Don't judge the restaurant by the parking lot

Don't judge the restaurant from the outside. Driving up to the restaurant is very unimpressive. Looks dumpy and "stripmalish". Inside is very clean, elegant, warm and inviting. Food was very good. Ample portions, that was presented professionally. Go inside, ignore outside appearance and expect a... read more

Ample portions, that was presented professionally. Go inside, ignore outside appearance and expect a very nice meal.

We have been getting carry outs from New Mandarin Garden for 25 years or more. Most recently we have food for just my husband and I, however, we have had many family dinners over the years. They are very quick and the food is very tasty. If you want the food mild they will make it mild or spicy it... More

The owners Gary & Jerry are Korean so their Chinese cooking has other Asian influences including Thai as well. Newly renovated, it is a very upscale interior despite the outward appearance of the nondescript strip center in which it is located. The food is innovative and very reasonably priced. My only minor complaint is that the Hot & Sour soup... More

Great food in an unexpected location - hidden off the road in a nondescript plaza. I visited with my friend and her family; they ordered several different dishes and I was able to taste the all. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but the decor inside was clean and tidy. There were renovations in process while we had... More

This restaurant is one of my family's favorite places to eat. We always have excellent food, the owner is very friendly and always welcomes us with a smile. We've already been there twice this week!

They're located in a pretty run-down strip mall just west of Orchard Lake Rd. on the south side of 13 mile. The food was excellent, and they dealt very well with the "special requests" on our carry-out order. It was ready to go on time. While our experience was carry-out the interior looked very nice.

It had been many, many years since my last visit to Mandarin Garden. After watching the restaurant renovation on TV, we decided to give it a try. Gone is the bright red interior and the tacky bar. A sleek black interior is very inviting. Our party of four tried various dishes. Each of us was pleased with our meal. The... More

We frequented this restaurant many years ago when we lived in Farmington Hills, and we returned when we vlisited the area from California. We were totally impressed!!! We loved it when we lived there, but we loved it even more now. We had a fantastic meal. The kung pau chicken and the pad thai were wonderful! Gary and Jerry are... More

Whether you want lunch or dinner, just some soup or spring rolls, you'll dine happily here. The food is always prepared with fresh ingredients and lately the chef has been innovating with quite yummy results! Korean and a Thai dish or two are also featured, but my stand-bys are the double wonder, the szechuan chicken, mongolian beef, and shrimp with... More
