First time buying take away at this restaurant. Our family ordered satay chicken, lemon chicken, curry chicken, fried rice, steamed rice. All generous servings, chicken tender. Delicious flavours. 30 minute wait for t/a worth it. Will be returning.

The place was packed, don't know why as the food was terrible. When we complained about the tasteless, foam-rubber like chicken satay skewers we were told not to order them in future as they are frozen and aren't very good. When we asked about the charred remains on our mixed entre it turned out to be wontons burned beyond recognition.... More

If you want a quick chinese, this is the place to come. However, it is average! I have ordered different meals and a lot of the sauces are similar. Hmm, not normal that's all I can say. Service is quick, they are friendly. But some things are nicer than other's in other restaurants. But that's life, u get to know... More

My Son and I enjoyed our meal at this restaurant they were more than happy to make me a dish that wasn't on the menuwwhich impressed me :) the service was good but not outstanding and the prices were a little high but other than that it's a great place to eat.

Average fair, poor to average service, terrible waiting area for takeaways, no room, cramped, and generally straight out of the 70s needs some major revamps and a redesign to help with patron movements and service. I have persevered for a number of years, but I won't be going back. Much better places go somewhere else.

Arriving late into Lismore we were pleased to see the Mandarin Restaurant still open and close to our motel. Our waitress was cheery and helpful. The menu had plenty of vegetarian options much to our delight. Service was quick and the food excellent and fresh. We would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Have dined several times in-house but usually order take away from the Mandarin. Good food at reasonable prices. Very much a traditional Aussie Chinese Restaurant.

My two kids and I went there midweek for dinner. The service was quite slow, the dish sizes way too small and the prices too high. After the meal even the waitress who served us had to double check the price as she thought it was high for what we had. We won't be coming back.
