After 'out-scandinavianing the Scandinavians' this wonderful Chinese restaurant really hits the spot! Quick service, an adventure in taste and texture, reasonable prices, what more could you ask for. A great place to change pace in Solvang!

I had the sweat and sour shrimp and the wonton soup, my husband had the egg foo yung. My meal also came with two beef sticks, two egg rolls. So much food and it was awesome.

I've been frequenting this restaurant for years, sometimes attending group dinners for birthdays, wedding party celebrations, and just "Girl's Night Out." The outdoor patio is a great spot to have a drink and casual appetizer. Move inside to dine and order from an expansive menu and something from the full bar that is part of this establishment.

A Chinese restaurant in a Danish town is a strange place to go to but.... We go to Solvang after everything was closed we thought, then we ran into a loud music place that happened to have food too. Yes, there is a bar attached and I truly wasn't certain why there was an American style bar with dance music... More

The food was dry, overcooked, and pricey. The alcoholic beverages were priced higher than in a large metropolitan upscale hotel!

Perhaps the reviews saying Mandarin Touch is the "best in town" are because it's the only Chinese restaurant in town? It had been a long day, and I was too tired to walk down to the Italian restaurant my hotel had recommended. Wait staff were attentive, seating indoor and outside was comfortable. I had originally wanted tofu with black mushrooms,... More

I love that this is probably 1 of 2 restaurants that stay open after 9pm on weekends. We arrived at around 11pm and were treated like we were there for dinner at 5pm. We were with a group of friends and ordered a lot of food and everything came out very quickly. Phil, the owner was so charming and friendly!... More
