Excellent food!

Magic Wok has the most authentic Chinese food that we've tasted since we visited China. They have a Chinese menu and a menu for typically Americanized Chinese food. So you get to pick.

Service was mediocre as was the food. Interior is worn out and so was the waitress. The jar of hot mustard was so crusty as to be unusable.

You may have some difficulties explaining your order if you have a lot of dietary requirements or modifications... But if you can take it the way it is... DO IT! It's not all authentic Chinese, but if you have a specific request for a particular Chinese dish, they generally will accommodate. Their food is DEFINITELY underpriced! This is BY FAR... More

Really good, authentic Chinese food. If you are ready for a treat order from the white menu. Mango chicken, pepper beef, chicken and snow peas and Moo Goo Gai Pan are all awesome. Atmosphere is a little lacking as the wallpaper is peeling and the booths are cracked. Silverware is very old and cheap. The food makes you forget all... More

If you want Chinese and not the normal Chinese that you can find in any Chinese restaurant, this is the place. They have a very unique selection of items that can only be found at the Magic Wok and not elsewhere in the Tri Cities. For those who have lived on the west coast, it is West Coast quality Chinese...

The won-ton soup is delicious,and I really like their Mango chicken,Moo goo gaipan, pineapple chicken, and their crab Rangoon. We eat in and carry out;they have the sweetest waitress ever. The interior of the Magic Wok desperately needs updating;still the food is good.

We're used to having Cantonese Chinese food but haven't been able to find it in the Johnson City area. We tried this restaurant, and I was blown away. It's not Cantonese, but the fried rice here is awesome. I ordered the vegetable fried rice and asked them to add pork to it, so I could get the large variety of... More

We have been to many Chinese restaurants, some are good others ok. We would drive by this restaurant every other day on the way to work, but never stopped. 6 month ago we decided to give it a try and OMG I'm so glad we did!! Everything we ordered or have ordered has been the best! They have 2 menus,... More

seven of us went to dinner - all seven dishes were excellent.crab rangoon and sxechuan fish were especially outstanding and memorable, always take the server's suggestion - those were our happiest choices when we did. Spice can be hotter or milder according to preference.lovely decor in an unassuming exterior
