I have been eating at this location for years. They are always very friendly. When ordering a dinner portion I usually have enough left for at least two more meals. The place is always clean. There is no buffet but the service is fast and food comes out really fast. Typically I order carry out which is ready in 10... More

If you are into buffets... They don't have one. It is always prepared fresh to order. Typically I normally go at lunch since you get a smaller portion entree, soup, 2 crab Rangoon or an egg roll and either fried or steamed rice for around $6.50. I like their shrimp and vegetables. Since it is not fried and a healthier... More

Sit down and eat in Chinese restaurant I have ever eaten at. The triple delight [steak, chicken and shrimp] was excellent and was the pan fried noodles. The shrimp and steak with rice was also excellent. Everything looked at tasted fresh and well prepared. All the dishes were just bursting with flavor and the servings were generous. If you like...

Some of the best Chinese food I've ever had. The restaurant is clean and attractive. Unfortunately, they don't understand what gluten-free means because I became very sick after eating there. Their food is not gluten-free unless you get a steamed platter. They do serve gluten-free soy sauce. I think when they tell you it's gluten-free they are referring to the... More

I was taken back by the review of rude service. Mine has been anything but that. Have had many different servers and all were courteous and efficient. They have a great lunch value that includes an entree, rice, soup and either egg roll or crab Rangoon. All for about $7.25. Drive through window for pickup. Food is tasty and their... More

We had a party of 9 around 6pm. We had not been to Master Wok since they had moved from their Lee's Summit 291 location to 150 highway years ago. The food was as good as I remembered it. Nice size pour for a glass of wine. Love the spring rolls. Crispy and tasty. Everything was delicious. Can't wait to... More

Carryout on a rainy day - $50 Driving back for the rice they forgot - 40 minutes $10 coupon for next visit instead of apology - really? Carthartic internet review - priceless :-) Rude and uncaring but at least the food was boring and expensive. Wait! That's not right; Chinese food doesn't have to be that way! The best Chinese...

I gave in to cliche and ordered the "General's Chicken" and found to my delight that it was tasty, the batter was crisp and thin (as opposed to thick, chunky and the meat non-existent), the sauce was slightly spicy, and the chicken was succulent and tender. Good stuff. I left happy and I packed some of the big portion to... More

The food in this restaurant is spectacular in my eyes. It's the cleanest and friendliest Chinese restaurant in the area. We, my hubby and I, eat there at least once a week. The owners are spectaculary people and so family oriented. Try it, you will LOVE it!
