Good prices, big serves and friendly service

Wok on has a well priced menu with a variety of choices, suitable for vegetarians too. The serving sizes are very generous and the owner is an extremely friendly man guaranteed to give you a smile and a great chat. Recommended.

This was nearly hands on cooking! Chat to the chef while he prepares your dishes. Large portions, not cheap, but it's tourist alley, but excellent value. We had enough to have the next day. Good variety of dishes to choose from or make your own combinations.

The one man serving and cooking was friendly but the noodles were tasteless. No flavour and had very little chicken. The bowl looked great when it arrived but I have never eaten something so tasteless. Give this place a miss if you want your food to have any flavour

Whilst the chef was incredibly friendly, and the meals were filling, they were a little lacking in flavour, however the prices are reasonable, and they offer take away.

We thought we would try Wok On and we weren't disappointed.The Calamari Parcels were very very tasty. The Goan chicken curry FANTASTIC and the XO beef flat rice noodles DELICIOUS. The service was with a smile and very obliging and another good aspect byo and no corkage.

On our way back from Port Douglas we decided to swing by Palm Cove, having never visited on previous trips to Australia. While there we thought we'd grab a quick bite to eat, and we chose Wokon. Within seconds if we were sitting at a table overlooking the lovely sea and bright blue sky. We ordered for different dishes. The... More

food was cooked fresh although it was not cooked like traditional wok cooked noodles but rather like a soup style it was still good and tasty with plenty of it. Good choice if you want to give the overpriced restaurants a miss and just have a casual feed. Owner was friendly and service was good with seating out the front... More

Overpriced and not too tasty. Shopfront kinda gave away the fact it wasn't going to be first class, but we were trying to find something all six in our party would want to eat. It was okay, it certainly nothing to rave about. Pricing reflected the captive audience that is Palm Cove; it's either eat there or travel.

We went for a quick dinner last night and found the food very dissapointing. The laksa and fish was tastless and not worth the money. Won't be back again.
