A popular Scottsdale Chinese food and sushi restaurant has opened a second location near downtown Phoenix.
Wok ‘N Roll, owned by restaurateur Scott Stuart, is now open in the strip mall located on the east side of Central Avenue just south of Thomas Road. The space was previously home to Siu Wok Chinese Restaurant.
The original location of the music-themed restaurant on Miller Road opened in June 2018. Now, almost three years later, the local business has expanded.
“Wok ‘N Roll combines two of my passions: great Asian food and classic rock ‘n roll,” Stuart said in a news release about the new location.
The name seeks to combine those two concepts and at both locations of the restaurant; the decor is inspired by music and includes posters and guitars.
