We were a group of 7 who 'returned' to this establishment after many years. We were very warmly greeted and made to feel very comfortable.

The Magic wok is an interesting idea, you select from an extensive range of vegetables, meats and sauces which are then cooked by the chief. However in the absence of any suggestions for combination of the exotic meats (horse, camel, emu, duck, kangaroo and turkey) both my husbands meal and mine ended up being fairly ordinary. It was also expensive... More

We go to Magic Wok often enough because it's almost like a novelty, watching Frank work in front of that massive wok is quite entertaining. Food is always great.

The food we ordered was lovely (Mussaman curry & Lemongrass chicken) but the service was less than ordinary. Wouldn't go here again.

The whole novelty of this place is great, but in the end it's just over priced yummy noodle box right? If I was to go out for a night of Chinese food it definitely won't be here again. Over priced food and drinks with pathetic service.

fresh, friendly and fun. Could become pricey with a family but for a couple if was a tasty and healthy dinner that we will go back to. Service was excellent. ambiance was average... its a small restaurant.. if it is food you are interested in rather than decor.. give it a try

Every time I come here I never get disappointed the food is always awesome. I don't mind paying too much for my food as long as it taste good and worth the money. Definitely would recommend this to everyone I know and would come back again.
