Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Welcomed as a walk in . Seated quickly by attentive polite staff. Requested aircon be turned down as draughty seat , offered a move to different seating without question . Mixed emperor starter was tasty and hot, this was followed by mains also tasty and...hot. It’s not the cheapest but …The food and service were both excellent and it’s well worth a visit.More

Been to Blackpool many many times over the years. Haven't eaten in, in many Chinese/Cantonese restaurants. Looked at TripAdvisor and saw this was rated highly. Went today, a Sunday, at after 8pm, and was still so busy that we had to wait for a table....a...good sign right away. The restaurant is lovely, with a good feel about it straight away. Customer service was excellent from start to finish. Food was 1st class. Portions were big! By far, the best we've tasted in Blackpool! Will defo return. Well done all.More

Visited as we were staying in Blackpool, thought I would try the seafood chow mein that I'd seen on social media, it was superb, didn't disappoint, had the banquet starter which was faultless everything tastes fabulous, the staff really make you feel like they value...your custom, service was excellent and I love that we don't feel rushed , got chatting to couple of guys opposite who were locals & felt the same as us & told us how much they love it, wish we lived closer , can't wait for our next visitMore

Our first visit to Blackpool and we were recommended this Chinese by a local resident. Booked for the evening on our first day . Amazing service and the best Chinese we have ever tasted. The portions exceeded our expectations. The crispy duck starter was fantastic...and served to you at the table as if you were in China. All our main courses were delicious and came steaming hot. If we ever return to Blackpool this restaurant would be top of our list.More

We were recommended this place and was really looking forward to eating there. We placed our order and we waited over 50 minutes for our starter to arrive. I asked the waiter about the status of the food and it looked as though he had...forgotten to put the order through. There were several couples who arrived after us and they were served their food before us. When the food eventually arrived it was lovely. It’s such a shame that the service let the experience down, particularly as it was my birthday.More

Absolutely gorgeous, the restaurant decor, the staff and the food were all top notch. We had the banquet starter to share, hot, tasty and plentiful. I had Kung Pao, velvety chicken and just the right amount of spice, and soft noodles. Andy had Schezuan beef...and Singapore mixed noodles, soft beef deliciously spiced. It was great to see Gerwutzstraminer on the wine list - perfect with spicy food and reasonably priced too. Can't fault the staff who were so friendly and welcoming. Totally recommendMore

Excellent service and genuine Cantonese cuisine. Best chicken curry I’ve had in years. Salt and chilli ribs are to die for, portions are generous.

Only ever had amazing service and cuisine, so when it was suggested that we go into central Blackpool for a meal there was only ever one choice. After booking the table on line we knew that we were once again in for a mega treat....As there were 4 of us we booked two of the set banquet options so there would be something for everyone. After a couple of hours we left feeling delighted by the varied taste sensations we had enjoyed, the exceptional service. All four of us would have no hesitation in recommending both the Mandarin and the Wok Inn.More

I would travel miles to eat here, the food service quality is just great. The Mixed starter was plenty and cooked very well. The staff are so friendly especially around the kids, I cannot recommend this place enough.

Our experience was a bit of a mixed bag. The venue itself, and the meal, were lovely. Very good quality food, in plentiful amounts. However, it was very expensive in comparison to similar local restaurants. A meal for three, including drinks and service charge, was...nearly £200. A 10 per cent service charge is added to the bill and though it is not compulsory for tables of less than 6 people, staff do not seem to like to remove it. Personally, I prefer to tip at an amount of my discretion. I also do not feel that restaurant workers are any more entitled to demand a tip than, say, a supermarket worker. Both are on minimum wage, so why the extra fee? Soft drinks are also more ice than liquid, which is frustrating at £4 a glass. Unfortunately, on the basis of the high price and service charge expectation, I would not return. There are other good quality restaurants close by that are much better value.More
