Great chinese.

Most Chinese in Macon is run of the mill at best, feature too many buffets and poor quality of food, but the Mandarin is different. The Mandarin, at first glance, might be labeled a bit gaudy due to the ornate ornamentation, but the food is well done. My favorite dish is the Princess Prawns... read more

Who would guess that one of the best Chinese restaurants I have ever eaten in would be in Macon, Ga.? I have eaten Chinese food from Shanghai to New York Chinatown, and the Mandarin can favorably compete with any of the Chinese restaurants I have experienced. The Mandarin is physically beautiful, the menu is extensive and interesting, and the food... More

After reading the reviews and just recently moving to the area, I thought I would see if this place could satisfy my craving for Chinese. Mission accomplished! The Mongolian Beef (made it spicy)was good. Their egg rolls were light and crispy. Their hot and sour soup is pretty good also. The service was great. I will be back.

My husband and I stopped by here for a late dinner while spending the night in Macon. The food was great but the service was slow. We were given salads as soon as we sat down but it was at least 10 minutes until we could get the attention of the waitress to let her know we didn't have any... More

We were passing through Macon and my uncle suggested meeting here for lunch. It was a real treat from the wonderful decor to the excellent Chinese food. For lunch you get soup, an egg roll, a chicken wing and your entree for around $7! Five of us ordered different dishes and every one of them was hot, fresh and yummy-... More

On our way from Indiana to Florida and back again we found this gem of a restaurant. Proper sit down Chinese food - not a generic buffet. Recent visits included New Years Eve dinner, lunch time visit. Nice exterior and interior décor - better than most Chinatown restaurants. Lunchtime specials are varied and you get soup, a chicken wing and... More

The décor is fantastic, you'd expect fine dining Chinese form the looks but it's just an average Chinese restaurant. It is cheap, portions are huge. The sweet and sour soup was actually delicious. The eggroll awful...greasy, no flavor and barely warm. I ordered the Mongolian Beef and it was pretty good. I have nothing negative to say about the place... More

Good, old fashioned, ornately decorated (in a good way) atmosphere, and the food and portions are always very good and sometimes outstanding. The Mongolian Chicken and Mongolian Beef are the best I've ever had. Very pleasant service as well.
