|Lunchtime, Thursday 22nd July 1999,
Didsbury is reckoned to be one of the up-and-coming places in Manchester, and one of my
colleagues who lives there suggested that we try wok.wok for lunch. Didsbury seems pretty
well endowed with eateries and hostelries which all appear to have that certain
je-ne-sais-quois which youth and money bestow. Wok.Wok is one of them. Wok Wok at
lunchtime has a £4.95 single-visit, £6.95 all-you-can-eat self-serve buffet; five or six
starters, three or four main courses. The Dinner equivalent is £10.95, but they offer
approximately double the number of choices (I'm told - haven't tried it yet) Drinks are
(to my mind) expensive, with a 330ml bottle of Kirin weighing in at £2.75!
modern. Although we were almost the first in, the place soon filled up. Waiter and
waitress, three chefs visible in the kitchen area kept the flow going. Had the weather
been as good as it was a few days ago, we would have elected to sit at one of the
half-dozen tables on the pavement. Spring Rolls, Satays, Chilli Cod, Chicken Drumsticks,
Ribs - all were nicely done with the spicing done just to my taste - not too strong, but
still discernible. I have to admit I went back twice for starters, and, had we had the
time, I would have liked to have gone back for a second shot at the main courses. The main
course chicken, beef, noodles and rice were again well done.
This is another place I'll be visiting again: the meal is very good value, the ambience
suitably purposeful, and a pretty good pub next door as well!
We asked Wok Wok about vegetarian menus
