A good place to go if you don't know whether you like these foods and just want to sample them. It isn't super cheap but you choose how much of each ingredient you put into your dish - meat & vegetables - sauce, toppings and rice/noodles are extras included in the price. The waitress was very helpful, the service was... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals at The Magic Wok and would happily eat here again. Grab a tray and make your way around the buffet, filling one side of your tray with veggies and the other side with meat (all the ‘usual suspects’ plus different choices such as camel, crocodile, kangaroo and emu). There is a $22.50... More

This is a great idea - a wok restaurant where you select the meat, veg, noodle, and sauce combination you feel like today and deliver it to the chefs to cook. Delicious, with a range of exotic meats to try like camel, crocodile, and emu,

This was a fun and interesting place to eat. You choose the food you want with sauce etc and then chef will cook it for you in front of your eyes. I cant wait for my Mum to come over as she will love it too. All the food looked fresh and newly prepped so no dodgy looking buffet to... More

Have been coming here for years, I tend to fill up on seafood as you pay per kilo regardless of what it is. You pick what u want including type of noodle to add to your dish and cooking sauce. Can't go wrong

What a great place. So many different combinations of meals that you can make... Choose from different vegetables, different meats and seafood, and different choices of sauces... Cook in oil for taste, or water for health and taste.. Always busy, always full of LOCALS... A little hidden away from the main street but once found, a secret I certainly won't... More

I had been told that the Magic Wok was good but until the chop sticks went to my lips the journey was over.Bit hard to find. I was shown the " ropes " by a charming lady and you pick tags for your sauce.Had to try kangaroo and emu, both tasted fantastic. Bill wasn't astronomical 22 AUD and I thought... More

Pick out your own exotic meats (I tried crocodile, emu, camel, and kangaroo) and your choice of noodle, plus all the vegetables you desire (you pay by weight, so take as much or as little as you like). The kitchen stir fries it and delivers it to your table piping hot in just a few minutes. And it is delicious!
