I ate here over 5 years ago. I decided to bring my wife here noting it was excellent food and a unique experience. Magic Wok did not disappoint. The concept is choose your vegetables, choose your meat (350grams), choose your sauce and choose your noodles. They will cook it in front of you and ready in minutes. Great flavours, good... More

A really novel experience. Choosing veg and meat you would like cooked for your meal, add sauces and noodles. Meat and veg are weighed - 350g = $24.00, then hand it to chefs and they cook it up for you. Sensational meal!! Basic restaurant very clean, cold wine and beer, bit stuck in the back blocks, next to carpark and... More

Nice quick lunch, you choose what you want to eat vegetables and meats. And choose how you want chef to cook, completely rice and noodles.

The place is a little bit hard to find for tourists. It's at the end of a small lane right next to a car park. But it's idea is very interesting as all the food is charged by the weight of ingredients you pick up. The vegetables are fresh and they have a great variety of meat. You will see... More

It is a great plqace with fresh meat and veges to choose from to add in your bowl, you pick a sauce (there are a large selection) and then give to chef and he cooks for you. The price goes by weight, so as you fill up your bowl you can check the weight and get the price.
