Pan-Asian
Our pan-Asian menu gathers influences of cooking styles from all around Asia; including Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, China, Indonesia and Vietnam. The design of the restaurant is influenced by some of our favourite places to eat and drink, it takes its cues from the street food ‘Hawker’ markets of Penang mixed with the reclaimed building feel of Budapest’s ruin bars. These places both have a magical feel, something that we’ve tried to recreate for the people of Blackpool to enjoy. Penang, Malaysia is an eclectic melting pot of various food styles, with influences from Indonesia, Thailand, India and China, dishes such as soup ramen and stone-baked donburi are two great examples of the depth in flavour, which can be created when different styles come together.

    Wow, the food at Wok Inn is amazing and not you typical south East Asian fair. Truly inventive dishes, some regional, some fusion but all blew us away with flavour, textures and presentation. Highly recommended, you have to book a table here.

    Best restaurant in Blackpool by a MILE. I’d go as far as to say it’s one of the best in the north west. Always beautiful food and the staff can’t do enough for you. Fresh produce and the drinks are also high quality. Can’t recommend enough - we will be back

    Had a lovely meal on date night. Can’t believe it’s only the second time we’ve visited - we said we must come again soon as really enjoyed the food and we want to try different items. It’s so nice inside, a really fun, colourful environment and the staff are all lovely. Thanks for a nice evening

    Second visit and really pleased once again. Was our anniversary and the staff couldn't be more helpful and mentioned the celebration a couple of times during our time there. They food is exceptional with plenty of choice for those wanting a large meal or smaller plate. Would recommend to anybody visiting Blackpool.

    We went for my dads 60th which I informed them of, they decorated the table and did a Happy dessert for no extra cost and really made it special. I have always loved Wok Inn but now I love them even more.

    Food came out really quickly barley 10 mins after we ordered .. it was just warm ..satay sauce on chicken was gloopy ..lollipop chicken was best of the lot .. have been here before and really enjoyed it but last night was just off
    Michael Wan's Wok InnResponded on 27 December 2023
    Thanks for coming back to see us again. That's great that the food came out so quickly, everything is cooked fresh to order so it's strange it wasn't hot when arriving at your table so apologies if this was the case. Had you mentioned it to one of the staff they would have asked the chef to cook a fresh dish immediately but sadly there is little we can do after you've left. The satay sauce is very thick, this is usual. Great to hear you enjoyed the lollipop chicken :-)

    I wish I could give more stars. We came here last year and went again to see if it was still good and it might be one of my favorite restaurants to go to. If you go to this lovely restaurant and you like ramen; I'd recommend to get the ramen with sweetpotato. I'm not sure what they do with this dish in the kitchen but it was absolutely perfect in every way.

    The Wok Inn is a firm favourite of ours. This latest visit was to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We received a call from the restaurant a few hours before our reservation to wan that due to a few Christmas parties that evening the restaurant was liable to be a bit noisy - much appreciated. But we borrowed a bit of the ‘lively’ ambiance and had a great evening. Wonderful food and the best customer service. We’ll be back! Thanks!

    We had been looking forward to visiting this place for a while based on reviews and as we were going to a show in town decided to get an early dinner here. Walking in the place looks very interesting and eclectic just like the photographs, unfortunately this was the highlight of the visit as the food was appallingly bad. We ordered the pan fried gyoza, which turned out to be a plate of square undercooked dumplings stuck together that had never seen a pan. Satay chicken that should have been on a dessert menu with the amount of sugar it contained and second bite being a large piece of gristle ended that dish for my partner. Finally on to the chicken massaman, which bore no resemblance to any massaman we have ever eaten, it was chicken in a gloopy sauce overloaded with cornflour and something you might expect from a bad Chinese takeaway. The only good point was the Roti Canai which was passable. For reference, over the last 50 years we have lived in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Pakistan and have spent time in Japan and China
    Michael Wan's Wok InnResponded on 6 December 2023
    Thanks for coming to try us, your review comes as complete surprise! We take feedback seriously so please see below: Having spoken to staff and checked CCTV, we can see they did check back during the meal and when plates were cleared but nothing was mentioned at these times. The skewers and Massaman are two of our most popular dishes but had we known they were not to your taste we would have happily suggested alternatives. Recipes differ greatly from region to region so we understand if they're not the same as you were used to. The gyozas are pan fried but we apologise if they were not cooked enough for you, we could have done a fresh batch, for longer. We just wish you'd given us the chance to rectify the problem so you left happy, rather than leaving us a business-damaging 1* review.
