Brilliant service, fantastic warm welcome and the food was top class. As vegans, it's often hard to find a restaurant that caters for us, but in this, we have. Superb.

Picked this restaurant as we wanted a Chinese meal, but had not visited Blackpool fr many years. This restaurant being number 1 for Chinese food in Blackpool, we though that this would be a good bet. We were surprised to see a live saxophonist playing to diners! The menu here was good, staff god and food excellent. Would recommend this... More

The staff were absolutely brilliant. We went here after a friend recommended it and they were there that night also...!!! The food was beautiful and a wide range to suit everyone. They did not rush you out after you had finished but then again in was the middle of February. A must if you visit Blackpool

There's a reason the Mandarin has won several awards over the the 56 years they have been open, they're one of the best in the country at what they do. The restaurant is what I would consider to be an institution that has stood the test of time (whereas so many businesses fail) in this small seaside town. My personal... More

Thank you for your glowing and eloquent review :-) How heartening it is to hear how much our customers enjoy our food, it make all the long hours and hard preparation work worthwhile. The wonton noodle soup does take time because, as you say, even the wontons are made by our chefs but when they hear comments like these it... More

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise to find in the heart of Blackpool. With lovely, modern and clean interior, very attentive waiting staff and delicious, good quality food, I would recommend. We ordered set menu B: a mixture of starters, soup and a selection of delicious mains. Would return and recommend!

Yes, of course there are niggles such as the service charge (which is optional) and actually in my view works against them as most of the complaints centre around this on Tripadvisor along with bookings, food and waiting. However, this is our fourth visit (we travelled from Glasgow to visit Blackpool but this is always our highlight event of the... More

This is the best Chinese restaurant I have ever been too. The service is quality, the food is unbelievable and the atmosphere is absolute class. If you live in blackpool or visit blackpool you need to eat here first before you go anywhere else. The chicken satay is on another level, it's just outstanding overall. This is the 8th time...

Went at short notice on Saturday night had to wait but worthwhile good choice of dishes, food reasonably priced, drinks as is the norm a tad expensive. Enjoyed the night and the staff whilst busy got on with the job. As a last minute jaunt it convinced me to go again with a bit more planning and notice!
