K-Wok is one of the best and cheapest Asian restaurants around. It is by far the best near the U campus. Try the Vietnamese and Malaysian entrees, I've found that they are generally better than the Chinese (though the Chinese foods are yummy, too!) I personally think the service is great-- the owner is very friendly, and remembers us every time (we are very frequent customers!)

I really thought about giving this place a higher rating just because it's cheap - but I just can't. The food was below average, the service was below average, and yes, the prices are below average, I guess, but that's reflected in the food and service so it's not a good enough reason to bump up the rating. The Lo Han Jai had virtually zero flavor, the Kung Pao Tofu has a little bit, but not much. If you don't care much about the quality of your food, but want to fill yourself up, give it a shot, but be sure to keep your expectations very low.

For $5 you can eat spring rolls, rice, green beans, fried tofu in black bean sauce, watermelon, cantaloupe, and macaroons until you are super full! Most of the vegetables were overcooked but the green beans were excellent. The tofu and the spring rolls were very good: simple but flavorful. Be careful though when you pick your spring rolls; there are two kinds of spring rolls in the same pan; one kind is vegan (the wider ones) but the other kind have meat.
I was very happy that they had a vegan dessert. The macaroons were delicious and I made sure I stuffed myself with them before leaving.
The decor is very simple, even ugly, but the food is pretty good for the price you're paying. They also get extra points for being so close to the west bank and letting you sit there for a long time and eat as much as you want.

K-Wok serves a wide range of asian food, with quite a few vegan options. The vietnamese dishes are especially good, though everything I've had is pretty darn yummy. Better and cheaper (fill yourself right up for five bucks!) than the Village Wok, and closer if you're on the West Bank. Locally owned - the owner is always there, and is quite a friendly guy. One caution: order with some care. I've had eggs in dishes that didn't list them among the ingredients. It's safest to ask for all dishes without egg.
