Rushed experience

We chose this restaurant in preference to the many local take-aways. We arrived after 9 and it seemed that they were close to closing although there were two tables occupied. We sat and needed to ask some questions about the menu. Wanting a fish option we asked what fish it was. The server checked... read more

Returning from an out-of-town trip, it was almost 9:30p when my friend and I came to Mandarin Chinese Restaurant. We were very hungry! Their door was open, so we went in even though we thought they would probably turn us away. The waiter warmly greeted us, and seated us. People were at two other tables when we arrived, but left...

When we drove up to the restaurant after making a difficult u-turn to get there, the place was busy. So busy, I thought it had to be good....Wrong! The service was slow to non-existent and order sat out so long it became luke warm. The food portions were small and I had a rubber band in my chow mein. When... More

Be careful when paying cash for your meal at this restaurant. I took my family of five to dinner here on 12/5/2013. The bill came to $65.00 to which I handed the waitress $80.00 cash for payment. Since I was expecting $15.00 cash back for my bill, I sat there patiently waiting for her to come back to me. After... More

Chinese menu in the restaurant with a full bar attached as well. I was disappointed not having Barbequed Pork on the menu, but the chicken dish was well prepared. All items are ala carte.

The food was OK, but nothing special. Minimal service or attention for the price. Felt like my presence was an imposition.
