Why we decided to open River Wok…

The concept of Indo Chinese cuisine came about because of the demand for above average Asian cuisine which is lacking at Robertson Quay. With an experienced chef, it gave birth to the idea of doing the best cuisine from Thailand, Vietnam, Laos & Indonesia. Easily identifiable and no stranger to the locals as well as the tourists.

Why the name River Wok…

We chose River Wok for the fact that we are situated right on the riverfront of Robertson Walk.  Wok is always associated with Asian cuisine which helps the customers to straightaway identify it as a restaurant serving Asian cuisine facing the river. Combining the two factors, we chose River Wok.
