The flavor is ok, price is acceptable. Pretty near to the airport. May come again if have chance. Service is fine, not a lot to choose.

Looking for lunch before our flight out of SanFran and picked this Mandarin on a whim out of many asian resturants huddled together. Crispy rice was a unique and awesome treat. My wife had Lemon Chicken and I had Walnut Prawns. Perfectly cooked and truly delicious. Come hungry 'cause the portions are large.

VERYcasual. A little too casual for what i was looking for. Food is good, service is a bit quirky, but overall a decent experience.

We went here yesterday and I am compelled to write a review so if you are looking for a chinese restaurant, you know what you will get if you go here. We were looking for an "authentic" Chinese restaurant near the airport to celebrate our last night in SF. Our usually-reliable Trip Advisor rated this restaurant well, so we went for it. It was OK, but not what we were looking for. Much smaller portions than what we are used to. Dishes were bland of flavor, except the bok choy with garlic was very good. Limited "chinese" vegetables - only bok choy - to choose from. The Happy Family scallops were BAD (inedible), mushrooms were bitter and some of the tofu was sour. This is a mediocre suburban Chinese restaurant, but it is close to the airport and the service is quick, nice and kindly. As we were driving out on El Camino back to the airport, several restaurants looked like more of what we wanted, but it was too late. So, if you are looking for more of a chinatown experience, but you need to stay near the airport, take a ride down El Camino in Millbrae and try one of those restaurants. Then come back to Trip Advisor and write a review so I can try it!
