Our welcome to the Magic Wok was courteous and polite. Always a good sign when you see Chinese people dining. I had the Magic Wok special curry, which had king prawns, char sui meat, chicken and beef. My wife had chicken & cashewnuts. The food was excellent, so much so we dined again there before returning home.

We had a take away from magic wok on holiday, the chicken pieces were generous in size - muckle chunky! But the noodles were a bit naff, really thin and quite tasteless in the chicken chow mein. Relatively cheap though for a Chinese take out.

If staying away in a self catering cottage, I usually try to find a Chinese Takeaway. In this instance I wish I hadn't bothered. The take away food from this place is truly awful, simply didn't resemble, or taste like what I ordered. I know there can be regional variations in these establishments, but I can't remember tasting such horrible... More

Came to Windermere for a surprise Birthday trip and was hunting for somewhere to eat having arrived late in the day. Being a very picky vegetarian it's usually a struggle for me, but not here. This was one of the best Chinese places I've been to. It had great vegetarian options, all listed on a separate veggie menu so clear... More

We actually got a takeaway from here but have to say it was beautiful. The order was on time as promised, hot on delivery and tasted lovely. Would definitely visit again.

We had a takeaway from there and it was very sloppy and oily. We were up half the night downing water as it was laden with MSG. Won't be returning in a hurry!

We ordered quite a large takeaway, as it was our first night in Windermere we didn't know the area. I wish we had taken more notice of the bad reviews, the food is below standard. There's something wrong when the best thing about the meal is the chips!! We Picked through the meals as we where starving after a long... More
