Excellent asian cuisine at an affordable price.

I absolutely love Ma Jong's, my sister who works for the state told me about their lunch specials and we went twice in one week while I was visiting. I got the spicy chow mein both times, it was perfectly flavored, hot like I like it, and the noodles would have even been great by themselves. they... read more

Good location in downtown Sacto. Good seating and friendly staff. But food is mediocre, kind of like a fast food express. Too much sauce smothered out choices. Service was fine and prices reasonable, but I doubt if we would return.

The food is slightly above average. There is a lot of choice. It is served quickly if you are on your lunch hour. The atmosphere is very bright and cheerful at long tables or outdoors. Drinks and fortune cookies are self-serve.

My friends and I ate here after a conference. We had noticed the prices were good for downtown Sacramento so we decided to try it. You order the food at the counter and they delivered it to your table. The Pho was good as were the spring rolls that were fresh. My friends had rice bowls and the meat was... More

OK...the "meh" doesn't mean the place was horrible. It had its moments, and served the purpose we had in mind when we came here (we were both craving fresh veggies after a weekend of over-indulgence). It was also convenient, being just across the street from our hotel (the Marriott Residence Inn) and from Capitol Park, and just around the corner... More

Passing through Sacramento, stayed downtown for the night, Ma's was in (safe) walking distance, open till 230 am on Friday & Saturday. Huge, delicious portions at an affordable price. Loved the Green Beans and the Spicy Shanghai noodles and Lemon Peel Chicken.

I ate Garlic Green Beans at about 3 different places in one week and Ma Jong's was definitely the best! We ate late, having arrived in Sacto late. Ma Jong's is NOT where Google says it is. But we found it. We ordered at the counter and sat at long tables that were mostly empty. The food came out in... More

You place your order at the counter and then you are treated to a huge portion of great food. Big enough to share, reasonable prices. Nice tables for larger parties or for just one. All 8 people in our party were happy and impressed.

Counter style ordering with well made food pairs nicely with access to the shared seating space with a couple other restaurants for enclosed al fresco dining. We picked a booth with curtains, food was delivered in good time, and we enjoyed it all.

The place is located one block from the convention center, and so can be very crowded at lunch time, when the convention attendees are let out. Ma Jong's has a counter, where people check out the menu, and place their orders. I always order the $10 Shanghai spicy noodles with chicken, beef and shrimp. I've eaten here five times, and...
