Great food, but the service was lacking. Our server was perpetually confused and seemed ill at ease. Maybe she's not a regular. But the food was very slow in coming, which is something of an ongoing issue there. As much as we like the food, we rarely get takeout there because it invariably takes far longer to make than at other restaurants, and even longer then their estimates.
it was Christmas Day and they were not prepared for the number of guests. The wait was very long and the service was fair to poor. Again they were not prepared for the huge crowd
Best shrimp fried rice in the tri state. Delicious authentic Chinese cuisine.
Christmas dinner. Food was excellent. Very crowded but service was great considering that the restaurant was packed. We were there for a birthday celebration that happened to fall on Christmas. Recommend anytime. Very professional and organized being the busiest day of the year for a Chinese restaurant.
We always enjoy our meals at Margaret Kuo's. We especially like to sit upstairs in the Wayne restaurant which is pretty and restful. Food is delicious, service always is friendly, and there is a nice wine selection. We often select from both the Japanese and Chinese menus.
Margaret Kuo's is top notch Chinese on the mainline. Only complaint is ordering a cocktail there is an adventure. The waiters don't really have a feel for cocktails so it's hard to get them made "just right."
This is a very lovely restaurant, a short walk from the movie theatre. The food was delicious and elegantly presented. The mushroom soup for two may well have been the best tasting soup I ever tried at a Chinese restaurant. I will get it again. The crispy whole fish was also the best I ever had. Although I have been to China four times, another person at our table goes four times every year. He also raced about the food.
Except for SuGa in town, Margaret Kuo is the best Asian restaurant in a region filled with creative and beautiful Asian restaurants. Try it. You’ll like it.
Margaret Kuo’s is one of our favorite places to eat. The Peking duck melts in your mouth and is extremely tender. Three out of four of us have Celiac and require a gluten free meal. They have gluten free soy sauce and can pretty much make any entree gluten free. I had The general tso’s chicken and it was AMAZING!! So nice to be able to eat Chinese food again!
Great food, excellent service, wonderful ambience. I've been a patron of Margaret's restaurants since she first opened Peking, I believe in the 1970s. I've dined at her Lima, Malvern, and Media locations. But I have to say, her Wayne restaurant is the jewel in her crown. The fare is incredible, and the upstairs dining area, done in Japanese decor, is gorgeous. I would recommend this place highly.
This was my first time at Margaret Kuo's. I set it up so that myself and my two girl friends could meet for dinner. It is nice and quiet so that we were able to have a nice conversation. Staff was very solicitious. Always asking if we needed anything else. Our food was delicious. We started our meal sharing the lobster spring roll- (we ordered two for the three of us)and the shrimp dumplings with soy sauce for dipping. We all had different entrees and everybody was pleased. I ordered the shrimp which came in a brown sauce and it was cooked perfectly.
I will return.
