Classic chinese, good!

Let's ignore the bad stuff here. Service was excellent, food was very good, not the end of the world, but decently good. Locals seem to love it as many guests knew each other.

I swear I only go here because my son loves Chinese food. If it were me... I'd wait till I was in Santa Barbara to get good Chinese. The service, not matter how empty it is, is terrible. There's area always a lot of staff around. The food does come pretty quick, but if you're waiting to order, missing something... More

We went here on a Thursday evening. Not wanting to drive to Buellton, we walked to this restaurant. There were several customers waiting for a table, but the owner did an excellent job of finding us all tables in a reasonable period of time. When he seated us he made sure a waiter was right there to take our order.... More

Atmosphere and food was excellent. We had so much food left over that we ate it for lunch the next day. Would definitely go back.

Looked nice but was empty on a Tuesday night...we were seated in a basically empty restaurant and no one came to greet us, take and order....nothing....after 15 min. I went to find someone and the wait person could have cared less....needless to say we left and found a restaurant with service. Mandarin "Out of Touch".

Being Chinese, it's important that the food tasted authentic and this restaurant definitely passed the test. Enjoyed the choices in the food and the ambience of the restaurant was nice. Next door was the pub where we had a few pints and listened to the music that was spun.

A very enjoyable experience with tasty freshly cooked food. Ordered various dishes which we all tried.The staff were attentive, and the food arrived in a timely manner. By the time we left at 7.30pm the restaurant was full, which speaks volumes about the success of the establishment.

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
