The most messy restaurant

Waiters fly everywhere. Soup is coming up when we almost done. I told several times no mushroom, they respond a couple of "yes" and "sure". It turns out I got tons of mushroom. Am I not clear or they don't know English. That would be our last time to be JC Mandarin.

If you are expecting the atmosphere of PF Changs, you won't find it here but what you will find is delicious chinese food in a quiet setting. This is not your usual strip mall chinese restaurant but it is also not upscale like PF Changs. However, the dishes are attractively plated and always fresh and hot IMO. They are not... More

There was so much water/sauce in the food that took all the taste out. When mentioned it to the manger she did not liked our comment at all and start to argue. At the end she just said next time we will ask head chef cook for you!!!!. What an attitude

My wife and I visited here for lunch on a Sunday. We were seated promptly by a rather emotionless female. She was not friendly nor unfriendly. I ordered the Shrimp Sizzling Rice Soup. The title intrigued me. It was a very ample portion in a bowl. The shrimp were cooked perfectly, but the soup did not have much flavor of... More

When we arrived, we were seated promptly. My appetizer, an egg roll, was delivered soon after ordering. It was tasty. I was disappointed that there was only one type of egg roll, chicken. When the meal came, I was shocked at the size of the portion. It was huge. The same with my wife's meal. The food was very good... More

My son and I had dinner and it took 40 minutes to even get our food. The waitress never even got our drinks and only had given us water. The waitress had a bad attitude and never even checked to see how our food was for us after it had arrived. My food was not good at all and not... More

I reviewed JC Mandarin's a couple of years ago and have visited a several times since then. I have seen a clear and decreasing quality of service there. The owners seem to be resting on their past success. A few weeks ago, we stopped in about dinner time on a Sunday. While waiting for someone to seat us, we noticed... More

Staying at a nearby hotel, we ordered carry out. Some of the best Chinese we've had, and we enjoy Chinese a lot. Generous portions without sacrificing taste or quality of ingredients. Fast, courteous service. Reasonable prices. We'd make a point to order here again.

My wife and I have eaten at the JC Manadrin restaurant on 168th street numerous times both for lunch and dinner and have not been dissapointed. The luncheon menu is very reasonably priced and the portions excellent for the money (of course the dinner portions are significantly larger) and a bit more expensive. But for dinner paying $14.95/person for an... More

I usually give a restaurant a couple tries (3) before it goes to the banned list. I had been to this spot on multiple occasions and the food was always decent. On my last trip I ordered some take out of their special Mandarin dish that I have ordered in the past and ended up pitching most of it.
