This small Chinese restaurant with an inventive name has been in Cambridge for a couple of decades in Porter Square. It has all the basic Chinese dishes - won ton and hot and sour soup, egg rolls, ribs, dumplings, kung pao shrimp and chicken, noodle dishes, rice combo platters etc. The food is standard Chinese that is good and cheap...

Wok-n-Roll is a good choice for the takeout Chinese experience, or for a quick dine-in. It’s not a fine dining place; it’d be a mistake to make it the centerpiece of an evening out. The restaurant is comfortable, but spare. Service is friendly, but not attentive. The menu is not as extensive as in many Chinese restaurants, but it hits... More

I've been frequenting Wok N Roll for a few months now as my go-to Chinese takeout restaurant, and I have not had any major complaints. Food ranges from average to great, depending on the meal (not super impressed with their Won Ton soup for example, but their Sesame Chicken is excellent). Prices are decent, and don't find me grumbling. Employees... More

OK, so the chicken is similar to many places but what makes it so yummy is the sweet and sour sauce. Not the regular nasty duck sauce (is it really made of ducks?), but a slightly red sweet and tangy concoction that really does add to the dish! A plus is if you ask nicely they'll usually make off menu... More

I have been frequenting this restaurant for about 10 years......usually for lunch. Jim, the waiter, is very efficient, pleasant. Typically, I get Szechuan chicken, won ton soup, an egg roll at times, glass of water (not spring water) or tea. I'm never disappointed with the quality of food, cleanliness of the restaurant, excellent service. Location is in Porter Sq., Cambridge.... More

I have been a frequent customer at this restaurant for about 10 years. Service is prompt and efficient. Prices are fair and reasonable. Service is excellent. I usually order at lunch time Szechuan chicken with white rice, won ton soup, free tea, and am never disappointed. Place is very clean, nice booths, excellent large plates. Jim, the waiter, is always... More

Your run of the mill average chineese food. You'll be hungry again in an hour - but at least you can re-heat the leftovers.
