Wok Chow
92 Majors Bay Rd
Concord, Sydney

The area has predominantly Italian and Greek eating houses, so this modern Asian jewel in the crown of Concord is one you must treat yourself to. On approach, you are immediately drawn in by the upbeat feel of the place with its heated outdoor area and stylish decor. We were greeted at the door and shown through the open dining room to a cosy booth table. The place has a great vibe, decorated in warm Asian murals and black contrasts with a vibrantly lit and funky cocktail bar.

The menu looks great and there is a tempting specials board. Owner Phil explained the dishes we were interested in, the specials and their ingredients in some detail.

Johnny at the bar suggested we try the cocktail of the day, which was a raspberry martini.  That sounded too good to pass up and it was truly delectable.

Although the choice was tough, we decided on the Pork and Prawn Dumplings and Chow Fan Noodles to start with.

The dumplings were very tasty and came served in a light soy sauce.

The delicious Chow Fan Noodles were rolled rice noodle topped with a slightly sweet sesame sauce.

We loved them both.

Then our mains arrived.

Our first main was the lovely Salt and Pepper king prawns. We were advised that these are a very popular dish at Wok Chow and we could easily see why.

They were so crispy on the outside and yet stayed succulent and tender inside.

They were quite a treat.

The Peking Duck Breast Pancakes did not disappoint either. This was a great share dish which you assemble yourself from the generous serving of crispy-skinned duck, shallots, cucumber and hoisin sauce. So delicious.

We witnessed the golden house-cooked duck coming out of the oven and being sliced for this dish so we know it isn’t outsourced!

The Black Pepper and Garlic Beef in a hot pot was simply melt-in-the-mouth and full of flavor. We loved this dish! Now although we don’t get too excited about fried rice, Phil persuaded us to give it a try. It was wonderful stuff and it tasted very different. We realised it had less oil and plenty of fresh herbs, making it an exceptional fried rice. In fact, the freshness of the ingredients really shone through in all the food.

As we just couldn’t manage dessert,  we ordered a lovely cappuccino.  The staff are very accommodating here and go out of their way to give the diners what they want. Specialty teas on offer can be blended to your individual taste, a sort of mix and match option.

With a little notice, Phil and his team can even put on a special banquet for your group if you crave a certain something and it’s not on the menu. (Think mud crab or salt and pepper lobster!)

At the end of the evening we were very happy and both agreed we would be back for more. It’s a top quality stylish eatery with a lot to offer.

Even the staff come back and dine here when they are not working, which says a lot. Fully licensed but also BYO wine if you prefer, Wok Chow seats around 40 inside and the same outside. It's open from 5pm until late every day and also do a popular take away trade too.

Newsflash: Wok Chow hosts a Mingles Night (singles and friends) every Tuesday evening with $10 cocktails and $5 wines to help break the ice! Other theme nights are also regularly featured.

BBQ and Hot Pot tables are also available for groups of 6 or more when booked in advance.

Special thanks also to Jo Lincoln from  redesignIT for arranging this visit.
