I tend to visit the restaurant quite regularly and bring friends to eat when they are in town. The service is second to none, the food comes out quickly, the food is great, and I've never been disappointed. If you want something like a little extra spice or anything else, they are always happy to accommodate you. If you are... More

We have visited Woks Up lots of times now and have no hesitation to recommend it as the best I have ever eaten. The restuarant is really nice, the meals always fast and I have never thought the price was any different to any other small town restaurants which considering the towns location and the quality of the food is...

The Restaurant is well presented but the food was not Asian authentic as in Malaysian authentic. Some people would probably like that as Malaysian and Thai tends to be spicy.

Expensive but very tasty with great portions, two dishes and a noodle serve was just under 60 dollars. I will return but it is a little costly

I went to Woks up on advice from a friend and was terribly disappointed in the service and quality of the food. The food came out fast and was acceptable but the price was too much for the food quality.

very wide selection of great food. i was told that this was a great restaurant but didn't expect it to be this good in a town so far from anywhere. thank goodness for people who decide to settle in little country towns & produce excellent food for weary travelers. if you find yourself in Tennant Creek try this one!

We had a lovely meal with a good selection to choose from. Loved the decor - it had a very peaceful atmosphere and you didn't feel rushed at all. Nice and clean and good service.
