The food at this little takeaway had SO much promise, but was let down by being reheated in the microwave the night we visited. Hoping we were just unlucky & that this isn't the norm.

We loved the different options available for noodles, sauces, dumplings etc. Great food at a great location. Enjoyed eating while soaking in the scenery of the beach and esplanade. Awesome!

This is a very basic take away noodle shop run by two poms. The food is so, so not bad but not great either. Considering the high competition, the standards here are at best basic. If food served up in take away containers is your idea of a restaurant meal then this is for you. This place would benefit from... More

Have your curry or your noodles overlooking the palm trees and the watch the waves come in at this very friendly little cafe in Palm Cove. The food was delicious and overall a great experience. Highly recommended.

This small restaurant has a friendly English owner. It is the only BYO restaurant with NO surcharge! The owner is the chef and cook up a yummy noodle dish with various meats ,seafood veggies and noodles. You can take away or sit at one of the out door tables. It was perfect for a late arrival from the airport and... More

Homemade Goan curry was awesome! Great value meal either eat in overlooking beach or takeaway. Bloke who runs it is very helpful and friendly. Definitely will return when we are lucky enough to return to Palm Cove.

There seems to be many positive reviews on Tripadvisor for the noodle dishes at Wok On, but on the evening we purchased take-away dinner I wasn't in the mood for noodles so I thought I'd give the "Goan beef meatball curry" a go. Upon opening the plastic container, first impressions were not good. Firstly, given the menu description of "beef... More

Arrived late in Palm Cove and didn't want to dine out so chose Wok On for a take-out meal. The owner appeared to be running the show and was super helpful in explaining his dishes and and their ingredients. The noodle display was helpful and the streamlined way to choose sauces and other additions was also simple. The noodles were... More

Stopped by here for some take away noodles at dinner, and we weren't disappointed. The BYO section was great as it catered to all tastes. The two noodles I ordered were piping hot and full of flavour. My only negative would be that although the serving size is quite generous, the noodles are still more expensive than I would prefer...

Came here for lunch during our stay in Palm Cove, the food was great. We got 2 stir-fries and they were tasty and filling. The service was great, seems like one man owns and runs the place and he was super friendly and helpful.
