First of all I am kicking myself for not trying this place sooner. The Korean Bibimbap is delicious as is the Mongolian BBQ. I didn't try all of the sushi yet but what I did try was very good. Great vibe at the place and I now consider it Tamarindo's premier foodie and hipster place.

We're exceptionally lucky to own a second home in Playa Langosta. As such, we're close enough to the action of Tamarindo to enjoy the scene, while still far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. Whenever we're at our home, our first dinner upon arriving and our last meal before leaving is at Wok N Roll. Now, we're familiar... More

My wife and I were looking forward to dinner here. After walking from Longosta we were pretty warm and sweating. Gal was nice and sat us under a slow w moving fan and brought us a carafe of water. We warned her we may need to leave since it might be too hot in the restaurant to enjoy any meal.... More

Having owned a villa in nearby Playa Langosta Wok N Roll is our traditional first dinner because we know it is going to be excellent, and it never disappoints. Candace, the owner (and mother) is a gracious and welcoming hostess, and always greets us with a warm smile and hug. Having read some of the previous negative reviews I'm sitting... More

I was worried that a restaurant that has so many different cuisines might not be good at any of them, but I was wrong...they were great!

We visited this spot twice. Both times food was tasty, however the first time, our appetizer was brought out with our meal, and the second time, I received tofu pad thai instead of chicken pad thai. Was disappointed that they charged me for the more expensive tofu pad thai on my bill, especially when I didn't order it, however they... More

There are several choices for rice based meals. Of course rice is helpful for gluten free eating. The price is reasonable.

The options on the menu sound good. But both the tuna in the roll and the pork from the Korean were far from fresh. Disappointing to say at the least. Waiters were friendly though.

Probably one of the worst if not the worst restaurant in Tamarindo. I would give it 0 stars if I could. Nothing is close to tasting like the actual dish. I ordered the bibimbap and it was completely flavorless. My husband ordered sushi and got sick. My oldest child ordered pad thai and it tasted like curry noodles. My 4-year... More
