I ate here several times during a recent stay in Windermere. The service was impressive considering how busy it seemed on both occasions, staff very welcoming and the food was fresh, hot and very tasty. Portion sizes were also very generous, just what was needed after a long day walking. Thoroughly recommended.

We were on our way back from ambleside and decided we would have a meal out. We decided to try the magic wok after reading the good reviews on trip advisor. The restaurant was very busy, most of the customers were Chinese themselves so we thought we were in for a treat. We decided to order the sharing appetiser for... More

Slight delay as it was so busy so went back to cottage. They called 20 minutes later to say food ready to pick up. Excellent service.

We had a great meal in this restaurant in the Windermere town centre. It is a takeaway as well as a small restaurant. Don't be deceived by this small restaurant, it can easily sit about 25 people. It serves delicious Cantonese dishes. We had the banquet for 2 people and ordered an extra dish. The service was prompt and good.... More

Visited this place with family (parents + wife). The service was most impressive - fast, very well mannered and not pushy at all. Food was less spicy (not lack of spice), which was exactly what we were looking for. Must visit for all who would prefer eating chinese food in Windermere.

Even though they don't open til 5.30 they happily took my order over the phone at 5.20 and had my takeaway ready for me to collect at 5.40 p.m. Excellent service and brilliant food exactly as requested including the special request for salt n pepper mushrooms which aren't on the menu.

We could not find another spot and decided to try something different. Definitely not disappointed. the food was freshly prepared and really tasty. The food made us long back to the days we lived in Singapore.

My husband and I love tofu dishes and are quite fussy when it comes down to stir fried tofu in chilli onion and garlic - this however was one of the best we have had and was followed by a really decent veg curry, chilli chips, rice and a garlic broccoli dish. Everything was so delicious and as vegans, we... More

I ordered tofu crispy chow mein. I left quite a lot of the meal as it didn't taste great. The tofu didn't taste fresh at all. The fried rice was tasty, but overall was a disappointing meal
