“Good Reasonable Food”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We appreciated that the restaurant was open late for a meal. We had very friendly, prompt service though not much was said by the help staff. They met our needs. The food was tasty and we enjoyed one of their dinner options with a couple of dishes plus soup and appetizer. Being on a trip we had a good amount of food and were able to eat it all without leftovers - no waste. The only problem that we had was with some residue in the tea cups, so check them before using. Otherwise we had a good experience here.

“WOW ! Was that mediocre.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Recently stopped in the charming town of Solvang on a trip from San Francisco to LA.
We chose the Mandarin Touch based on good reviews from trip advisor. People, have you ever eaten good Chinese food? This was some of the greasiest, blandest Asian cuisine I have ever consumed. Really what one might expect at a fast food mall experience ( i.e. Panda Express).
We ordered and the food literally came out in about 2 minutes. So much for freshly prepared.
Service was friendly and the restaurant was clean. For me it is definite pass.

“Delicious food with attentive staff”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were in Solvang on business and went to this place for dinner with clients on a Thursday night. There were 8 of us and the service was fantastic and the food just delicious, not sure if there was a service charge since the client paid. It was so good my wife and I returned on the Friday night to eat dinner, again the food was delicious and we had excellent service. There definitely was no service charge added to the bill. We will return the next time we're in Solvang.

“Taste for Chinese”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Cute little place with good service. We enjoyed the crab puffs. The War Wonton soup was also tasty. Chop Suey was nicely cooked but better with a bit of chili paste & hot mustard. Service was impeccable.

“Excellent Food and Service”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

My husband and I have eaten at this restaurant with our greyhound, Evan, three times now. Though we only go once a year, our server from last year remembered us! She was so friendly and made sure that our greyhound was comfortable on his pillow, warm under one of their outdoor heaters, and not thirsty! The food speaks for itself - just ask the locals! We have tried several different dishes with each visit and have enjoyed all of them. I really can't say anything negative about Mandarin Touch!
