I often visit these premises when drinking in Windermere. The service is swift, so no chance of losing any drinking momentum. Food is always excellent and reasonably priced. The decoration is a tad 80's, maybe consider this a talking points

I live locally and often come here for a take-away. The food is always good and not expensive either! The staff are friendly and welcoming.

Every November we have a very wet but enjoyable week in Grasmere eating out at different restaurants around the lakes. We particularly like Chinese food and have frequented various establishments around the lakes. Four years ago we saw that this take away had customer tables, and we were welcomed by the owner and made very welcome. The service and quality... More

It was my friend's birthday and we were late coming back to town after watching the fireworks for Bonfire night, and all the other restaurants were closed by 9pm... we chanced on the Magic Wok as it was the only place that was open... it looked like a takeaway from outside but they had chairs and a table so we...

By some margin the worst Chinese food we have eaten and the worst food in the Lake District we have had in the last 7 years. Nothing positive to say about this place.

Walked in and greeted warmly. We chose to have the set meal for 2 which worked out as £30.

One of the best takeaways we've had. Singapore chow mein was delicious, as was the king prawn curry. Hubby had Singapore fried rice and beef with mushrooms and ribs to start. All delicious and very good value.

The food is average. My girlfriend and we had egg fried rice (which didn't have any egg in it) soft noodles with bean sprouts and onions, sweet and sour chicken, and chicken in chilli sauce. We have had much better, and wouldn't eat from here again.

The food was nice and just made to order. Great veggie options. We ordered a takeaway of salt and pepper chicken and beancurd in black bean sauce; both really nice and good value for money.
