A little bit of mandarin heaven in the middle of a Danish village! I am not affiliated in any way with the restaurant and live over 100 miles away, but while visiting, we were told by the Holiday Inn manager, Sheri, to try the Mandarin Touch. It was perfect. Food was not greasy, fresh and unique flavors, and a good... More

We appreciated that the restaurant was open late for a meal. We had very friendly, prompt service though not much was said by the help staff. They met our needs. The food was tasty and we enjoyed one of their dinner options with a couple of dishes plus soup and appetizer. Being on a trip we had a good amount... More

Recently stopped in the charming town of Solvang on a trip from San Francisco to LA. We chose the Mandarin Touch based on good reviews from trip advisor. People, have you ever eaten good Chinese food? This was some of the greasiest, blandest Asian cuisine I have ever consumed. Really what one might expect at a fast food mall experience... More

My wife and I were in Solvang on business and went to this place for dinner with clients on a Thursday night. There were 8 of us and the service was fantastic and the food just delicious, not sure if there was a service charge since the client paid. It was so good my wife and I returned on the... More

Cute little place with good service. We enjoyed the crab puffs. The War Wonton soup was also tasty. Chop Suey was nicely cooked but better with a bit of chili paste & hot mustard. Service was impeccable.

My husband and I have eaten at this restaurant with our greyhound, Evan, three times now. Though we only go once a year, our server from last year remembered us! She was so friendly and made sure that our greyhound was comfortable on his pillow, warm under one of their outdoor heaters, and not thirsty! The food speaks for itself... More

We stayed in Solvang on Valentine's night, and when we checked into our motel and asked for dinner venue suggestions we were told the Mandarin Touch was probably the ONLY place that could accommodate us without a reservation, and after 7pm! Unlike other reviewers we found the staff welcoming and helpful, and certainly didn't experience any pressure with tipping. The... More

Be careful! Mandarin Touch will automatically add the so called mandatory tips to your bill, even though we only had 5 people and there was not any service during our meal. Surprisingly, the tip rate is about 19% on the money after Tax, and over 20% pretax money. No need to mention that they will round up the total amount... More

I've been to the U.S over 25 years and have dinned in numerous places, but this is the worst, worst restaurant that I've ever been to, The price is ridiculously high while the food is unbelievably bad. I doubt the chefs were Chinese. The restaurant is simply trying to rip off the diners. Worst of the worst is that it... More
