Went here for breakfast, ordered and then sat and waited for 40 minutes. No one came near us though it was not busy and the waitress went past us several times making no eye contact. We finally asked whether our order was coming and were told they had ' just found it' and had just started to prepare it. Thank... More

A fun little restaurant with very good prices. We chose the Chinese buffet-only cost us 100 Aus dolllars for 4 of us with drinks and couple of coffees. Not much ambience so you would not go for a romantic meal, but fun with the family. Would go back again for the buffet and a quick meal.

We came across this place by accident. It wasn't very busy so we got a table easily. The food was great and so was the service. They have an all you can eat buffet as well as al a carte. We opted for the al a carte and we all enjoyed our meals.

What do you want for your money? We wanted a quick scoff-and-go Chinese buffet and got exactly what we wanted. Judging by the comings and goings whilst we were there that's what a lot of folks wanted too. Dishes were basic but good and we all thought we had had a good, honest low budget meal that was very easy... More

First of all let us thank you for, what looks like honest review. We are very happy you enjoyed our meals and also the value of them. You are right, we have many people coming thru our doors just for a quick dine in/takeaway buffet, but also a lot of our guest order from a la carte menu. Simply Wok... More

The meal was reasonable although a little cold variety quite good reasonable value for money. I think the secret would be to be early so that the food was fresh and hot

It sounds odd to say that simply wok has the best coffee in the bay when there are such lovely places like bean beat(who make great coffee too) who focus specifically on coffee. I find the during the day when the girl with blond hair is making the coffee (most of the time she is) you wont find a better... More

Simply Wok have the secret of friendly greeting and attentive service. Their menu lists the food simply but is very well presented and the menu pictures do not do the dishes justice. The staff is willing to modify a dish, make it take-away or make suggestions. Allergies are no problem to accommodate. It was disappointing to have a steak sandwich... More
