My first meal (of the two I’ve had) at Wok Express was an interesting one. With the fast growth of this brand as a chain, with branches across all the prominent locations in the city seemed like a cool bet for a casual Wednesday night out. What’s more? Their newest addition to the menu, that of sushis, prompted me to take things in my own hands and go try the food! Of the entire experience the four of us (me + 3) had at the Bandra (Pali Naka) outlet, the first thing I noticed was that the place was pretty nicely done up. Good looking high tables, low seating near the corners, a clean food bar area and well lit; basically at first glance, it made quite a good impression.
Anyway, getting to the food: the four of us ordered a variety of sauces. While the rest of the team may not have been completely satisfied with the choices of sauce in their wok (mainly black pepper), I really was pretty impressed with the sweet and spicy blend of my Kung Pao. In fact, when I tried the Chilli Basil sauce on my second visit, I quite liked that one as well. The aroma of it was definitely adding to the love-quotient for this particular dish. While their Wasabi Sauce was way below standards for my liking, their sushi in general (without the sauce) was a delicious treat. My favourite thing about the food had to be the fact that their quantities were generous, of the dish in entirety, as well as the meats in it. Both, the Ramen Noodles and the Whole Wheat Noodles were great to have; while I would suggest you skip the Boba Teas altogether, I do think that their mushrooms were just as well done as their prawns.
All in all, a foodie like me would suggest you try out the closest Wok Express near your place, and make sure you take notes from everything I’ve listed out for you as well!
