Magic Wok was established in 1977 by Raymond and Grace Lee, and Tommy Ng, who is Grace’s brother. They and their families emigrated here from China. Our original location, at 50 S. La Grange Rd., made... us the first Chinese restaurant on La Grange Road in our suburb. In 1991, we expanded and moved to our current location at 23 W. Harris Ave. We also became one of the first establishments to hold a liquor license in La Grange when the village approved liquor sales in the mid-1980s.
To this day, we're known for having the best Mai-Tais in town, and we offer many other tropical and alcoholic drinks from our full service bar. We always offer the freshest food; our ingredients are delivered daily from our suppliers. Each of our dishes starts with a base of fresh chicken broth that we constantly maintain in a 22-gallon pot. This means we do not have to rely on using MSG to season our dishes. Many of our customers have complimented us on having the best egg rolls they have ever tried. (We're not just about Chinese food either--some customers say we also have the best hamburgers in town!)
