We got here for a dinner. The service is fast and the portions are very generous. I got fresh spring rolls and fried rice with shrimp, all was very tasty. Worth it!

If you like Asian food suggest you give J-Wok a try. Had Thai curry, good portion, very tasty and in medium price range. The staff are super friendly and efficient.

I stopped at J Wok when I was in the area for a business trip. I ordered the Satay Chicken plate that came with a salad, chicken, and rice. The staff is very friendly. The waitress said that the chicken would be grilled, but would not have the typically "peanutty" sauce that comes the way others may be used to.... More

Great food and good potion sizes.Friendly staff and convenient location. Liked the outdoor seating. As a visitor I could take in all the experience of a new city by sitting outside.

We came here for lunch and sat outside. The service was good, and so was the food. Got the Pad Thai with chicken, which is one of the best versions I have had. My boyfriend had the fried rice with chicken and shrimp which he enjoyed as well, and we washed it all down with a thai tea. Great place... More

We were looking for a Thai place in downtown San Diego and found this place through Trip Advisor. The meals were very tasteful, and prices affordable. The service was very good and fast.

Went there with my wife and a friend. Good service. Nice place. Food was Okay, but since my wife and I are both Asian, we get a little more picky when it comes to Asian food. I thought it was a little pricey for the place and the food.

My wife and I recently ate at the J Wok in San Diego. This is a small Pan Asian, not Chinese, restaurant in the gas light district of San Diego. The decor is spartan as are the tables and chairs. No linen here. The menu is diverse from a Pan Asian stand point, (indian, thai, chinese) but the menu is... More

They don't have many choices on the menu, and be aware they might not even have the dishes shown on the menu on the day you visit. The food is OK but the drinks are terrible, a small bottle of beer will cost you $8 and a small bowl of rice (just steamed) will cost you $2.5. It is really... More
