This place ROCKS for Mongolian Wok style BBQ. I am a vegetarian and it works great for me...as they supply tons of veggies and tofu so I never feel left out with my meat eating friends when we go there. You can choose everything you want to wok up for your meal and the sauces too. AND THEN THE BREAD...at the table OH MY GOD it is to die for. It's this flat sesame bread that is a bit doughy..but out of this world! I swear I could go there just for that!! They've got great service to. The wok chefs are fun and friendly, and the wait staff as well. Highly recommend!

You pick the bowls, you select the food to go in all kinds of meats, noodles, vegetables, and then the fun: you mix and match the spices/sauces to have them cook the food. From mild to spicy it is all you!! They will cook it as you stand and watch, they are fast efficient and you will move through. Service is attentive, usually very busy, no reservations so come early. I have eaten lunch at Big Wok a hundred times and really enjoy it. It is a favorite of the people at work. Parking can be tight. Can be a little noisy and there are a few TV's on with sports.

We were greated by a very friendly server who explained to us how the system works. We had been to other Mongolian BBQs but this was a very welcome place. Food was very fresh and the cooks seem to enjoy their job.

This is our 1st stop in Manhattan Beach (and in the South Bay)!

Usually on a Sunday for lunch, even though many others may find the place, the line for lunch is quick. This Mongolian BBQ Stir Fry is a lot of fun and the cooks are joyful and willing to clean to grill if (like me) you don't like the jalapeño laden aftertaste of the previous guest. :) (Be sure to tip generously for this kind service.)

LOVE the meat and veggie choices and the all-you-can-eat (while in the restaurant) aspect makes this one of the best options for your dollar there is in the South Bay!

HIGHLY recommend this place to everyone who likes fresh food, good deals, and lots to eat.

I've been enjoying this place for 20 years, since it used to be a tiny place 1/4 the size in Hermosa beach. Price is fair and the options are plentiful. You will enjoy this place but be careful of the rush hours when the line of patrons may exceed 20. Don't despair though, this place is efficient and you will have your food cooked in due course, properly. Add some extra sauce to avoid having it watered down by the chef's - as many people hand over a relatively dry bowl which needs the extra moisture on the grill.
