“A great asian restaurant in the middle of nowhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

I was very surprised by Wok's Up, they have a fantastic selection of asian dishes which I just did not expect to find in Tennant Creek, the service is friendly and the food comes out very quickly.

“Surprising find in remote Australia and consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I have eaten here a number of times. Whilst Cantonese is not my favourite, the food here is consistently good; reasonably priced, quick service and a good meal. I recommend the King Pawn Omelette.

“Best Chinese Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I loved the service, the atmosphere and the food is the best Chinese I have ever tasted. When you visit Tennant Creek it is a must to try, eat in take away or home delivered for a small price.

The food to be great but this random little place made a lovely take away meal. Bit expensive though

“Great restaurant in the middle of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

After looking at a few of the pubs to grab a meal, we found this place at the end of town and decided to give it a go, what a surprise! The room is decorated nicely and there is plenty of room inside. The service was quick and the food arrived quickly also, there were quite a few people there that night which made the quick service even better. All of our food was delicous and of generous servings and also reasonably priced considering it is in the middle of nowhere. We were very happy with our meal and would definately recommend Woks up to anyone visiting or living in Tennant Creek.
