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.

Visited this evening for the first time with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Absolutely amazing food and even better service! Our waiter Jay was very attentive as were other staff, drinks filled promptly, lovely break between courses. Absolutely cannot fault anything. We had...the set banquet, a little over £40pp, it was worth every penny!! Can't wait to visit again!! Also thought it was a lovely little touch of decorations on our table to celebrate our anniversary!More

The service in the mandarin is exceptional from when you first walk in till you leave. Nothing is too much for the staff. The food is exquisite and fills you up. Nothing is overpriced and would highly reccomend this place to anyone (which I do)

Been coming to Michael Wan’s for over twenty years and this is the first year I have not been able to give it 5 stars. It is now getting to the stage of two things that will make me hesitate in going again: Cost, at...over £120 for a dinner for two with one wine and two soft drinks the food has to be perfect and it wasn’t.. pancakes with aromatic duck came out undercooked and stuck together and the house special curry way over too much watery sauce with too many onions compared to the more expensive meats. In my opinion the restaurant is edging towards overpriced and poorer quality food; staff though still very friendly and working hard for the customer. Shame but I suppose changes happen and sometimes good things come to an end!More

This continues to be my husband and I favourite restaurant in this area, if not the UK! The food is just glorious, staff attentive and friendly and efficient and the whole ambience just adds to the experience. It isn't the cheapest option but you get...what you pay for. Can really recommend but you are advised to book.More

What a fantastic experience we had at Michael Wan’s Mandarin. The food was absolutely delicious, great portion sizes and so full of flavour. The staff are also incredible and so well mannered and attentive. Big thank you for surprising me with a slice of Vienetta...when you found out it was my birthday. Delicious meal, great staff, highly recommended.More

We had researched where to eat for our visit to Blackpool and Mandarin was on the short list. It was then recommended by a friend so the decision was made and we were not disappointed. We had the mixed starter to share - satay skewers...and ribs were amazing. We the had the prawn with ginger and spring onion and king pao chicken...wow. Topped off by great service. If you visit Blackpool and want great Chinese food then Mandarin is the place to go.More

This was recommended by another restaurant who couldn't accommodate us and I'm so glad. Food was superb, staff were fantastic and atmosphere was amazing. This was a family birthday celebration and the staff went out of their way to help us celebrate. Definitely return.

This was our first visit to this restaurant for several years. It was comforting to know that the standards have not dropped and we enjoyed wonderful food in a friendly, relaxing and welcoming environment. Although the restaurant was very busy on an early Sunday evening,...nothing was too much trouble and the owner personally arranged our food to ensure that those of us who do not eat pork could be easily accommodated. The selection of starters and main dishes arrived seamlessly: the food was hot, well cooked and delicious. This restaurant is a jewel in the heart of Blackpool and long may it prosper.More

Got to say this was an easy review to write. Welcoming staff, food was delicious. Last time we were there was 5 yrs ago, but due to lockdown and coming from Wales this was the first time to revisit . The owner took time out...to talk to us several times as if she was our best friend, a very personal touch . Well done to all. I will definitely go back on our next visit to Blackpool.More
