We have been to Wok n fire before and food had been very good, with good choices. Recent experience was not good at all. Maki specialty rolls were decent, but for the price, main entree were terrible.

Good food and service. Music level was ridiculously loud with dance club type music, not fitting to the restaurant. Disappointing.

This used to be our favorite place. We went often. Service was slow and waiter hard to find. Only four tables of customers in the whole place. No more happy hour deal food. Sad

The yuki crab roll was bland, and the chicken satay tasteless. It was as if no satay marinade or sauce had been used. Won't be going back. I had dined at another location 2 years ago & the same two dishes were tasty & postively memorable.

Used to frequent here pre pandemic and have come at least once every 2 mos since it reopened and can say the flavor and quality of food has changed for the worse. Sadly, might not come back

Due to some negative reviews, I was expecting a long waiting time. To my surprise, we were seated early, the waitress (Kate) was super attentive and made the evening special. Everything was on time and my daughter even got a special treat for her birthday. Overall, great service and great food. The only negative was loud music.

Waiter gave away table when we went to the bathroom AFTER we had just ordered, and this was after we waited 15 minutes for him to take our drink order. Poor service.

We had a very delicious dinner! We liked everything we ordered. The spicy edamame and sea bass were excellent! And our server Ajay was prompt, polite, friendly, & very engaging! He made our dining experience quite enjoyable. I thought the music was just a tad too loud for table conversation. But overall, everything was great!

The poke appetizer was really good so we had high hopes. Our rolls were very bland. The fish and the rolls looked good but there wasn’t any flavor except the sriracha. Service was good, drinks were good. Just would probably not go back for dinner

Music is extremely loud and obnoxious for a sit down restaurant in South Barrington. Had almost a club vibe even on the restaurant vs bar side, very loud. Annoying. Rolls are B-/C+. Service was good, host staff very pleasant. However costs are outrageous for C+ Sushi .... will not go back even though we live in the area...

First time to visit, and we were pleasantly surprised. First of all, the cocktails exceeded expectations, strong, tasty, and with the right kind of ice cube for a bourbon drink! The food also was really delicious, and we live in Asia, so that’s a high compliment! Service was good, all the food came out at the same time. They seemed to be very busy, and the waitstaff visits were infrequent, which is not a criticism because that’s an industry situation now with labor shortages. Our waitress was working hard! We’d go back again. Pleasant surprise, enjoyable experience.

The food was absolutely delicious however I’m not sure if we have ever been treated so rudely by a hostess before. Besides that the experience was fine but when you start our your visit to a restaurant and the first person you come in contact with is very snotty and rude it makes for a bad start to your meal.

We tried a lot of different things, the sushi was just okay, we had the rainbow roll and the spicy jalapeno roll the spicy jalapeno roll was good the rainbow roll wasn't that great. The dumplings were good, but the lettuce wrap should be made with small bits of chicken breast and not ground chicken the consistency was off for me.
The entrees, My Kung Pao steak wasn't spicy the reason you get Kung Pao and lacked flavor, my husband ordered his Kung Pao not spicy and his was tasteless. My daughter ordered seared tuna and that was very good but the sauce didn't taste like soy wasabi sauce but the taste was still very good. That was the best plate of the evening

Our waitress was over ran with tables and was also bartending so we did not get the appropriate attention deserved. I had to send my main entree back 2 times for the steak to be cooked correctly. When it came back it was still not well done so I ended up asking the waitress to just take it off the bill bc at that point my husband was done eating his dinner. I was under the i

The food was excellent. The kitchen lost our ticket. We waited forever and finally found out the problem by flagging down the person waiting our table. The manager finally brought our food and made a joke about it being so late. When we expressed our concerns, he made no apology, no response whatsoever. I understand the restaurant industry is understaffed and that things happen. And when things happen, owning, apologizing, & asking how one can make it right is the way management should respond. The food was still incredible. The management and service was horrid.

Hard to hear b/c of noise. Got very cold at table but waiter had them shut off air after we asked (and he saw all of us wearing our coats). Food was good. Menu has been reduced.

It was just okay. The food quality has declined and so has the service. I realize it’s challenging to find employees and we were patient but we won’t go back.

We found ourselves out in a Barrington and had time for some late dinner. Was able to get a reservation and even able to sit outside. The weather was perfect with a lite breeze and 70 degrees at 8pm. Service was great and food as well. Perfect nite before winter hits.

The sushi here was delicious! It was our first time here and we would definitely come back. We booked our table through opentable, checked in, got seated immediately, server was attentive and the food came out quick and tasted fresh. We really couldn't ask for anything better, except maybe dim the lights a little bit more. It did feel overly bright for a darker ambiance.

From our drinks, appetizers and dinner the food was outstanding. Potstickers and crab rangoon were fresh, light and delicious. Chicken teriyaki and brown rice were perfect.

There was no way to specify that we preferred to sit outside, but when we got there, the outdoor seating was empty, so we asked if we could sit out there. It took a few minutes for them to set it up, but they accommodated our request.

We had 8 people, with split checks, but all our food & drinks were great. Our server was awesome too.

Great food and service. Originally our order of fried rice came out with the wrong protein but, our waitress quickly had another one prepared. Was surprised the spring roles were fried but, still good. Sushi was perfectly prepared. Enjoyed the Pho bowl and dumplings.

Visited on a Wed night, made a reservation, table was ready, no problem.
Took about 10 minutes for wait staff to appear, another 20+ minutes to actually get a drink, 30 minutes before we ordered, another 30 minutes before food appeared and didn't bring our whole order (a total of 3 items). Rarely checked on us to fill water, etc. and had no interest in providing dessert claiming there is no menu and they "only had a couple of things" to offer, it seemed hoping we would decline. Obviously short staffed and we really tried to be understanding...but for over $100 for 2 people, it was extremely disappointing. Better options in a close vicinity.
