I went here on a date a few weeks ago, and my experience was so-so. The salt+pepper calamari appetizer I ordered was really delicious (and came in a large portion), as were the spring rolls. However, the sushi I ordered for my entree was only mediocre. They were small-ish (but 8pc), basic rolls - the only difference between a "spicy,... More

I ordered Orange Chicken, Dumplings and Vegetables along with Rice and Noodles. Chicken was stale and overcooked. Dumplings were not even cooked and I feel I am eating raw flour. How can a chinese restaurant go wrong with dumplings and orange chicken. I usually do not write reviews, not with average or below average food.But today I do. Because it... More

I have been looking for a good Chinese restaurant in Reston. Ma Ma Wok is convenient, has a very broad menu of Chinese, Thai, and Japanese including sushi. I had the basic kungpao chicken and even though it was labled as spicy it was bland, bland, bland. Also I had tasteless spring roles. I think MMW has forgotten the flavors... More

Mama Wok is hidden inside a half-deserted shopping center but inside it is a quiet and elegant place. The food is very authentic Chinese and is priced right. Service was polite and effective. We loved the fried rice and lo mein we had and we would definitely come up whenever we are in Reston.

Came here for a business dinner. The restaurant is located in a small half-vacant shopping mall in a cluster of other small restaurants. Service was fast and friendly, but no-nonsense. Food was served quickly, and the waiter was observant to refill water and ask if the dishes were okay. I thought the menu was better than the usual Chinese restaurant,... More

Mama Wok is an affordable Chinese restaurant about ten minutes east of Reston Town Center in the half-empty Tall Oaks shopping center. Run-down strip-mall setting aside, it's a solid Asian restaurant that offers a traditional Chinese menu, an Americanized Chinese menu, and a Japanese menu (including sushi). I've eaten here half a dozen times, and although nothing on the menu... More

The décor is tastefully done. The food is equally tasty. We enjoyed the seaweed salad, dumplings, beef Szechuan, and sizzling shrimp and scallops. All were very good. The service was excellent. There is a small bar but they only serve beer, wine, and sake. The fireplace was a nice effect, They have Chinese and Japanese food on the menu. The... More

I eat here all the time, but only when I can afford it! The food is always great, but it's also very expensive for what you get. At those prices I would expect a lot more food with a takeaway box.

So, we're an American couple who likes asian food, and we thought it was ok Chinese food. But all of our Chinese friends go here and rave about it - so it must be good. Some of the meals are very good, but some aren't - it's definitely hit or miss. The decor is quite nice, and there is plenty... More
