If you judge this restaurant by its exterior, that will be your loss. Prompt service, greeted as soon as I walked in. Clean, pleasant interior. Very neat, organized. Fresh shrimp rolls lived up to their name. Pad see ewe was a tasty generous portion. No complaints at all. I will definitely return.

I was not impressed. Had Rangoon crab dumplings for starter and they showed up real quick....there's no way they were freshly cooked, just reheated. And not very tasty. Then basil pork for dinner, and I ordered it mild I think, I know I ordered it 2 on a scale of 1 to 4. Mild?!? It was way hot, to the... More

This is my good reliable place when doing in business in Joplin for a meal. Whether it be for lunch break (they have their lunch specials), unwinding with friends, or the end of a long tiring day of overtime work. The food is consistently good, the ingredients fresh, and the service is friendly without being too in-your-face. The place is... More

I agree with the other reviewers who suggest it isn't much to look at from the outside--just a little box building with a big noodle-bowl sculpture out front. The decor and atmosphere inside isn't particularly special, either, though it is pleasant. But the noodle selection is great, and there were many different options here. I would call it pan-asian (I... More

Agree the building and interior aren't anything to rave about but the food and service is very good. I tried the mango sticky rice for dessert and loved it. There's a large selection and something for everyone's taste.

I was very happy to find the Magic Noodle Restaurant. It is right on Rangeline Rd. It is easy to see because there is a big noodle bowl sculpture in front! It doesn't look like much outside, being a repurposed building, but the interior is attractive. They do offer alcohol. I had a stirfried dish with chicken and lots of... More

I had a really good experience here. I ordered Ginger Chicken, I had a large amount for the price. I wouldn't call this place a chinese food restaurant. but Noodles made right with lots of choices. the food was excellent, their side salad is small, but the house dressing is to die for. Prices are very good too. I will... More

We travel between Tulsa and Springfield, Mo. very often and always try to manage our time so that we can enjoy a meal at Magic Noodle. The food is very good and the service is friendly, although it can also be slow at times. The food is not very "authentic" but I imagine you could get a "real" Thai dish... More

Not authentic Thai. Best Chinese food in the area--not saying much. It's bland and boring. Thai is heat and hidden favors.
