Fantastic!

Great food, have just moved to Darwin and it will definitely be a recurring restaurant for me! Absolutely loved it and the concept that you choose your own bits and pieces to go in there!

I made this one of my " must " visits on my short visit to Darwin. It is a little expensive BUT well worth it. I selected kangaroo and emu and was well satisfied. Service and any help you need is ace. I can't say anything but positive things about this venue !!

Totally one of the best restaurant experiences I've had! I suggest to go with a group of 6 to 8 and each select a different meat then share it all like a banquet. That's what my mates and I did last night it is was awesome. Very well priced and the service was second to none.

I was introduced to this restaurant by one of my local friends in Darwin. It is a hidden gem with wonderful food. You select your own ingredients and pay by weight and the chef cooks it in front of you.

This was our 2nd visit. Our first was when we were dating 3yrs ago, then it closed for refurbishment. It was good then, even better now!! The staff are just so lovely, and such a friendly atmosphere. It's a very popular spot so make sure you book, we rang last minute and they squeezed us in. I got a bit... More

I have been going to this place for years and I still love it! people complain about the change in the pricing but I still find it value for money and the pricing helps me not over eat. I love the quality and freshness of the food. You can complain on spending $20 on lunch when it is cooked right... More

We love Magic Wok!! My partner and I have been going for over 10 years and every time we go in we are warmly welcomed by Julie and the team. We are greeted by our names and we love that we feel like visiting relatives to their home when we dine. Their food is always fresh and tasty. Frank and... More

I love this place, I always have. But did you know that you can have your Magic Wok cooked in water instead of oil? Perfect for the seafood & white meat & I could hardly tell the difference!! Healthy AND tasty! I didn't think Magic Wok could get any better, but it has! I highly recommend garlic & ginger sauce... More
