Middle Earth is a Chinese restaurant with other Asian dishes. We chose the steamed dim sims (great), Schezwan Chicken (OK) and chicken with cashew nuts (good). Overall pretty tasty... More

Business name is now Middle Earth, however, the food was bland and tasteless, we ordered 3 very different dishes and could not identify any of them.

We had heard great things about Woks Up and were sorry to hear the restaurant was under new management under the new name Middle Earth but decided to give it a try anyway. We had a great night!! It is the usual Chinese fare with a few extra things like Laksa and Thai style curries on offer. Entrees were about... More

It's like an oasis! Too good to be true huddled in this little outback town! The best Chinese I've ever tasted and the service is fabulous! Such a friendly bunch that made us feel very welcome.

Very surprising to read the reviews of this place in TA and then go there and enjoy the food. These NT towns dont really have a reputation for good food and this is a great place

The Wok's Up food is delicious, fresh and very tasty - in fact some of the best Chinese food I have ever had. A totally unexpected find in Tennant Creek! I have been to this restaurant maybe 6 times, always when I am in Tennant for work and the food and experience is always excellent. Be sure to say hello... More
