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... More

Each and every time I go to Ma Jong's the food is terrific and the service is fast. I almost always get the General Chicken and have never been disappointed. Friends get a combination of other things and every plate gets emptied. If I had to say one bad thing, it would be that there are time it's difficult to... More

In a five day stay, I ate at Ma Jong's three times, and enjoyed it thoroughly every time. The relaxed atmosphere is welcoming for a group as well as alone. I waited to order anywhere from five minutes to 20 minutes but the food was well worth the wait. After ordering, the food was out within ten minutes and was... More

I have been to Ma Jong's no fewer than seven times. It is, by far, my favorite place for Pad Thai. With its casual atmosphere, it makes for a nice place to meet friends or go alone. The enclosed patio seating is also a nice feature, although it is shared with an adjoining restaurant, which sometimes uses the patio for... More

I have lunch here on a recent trip and thought the food was really good. The atmosphere was serene and I chose to eat on their patio. The menu had a wide range of choices from different Asian cuisines. And I would agree the staff was super friendly. Not a fancy place, you order up front at the counter. Food... More

I heard raving reviews about this restaurant so, I went to try it. The menu is a bit scarce especially compared to other Chinese restaurants in Sacramento. The staff is very nice and friendly and their walnut shrimp was excellent.

I was looking for a more traditional Asian restaurant and found Ma Jong's on L Street. Wilson suggested the Thai Chow Fun which was excellent. I will be here for awhile and will definitely go back.

Although the menu offers little in the way of completely meat and fish free food, the staff worked with us to make dishes friendly for our diet preferences. Relaxed and lovely ambiance, casual and kid friendly but also peaceful.

This place may have a line for ordering but it moves very fast. After the line, you get your drink and take your number to a table (indoor or outdoors). The server will deliver your plate within 5-7 minutes. The servers will check back to make sure everything is ok, just like table waiters do. The food is great, not... More

Great Service: the young men behind the cash register were helpful in ordering, and came out to check up on folks.
