Wok Star Revisited...
Laurie and I were out and about the other day and we had a craving for some asian cuisine. We knew that we enjoyed the food at Wok Star during previous visits and we were in the vicinity, so we stopped in for a late lunch.
Laurie ordered the Thai Coconut Curry. She ordered the chicken and it was tossed with onions, carrots and fresh green beans with Wok Star's special sauce. It was nice and spicy as advertised! Laurie gave it two thumbs up!
I chose Cherie's Spicy Chicken with brown rice. The chicken was stir-fried in General Tso's special sauce, with fresh green beans, carrots and broccoli. It was excellent. The only fault I could find was that the menu called for sugar snap peas and it came with green beans. It was fine with me but some diners might have complained... Better to let the customer know that the kitchen was out of sugar snap peas... In any case, I personally would order it again...just like it was!
A couple of other items of interest... Wok Star serves beer, and during the work week, they have a 'happy hour' during which beer is $1.00 less than usual and 4 of the appetizers can be purchased for $4.00 each. Of course, nothing is too pricy here. Entrees start at $7.95 and the most expensive item is $9.00!
Laurie and I continue to recommend Wok Star. The food is fresh and very flavorful. Wok Star is located at 149 Kelsey Lane, Suite 108 in Lenoir City Tennessee. Phone: 865-986-0996. Website: http://www.wokstarasiancuisine.com/.
