Manchu Wok is a Chinese-themed fast food restaurant chain in the United States and Canada. The chain operates 200 stores, primarily in shopping mall locations. It is owned by Hong Kong-based Café de Coral Holdings Ltd. Despite the chain's name, the menu does not feature any dishes from traditional Manchurian cuisine and instead contains mostly American Chinese cuisine and Canadian Chinese cuisine.

The first store was opened by Dr. Jack Lew and other Hong Kong immigrants in 1980 in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. Lew hired food service equipment consultant Alfred Grech, a Maltese immigrant, to design and help with the building of the first 33 stores.

In 2003 and 2004, Manchu Wok expanded its operations to US military bases in Santa Rita, Guam; and Okinawa, Japan, respectively. It also has location on a U.S. Army garrison in Korea,[1] and Ramstein Air Base in Germany.[2] and US Army Base, Grafenwohr, Germany
