Use to be great - but now it's good

Still one of the better chinese restaurants in the area and worth a trip. The food here is very good - it used to be great but changes of ownership have changed the dishes and quality a bit.

The Ivory Mandarin Bistro was my favorite Chinese restaurant for many years. Now, under new ownership, it is the worse I have ever had! I could not eat my dinner. The egg rolls were served on a plate with a lot of grease. We will not go back.

Very disappointed. This used to be my favorite Chinese restaurant. The food is nothing like it used to be. Service was very poor. The fortune cookie was so stale it was inedible. Will not make a return visit.

UPDATE! The Ivory Bistro is under new management. I stopped for dinner with friends on 7/31/2015 and was very pleased with the experience. Service was great, very attentive to our needs. Each of us ordered off the revised menu and really enjoyed our meals. The Egg Rolls are amazing along with their spicy Hot N Sour soup. I had the... More

I love the kung pao in its vegetarian form. Tasty sauce and crispy veggies. Very good! I could order it every week. The Ivory is near me, so walking there is a good option for me.

We ordered the PuPu Platter (which is Great and has several different items on it with a flame pot to heat with) and a meal of Szechuan pork that came with Hot & Sour Soup. The food was great and we always ask for no onions which they did without any trouble. There are some great prices on drinks. Overall... More

Wow, after 10+ years, this place isn't doing it anymore. The price wasn't great either. $60 for 3 people eating plain combo meals (although not during the lunch $5.99 special time) kind of outrageous for the area, and the food wasn't worth it. We bussed our own table, everyone got meals at a different time, had to ask for silverware... More

It's a sad day when a place that we counted on for the only decent Chinese food in North Pinellas changes one time too many and we start looking for other options. And that is exactly what happened tonight. When we started coming to Ivory Mandarin Bistro before my 13 year old son was born we thought we found a... More

We were regulars at this Chinese restaurant, winner of a number of awards in the Tampa Bay area. A year ago we noticed the lady who ran it was not there regularly, the food was not as good and the attitude of the servers had changed for the worse. Decided to give it a try again a few months later... More

Well....Let me start off by saying that we went for the five twenty five lunch special...That,really should have nothing to do with the service or the food...But...Maybe it does....Anyway, we were seated by a very pleasant lady,who also cleaned the tables and took the money.The waitperson was slow with the crispy won tons and the sweet sauce,not to mention that...
