We have eaten at Great Mandarin numerous times and have never been disappointed. We took friends there last night and the food, service, atmosphere, value were off the charts. Tony and Ha, the owners, greet you as if you were family, are ALWAYS present, which in my book insures good results for a restaurant. The portions are large, the food... More

Since we do a great deal of shopping at the Eden Prairie Center, the Great Mandarin Restaurant is a perfect place to stop and dine - besides the food is excellent. The owner, Tony, is always welcoming and greets everyone with his fun personality.

The manager was very nice. Service was competent but not overly friendly. The atmosphere was very nice. The food was mediocre. Overall, a good place for Chinese food if you're on a budget but I'd hold off for PF Changs.
