Wok Shop Cafe is moving to 1233 Van Ness Ave. to a 3,000 square-foot space that will undergo a partial build-out. The new location is a brief 282-foot walk around the corner from the restaurant’s current location at 1307 Sutter St.

Sources say that the lease on the Van Ness location will begin in February 2022, so it’s likely that Wok Shop’s new doors won’t open until next year. Until then, loyal customers can continue to enjoy their favorite Hunan cuisine for dining and take-out without having to remember the new address.

Even then, the transition shouldn’t throw customers off too much, given how close the new outpost will be to the current location. Wok Shop Cafe is taking over the space that previously belonged to Kyoto Sushi, which was also next to ABC Falafel, both of which are now closed.

Hopefully, the customers who will continue to flock to Wok Shop Cafe for their Chow Fun dishes, Sesame Chicken, and Hot & Sour Soup will bring new life to this corner lot of Van Ness Ave. Wok Shop Cafe has been around for at least few decades, so it’s no surprise that they’ve become the Polk Gulch establishment they’re known as today. The owners could not be reached for comment.  

Correction: A previous version of this article reported that Wok Shop Cafe was located in Chinatown. It is actually in the Polk Gulch neighborhood.
