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

We took our niece out the night before she was getting married with a group of 9 in total. We all had the chinese buffet for dinner. It took me 11 plates on the buffet to get a clean one as the previous plates all had remnants of food on them. Another person in our group handed them to the... More

We visited here for lunch, dinner and then lunch again the next day as Hervey Bay didn't offer much for vegetarians. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food portions were good size. The Chinese part of our visit was nice- they cooked me a fresh vegetable stir fry as their normal buffet doesn't have anything for vegetarians. Great place... More

I only got the chance to eat here on my last day in Hervey Bay (I wish I had of found it earlier in my trip). Not enough options in Hervey Bay for a vegetarian but the pancakes were a delicious breakfast! Inexpensive and plenty of fruit and icecream supplied with it! Eat right by the beach!

Waited 45 minutes for a take-away coffee. Staff were very slow and unprofessional. One of the staff members was serving food with sweat dripping from her face (I know it's QLD but wipe your face before serving food). After waiting over 45 minutes for our breakfast one of the meals were forgotten. Two members of our group ordered the very... More

On a busy Sunday morning we decided to have breakfast here. Usually it is our choice for Chinese food in Hervey Bay, but on recommendation the breakfast was delicious. Well presented, and not a long wait. I chose the Canadian breakfast, poached eggs, bacon and pancakes. Great coffee. Will have to try lunch next time

Had a really bad lunch here today, waste of money. Absolutely terrible rump steak, had two bites and left the rest. Asked for medium rare and it was well done; completely smothered everything in garlic sauce; two unripened cherry tomatoes included; no steak knives. Very poor excuse for hospitality.

Went here for breakfast. Most other nearby establishments charge double what you will pay at Simply Wok whose realistic pricing is what I would normally pay in Sydney. We ordered a bacon and egg roll each served on a Turkish bread roll made nice and crispy under the grill. Came with some salad greens and grape tomato. Cost $6.90, very... More

We had Sunday lunch with the steak special and omelette. Both meals were large portions, tasty with fresh ingredients and reasonably priced. Lovely, friendly staff and quick service. Will definately return on our next visit.
