We had heard a lot about this place, and it is, apparently, always busy. We thought a Monday would be perfect, but the wait was a long one. It's an unusual process for getting your food: you select what you want, and then present it to one of the 2 chefs to cook it. The variety of food and sauces... More

Hot, fresh delicious stir fry; chosen by you, cooked in front of you and ready in minutes. A minimum charge for 300 grams ($16.90) of meat and veg with free noodles of your choice. A scale is provided to weigh your order and make sure you only pay for what you want. Some people seem confused about this as 300... More

This is a very popular place. You choose all your own ingredients and a sauce. Hand it over to be cooked, by a not so friendly cook. Then find out that your Stirfry has cost you $25. I find it is too expensive for what you get.

This place can be a little hard to find tucked at the back of a arcade. But it is well worth it. It is a very original and unusual way to pick your dish. You go with your bowl and from a wide selection of meats, veggies, sauce and noodles you oick what you like and they weigh and you... More

My partner thought the camel was delicious. She tried the exotic meats like camel, kangaroo, emu and buffalo and liked them. I just went with my faves of shrimp and scallopsbroccoli and cauliflower. I have been here twice before and wanted my partner to get to try this place. Our friend also visited for the first time and he loved... More

Excellent food and service is tops. Staff are friendly and service is quick. Serve yourself food and watch the chefs cook it for you. Great selection of all the "normal" meats to choose from as well as camel, crocodile, kangaroo and buffalo.

This is without a doubt my favourite restaurant in Darwin. The premise is simple, get a tray on one side fill it with as many vegetables as you want and on the other side as many and as much meat as you want and then choice or sauce or two and watch the cooks wok fry it up right in... More
