My husband and I were looking for an Asian restaurant and stumbled upon Wok Playa. We started with chicken satay, and had red curry and pad Thai. With two beers and a bottled water, all together was about 500 pesos. Pretty good deal.

Met up with friends and we decided to come here. The beef and chicken tacos are the best I had in Playa (for real!) and the shrimp/papaya salad was also very good. As I said, it was a very pleasant surprise!

We ordered two dishes, the red curry and one of the noodles and they did not taste anything like the authentic dishes. Reading the reviews I had high expectations, but sadly I was disappointed. The red curry was at least edible, but the noodles lacked...More

everything was perfect! The papaya salad to die for. The soup was an explosion of perfume that delighted the mouth. Fun ambiance with great live music. Impeccable service. Great prices. I highly recommend this little hidden gem, We will be back for sure!!!

It's a counter top restaurant so it's not a dining table type of restaurant if that makes sense :/
