Peking duck was great, new
Peking duck was great, new small plates were interesting and properly sized. The server was terrific, very knowledgeable, always available, but not intrusive. The braised pork shoulder was a bit dry this time (ordered many times in the past), but the au jus was great as were the buns.
Hard to beat Margaret Kuo's.

Best Authentic Chinese in the area
We had a wonderful dinner at Margaret Kuo's, from the time we were greeted by our host (who wished our daughter a happy birthday--it was noted on the reservation) to the service, to each wonderful course that we ate. Everything about our experience was great. The food was phenomenal. We enjoyed the way they presented the Peking Duck--with a ceremonial gong, as it came out of the kitchen to the table. The sauteed green beans were loaded with flavor. And the desserts were wonderful, too. The service was very good--not too rushed, but we also didn't feel we waited an inordinate amount of time for our dishes, either. It was our first time there, but we will definitely be back!

Had a quiet dinner at Margaret Kuo's on Sunday evening. The sculptures on the wall set the tone for a different sort of dining experience. The service was gracious, there were numerous excellent food choices and the dinners we chose were outstanding. Having been to Buddakhan a few months ago, I can tell you there's no comparison. Margaret Kuo's would be my choice by a long shot!

Best Chinese in the US East Coast
Four of us (three Chinese from Shanghai and one American) went to Margaret Kuo’s and had a wonderful dinner. We have had the following five dishes:
1. ROAST SHANGHAI DUCK WITH STUFFED EIGHT TREASURES (申江八寶葫蘆鴨)
2. LION’S HEAD, SOUTH OF THE YANGTZE STYLE (江南獅子頭)
3. IMPERIAL SHRIMP (油爆大名蝦)
4. MOUNTAIN YAM SAUTÉED WITH GARDEN GREENS (薺菜山藥)
5. VELVET FISH IN WINE RICE (糟溜魚片)
All these dishes were very special, uniquely presenting the styles and authentic tastes of fine dishes from Shanghai region of China. They were the most delicious Chinese dishes I have had in the US in twenty years. Also these dishes are very favorable to the American who joined us for the dinner. However, the price at Margaret Kuo’s is reasonable and affordable.

I have dined at Margaret Kuo's Dragon's Lair several times before and the food is always consistently good. The service is excellent, very attentive and always prompt. This is truly a great place to dine for special occasions or just for a quick lunch or dinner.

Always a Favorite
This place is one of our favorite restaurants and is reliable for a delicious meal with excellent service. They added a small plates menu to their existing menu. We tried some of those as an appetizer and a side dish. Very good.

Best of the Best
We have been going to Margret Kuo's for a long time and especially like it for the consistency of quality as well as the ambience not to mention the attentive service. We recommend this to all friends and family, and believe anyone living near one of Margret Kuo's restaurants should experience this gem.

2nd visit was a nice as the first
Sometimes I return to a restaurant, and the experience is not as enjoyable as I recalled. At Margaret Kuo, however, the food was great, the service attentive, and the atmosphere relaxed and beautiful. They even managed to please my very discriminating foodie friend. I will return and recommend.

The wait staff was very accommodating & patient while we decided on menu choices. We were pleasantly delighted to find out my friend could order sushi & I was able to order Chinese food in the featured room focused on just Chinese style recipes. All the food came out beautiful & artfully arranged & best pf all delicious!!

Fresh, authentic, sophisticated. Had the shrimp (Imperial) I believe, with a side of the best broccoli in garlic sauce (very light) that I've ever had. The service is friendly yet refined. Many additional options now with small plates available, giving the diner the opportunity to try numerous dishes. Never fails to satisfy.

Wow! What a night!
Fantastic evening. A group of 10 of us celebrating some recent success at work decided to have a group dinner at Margaret Kuo's. We made the right choice! Top notch execution from the host, wait and kitchen teams - not to mention personal visits to the table from Margaret and Warren Kuo to say hello. From the Chinese Appetizer selection - to the GIANT sushi boat, to the individual dinners selected by the team - everyone enjoyed every morsel! A wonderful experience not to be missed! PS the Black Sesame Ahi Tuna dinner on the Japanese menu is definitely the best in the area!
