheaper takeout feast. But I give them full marks for cranking out the food quickly.
We had ordered 2 Noodle boxes for take out lunch, our first time. With 2 drinks it cost $30.00 The value for the noodles is way to expensive when compared to a sit down Chinese restaurant. With regards to quality and portions.
Taste of the noodles is not bad, but the so called Kimchee side dish was not only horrible. It's an Act of War against North & South Korea, it just tasted really awful! No where near Kimchee would taste like & the cabbage was cooked (which is not supposed to be) to a point you can read the Vancouver Sun through it! Given that you can buy this stuff ready made at any T&T market. Did anyone in that organization taste tested this crap before serving it to the customer?
My Boyfriend and I go to Wok Box to treat ourselves. The food is not as cheap, but it's worth it. I usually get the butter chicken which they serve with naan, and I have to say, it's my absolute favorite!
We also like to get the Mongolian beef which we substitute with udon noodles instead of rice...mouth watering. Average meal for 2 people including drinks would be about 30.00. This gives you enough leftover the next day too!
Oh and if you want to try an appy, I suggest the Crispy noodle shrimp. It's actually a big prawn wrapped in noodles, fried and dipped in a szechuan sauce. Yum.
I tried this joint prior to Christmas.
My wifes meal was ok.
The only flaovur I could derive from my meal is when I squirted the lime onto it.
I e-mailed the restaurant as our meal was take out. They offered no explantion and said they hoped my next meal would be better. I then e-mailed the head office and heard absolutely nothing back from them.
Then I ended up on the Restaurants e-mail list to which I promptly replied to have them remove me from that list.
