Restaurant Review: Wok to Walk

Details: Located at 684 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10017. Official site is https://www.woktowalk.com/us/

Score: 6/10

Wok to Walk is an Asian-y American fast food chain that serves primarily fried noodles. Specifically, all the noodles are stir fried in a wok.

Like most fast casual places, you pick your carbohydrate first. In this case, it’s going to be some kind of noodles or rice. Then you pick your sauce and then you pick your additions. Something they don’t make obvious is that the dish comes with some shredded cabbage mixed in already, so you already get some vegetables.

The biggest issue is the pricing. The noodles by themselves cost about six dollars. Each add-on starts at about $1.70 and goes up depending on what you order. Most of the proteins are around three dollars. The issue here is that without add-ons, it’s a pretty bare bones meal. With add-ons, the price of your meal could easily go up to fifteen, maybe twenty dollars. This is way too expensive for a fast casual lunch in midtown Manhattan. The serving size and quality of food is also lacking. You’re better off just looking for a Chinese takeout place and getting a greater variety of food for a cheaper price.

This location had a few seats in it for you to eat in.

Service was fine.

Overall, this place is not worth going to in New York City. Wok to Walk is a very franchised take on American style Chinese takeout food. The issue is that in New York City, there are a ton of actual Chinese takeout places that serve a similar type of food at about the same quality, but for a lesser price and a larger serving size. Wok to Walk is no where near as competitive and is inferior in almost every way compared to your average New York City Chinese takeout place. The only thing that Wok to Walk is superior in is that it is a little cleaner and the service people are a little nicer and more fluent in English.
