Friendly excellent food

Love the Madarin, it is my go to Chinese out of the good selection in Helensburgh. Run by the very friendly Amy & Kenny who excel at customer service. The food is consistently great, I've had most of the menu!

Lunch is £6.95 a head and includes the starter, main and coffee/dessert. Great value for money unlike other restaurants in Helensburgh - see my Helensbrugh Masala Twist review from 2 weeks ago re the pricing. Food is plentiful, served up with a smile and the soft drinks are not on rip-off prices. They do special Chinese sauces (optional) at no... More

As always, the Mandarin Restaurant never disappoints, we've eaten fixed price lunches and business dinners and family meals here. It has always been good, very reasonable prices for very tasty authentic fare. Top tip, if you want a table for your occasion, definitely book in advance as The Mandarin is busy every night, and does not have an infinite number... More

Fixed price lunch very nice and good value. Staff pleasant and helpful. Would return again. Lovely fish tank in the place which is meticulously maintained and clean. Recently they have put a sarcastic sign in the window about the apparent unfairness of parking charges in the town.

Every time I have been the this restaraunt I have waited at least forty minutes for food. It's obvious the staff could not care less about this. I recently ordered a takeaway and asked for something specific. When I picked up my order the waiter read my order and I agreed it was right. However, when I got home my... More
