Always great service at the Mandarin! The staff are friendly. I love the $2 plate share for our kids so much cheaper then having to buy an actual meal for them!

The food was good. Nothing too special as I found hair in my food so I was turned off after that plate. Overall lots of food choices.

Had dinner here in July, the food was excellent, very fresh and appetising. The staff was overly friendly and kept an eye on everything, will definitely be back.

We were visiting family and the Mandarin is their "go to" place for birthday dinners, so we lucked out and went with them. (They take a picture of the birthday person as their thing to do). We were seated after about a 15 minute wait...More
