Wide variety of Chinese Dishes, well prepared (no indigestion :-). Nice decor. Attentive wait staff. Good for large groups where we order Dinner for one less than number of persons plus extra egg rolls & soup which gives all plenty of food.

I have eaten at many other Chinese restaurants over the years and I always come back to Mandarin. They are, in my opinion, the best. Yes, the prices are higher than the "fast food" Chinese places. But Mandarin uses better ingredients. I'm happy paying higher...More

You have to try the Mongolian beef. It is by far the best I have ever had. Also the egg rolls and crab rangoon is pretty good. The sizzling rice soup is worth a try too. First class food for a really good price.

Beautiful, calm restaurant with the friendliest of staffs and the most delicious food. We have been coming here since the 1990s and it's unbeatable--haven't found crab Rangoon or Mongolian beef I like nearly as well anywhere in the country (I live in California now).

Visited this restaurant for lunch, arriving later to avoid the crowds around one in the afternoon. There were quite a few people in the restaurant but we were seated quickly. Our waiter came almost immediately and brought us tea and water, before taking our order....More
