Good and consistant

Went with five friends, everybody ordered something different. Everybody was satisfied and said their food was good. I had House Chicken ( always do) and it was very good. The item is always consistent and the service is excellent.

Many people love Mandarin. I've eaten at a lot of restaurants and consider myself a foodie. I'll eat/try almost any food. I love Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean foods. I did not find this food authentic. It was super Americanized and super SALTY. I will not be going back.

When thinking of "the" place to get real Chinese food, the Mandarin is the place to go. Great service and great food make the right combination for an enjoyable evening out. My wife has gone vegetarian, and has no problems here. I am very pleased with the menu, especially the sweet and sour chicken.

My best friend and I love to dine at The Mandarin Chinese House. The cuisine is delicious and the atmosphere is delightful. Keep up the amazing work.

I really am not a fan of Chinese food but this is the only Chinese restaurant I will eat at. The food is so good! I recommend splitting a dinner plate bc they give you a lot, but not at lunch. Lunch is a smaller portion, but plenty to eat. Sometimes we have slow service but the food is worth... 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

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, which are always delicious and can...

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
