We visited this restaurant about once a month for dinner. The restaurant is clean and the staff very polite and helpful. Light could be turned down a notch for a little more atmosphere but the food more than makes up for the bright light. They do not serve beer or wine any more so that is kind of a downer... More

This chain restaurant (Lee's Summit and here in Independence) had an excellent reputation years ago. Alas, it now serves mediocre food. Service is erratic. I had the "Gourmet Dinner" @ $15.99 and a diet coke. The coke was watered down, or the dispenser needs to be rechecked. The "Gourmet Dinner" featuring chicken w pineapple was many things; gourmet it was... More

Visited Master Wok of Independence and much to my dismay was not impressed. Food was average, not nearly as good as I expected. Was disappointed that this location did not serve alcohol as indicated on the website. Maybe the other locations serve alcohol but Independence did not. On a positive note, the service was excellent and very quick.

I often recommend Master Wok for its food, service, location, and even drive through service! One of my favorites is their Tropical Fried Rice served in a fresh half pineapple! Their lunch specials are a great value also.

My wife and I decided to stop off for Chinese on a Friday evening. Upon arrival, the parking lot was very full. We were pleased to be seated immediately after the family that arrived before us. We are familiar with both locations and the menu and had enough time to make our selection when the waitress asked us for our... More

Master Wok isn't fancy, and the fare is fairly standard. It's not the best Chinese restaurant in town, but it's a good one, and they accommodate special food needs.

I am a big eater but I had to get a box. I couldn't finish all the delectable well sized portion. It's affordable and delicious.

Always good food and service. Hot and sour soup is my favorite. The waiters are always great. I always enjoy eating here. My teenage children love the little candies they give.

Great atmosphere and the cuisine is even better. Portions are large enough for 2 to share and leave full. My husband and I share a meal that has appetizer,soup, entree , and dessert for $15.00.

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
