Disappointed in the quantity of food. I really could have eaten 2 meals and that is not common for Chinese food. I’m giving it two stars simply because the price was outrageous for the amount of food. I did not order sushi. I think I...ordered sweet and sour pork or Mongolian beef or something and I was still really hungry when I left. Sadly. Quality was acceptable. To top it off the relentless nipping at me about my mask was incredibly irritating. I won’t go back.More

I think this gentleman may have the wrong restaurant. We constantly hear how much food we give and the number of take out boxes with left overs will attest to that.. We also don't have either sweet and sour pork or Mongolian beef on our...More

Last week, I arranged a going away dinner for eight of us at the Hot Wok on main street Coco, Costa Rica. I coordinated with the restaurant prior to and selected a "special" menu to be served family style, which included Egg Drop Soup, Sweet...& Sour Pork, Beef & Broccoli, Chicken & Pork Fried Rice, Beef Chow Mein and a Filipino Dessert. We agreed on a price per person of 13,900 colones or roughly $22.68 per person. Once the food started coming out, the service was excellent and the food was not only delicious, but there was so much, that everyone had a take out box to go. So, a special thanks to David Dion, his son, and the Hot Wok for a very nice going away dinner for Courtney Lercara! So, if anyone in Coco wants a family style Chinese dinner, coordinate with the Hot Wok in advance and see if they can put together a "special" menu for you.....More

Went during the week for the smorgasbord had a good variety of sushi rolls and good choice of Chinese food. The price was good for what you got. Would go again.

I've visited this restaurant many times and would return again. The service is pretty good and the food is delicious. They have a good selection for all kinds of taste. It's a mid-range as far as the cost of food goes, but it's worth the...money. The portion of rice on the main plates could be more, because they serve very little for the price that one pays and it's not enough to fill even a person like myself (I'm not a big person or a big eater). They have a new location, with closed doors and an a/c, which makes it more attractive. I strongly recommend it!More

Very disappointing. Went for the buffet Sunday at 3:45 opened at 3 so expected plentiful and fresh dishes. Several were empty and took 20 min to refill. Only a few pieces of sushi and rice wasn’t sticky so it just fell apart. Asian bbq ribs,...chicken were the same temp as the sushi. Spring rolls were not bad, but something between an egg roll (taco chino) and fried spring roll. No hot mustard, but I haven’t seen it anywhere in CR. I didn’t try wonton, but it looked more like chips with a very thin sauce. Refill if the sushi was better but still subpar for me. Only 2 other tables occupied with a total of 8 people including us. Total for 2 was $23.89.More

Did the buffet after a long day out and about in coco. Perfect. Quick easy and yummy. Some sushi, a couple really good meats, fried rice, chop suey. Great value. Also loved the Asian beer options.
