Crock of shit, tasteless and poor value for money. Forget the nice packaging and lame oriental cues, and yes food is freshly prepared but ruined by total ineptitude to heat and combine ingredients. Very scant measures of meat (of poor quality, rough and chewy)….barely visible through the noodles/rice but worse than that burnt to hard black cremated pieces. Flavourings are weak, therefore doesn’t matter which dish you order, will pretty much taste similar. If you can, better to force it down quickly before the excessive oil cools down leaving you with a carton of lard. Dare i say it, even poor similar eateries such as Tampopo and Waggamama deliver better comparable dishes in a much nicer environment. If the app had allowed it, would have left no/minus stars, it was that bad!!

I love this place!
Was in Leeds visiting friends and we would always go here. Food cooked before your eyes, nice selection to choose from or customise your meal. Staff are pretty relaxed even when it's very busy.
Will be back when i'm in Leeds. Open one down here
I cant believe the first review for Wokon... Simply because I only yesterday had the Nasi Gorong with seafood and it was gorgeous! I've never been to a Wokon and as one of the reviews on here says its possibly only exclusive to Leeds but get it to Edinburgh please cause I love it here and its value for money!
For £6.95 you can pick a main, entree and drink which is ace because the mains come in the typical cardboard containers you always see on tv and it doesnt look like much but I could only eat half. My entree was prawn spring rolls I got 3 and my friend got vegetable spring rolls - 2 which were huge jumbo ones...
Its a small casual seating area but who cares when the food is this good - its clean, the staff are friendly and efficient and the food is fantastic and its such good value for moeny... Im kind of hoping they dont expand to Scotland because I'll be in here everyday!!!
Cannot recommend it enough, woking brilliant!
The place looks nice on the outside. Prices are good as well.
Unfortunately the taste was quite horrible! Portion of Nasi Gorang rice was tasteless and watery. No real spices added. Teriyaki Beef noodles quite fatty and very very chewy. Not very good but better than the rice!
One to avoid.
Wokon (I think) is exclusive to Leeds at the moment, but that probably won't be the case for long.
Wokon offers a selection of noodle and soup dishes, along with side dishes and meal deals. Everything is cooked to order so whether you're eating in or out you know the meal is fresh and hot.
The absolute best thing about Wokon is the portion sizes. This may be a little ill-judged from a business perspective, or maybe my girlfriend and I don't eat a lot, but one box of Noodles with a couple of sides is by far enough for two! And at a fiver a box you can't go wrong.
The menu is good, some may find a little restrictive but you can make your own meal based on their selection of ingredients.
Overall Wokon is a great little noodle bar that also do deliveries to the Leeds area. Recommended.
One of the best places in Leeds to eat. Cheap, fresh food, good portions. Great if you’re looking for somewhere to eat with friends and have a catch up, with a really relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. There are set meals you can choose from or you can mix and match your own - choose your own noodles, vegetables, meat and sauce. The meal for two they do is good also - two starters, 2 main meals, 2 drinks and prawn crackers for just under £13, which I think is great. I would recommend this place to everyone!
we called in this place for a quick bite and couldn’t beleive what good value it was. the food is prepared fresh and you have so much choice and variety you cant go wrong, the portions are a very good size for the price you pay. they even have (or had) an offer for 2 starters, 2 mains drinks and prawn crackers that did me and my girlfriend great. definetly a good place for a quick lunch if your in town, not the sort of place you’d got for an evening out. very tasty and filling, i’m defo going back.
