The restaurant is small, modestly decorated with tables quite closely packed together, so it's a bit tricky to get to your table when it's busy, which it was when we arrived ! It's a very popular restuarant (there was a queue of people waiting for a table and several people waiting for takeaways so the area around the front door was a bit crowded) but fortunately we had a reservation. The menu is extensive, it includes a wide variety of dishes including jellyfish, eel and even shark, and the wine list was reasonable, although we thought the wines were a bit on the expensive side. The food we ordered was delicious and the portion sizes were good. The customer service was also good, although they seem to add 12.5% service onto the bill automatically, which we were happy to pay on this occassion, but we consider it should be at the customer's discretion.

Love their Roast Duck and Rice, char Sui pork and salt and pepper ribs! Delicious. Service is always quick and non fussy. I eat here at least once a month.

The food was very good but expensive. Th decor needs to be modernised and service to be improved. The staff are polite but its too crowded.

My wife and out two-year old had a great dinner here last week. Aromatic duck and the crispy lamb in lettuce leaves are excellent. We also had an aubergine dish which was very tasty. Reasonable wine list. We will return when we are in London. We went early, whcih was a good idea considering the restaurant had people waiting for tables before 7pm

Restaurants come and go but Magic Wok has stayed put in Queensways for many many years. It is an old time favorite on mine. Good value food, very tasty Chinese good. Friendly staff and I always marvel how they remember their guests. This isn't a fancy restaurant (then again Queensway is not a destination known for fancy eateries) and it has no pretense, but for a stretch of road where every other doorway is a place to eat you can't go wrong with Magic Wok and won't break the bank either. It is popular with locals and can get very busy in the evenings. Enjoy :)
