Definitely worth a visit this place, very popular so I would suggest you book ahead. The food is amazing and the staff and service is excellent. I would struggle to say anything negative about this place. Definitely a great Chinese and definitely worth a visit !

My partner and I have just returned from our 5th visit to the mandarin and it definitely won't be our last! Having attended for the first time earlier this year in February, we can't seem to help going back time after time. The restaurant itself has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are wonderful. We are always made to feel... More

This is a great little restaurant. The staff are really friendly and attentive as is the lady owner who explained about the tofu dish she created which was very tasty. Little not to like. Personally I would drop the tacky music being played and play some oriental songs to make it more of a atmospheric experience and less Blackpool

We booked here for my husbands 40th birthday celebration meal, I booked the table in advance and it was decorated for his birthday. We had a slight wait for our 8pm booking but only a few mins in the bar area. We ordered a banquet and the food was fantastic, the aromatic duck was outstanding. The place was really busy... More

Recommend you book in advance. We did but still had to wait 1/2 hour for our table. Which you can expect as the staff don't pressure you to eat up and leave. Unlike other establishments. The food was very nice and everyone in our party commented on how lovely the food was. However I am a vegetarian and didn't fancy... More

Went last time we were in Blackpool and enjoyed it so much decided to try it again. Took advantage of the early evening offer, mixed starters then choice of mains with rice. Starters were amazing and plentiful, ribs, prawn toast, spring rolls, chicken satay and seaweed. For mains we opted for chicken with vegetables in garlic sauce and kung pao... More
