A consistently great food experience every time we visit.
Fine Dining Experience. Our Chinese Americqn Dining Companions, also rated the experience, very high !
Elegant, delicious meals presented with style and at a sensible price.
Food and service were fabulous. It was my first time at restaurant but I will definitely return.
Fabulous. Always fabulous. Warren is amazing. We ordered the special 7 course dinner and Warren personally explained every aspect and each dish. Wonderful experience.
We always have a lovely time here. Food is excellent. Staff is friendly
Enjoyed the restaurant immensely. Service excellent. Food delicious and the ambiance wonderful. Highly recommend it!!
I would recommend for the food only, service was rushed as the chefs were getting ready to leave. One of our orders was omitted, overall just extremely poor customer service.
Sushi n veg goyza amazing!! Rabbit stew though I would pass. All bones n minimal meat:( love it here n won't let the boney stew keep us away. ..plenty of other delicious choices on the menus!!!!
If you want good Chinese food, this restaurant is ten times better than PF Chang’s! Also great for groups of any size!
Service was terrible. People seating guests, presume the owners, were rude and not accommodating
Always great but on Valentine’s Day didn’t seem crazy busy but they seemed to be having issues. But the food was worth the wait. And the staff did work really hard to make it great.
Lousy service, so disappointed!!!
When we arrived, there was confusion in the hostess area. Eventually, the hostess led us to a table. As we started to sit down, a gentleman stopped us, inquired who we were and then directed that we be re-seated. Apparently that table was reserved for someone else and the hostess wasn't aware. Towards the end of the meal, the same gentlemen came around, quickly moving from table to table, to inquire how we enjoyed our meal. The speed of his passing suggested this action was more of a formality rather than a genuine inquiry. We noted that he didn't appear to follow-through on our request for our check. (Perhaps he didn't hear us given his speed.) Our party definitely agreed that we wouldn't return to this particular Kuo restaurant.
Best Asian restaurant in the Delaware valkey
We had an early reservation on New Year's Eve and were greeted promptly at the wait staff. Our food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. However, my husband ordered three appetizers instead of one entree, and my entree didn't come out until he finished his last appetizer, even though they appeared to be spaced apart. I would have preferred better timing.
Also, the area where we were sitting on the second floor was a bit chilly. We didn't say anything but when a couple nearby voiced a similar complaint, they were moved to another table. I wish I had requested a move as it was harder to enjoy my food with my coat on, although by that time we already had food on the table, and it would have been more inconvenient to move. My suggestion for the restaurant staff would be to be more attentive to the temperature inside.
Food was not the best. Oyster dish had very little oyster. Needs a good cleaning.
The restaurant seemed very understaffed that night. We were seated 30 minutes after our reservation, after people who came in later than us. We received everything we ordered, but several tables around us complained that items were forgotten.
The dishes were of good quality, so I would probably come back again, but not over a holiday.
They took so many reservations that we were told it would be 1/2 hour minimum wait for a table. That is what Open Table is supposed to eliminate. It was bedlam, and there was no organization. It could have been at least 1 and 1/2 hours before food, with a half hour wait for a table, so we chose to leave. Very disappointing.
A disappointing experience. When we arrived there were 20-30 guests waiting in the lobby of the restaurant who had not been able to check in. Some of whom had waited at least for 30 minutes by the time we got there. After waiting for an additional 20 minutes with no movement we were told we could go upstairs to the Japanese section where we could get a table. We wanted Chinese food and we were told we could get Chinese food upstairs. We did get a table upstairs and after ten minutes a waitress appeared. We asked for a Chinese menu. The waitress told up we would have to wait a very long time to get Chinese food as the Chinese kitchen was downstairs. Being frustrated by the experience we opted for the Japanese food. The choices were mundane and poor. I believe that the restaurant overbooked and could not handle the crowd. Too bad because they are better than that.
