“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Food is reasonable price and tastes good. Several different types of dishes you can choose from. Combination plates are the best deals.

“Should be called Cantonese Pine Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I had lunch there just today (10-9-12) which is the first time in about two years. The decor is still very nice, the service is much improved, the prices are very reasonable but then there's the food.. It's not Mandarin it's Cantonese and not that great either. I had the lunch combo of pork, fried rice and chow mien. The pork was breaded and slathered with a heavy sauce, the fried rice was only rice without the usual compliments like meat and veggies but both were pretty good even so. The chow mien was just ok because the chopped celery dominated the dish which should have been more skillfully spiced. Mandarin cuisine? Peking Duck, hot and sour soup, stir fry, steam dumplings, and it uses more noodles (wheat) than rice. OBTW, putting the check down just after serving the meal is rude.

“Great fresh food, nice decore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Our family favorite.

The best Pork Chow Mein ever (crunchy noodle)! Mandarine Pine Chow Mein (soft noodle chow mein) is very tasty as well!

Very good Almond Chicken but the breading is a bit excessive.

Try the sizzling chicken with rice! YUMMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY!

“A very good Chinese resaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

We are true fans of good Chinese cusine. We ordered 5 different choices and found each to be authentic, or nearly so, Chinese cusine. The hot and sour soup was excellent. The Lemon chicken was a little too sweet, the pork fried rice was a little too dry (old maybe). Am anxious to try other menu choices.
