There's something wonderful about a meal that is perfectly suited to what you feel like eating. At The Magic Wok, you choose how much food, what you want to eat, and the flavours. There no issue with how much chilli, uncertainty over the unwanted inclusion of ginger or horrible capsicum. It's just what you want, done in any combination of sauces. The pricing (by weight) is quite reasonable, and the chefs in the box return your freshly cooked meal through the hatch rapidly.

Julie is lovely, and the wine and beer selection reinforce the hospitality she extends to all guests. Pictured was my choice of scallops, prawns and mussels, with green beans, bok Choy, snow peas and bean shoots plus hokkien noodles in garlic and honey sauce. Bonus sprinkle of fried noodles on top.

I went here last night with a big group (13 pax) and had a wonderful time. The choice of fresh veggies/meats/seafood/vego options etc are endless.
Choose your ingredients, select some sauces, or just choose the chefs special sauce, option for complimentary noodles and hand it to the chef through a little window and in no time your meal will be ready.
The lady we had for table service etc was also very lovely and attentive :)

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.

The Magic Wok is more than a restaurant, it is a fun experience. You are given a whole buffet of meats, seafoods, vegetables and Asian delicacies to choose from. You load up your bowl, pick a few sauces and then take them to the chef to cook for you. Amazingly good. The only problem is making a choice and keeping it to a meal for one!

Great dining experience with a vast array at choice in veg, meat and seafood. All good fresh ingredients.
Only downside is that not everyone eats at the same time of it is a big group!
