So when i was told about Expresswok India first thought in mind was this must be something different having eaten at Wok restaurants before. So when Food Bloggers Association of India (FBAI) gave me an opportunity to try it i was super excited especially since it was opening of the outlet at Andheri.
I read up a little on Expresswok and found out it was take way and dine in resto. So this was totally interesting for me to have Wok food that too a take away. Something really exciting awaited me there for sure.
Wok Express is a chain of restaurants with Locations at Kemps Corner, Bandra and Now at Lokhandwala, Andheri. They pride themselves at being QSR (Quick service Restaurants) and as i w
ould found out in detail from a former college mate / room mate and the current operations manager for the chain (Pleasant Surprise & Happy point to find a friend Heading a Food joint..Always a good time Guaranteed).

The Restaurant is located at a prominent corner with adequate space for sitting & take away. Yes they do deliver hot wok food to your place (Provided you stay within 4 kms of the restaurant). The thing that made me like this place at first look was simplicity of the place even though it was the first day of the outlet it welcomed you with open arms and didnt have the Oriental flashy looks which can be expected at Wok restaurants. The Ambience also was quite calm almost zen like. The restaurant has 2 areas one area inside with take away counter & other a seating area outside. Since its a QSR the service is Self service here.
After a few mins. of taking in the ambience of the place i was asked for the food (Exciting Part!!). Since i am an omnivore i ordered for both veg & non veg items as well as a drink. Incidentally i saw my friend managing the work (A surprise) we did catch up with ourselfs till the food came and i came to know that the restaurant prides themselves in their delivery. The food stays warm for a really longtime (Thanks to packing so by the time you reach home and open it, it would still be very hot). The restaurant in keen to capture the segment of QSR in Wok food with 3 outlets and many more planned in future (Good times for all mumbaikars).
So here you can sit and eat or take away the meal to your home and enjoy the flavours. The wok food is special as their Executive chef has specially designed the sauces keeping Authenticity of the original dishes isn't that amazing. The price too is very competitive and you can have a filling meal at a cost affordable to your wallet.
|Hot Food it what they pride in!|
|Sticky Rice: Chicken..Oh so yummy!|
|Veg Sticky rice: I love it!|
While i was catching up the assorted sushi came in!! Sushi was totally awesome flavourwise and almost transported me to japan. Although the packing in which sushi is kept can be more customer friendly (in terms of ease of opening/closing the box). The Guava drink arrived which too was refreshing one. The Sticky rice which was served in authentic steaming boxes wrapped with leaves got me even more excited. Since i had ordered for both veg & non veg i was served a chicken sticky rice and and veg sticky rice. The Rice used was a special rice used. The sticky rice served to me can make anyone go awry (Especially the chicken one..Fabulous one!!) being wrapped and cooked in the leaf made it even more tastier. Veg Sticky rice was also yummylicious. The warm food like this on a slightly rainy day can make anyone happy it definitely made me happy.
|Sushi Time with lovely drink!|
Although i did try a fraction of their menu. (Trust me the portion size is good..was full by the time i had the rice & sushi. After all they do pride themselves in portion size too). If you ask me do i recommend it for you to try the QSR yes definitely its something which you can go repeatedly for!! Why as you get value for money and satisfaction of eating quality wok food in Mumbai (that too quick & home delivered if you stay close by or just sitting there).
If its Wok Food in a jiffy it is Wok Express India for you!!
