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...

The food is great and so is the ambiance - typical Chinese place. Would recommend the following dishes: KUNG PAO CALAMARI CRAB RANGOONS

Having heard about Molly Woo's for years- we finally got there this trip to Columbus. Loved the modern chinois type décor with colorful red lanterns. Friendly greetings from very "Columbus type girls"... this would be a great place to employ local Asian students however.?? But this was a tip off of what was to come. Old rock music filled the...

My Father and I had a nice outdoor meal here last week. Very trendy appearing restaurant. The hostess was a little cold but the waiting staff was friendly. Service was a little slow but on a nice evening it wasn't a bother. The spring rolls were loaded with fresh ingrediants. The dinners were prepared to order and attractively prepared. The... More

Molly Woo's is SURROUNDED by local eateries, but our first visit was so memorable that we returned again the next time we were in the area. The quality and presentation of food was good, and the servers were wonderful. On our first visit we sat at the bar, and just made it in time to enjoy the Happy Hour Appetizers... More

Molly Woo's is a place that we go quite frequent when we want good Asian food. Their service is usually outstanding and the food is the same. We have tried many of their selections of food and it is always outstanding. It comes to your table in an attractive presentation and a wonderful selection of menu choices to select from.... More

Molly Woo's is a place that I frequent about once a year. The decor is very nice and the restaurant has a very attractive interior ambiance. On our most recent visit, the service and the food were both very good. I was, however, disappointed with the Wonton soup which I remembered enjoying on previous visits. It seems that the sodium...

The dishes are imaginative and very well presented. The staff are professional and attentive. The decor is gorgeous. It is expensive, though, but you probably get your money's worth.