Noting that Christmas is always the busiest day for the Asian restaurant world. Service was poor and inattentive, food was good, but was received at room temp. ( including the soup), after requesting our check from the bartender, he was the first person to apologize for the service and thank us for our patience and patronage...only thing that saved the experience
This is the second year that we went to this restaurant on Christmas and it never fails to please. We were seated 10 minutes after our reservation time which was amazing for Christmas day. The food was great. Our waiter was friendly and helpful and the restaurant was really quiet so that we could have a real conversation without trying to speak over others in the room. It was a birthday as well and it was the perfect choice for the occasion. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for upscale Chinese food.
Anthony (Kai) was wonderful. In spite of 1 of the busiest nights of the year (Christmas at 6:00), he was gracious and extremely kind making it a wonderful celebration. The food of course was delicious.
We came for Chinese and no one told us they were seating us in the Japanese section and gave us the Japanese menu. Food was mostly flavorless, and the service disinterested. Had to remind them that our meal included soup. No one offered us dessert; we were just handed the check indifferently. For a $70 meal for two, we expect a lot more than “meh.”
The only salvaging star on this was for the food when it finally came out. He service on Christmas was mismanaged and wholly terrible. We waited 2 hours for our food to be told they were out of one of the dishes. And we were one of the fortunate who were at least seated at a table. Even if the fault was the kitchen, our server didn't communicate any delays and was no where to be found to ask for another drink or anything. It appeared that to-go orders were being pumped out at twice the rate of in house dining. We were also not the only customers who had to ask TWICE to place an order. For the price, I am beyond disappointed and I will never go back to this location.
Had a dining room reservation but had to seat upstairs. Served cold tea. Was told my main course was not available when every one else was served their dinner. Will not go back.
There are many good restaurants on the mainline and perhaps this one is past its prime. Sushi was fresh and the other food was okay, but the service was meh and average at best. There is too much local competition for a restaurant to offer this level quality. Hope they raise their quality back to previous standards.
This restaurant is our go to for sushi. There were three of us and we ordered the small sushi boat. It was delicious! Their martinis are also good!
A great meal. The food was wonderful, including the main course they brought that wasn't what we ordered (the waiter made a mistake). But the dish (a combo of shrimp, scallops and chicken) was so good we kept it. Overall, excellent food, excellent service and a peaceful atmosphere.
Beautiful restaurant in heart of Wayne. Formal setting and service, but not so much as to make me uncomfortable. Food is excellent, with lots of variety on the menu.
Good food! Lovely maitre de who was spouse of owner. Interesting menu! Very slow service---as in 15 min. before our wine was brought (even though it was sitting up on the bar ready to serve and there were waiters all over---it wasn't crowded!) Another 15-20 wait after the bill had come and I'd immediately placed my credit card on it in a visible way. Our order wasn't taken till about 25 min. after we'd arrived. Yet the food was very tasty. Nice decor!
Great food and service
The staff was very attentive. We had a small party of 4 people for dinner for an elderly friend's birthday.The menu was so extensive and the food was delicious and beautifully served..Thank you
A rarity to find authentic Chinese on the main line. Very tasty. Great restaurant ant to bring your family because portions are big. Our sever had a lot of personality and had a great sense of humor even though he was really busy! Great experience
good food spo8iled by very slow service. Second time on a Saturday night. No more.
I've been going to Margaret Kuo's for many years and have always received excellent service and great cuisine. Enjoyed authentic Japanese dishes on this visit. Both the Japanese and Chinese options are authentic and are excellent quality and value. Would highly recommend a visit if you're a fan of Asian cooking.
Tim was very attentive to me and my guest. He explained what the items were on the menu.
Service was terrible. Waited a long time to be seated and for our food to come. My waiter wasn’t even that familiar with the menu when we had questions about certain items! Food was lacking in flavor and freshness. I felt my dish was very greasy too. I don’t think I’ll be returning anytime soon.
