Wok Express reborn as Chinese Wok

Wok Express has now become Chinese Wok.

Agrawal stated, “Research has shown that Chinese is the most popular foreign cuisine in India, surpassing all others like Continental, Italian, and Mexican. In line with this learning, and demand of customers who are actively looking for branded and hygienic Chinese food brands, we have gone ahead with the renaming (from Wok Express).”

“Chinese Wok has become more focussed on Chinese cuisine, and it was a natural progression to move to a relatable name that will have an affinity with the target audience. Thus the brand is reborn as Chinese Wok,” he further said.

With this new avatar, Chinese Wok offers an extensive menu that presents the best and freshest popular Chindian cuisine at affordable prices. The restaurant serves a variety of dishes, including fried rice, hakka noodles, spicy gravies, momos, chicken wings, soups, etc., or consumers can make their own Wok Bowls.
