I should make the disclaimer that I didn't sit down at one of the tables to eat but I ordered some food to go. When I first walked in the door I was greeted by a staff member who I then told that I wanted order to go. He told me to wait a few minutes. During this time period... More

Too bad Chinese restaurants did away with the tops on their food. I like to order 4 or 5 dishes and the food comes out on plain plates and gets cold before you have a chance to eat it. The chicken with snow peas was very good. The crab rangoon didn't come within 20 miles of a crab. The salt... More

I usually rate Chinese restaurants based on their egg rolls and fried rice. I didn't have egg rolls this time, but the fried rice was cold, bland and greasy. The kung pao chicken was mushy and parts of it were cold, but the celery in it was perfect. My husband had Beijing chicken and it was amazing. So, hit and... More

Magic Dragon is the best Chinese food Restaurant in Santa Maria! Housed in the old Landmark Building across from the Santa Maria Inn, the menu has a plethora of delights to choose from- including sushi- and the food is great! There's a reason tourists from China eat here! Pricing is reasonable,as well.

This is not the only Chinese restaurant in town, but overall, it is the best. Lots of choices, nicely prepared and served hot and fresh.

The property is large, very nice and clean. Food is pricey for portion size and quality. Most dishes came out in a few minutes from ordering and were a bit soggy like it was pre made and then microwaved. There were about 3 other tables and several waitresses that just all disappeared towards the end of dinner. Could be better.
