Inspired by the Feng Shui balance of fire, water, wood, metal, and earth, Iron Wok Asian Bistro unifies a diversity of fresh, imported Asian herbs and spices to create its multifarious pan-Asian menu. According to the Asian custom, Iron Wok dishes are served family-style, meaning that diners can amicably bite into appetizers of crispy butterfly mango shrimp ($9.99) without worrying about getting pinched under the table. The namesake sushi roll mimics Iron Wok's artfully arranged dishes in mini form, painting a palate-pleaser of pink tempura-batter salmon with eel, cream cheese and bright green avocado, drizzled with a sweet eel sauce ($12.99). Bite into beef platters such as Mongolian beef slices sizzled with scallions on handmade, fiery iron woks ($14.99), or sample a classic noodle entree of pad Thai ($10.99–$12.99) to practice edible knot-tying techniques.

Iron Wok pairs spice-laden plates with satisfying sips, sporting a full-service bar pouring a wide array of beverages. Diners may toast with frothy beers or smooth sakes, or elegantly link pinkies over cups of specialty tea. Raise glasses and clink forks amid Iron Wok's sleek and tasteful confines, providing ample nibble-trading ambience with a torch-lit patio and a modern brick, low-lit interior.

Iron Wok Asian Bistro

Adhering to the balanced energies of Feng Shui, the dining room at Iron Wok Asian Bistro is captivating in its blend of romance, whimsy, and chic décor. A giant fish tank and strings of hanging lights illuminate the dining room, casting a warm glow over the full-sized trees and brick walls that surround the dining room’s booths.

Chefs mirror this balanced approach with their cooking, blending together the artistry of presentation with the classic recipes culled from numerous Southeast Asian cuisines. They use only spices imported from Asia, adding a subtle zing to dishes such as their honey-glazed shrimp tossed with walnuts. Chefs even roll together a selection of sushi, and specially prepare a full menu of vegetarian dishes for those who abstain from meat. Their dessert menu incorporates traditional Asian flavors to create dishes such as their mochi or green tea ice cream and fried bananas with coconut pineapple ice cream.

Great place but it appears that the restaurant is in need of some general maintenance!
