This restaurant has a good variety of Asian faire. I personally enjoy their sushi rolls. It is always a nice experience at this location.

I used to love this place but the last two times the quality of food hasn’t been that great. The crab roll appetizers didn’t taste fresh and the slaw was browning. The fantasy roll didn’t seem fresh either. The St. Charles roll was pretty good and remains my favorite roll there.

Excellent eating experience.. from walking in the door and being greeted by employee, seated and drink order taken, was maybe 5-10 minutes. Meal was served quick and excellent taste. Server was very friendly and helpful.

Really good. A little on the pricey side for us, but we loved everything, so worth it once in a while. Sushi was good, WOK dish was good, soup excellent. Good service. Will go back.

Had very poor service, our server, Melissa, came to take our order and didn't return until we were done with the meal when she simply asked if we needed a box. We never got drink refills, never were asked how our food was during the meal. Not sure I will return to this location.

Great food as always, very poor service... we weren’t greeted for over 15 minutes then our server pretty much disappeared for the entire time. The manager served us more than our server did. Very unfortunate...

We have been to this Wok n Fire many times but we felt it wasn’t as good as it has been in the past. It seemed like we were being rushed out with our food coming in 5 minutes! The sushi was much smaller but more money! They are starting to overprice their food. Not sure if we will be back. It wasn’t bad but there are better places out there.

I've been there a few times now, and most recently with my sons for a family birthday celebration. Kristen has been our waitress twice and she goes above an beyond to exceed expectations. So a personal thanks to her for making my son's birthday extra special. The food was amazing as always too.

There was a piece of hair in my sushi roll and they gave me a roll I didn’t order. Thankfully I don’t have any allergies and was able to eat it.

I’m sad as they have changed their menu. As wait staff stated there was not a lot of changes...there really is. And never offered to recreate our favorites for us. Their focus seems to be geared more towards sushi now. If that is your thing, you are in luck!

Also dinner prices have increased exponentially. We visited frequently and have always had great experiences, but I don’t think we will be returning.

We planned a surprise dinner for my sister. The staff was very accommodating in helping making it a surprise. They also brought out a free dessert for her with a candle. It was a little dark in the restaurant but the ambience was very lovely. The woman’s bathroom definitely needs to be fixed up a little bit. Most of the stall doors are broken with screws in place of the closing fixtures.

Fabian was our server and provided a best of menu review quite fast but complete. Food was great for wife and me and one of our guest, but his wife didn't feel that the Kao Pow (sp) was up to tasting good. Will go again though!

We were very disappointed in the new menu. It has been condensed down to one two sided page which means the print is so tiny that it is almost impossible to read with the low lighting. There are also missing items that were some of our favorites. Very loud. Hard to talk. Disappointing. We meet another couple there regularly and were all VERY disappointed with the new menu. The size of the print is the worst part of it.

I added a special request to not be handed the wine list as a member of our party was a recovering alcoholic, and tends to cheat. Once we got to the restaurant and I told them my name for the reservation, & the host made sure the wine list was taken out very discreetly and I was very pleased because it was Mother's Day and they were very busy!! Thank you for not making that awkward, it definitely helped make Mother's Day a little less stressful for everyone!

Went to an early dinner because we had small children. We ended up staying longer than expected and we had a wonderful time! I think our server’s name was Amanda...she was excellent! The service, food, & atmosphere were all great! The staff was especially patient with our 2 year old who liked to get up from his chair and stand. The restaurant was packed but all the servers were pleasant and smiling! This will bring us back again!
