The food is excellent and has some of the pizzazz that the Ruby used to have. However, the time they take to prepare your takeaway food is a joke and just not feasible. The restaurant itself is not particularly attractive inside so we don't feel particularly compelled to eat in either.

Was wanting a nice tasty Chinese takeaway as we were staying the night in HELENSBURGH and we really didn't know which one to choose from. So glad we picked the MANDARIN. Really nice friendly staff also. Excellent!!!!

I have both eaten in & got take away food from the Mandarin on numerous occasions & found it to be fantastic & flavoursome! Their crispy beef is lovely & their salt & pepper chips are tasty! They also do a really good lunch deal Monday to Saturday!
The staff are very friendly & efficient and the premises is clean, tidy & fresh.

My only complaint would be the wait for a take away at peak times i.e. Friday & Saturday nights. Be prepared to wait at least an hour even if they say it will only take half an hour! It is worth it though!

This is my 3rd visit to this restaurant. The food has always been of the highest standard one of the best, if not the best chinese restaurants we have been too! The staff are helpful and friendly and couldnt do any more! They need to open a branch in Liverpool so I can visit more often! Will be back again throughout the year no doubt during my visits to Loch Lomond!
