Great selection on the menu and we picked a dinner for two. The portions are huge and we took 50% home with us. The amount of food could have been for 4 people - so select carefully. It tasted delicious and the service friendly, fast - excellent value for your money.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quantity and quality of delicious food! We will certainly stop there again when traveling through North Bay! Very reasonably priced too!

I used to think that this was the best Chinese food in North Bay, but that is no longer the case. We recently ordered a dinner for six and it was very disappointing. The sweet and sour sauce was thin and watery and the honey garlic sauce was REALLY thin and watery. I can't recall ever being served anything that... More

We usually gladly make the 1 hour drive to eat at the Mandarin but the last couple of trips the food has been average at best. This is disappointing since the food use to be some of best Chinese food I've ever had.

The food is still good but I would have to say not as... More

You just can't beat the selection, service and pricing at this franchise. Well worth the money and the wait.

You never want to be in a hurry when dining in or taking out. Food is cooked fresh and is well worth the wait. Our family has been eating here for 10 years. I always make sure I order enough to have seconds the next day. Best Chinese in and can't wait to have more of their food.

Great chicken balls - they actually contain good sized meat portions with little breading. Very good honey garlic ribs. All the food is served fresh and hot. Good value.
