    This is one of our go-to spots in Elmhurst. We always get great (if not overly friendly - that would be our only "minor" complaint, if you can even call it a complaint) service, and we love the food. We've never ordered something we didnt like, and there's usually enough to take home for leftovers. Definitely recommend.

    Came for the appetizer happy hour and was not disappointed! Had the calamari, coconut shrimp, maki appetizer, a shrimp tempura roll (sorry forgot the name), an avocado roll, the California roll, the Boston roll, and spicy tuna roll. All came out very well and were impressive! And the price was reasonable for the quantity of food we got as well. I'll be back soon!!

    We have been going to Wok n Fire for years and usually it's one of my favorite restaurants. However last week there were a lot of families with small children and for some reason they were all grouped in one corner of the restaurant and we were seated next to them. The noise level was horrendous. Between that and the waiter who came to our table at least fifteen times to ask if everything was ok......... it was not a pleasant dinner experience. Not in a hurry to go back.

    We have been to Wok-n-Fire a number of times, always right before going to the movies, and I have never been disappointed. The food is great, the service is fantastic and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to grab a meal before watching a show or for anyone wanting to enjoy some great food that is not "stuffy" at all.

    Wok n Fire has remarkably good food choices, even for those of us with some food issues (wheat sensitivity), the sushi is great, the staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The main space feels a little cozy, which is fine, but the ambient noise makes conversation a challenge. I definitely recommend for the food and staff, although if you're looking for a quiet romantic dinner, or dinner out with the little ones, this may not be the place you want...

    We had a wonderful time. If you enjoy fish try the tuna poke. Definitely the best poke I have had in the continental U.S. We also really enjoyed their yellowtail carpaccio - we would have licked the plate if the restaurant wasn't full of people. Everything we ordered was good and we are already talking about when to go back. We got in Saturday night no problem with no wait. Just an all around good time with really really really good food.

    Dined on 1/3/2014
    My husband and I went to Wok'n'Fire for a date night and to also try a different sushi place in Elmhurst. I have eaten there before and always enjoyed their noodle dishes. The sushi did not disappoint and our server was awesome. My husband wanted to try some different sakes and he was really attentive and made some great recommendations. The sushi was fresh and really good as well. We also enjoyed the vegetable egg roles, Miso Soup and edamame. Definitely recommend. This restaurant is in the middle of downtown Elmhurst, so expect families and kids and a fair amount of noise. If you are looking for something more intimate, this may not be the choice for you. We sat up front at a bar table by the window, so it didn't bother us at all

    The restaurant is a bit "live" (loud) when it's busy, but I keep going back because the people and the food are excellent. Entrees are made fresh to order, and they have some very creative Sushi items... I didn't like Sushi until I tried theirs! I like very spicy food, and although their food is at a "nominal" spice level for this kind of restaurant, if you ask, they'll really kick up the dishes. Not only would I recommend this restaurant to a friend, I've taken friends there and have always had a good meal and a good time.

    Wok n Fire is conveniently located in downtown Elmhurst. It is absolutely one of my favorite places to eat. My mom and I frequently lunch there and it is a clear favorite for a local business lunch or quick lunch break from work. There is an outdoor patio, perfect for viewing the goings on in the center of Elmhurst and nice for a stroll after eating. I am a vegetarian, my dad is lactose intolerant... there is something for everyone. I have noticed families and diners out on special occasions. Food is fresh and delicious. Service is friendly. Great specials. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    I had Groupon to try this restaurant. I started off with a Jade Dragon which I never had before and it was very good. Next was the Chicken Lettuce Wraps. The seasonings gave it a delicious taste and was enough for a meal. My favorite dish is Lad Nar and I usually order them with crisp[y noodles. The waiter, and he is another story, explained they come slightly crispy alrerady. He was correct and it was probably the best I ever tasted. I was skeptical about getting steak but he said it was very tender. He was right again. By this time I needed another drink and tried the Sake Sangria. Another very tasty drink. As for the waiter, I guess you can tell he was outstanding. Very knowledgeable and attentive even though it was busy when I was there

    The restaurant was much smaller than expected. The restaurant was packed when we arrived so it was a bit awkward that we had to stand near tables where everyone was dining plus we kept knocking into people as diners were leaving the restaurant. The location in Addison has a bar area however the location in Elmhurst does not. It would have been nice to have a drink while waiting to be seated. Once seated, the food and service was good. The waitress did a really nice job and did not try to rush us out. We stayed as long as we liked. Other than the lack of waiting area, we had a really great time!

    Good local stand-by downtown Elmhurst restaurant. Parking is problematic as the street and parking across the street is not laid out too well and there are limitied spots. It's easier just to go to the public garage which is free. The food is always good but this time the eservice was a little spotty. Nice enough waitress but I asked for napkins for our appetizer and they never came. asked again for our entree and then we got the naplins. They should really dim the lights slightly as they are halogen spots and you feel your on stage. The wine is a nice pour and the beer preety good value. It wasn't as cold as I like it but usually it is, so maybe they just loaded the freezer. They ventured into sushi/sashimi as well as maki roll.
