Delicious Food, Best In The City

I ordered a meal of spicy squid, rice, and a spring roll for myself from Mandarin Palace. Though the spicy squid was tasty, I wouldn't consider the small meal worth the $30 it cost with delivery. I'd recommend the restaurant if you're sitting in, but I wouldn't recommend ordering-out.

Went with a large group for a birthday party. I'll get the only knock I have against the place out of the way first: with our group, getting our food was slow. It wasn't a matter of slow service in general as the staff were friendly and responsive, and the tea came quickly. The kitchen just didn't have enough staff... More

It is perhaps my favorite Asian restaurant in Fredericton to eat at. Their wong tong soup is fantastic, their crispy beef is unbeatable and I love their crispy duck. Excellent spring rolls. It's Fredericton's best kept secret. I give it a BIG THUMBS UP!!!!

The food here is delicious - but I have only ever eaten from their "authentic" menu. It is NOT the menu they give you when you are seated, so you have to request it. Try the spicy beans, or the smells like fish pork/eggplant. Seriously delicious. Service can be rather slow, especially if you are in a large group. Best... More

We were recently travelling through the Maritimes and were looking for some good Chinese food. We found Mandarin Palace on Trip Advisor and were wary based on some of the reviews - but this place was excellent - and totally comparable to some of the best meals we've had in Chinatowns in Toronto, Vancouver, and D.C. The decore is a... More

I decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews found here despite previous bad media attention they've received. I ordered take-out using the menu found here. When I showed up, I noticed that I was being overcharged for one of my dishes. I mentioned this and was told that the prices had gone up. I paid and waited for... More

Try the squid in hot pepper salt or the spicy fish soup for something different...or the crispy beef, curry dishes, General Tao chicken...We have had these dishes many times over and will continue to go back. Always happy with this great place and friendly service - though we always order take out, so can't comment on eat-in experience!
