The concept of fast Chinese food has taken Lahore by storm, with The Wok leading the way. With the most votes, our respondents loved how great the food was, especially given the economical pricing. It wasn’t overpriced, but it delivers on the flavour. You’ll see further down how many other restaurants use the same formula.
