My husband ordered a small bowl of Hot and Sour Soup. It was almost a quart of soup, way too much. Worse than that it was so overly spiced with chili that he couldn't eat more than a bite or two. On the other hand, the chicken and green beans was delicious as was the beef and mushrooms. The... read more

Not a picky family at all! Frequent the local chain gourmet spot in town all the time. Ordered three different entrees(all of which you could find at any Chinese resturaunt) and all three were disgusting! Tasted like frozen food reheated, which I could over look, had it tasted good at all!! Not only was the food inedible (tossed almost everything)... More

If you are looking for Chinese Food in Santa Maria with quality on a consistent basis...learn how to cook Chinese. Very disappointing on a recent trip with many items sold out. Sometimes it has been flavorful but most times ... last trip they put pot stickers in the wonton soup...????? Now our Sushi...that is excellent at most every venue.

The food was great but the service was poor. There were only two other parties in the restaurant so I don't understand why the service was so poor. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal and I would return.

Lots of choices, food is prepared when you order. Great service. We are always greeted like the wait staff knows us. Even the Chef comes out to see how we liked the food.

Went up to Santa Maria for the weekend and ordered dinner delivered the first night. We were told about the Magic Dragon restaurant. We called and were pleased with the fast delivery time. The down side was the food and the extra ingredients. I ordered the Rainbow Roll ( tuna,crab,4 types of fish on top). After two pieces of the... More

We've been going here since it changed owners a few years back and it's always been delicious. The portions are huge so we always have a ton of leftovers for dinner the next night. The cream cheese won tons are a must everytime we go, so yummy. The Gen Tao's chicken is also a must. Love this place.

We enjoy going to the Magic Dragon Chinese Restaurant. The staff is nice. The food was great and the price was very reasonable. The sushi kinda fell apart, but the walnut shrimp sold me on my return trip back to this restaurant. I love Chinese food and this place makes it easy to feed that oriental craving.

Have went here a couple times recently. So nice finding a chinese restaurant, that serve dishes with fresh ingredients , food arrived hot, and quick, service was excellent , each time we needed a togo box because of the large portions. Going to try their sushi later this week , I bet I wont be disappointed.
