Desiring to try a new place from our usual, we were very pleasantly surprised with the quality and preparation of the food here. Very traditional, but quite delicious. I had the lemongrass shrimp and scallops with an egg roll and Esther had the steamed chicken and veggies. We split the most excellent pistachio ice cream for dessert.

We have a favorite Chinese food restaurant when we visit the area, but we were feeling we wanted something different. We remembered some friends telling us they liked the place and so we stopped in having been by literally hundreds of times over the years. It was quite good and busy. I had the egg roll, lemongrass scallops and shrimp... More

We order takeout all the time from here and they always say it will be ready in 15 minutes. We have also eaten in and the service is excellent. it's a quite place where you can enjoy your dinner with a drink and they even have a section if you are a larger crowd that offers some privacy. The food... More

This excellent neighborhood Chinese restaurant maintains its quality and appeal. The menu may be slightly smaller but it is still large and the food is delicious. Connected by ownership to Cin Cin, another Chinese favorite, every item is 5/5. Service: Friendly, courteous, helpful and prompt. 5/5. Décor: 4/5 Clean and brightly lit. Table cloths and cotton napkins with vases of... More

This was once a great place for good Chinese food. It has unfortunately lost it's luster in both the food and the atmosphere. In need of a total makeover.

We have been dining here for sometime and they never disappoint. We recently tried and absolutely love their featured dumplings, gunpowder shrimp and cumin lamb. The fried rice is also tasty We can't wait to return and recommend their sister restaurants Yangming in Bryn Mawr and Cincin in Chestnut Hill.

Our family has ordered take-out from Mandarin Garden for many years. The staff is always friendly and the food you can count on.

The service is always good. The food fresh and often presented, prepared, and served right at your table. More than just the regular items you see in all the other Chinese restaurants. Although they do have all the old favorites but much better taste. My son had the Capital Pork which was by far one of the best meals we... More
