I am extremely picky when it comes to chinese food. And I was pleasantly surprised when I came here for dinner with my family. The service was great and the food was good. We ordered the banquet. What stood out for me was the crispy duck, the sweet and sour pork, and the stir-fry seafood combination was actually my fav.... More

3 of us got a number of various dishes, we all found them to be bland, poorly cooked and low quality ingredients. I had the duck, and they'd used all the grey meat complete with the fatty jelly and slime whereas I'd expect duck breast in a dish like this. The others had similar experiences with their dishes. AVOID!

4 of us dined in the Mandarin room last Wednesday. Whilst the restaurant was not overly busy, we were attended to quickly and efficiently, nothing was too much trouble. The food was simply delicious and plentiful. The flavours were perfect and no trace of the dreaded mono sodium glutamate which some Oriental restaurants use. We were well impressed and would...

After visiting the mandarin a couple of years back & thoroughly enjoying the food, we were massively disappointed on our return valentines night... There were problems from start to finish! Our drink order was taken, wine glasses & cooler placed on the table (but no wine!) and ignored for twenty minutes, the waitress's eventually returned, empty handed, to take our... More

We have been regulars for take outs. But after the last take out which was massively disappointing we have not gone back. This restaurant was an institution in jersey. I hope that get it back to that standard very soon.

The restaurant is smart, clean and airy, albeit a little lacking in character. The food is good and the staff were attentive. The sizzling beef and pork dishes were particularly good.

Arriving at the restaurant we were seated quickly given the choice for our table. Children seated, drinks were offered efficiently. The menu lacks much detail about some of the dishes. We decided what we fancied including a dim sum selection starter, only to be informed they have none and wont have any for a couple of weeks now. Starters came... More
