“Good Chinese Food”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A friend and I have season tickets to the Opera at KC - this restaurant is close to the KC and has excellent food, served very fast. A nice walk from the restaurant to the KC sets us up to enjoy the opera even more. We have tried many other restaurants in the area and this is the favorite.

“Fast Service & Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Located inside a shopping center courtyard, Magic Gourd served up a wide variety of Asian staples at amazingly reasonable prices for the District. The food was good, although not particularly exceptional. Servers were very friendly.

“A little rough, not my go to”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

MSG and poor form. Stay away if you can. Its a move of desperation. The sauces are gloppy and food is not fresh

“Reasonable food in a good location!!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

It is a regular Chinese food restaurant. You can eat inside or take-out for the plaza. The location is very convenient for those visiting the Lincoln Memorial, Kennedy Center, or the Mall in general. Many customers are from the government offices around its location, and they enjoy it for a long time. It is not expensive and give you a break at lunch.
