Just over a year after its opening, Woky Ko: Kauto on Queens Road in Bristol has been relaunched with a new name and new concept.
Woky Ko: Jing Xu is a Bristol incarnation of China’s siu lap dong-style restaurants, which are informal hangouts serving spit-roasted meats. As well as the rotisserie treats (think glazed duck and char siu pork) noodles are a key part of the menu, which also features small plates.
Expect a faster pace here than before as the focus has shifted onto feeding diners top-quality Chinese food with quick turnarounds – ideal for those after a quick meal with no time to waste. The vegan and veggie offering is solid too, owner and former MasterChef contestant Larkin Cen tells us, and there is beer and wine on offer for those that do have time to hang around.
