Korean-style Chinese restaurant

Good foods at reasonable price. Interior looks nice and clean (much better than exterior). I only tried "Jja-Jang" noodle, but I can guess other dishes should also be good. A nice surprise in a small south town.

I know the popular thing to do is to hit the buffet, but I highly recommend you order from the menu and receive the best, freshest product available. Mongolian Beef and General Tso's chicken are two of my favorites along with the egg rolls dumplings!! Always a go to place for me when I can pull out the stops.

Have been here many times over the years abut lately have notice a decided downturn of quality and cleanliness. Floor dirty, booth materials ragged, food okay but not great!

Our first visit to this restaurant today will be our last one. We arrived around 1:00pm for lunch and there was not much left on the buffet. The few items displayed were not only scarce but dry. As we were in the middle of eating, a small roach walked across our table right in front of my plate. We notified... More

I come here sometimes before work. I judge a chinese buffet on the quality of their crab rangoons and I have to say that theirs are pretty solid. The fried rice however is somewhat dry and the sweet and sour soup is somewhat lacking. Other than that it's definitely a choice spot to eat a ton of egg rolls for... More

I took my children out to lunch at Mandarin House and was terribly disappointed. I love Asian food and gave this place a try. The buffet did not have many choices compared to other Chinese buffet restaurants. That was the first thing we noticed. We tried the rice (without veggies) and sesame chicken. The rice was hard and undercooked. The... More

Stopped in with friends when passing through. Had never been before but if we're ever down there again I'll be glad to back in and eat. I had the wonton soup and it was a big bowl for the price. My friends ordered off the menu and got a large portion or delicious food. I rated just very good because... More

Went with the family and wasn't overly impressed. Nothing was bad though and nothing was dried out or appeared to have been sitting for a long time either. The staff was friendly enough and service was good. They had a good variety on the buffet. Didn't try the sushi so I can't comment.

We have a standing joke that started with an old Checkers commercial from a few years back, wherein the semi-popular eatery highlighted the rivalry between the crews that manned their right-and-left side drive thrus. Ever since then, "Left or right side drive thru" has become shorthand for comments pertaining to the duality of some institution. One such place is M-House.... More

Had dinner here on a Saturday with spouse for first time in several years. My good memories were really tested. He chose the chinese buffet, where the chicken (in several presentations) was overcooked/dried out) and egg rolls greasy. I chose sushi (2 rolls) and while presentation was lovely, the fake seafood filling (crab?, was supposed to be snow crab) was... More
