First the name is Magical Rice (Not Miracle) I only get take out from here. Being from Michigan they dont have the ever popular almond boneless chicken here or anywhere else in florida for that matter but besides that fact. This is the best chinese take out I have found. Its no golden city in the mitt. but i'm happy to have found it after sampling most in the area. I was about to give up until I found this place. Now if you (the owners) could just take a trip to michigan and sample some almond boneless chicken pry a recipe from them you could be the one and only chinese restaurant that has this dish and receive the coveted 5th green dot.

The new owners forgot to bring a chinese chef, everything we ordered was tasteless, it only had on other table occupied by 2 women, they were at their table chatting a very long time. I didn't think it was possible to find some one to buy this sad establishment, it happened and is worse than it was. We need a sit down Chinese resturant with good food in East Boca, they have all disappeared except for this one and it wont last the way it is.

There is good news and bad news about this restaurant. The good news is that the food is surprisingly good. We have been disappointed so many times with Chinese restaurants in Boca that we almost didn't bother to go. But we've been twice for dinner, and the food has been fresh, hot, well served, and tasty. My favorite is their dumplings, as they are hand made every morning. The dough is thin, and the filling is very good. The bad news is that the owners let their three young sons, (under the age of 6) run around the restaurant with no concern from the adults. This is very annoying and would be the reason we might not return. They seem to want to pursue a take out/delivery business, but since the restaurant setting is nice, and the music is relaxing, it's a shame to waste the ambiance when all they need is a babysitter.

Ignore the bad reviews if your after good vegetarian Chinese food with actual 'faux' meat as well as tofu and vegetable options this is the best place! Prices are good and the people serving us were hospitable and so accommodating. Me and my partner loved it and had a really good experience

Driving by, we noticed the name: "Magical Rice," not "Miracle Rice" as indicated on this TripAdvisor listing, but it is the same place and address. Our hopes were high that we might find good Chinese Food near our new home. We ordered wonton soup, beef with snow peas, and General Tso's chicken to carry out. We know that carry-out food isn't quite as good as when eaten in the restaurant, but we took our chances.

Alas, a major disappointment! The wonton soup was okay, although lacking much flavor. The beef with snow peas was also okay, but not worth returning for. The General Tso's chicken was a serious failure. The huge slices of white meat chicken were each about 3 inches in diameter and heavily breaded. The sauce was a horribly sweet tragedy! We always thought that Chinese food was quickly stir fried in a wok and that it was common practice to cut ingredients into small pieces to facilitate the quick fry. These bad-tasting pieces of chicken were similar in appearance to chicken parm (minus the cheese) at your local Italian eatery.

The bottom line is that we gave Magical Rice a try, didn't like it, and will not return.
