Mister Wok Chinese Restaurant
Mister Wok Chinese Restaurant opened its doors to the public on Valentine’s Day 2004 and is becoming a household name. Entering into its 12th year of operations with its latest branch in the upmarket mall in Karen “The Hub”
Over the years the Brand has grown from strength to strength and has increased its capacity, menu offering, client base as well as captured new markets from the corporate and events world
The main cuisine offered is CHINESE with selections and ingredients selected specifically to suit and appeal to a wider population. The menu offers 28 varieties of soup alone and has almost 250 items on the menu with a separate bar menu. Additionally the menu offers steamed food and buns as well as salads and popular Thai dishes. The menu provides several beef, chicken, lamb vegetarian, sea food, in the starters and main course category with accompaniments and desserts
The menu has been refined in ensuring only the best ingredients are sourced and that are locally available. Given that Mister Wok is positioned in the premium dining range only the finest grade is purchased in every category (Sauces / Rice / Oil / Meat /Vegetables)
Over the years and through word of mouth the client base has consistently expanded and every month our floor records new clients. The constitution is primarily from the corporate segment and their families and has further included important occasions (Birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, graduations)
Our Locations are strategically positioned providing an alternative lunch to fast food for business lunches and family meals.
The market potential is very encouraging given the various PR initiatives and numerous banquets we have been engaged in,. This has helped demystify the Chinese offering, as regular Kenyan grown ingredients cooked in Chinese style. The misconception of reptiles and non conventional meat is being dispelled and a wider acceptance realized at our outlets
The Brand has featured in leading Electronic and print media and we are seeing an uptake especially at Mister Wok (Link below on AM LIVE SEPT 26, 2014 – Celebrating Food And Culture)
