“Expecting Top Shelf Asian - Don't be Fu'led”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

New, clean, modern style restaurant. Staff was friendly. From order to plate reasonably timed. No bad food, no problem with beverages. Here's the thing though...if you want an exceptional tasting dish, you will be hard pressed to find it. Very ordinary tastes and flavors....across the menu. Price point was decent, so overall I would eat there again....if friends wanted to go. Just would not be my first choice.

“Good, quick Asian choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Mama Fu's is a welcome addition to the quick dining community in Waco. You get moderately fast-food, yet sit in a modern, stylish environment and the food is well-priced and delicious. I love the edamame, flavored tea, and teriyaki. We have yet to have a bad meal. Once, our order was taking a long time to arrive. We checked on it, somehow it hadn't been turned in. The staff offered us full-sized entrees instead of lunch AND gave us a full refund and a $5 voucher to return. That was some customer service right there!

“Slow service, bland food.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

Disappointed. Waited way to long to be seated. Seemed understaffed and disorganized. Prepared gluten free food incorrectly. My wife has been sick all day after eating there. Food was bland and overpriced. I thought this would be a nice new addition to Waco restaurants. I can't come up with a good reason to ever go back.

“Excellent food and service - great Pei Wei option”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

We're been there twice. Both on Sunday's after church. The food came out hot and full of flavor. Service was always right there when you needed something. Its a new restaurant so maybe they have been working out the "kinks" in reading others reviews. I'd very much recommend this restaurant. It's an upscale Asian option without the upscale prices. Atmosphere is modern and a refreshing break from the typical Chinese buffets. Plus, its much more well kept than their local competitor.

“Bad food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

This was a huge disappointment. The food was the worse example of Asian cuisine that we have ever had. The ingredients were fresh and well-prepared, but the flavor was just awful. Just really bad cooking!
