Professional chef Jon Villar has over 20 years of experience. He became the former head chef at Pj's Grill, Minako at the Met, Kopapa, Mber & Gammagamma Soho, and finally decided to open up his own pop-up restaurant Wok with Jon in Shoreditch. Jon works around the clock to offer fresh flavours, with a mix of authentic classic and modern innovative Asian dishes. His inspiration comes from flavours from growing up in the Philippines, and his later travels around Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

This experience surpassed our expectations. Flavours are well thought of, and we were so full by the 4th course but continued to eat. Jonathan is very hands-on and on the restaurant floor as much as in the kitchen. I would recommend giving yourself the whole evening and night, you'll be there from around 6.30pm to 11pm, its well worth the price and more.

We had such a wonderful night with Jonathan and his incredible food. I arrived after reading reviews saying the evening went on far too long but it was very different the night we were there - it lasted just over 3 hours which was perfect. Every course was absolutely fantastic but the highlights were probably the salt baked miso celeriac, the smoked jackfruit kofta and of course the vegan fry up. Jonathan himself is such a lovely guy and took time to speak to everyone and explain the dishes and answer any questions. As with other reviewers, we did leave incredibly full but I don't class this as a bad thing! The venue was also lovely - I would ignore those who have moaned about it - you're eating at a popup, not a fine dining restaurant. All the staff at the venue were great too and we really loved the garage soundtrack to the evening!
