Very nice dinner with family

Molly Woo's was a surprise for me. I went in with low expectations and was really happy we went for dinner. Several of the people in my party had food allergies and the server was very attentive and made sure we were all taken care of. We also had several small children in our party.

It never fails...I always get an excellent lunch or dinner at this restaurant. I love the food choices, and staff is always helpful and attentive. You can't go wrong eating here if you enjoy Asian dishes.

Overall, this is an outstanding restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised. Normally, restaurants at shopping malls are chains or sell prepackaged food. Molly Woo's is not one of those restaurants. My visit was off to a rocky start, which is why I gave it 4 out of 5. There was only one person in front of the restaurant. She was dealing... More

Overall, good dinner. A little pricey in some areas. I don't know if I feel the need to come back anytime soon.

Another part of Cameron Mitchel's empire that has covered the C'bus area. The large, high ceiling dining room and bar area are welcoming, as is the personable and professional staff. Fish is always a good bet in Mitchel restaurants and Woo's is no exception. The place attracts not only shoppers from Polaris mall where the restaurant is located but outsiders... More

If you happen to be on the south side of Columbus, and you're looking for good Asian cuisine, Molly Woo's is the place to go. They offer a variety of excellent Thai and Chinese dishes, and they offer a number of vegetarian options. We had spring rolls, beef with brocoli, and steamed vegetables with mushrooms, all of which were excellent.... More

Don't get me wrong, this is a fine restaurant, just pricey for an Asian food restaurant located in a shopping mall. To be fair the atmosphere/decor is nice, and once inside, you may forget that you are in a shopping area. The food, as always, was terrific. My wife and I enjoyed a very lightly fried calamari appetizer. Our main... More

I took my 89 year old mother shopping at Polaris Mall for her birthday and we chose Molly Woo's for lunch. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The hostess seated us promptly and we had the "world's best waiter". He went over the menu with us and made some recommendations. We loved the Crab Rangoon appetizer. I highly recommend the... More

We hadn't been to Molly Wu's for many many years. We thought we try it today, knowing that it wouldn't be crowded for lunch. There were very few people dining; however, as predicted, the hostess sat us right in front of the open kitchen. When I asked for a different table, she presented an "attitude" and moved us to a...
