A bit more about our restaurant
WokChow is Knoxville’s best place to enjoy your favorite Asian Dishes, whether it be Teriyaki Chicken, Beef Lo-mein, or many other items, WokChow has it! Serving Dine-in, Take-out, or Delivery, we make it easy for you to get your Asian fix.
WokChow is Fast Casual
This “Fast-Casual” style of dining strips away the uptight regimen and expense of traditional full service restaurants while allowing you the same quality food at your own pace. Diners order at the front counter, get their drink cups, fill up with Coca-Cola or freshly brewed tea at our drink station, and pick a table. We’ll bring the food out when it’s ready.
So come in for a quick bite ( food is typically out 5-10 minutes during lunch after ordering), or sit back and enjoy a bottle of wine in our elegant dining hall and catch up with friends.
The only rule is to enjoy yourself.
WokChow is locally owned and operated
WokChow is owned and operated by Timothy Joseph, who began his career at age 16 in the kitchen of Altruda’s Italian Restaurant. After graduating High school, he enlisted in the US Marine Corps where he served as a combat engineer. When returning, Joseph became kitchen manager for a Connor Concepts restaurant. Soon he was employed by J. Alexanders Corporation where he worked as Executive Chef for four locations.
Promising his wife of 15 years they would soon return home to Knoxville, Joseph accepted a job at Bravo Cucina Italiana, where he was Executive Chef and General Manager for five years.
Tim has always had a passion to challenge himself and be his own boss, so he embarked on a wild journey. In May of 2011 Tim opened the first restaurant in his WokChow concept line. Tim chose to open WokChow because of his great love for Asian cuisine. His prowess for the culinary arts of the East can be tasted in every single dish.
Tim has enjoyed his experience thus far immensely. One of the biggest thrills Tim gets is when a guest asks him where else WokChow is located. Guests are always surprised when he answers that this is the first one because its already consistently providing such a great dining experience at unbeatable prices. Tim hopes to answer these questions differently very soon.
Tim thanks all of his patrons, and can often be found at the restaurant working with his fabulous staff and making sure of a great guest experience.
