A Blackpool institution, The Mandarin has been around for 55 years in Blackpool. My parents regularly eat here in the 60's and 70's when Chinese food was still a newish experience. Now you might be forgiven that they'd rest on their laurels and be complacent. Not a bit of it! Visited with parents, a niece and her fiance. Seated quickly... More

Found it on TA and close to North railway station she went in en route to hotel. Mandarin starter had a range of starters which were all excellent and the dips alongside were the best I have had. I then had the Szechuan beef which was delicious. Service excellent. What's not to like!

We went last wednesday and the food was lovely and service excellent, but we returned on monday and it was just a shambles. We ordered a starter and main meal, the waitress brought the main meal and i said we had ordered a starter, she said she never heard us. She took main meal away and brought the starter. She... More

Visited for the first time on Sunday evening with friends. Found the food to be expensive and very much like the food that can be found in any other Chinese. Drinks are also very expensive,friendly staff though. Gents toilets need to be redecorated or cleaned too. So to be honest we were disappointed with the food.

Thanks for your review. The style of the gents is '1930's Blackpool tram' hence the older-style tiles etc, they are cleaned thoroughly daily and inspected periodically throughout the day (we have a check sheet which the staff sign after each inspection). We'll take on board your comments and ensure this continues. Team Mandarin More

We stepped in and the place was heaving. Thinking it was because of Blackpool being the Mecca for stag and hen dos we thought it would be cheap and cheerful, pile it high Chinese food.
