You pick your own ingredients for your stir fry dish. Usual veggies, but an outstanding choice of meats. Includes beef, chicken, pork, kangaroo, crocodile, barra, emu, squid and others. Noodles or rice and a amazing choice of sauces. Cooked perfectly, I enjoyed my meal.

We love the Magic Wok. It's tucked away in West Lane. Dinner is dearer than lunch - approximately $25. minimum. You choose your own ingredients, vegetables, meat, noodles and then sauce, and get charged per gram. Always delicious.
