My wife and I went here early on a Saturday evening. It was not busy yet, but was before we left. Service was excellent, with our drinks never getting low. Food was great, with lots of vegetarian options. Unlike most Chinese restaurants, they will do anything on the menu as vegetarian. They also offer items for vegans. The Egg-Rolls were fresh, crisp and well made, and the Kung-Pao Tofu was really good. Definitely a place we will return to!
Magic Wok is a cozy little Chinese place located in a cozy corner of Glendale. It has an elaborate menu yet they usually alter the dish to my husband's taste. My husband usually like extra ginger and garlic in his Chinese food. The ambiance is home-like and the waiters are easy and friendly. It's a quiet place so don't expect the hustle-bustle that you might find in restaurants located on the Brand. But it's ideal for a dinner with the family!!
Yes, it's always crowded but it's worth the wait. Some of the best dim sum and noodles I've ever had in my life. Stand outs include the mixed spicy wontons, chicken with flat noodles, shrimp and pork shumai and of course, the juicy pork dumplings. They also serve a few terrific sauteed veggie dishes such as the mustard greens and the kale. I like to wash it all down with iced cream green tea with sea salt.
