Asian Wok, the popular Westlake Chinese-American restaurant at 24389 Detroit Road, has re-opened after a fire shuttered the restaurant for almost a year last March.
“We had an electrical fire on March 20 of last year and it took nine months for us to get everything cleaned and returned and ready to re-open,” said Jennie Hung last week. Most of the damage, she said, came from smoke.
“We just want to thank all of our customers for their patience and welcome them back.”
Jennie and her husband John founded the restaurant 35 years ago, winning friends and a clientele of regular customers since 1983.
The restoration process was a headache, but well worth the wait, reports Jennie. “Everything in the restaurant had to be removed, cleaned and returned. And when it came back, every item was bubble-wrapped! I was removing bubble wrap in my sleep!” she laughs.
As a Chinese & American Restaurant featuring Cantonese, Mandarin & Szechwan specialties, Asian Wok also offers complete carry-out service. Call them at (440) 871-0880. Closed Mondays.
