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.

I've been going to the magic wok for years. It's always been a great spot for lunch. Design your own stirfry. Go low carb if you want. Always nice fresh ingredients.

Magic Wok allows you to choose exactly which ingredients you want to be cooked into your stir fry and you pay for what you order. There is a minimum weight 350g for dinner $22.50 (unsure about lunch), note you pay extra for anything heavier than the minimum, and it can get price pretty quickly. Choose the vegetables, meats (camel, chicken,... More

Theres such a variety of meats, vegetables etc and its very easy for someone to eat there with dietary requirements. I am gluten intolerant and can eat there, plus when I fast for Easter, this place... More

This place is a hit with the work colleagues. Every meat and veg you can think of, you pick your own ingredients (you pay by total weight) select your sauces, type of noodle, then watch the chef cook it up for you behind a glass window. SOOOOO good :)
