The annual carnival was in town but the establishment wasn't prepared for the influx. The food was good but took a long time to come. Drinks had to be reordered. They tried to charge us for someone else's food and the reordered drinks. At payment the fellow was good. Understood the problems and removed the extras.

It is difficult to say a particular restaurant has one of the best meals you have ever had in a restaurant. While Mandarin Palace is very acceptable, it is not Flower Drum for example. Having said that, I only ordered takeaway and was pleased with the results. Service was friendly and relatively fast considering how busy it was - probably... More

We booked for a table on a Monday night - glad we did! It was very busy. The food was great, the service friendly, and when there was an issue with my partner's dinner, the staff dealt with it professionally and quietly.

Just had dinner there and I am still hungry! The portion size was a rip off, cost me enough $$ I just wanted a nice meal not to be left feeling like I have been scamed.

I was in Lismore for work and was craving rice. Mandarin Palace was only 1 of a couple of Asian restaurants open 7 days a week for dinner service. Was helpful since not much was open on a Sunday night in Lismore. I didn't dine in, so my whole experience was take away. I called over the phone to place... More

We ordered take away last night. Service was quick. The quality of ingredients was quite good, but we didn't find it very tasty. We ordered BBQ Pork Buns as entree (I had a bite, but gave the rest to hubby. Tasted under-cooked to me). Mongolian Beef - not at all flavoursome - and Honey Prawns, which were very stodgy, as...

The food was full of MSG, I was up all night drinking water. It had flavour and the service was good but it was a dark dingy '60's Chinese restaurant. Stay with the Chinese Kitchen at Wollongbar Never again

Love the consistency of this restaurant. I've had sit down lunches, take away lunches, dinners and take away dinners and I can honestly saying every meal is as good as the last. Staff are friendly and helpful and it's good value for a family. It's one of my children's favourite places to grab a meal and we're happy to accommodate.... More

Very tasty and quick food. Price was so so. Think for the price it should have included a bowl of steamed rice. The rice ordered on the side was a small serving for price. My husband had shut his finger in the car door as we were getting out to come in for dinner. So, we were slightly discombobulated while... More

The food is predictable regional Australia Chinese/Thai fare (although the Laska is fantastic) BUT the food is quick in arriving, reasonably priced and the staff are lovely. Perfect place to take the kids.
