Wished we had gone here before !

We have been past this place so many times, thought of popping in one day, so when we had to come into town to buy a coffee machine we stayed over night and decided to give this place a go. Firstly we dressed up a little and when we arrived the waitress began to place us right by the door... read more

Below average food but matches the price big portions but not cooked traditionally from the regions. Dumplings were microwaved but the sushi is very nice.

Great nasi goreng - an unexpected edible dish in Mackay! I have been disappointed with the standard of food here in Mackay to the extent that I am loathe to eat out due to the high prices and low quality but the Hot Wok has done well with this one.

Had my farewell dinner here with a party of 9. They seated us at a round table which we loved as we could all chat easily. We all ordered banquet C which cost $29 per person. Great value and awesome range of meals included in banquet. Mongolian Lamb was brilliant. Definitely getting it again next visit. Staff and owner always... More

I ordered the satay chicken and small rice as a take-away. The food itself was very tasty and filling. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone fancying an Asian dining experience in Mackay.

Food was good but the bill was way more than I would expect for Asian food. We ordered the banquet and the food was just enough for the 6 people with the last bits scraped off the plates. Not my usual experience with banquets in Aus.

Can't go wrong with fresh cooked noodles, soup or rice. These guys do it well and the price is not over the top. Typical fast food done Asian style.

If you want a flashback to your childhood eating in Chinese restaurants with your family surrounded by glitzy décor and enjoying Aussie-style Chinese dishes, then you'll love this! I enjoyed my visit to Hot Wok, although some might be disappointed and think it is outdated - for me that is part of its charm.

Been here many times and the food is always good. The bar is also great to meet for per dinner drinks before dinner. For a great Chinese feed, this place never disappoints.
