Takeaways - good ones anyway - pride themselves on speedy service. However, Wok This Way in Walkley has the edge on the competition given its swiftness, hinted at by its menu’s invitation - ‘Come and watch us cook’.
The shop is open plan, so the staff prepare the food in full view. Our decent-sized order was ready in six minutes.
Crispy chilli beef Cantonese style was exactly as it should be - a generous portion of crisply fried meat in a sticky, spicy sauce.
Meanwhile the special chow mein had a little bit of everything: big chunks of chicken and pork with whole prawns amid freshly stir-fried egg noodles.
Prices are reasonable, around £5 per dish. So Wok This Way should be highly recommended. Go and watch them cook!
