Bland food and very little of it. I was very disappointed and will not be returning. Best part of my meal was the Mountain Dew!

Small, flavourless deep fried appetizers. Don't think the chicken balls were homemade. If they were, they tasted leftover. Frozen mixed veggies in the rice...unreal! Egg roll had very little filling or flavour. Very bland meal overall. Can't believe all the great reviews for this place. Chicken chop suey was ok but very little if it in the combination. Never going... More

This is by far the best Chinese food in the city. Great selection and super fast service. It is so fast that if you want to enjoy your appetizer, you better order that first while you are deciding on your meal.

Sunday dinner, alone, while on business sucks. The Magic Wok made it a lot better. Friendly service and a clean open dining area makes for a great beginning. A pot of green tea with, fried dim sum start the meal. The dim sum was ok, as it needed a little more seasoning. The green tea took the chill off a... More

The location was nice. The sitting area was very nice! Finished very well. The service was amazing and fast. The food was really good and there was a huge selection. Hard to pick with so many good looking dishes. There was parking on th side and back which was convenient.

We had our last dinner in St John's here on Sunday . The food was wonderful as was the atmosphere. The steamed dumplings with ginger were amazing. . All the dishes were great . My favorite was the crispy ducky . We had coconut balls for desert and they were so good. Never had them before. Very reasonable prices too.

I have been to this eatery multiple times and will continue doing so. The food is amazing, the staff is very friendly and the atmosphere has been always welcoming. I just wish if they had more parking spots
