Went for dinner with the family.You get a wonderful welcome made to feel part of the place.You are escorted to your table and while perusing the vast menu you are supplied with prawn crackers with satay sauce on the side.A great addition.Service is Efficent but not intrusive and best of all not overpriced.Highly recommend

Was at this restaurant two years ago with my partner and recently again with a friend. The food is just as bad as it was several years ago I opted to give it the benefit of a return visit in the hope it had improved but sadly not! The curry was overloaded with salt and the coconut flavour overpowering. The... More

Situated a very short distance from Motherwell Town Centre the Mandarin has convenient m ample parking to the rear. On entering we were taken to the very last table for two, having not made a reservation we were relieved. This place is busy and it seems we were very fortunate indeed! The bar area to the front of the building... More

We ate from the set menu which was 2 courses for £9.95 or 3 courses for £11.95 (Sun-Thur) I had a curry then banana fritter and my other half had ribs, chicken and black bean followed by apple pie and custard....

we had been looking forward to a good Chinese for some while. However, at £8.95 for 3 courses this really isn't a good place to enjoy Sunday lunch. the 3 courses were very nice, but not a great amount of food served for the price paid. As this has been around for a number of years I would simply suggest... More

Stopped going to the mandarin a few years ago as it had went downhill rapidly and it had the worst staff in any restaurant I had ever been to. Decided wrongly to try it again and if anything it is even worse than previously. Food is incredibly bad and the staff are deplorable. If you think the hup Lee buffet... More
