“Do Not Be Turned Off By The Exterior”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

The Mandarin is a Saskatoon institution. It is located in a nondescript building a new blocks from the city centre. Your first impressions will be unfavourable -- a tatty entrance, an unimpressive lobby and a seemingly noisy restaurant. It gets better. The main dining room is light and airy. It is filled chock-a-block full with locals. This is generally the best dim sum restaurant in the city. The food is fresh, there is a great deal of choice, the pork buns are terrific, and the service is fast and efficient. This is a great place to dine casually with friends. Enjoy the din (it is a tad noisy, as are all good Chinese dim sum restaurants), but the prices are very attractive and the food is great.

“always look forward to dim sum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

We frequent here for dim sum. The food is very good and there is a good variety of dishes brought around. The price for each dish is very reasonable. Our favorite is sticky rice, we never leave without having some.

“The Jewel In The Crown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

There is NO OTHER place like this anywhere in the entire province of Saskatchewan. Everything is made in-house. Everything is made fresh daily. Every bite is a taste explosion in your mouth. If you want to truly impress your friends, your family or your boss then this is the place to take them. Simply incredible.

We go here 3-5 times a year, and always love it. Would go more often if we could!

“Not for me.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011 via mobile

Some people love this place but I find the food greasy and the atmosphere lacking.
