Best in the Bay

The Mandarin use to be my favorite asian restaurant in North Bay for many years than they sold. While still using the Mandarin name quality went way down for a couple of years. Now under a new name and possible ownership they are trying hard to revitalize that old quality of the Mandarin that I grew up with. Kudos to... More

This place is fairly small, very few tables, and for a Friday night it seemed very inactive. The food was decent, they give big portions. Try and share two or three items and you'll be fine. Pop is just a pop can. The staff does ok, not the best but I've had worse

After getting tired of alot of the Chinese restaurants going to the "order of the menu buffet" style here in the city i decided to give the Manshou a try. I hadn't been there for many years when it was known as the Mandarin, (not associated with the southern Ontario chain). While it could use a renovation, when it came... More

Now known as Manshou, not The Mandarin. Food is fine, nothing special. Prices are fair, service was great. Food came out fast. I can't compare it to the previous restaurant, but my experience was fine, I prefer My Thai, but that's my opinion. Lunch: Wonton Soup - good BBQ Pork 4 Chicken Balls - batter had a slight fishy taste... More

This used to be the best Chinese restaurant in North Bay but the quality has declined noticeably. I recently went here again and noticed it seems to be under new ownership and now has a new name as well. I ordered my usual meal but was surprised at how different it was. The egg roll was ok but the sweet... More

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.
