Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have eaten here once before and wasn't that impressed but on second attempt at takeaway still expensive and underwhelming.

Tried a few times eating in plus takeaway. Quality inconsistent! Crowded and food is rushed. Prefer to support local businesses but needs to be better. I think people just settle because they are used to it.

Always fun and enjoyable, we always have a good laugh with the Magic team. Gibby and her staff provide great service and the kitchen turns out excellent food. Added to which it is very good value.

This is simply a fabulous Chinese restaurant. Not pretentious, excellent food, wonderful service. We have been coming here now whenever we visit the gold coast for years. Gibby is a thoughtful and considered host. She and her staff are welcoming and her chef is fantastic....Great food for anytime of the week- whether it’s after a long day at a theme park, over a catch up with friends or comfort food.More

Visited on a Wednesday and the place was full, luckily we had booked a table! Theere were 5 of us (adults), all ordered different mains, everything was literally superb! The food was hot, tasty and absolutely delicious. So mouth-watering and obviously fresh produce, freshly cooked...for us! To compliment the meals we order a large Veg Rice & a large Special Fried Rice. Whilst most of the mains were all eaten whilst there, there was enough ‘left overs’ to take home, that service was willing offered by the staff. The staff/owners were so attentive, great customer service and really knew there stuff. Another bonus was the fact it’s BYO alcohol. Will definitely be going back.More
