    We were extremely offended when we have to pay a split fee after ordering cocktails and four appetizers - come on - just to put food in another dish - we should have just shared and not asked......................the food was very average, our kids like this type of food, but didn't like Wok n Fire's choices...................food should arrive at the same time - the complimentary birthday dessert was a nice touch. Too loud for conversation

    I've been to this restaurant several times and found the food very good, the service is usually efficient and the atmosphere pleasant and not rushed. This time, it took a long time to get our food and actually the appetizers and the main dishes arrived within seconds of each other. In addition when we asked to take part of our dinner home, it was actually thrown out by mistake. The manager responded well by giving us a credit and a completely new portion of our meal. I will definitely go here again because they obviously care about service despite the mistakes that were make by an obviously new server.

    Upon arrival the restaurant was virtually empty, yet the hostess first asked if we would mind sitting in the bar. I have no idea why. I declined, as the chairs were high and the tables small. So she took us to the dining room and led us to the furthest booth, right outside the kitchen door. I asked if we could have one of the many available booths or tables away from the kitchen door and was told they had a lot of reservations for those tables. I reminded her that I too had reserved a table thru Open Table. She eventually took us to a better booth. I'm still scratching my head wondering why a hostess would argue with a customer about such a thing. Who hires such a control freak!!!!

    Great food. The desert was not the best. The wines were limited and they could do better in a town like Wheaton. The bar server was just fantastic. A little more attention to detail and this spot will rock.

    Another great evening at Wok N Fire! Food was great service was great! The only complaint we have is that we couldn't get separate checks but even that worked out fine because the waiter divided up the bill at the end :) recommend the Papa's choice roll especially!

    Celebrated Father's Day at the Wheaton location after having lunch there with a friend the week before. Great experience both times. Some of the best Asian cuisine in the area! Our only suggestion would be to lower the overhead music just a tad--especially during day. That way, guests can enjoy conversation as well. Otherwise, thank you for making the day extra special!

    Food is wonderful/amazing!!! They have a major problem with service. The last 2 visits have had major service problems. Slow slow & slow!!!!!! It takes why too long to get food. Waitress had too many tables. They agreed service was slow by many sorry's and a free dessert for next visit--that might not happen for awhile. If you are not in a hurry, go and enjoy the food. Great place for kids early in the evening.

    I love Wok N Fire. We usually just get sushi, which is always excellent, so I can't comment on much else. Had the crab Rangoon appetizers this time, though, and it was not great. Tasted like canned crab. But everything else was great.

    We stopped here after finding ourselves in the western 'burbs around dinner time. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and the people were nice. Food was just "ok." The tuna poke appetizer was very good. Edamame were over-steamed and seemed oily to the touch. Pad thai was good. They make their spicy tuna rolls in an odd way...just a typical tekka maki roll that they drizzle with siracha and some kind of creamy sauce as opposed to mixing the spicy with the tuna. Not very effective and not spicy at all. I ordered Bangkok garlic with steak and brown rice and asked them to make it "extra spicy." It came out as a bland and somewhat oily brown sauce lacking either garlic or spicy flavor and mostly tasting like oil. All in all, mediocre.

    I dined before in three other locations of Wok n Fire. The ambience in Whaton is better then the Addison and Elmhurst location, but the waiting time for food is extremly long. In addition the garnish was old and dry. The server was nice, but it took way too long for the appetizers and main course to come out. There was no more than 5 occupied tables in the entire restaurant....

    I keep on going here hoping that the experience is better and it's just not... When it first opened up, I must admit the quality of the food was much better. It seems like a place better suited for small bites and a drink during happy hour. The entrees are subpar. Its so sad to see quality ingredients wasted! If only the food tasted as good as it looked. It's very inconsistent and they often get orders messed up. If you're familiar with what good asian food tastes like than this place is not for you! Very disappointing

    Service was friendly. Had 3 different types of sushi on this visit; all of them were very good. It's a great place to try sushi-large variety. Visited another location of this restaurant with a group a few weeks ago. Ordered noodles dishes and salads in addition to sushi. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

    The apps were amazing, decent drink list, very good maki roll. However, the food went downhill from there. For $25/plate, I expect the meat to be cooked to the correct temp (it was way overdone for "medium") and I think I made a better stir fry myself last week; there was nothing special about it. So definitely not worth the money.

    This is our favorite Wheaton restaurant! Usually we do their Happy Hour to enjoy half price sushi, but dined in very pleasant dining room tonight. Sunday, so was fairly quiet. Food was, as always, very delicious! Nicely presented and good service. Wine list very short, but they had my favorite, La Crema Chardonnay, so all good!! Will be back soon!

    Good appetizers and wine. We enjoyed everything but the spring rolls. They were a bit soggy. They wine was good however the selection was limited on some types. The bar staff was extremely attentive and prompt in the delivery of the food. Maybe I'm old fashion, children should not be allowed in a bar area. The music was eclectic and diverse. The little ones dancing around was a bit much.

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    Between drinks, appetizers and main course (we only did sushi so i can't vouch for other menu items) we had all of it ready to jump into the digestion tract in 20 minutes. Shortly therafter we were stuffed with an ample amount of rice, seaweed, shrimp and unagi sauce!!! The bar/lounge is completely separate from the main dining room, so there was absolutely no carryover noise. I wouldn't even rate the noise level as moderate, but not quiet either, i will call it QUODERATE noise. The only negatives were the hot green tea was not very good and we weren't given the option of a booth or table (the restaurant is unique in that every booth with exception of the corner booths are shared, so there are two tables, that seat 4 guests each)

    The sushi was very good. The service was fine, although they forgot to bring out our dessert after we ordered it. It was our first visit there, but it will likely be our last. Nothing about the restaurant stood out enough to make me consider going back. Maybe if I lived right down the street, but it isn't worth paying a babysitter to go back.

    I took my wife for a Valentine's Day dinner. I was expecting a quiet atmosphere, suitable for a nice conversation, but we were seated in the bar. Let me just say that the music (and volume) was meant for a much younger crowd. However, the food was excellent, as was the service. We had an appetizer and a couple of the specialty rolls. Everything was perfect. I would certainly go back again, but ask for the dining room this time.

    2 adults and 2 teens for dinner on Saturday night. 6:00 PM. Waitstaff solid and attentive. Restaurant seemed vibrant. Disappointing food. Not much flavor. Summer Rolls were goopy and wet- filling not balanced- looked like hockey pucks of mush. Edamame AOK. Coconut shrimp heavy on batter. Chicken soup tasted OK but mushy noodles and not much else. Hardly any chicken in Govenor's Chicken- overcooked. Beef Pho terrible- overcooked, 3 little slivers of beef. Small nigiri servings just ok- tuna and ebi. The booth we were in was just odd- not much room- maybe for 3 but not for 4. Get a table.

All Wok n Fires are a good place to introduce the "I've never had sushi" crowd to this dish. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and courteous. We'll likely go back here again.
