On Monday, August 31, 2015, two of my daughters and I had dinner at the Wok Zone, an Asian restaurant at 179 Kernstown Commons Boulevard, in the Kernstown Commons Shopping Center off Route 11 south of Winchester, just south of its intersection with Route 37. The restaurant is next to the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater. Parking includes handicapped space. Hours are Monday-Friday, 11:00 AM-2:30 PM and 4:30 PM-9:00 PM; Saturday, 11:00 AM-9:00 PM; Sunday, closed. Both Dine-In and Take-out service are available. The telephone number is (540) 508-0062, and the Web page is http://www.wokzone.com/home.html. The Wok Zone has its own parking spaces, including handicapped. The entrance has no vestibule and the receptionist’s counter is on your right as you enter the single narrow room. The complete menu is posted on the wall behind the counter, and a video screen displays a sequence of pictures of the various dishes. There are no booths; tables are along both walls, and down the center of the room. A TV screen on the back wall on the left was showing a culinary competition on the Food Channel with silenced audio but closed captioning. The walls are yellow, and the interior aspect is pleasing. The menu is a single folded 8.5x11-inch sheet of glossy paper. Categories are Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Rice Plates, Noodle Bowls, Noodle Soups, Wok Zone Signatures, Kid’s Zone, Desserts, and Beverages. Cuisines represented include Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Sushi is not available. We shared four Crab Rangoons from the Appetizer Menu. One daughter ordered Japanese Teriyaki with Shrimp, the other had Orange Chicken, and I chose Crispy Honey Chicken; all of these were from the Rice Plates Menu and we had a choice of brown or white rice. My order of hot tea was a teabag in a paper cup of hot water; I would have preferred a pitcher of tea and a ceramic cup. Both daughters ordered Crispy Banana Spring Rolls, served with Vanilla Ice Cream as dessert. I sampled one, and it was sinfully good. The Wok Zone originally opened in Winchester at 819 South Braddock Street, near the Handley High School campus, on April 14, 2011. It offered the same Asian Fusion menu, but the premises were too cramped and the operation eventually moved to its current, more spacious location. It’s now on my Keeper List.
I have been eating here for two years. The owners are as great as their food is. Love it, keep up the good work and food!!!!!!!!
