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.

This Chinese is the best I've ever had. I used to live in Helensburgh when I was wee, then moved to Glasgow, but I still keep coming back for this Chinese. The owners used to own the Ruby (when the Ruby was good) but then bought this place a couple of years ago. The staff are always friendly and the... More
