Great service from attentive staff, food was awesome and very reasonably priced. Always busy so it would be a good idea to book ahead. Loved the whole experience.

When my wife saw the restaurant she wanted to try it but the first day it was closed because it was late and we had to take away the food, we arrived the hotel and the soup was still hot and my wife loves it so much so she decided to dine in the second day, so we went there... More

I visited here for a family meal at the end of June. There were 7 of us in our party, two of us are coeliac. The meal was fine, nothing more or less than expected! We did find though that not all staff are "au fait" with the dietary requirements of a coeliac sufferer, one member of staff said the... More

Visited the restaurant this evening - staying over in Derry (on route to 'The Giants Causeway' - on my Bucket List!). Cannot praise the place enough - was very busy early evening on a Wednesday, mostly families having a great time, but no problems finding us a table. First thing to impress was how friendly and organised the staff were... More

Mandarin palace is a great place to eat in Derry and it has the lovely location of being right on the quay, the chicken chow main is a gorgeous dish that I would recommend

We booked a table for 3 on a Saturday evening, the restaurant looked very nice and the food was good. The feeling we got was it is all very cramped, too many tables squeezed in. In terms of value for money I would say its a little over priced.

The Mandarin Palace is a very busy and popular Chinese restaurant, especially at weekends. So it is better to book to secure a table. The food is delicious. There is a wide variety available, and there are special early bird menu deals that represent great value during the week. A must-visit venue for lovers of Chinese food.

Booked dinner here for my son & I. We walked the peace bridge and then made our way across the road to the restaurant. Very busy place with a mix of customers. Staff very friendly and helpful. My son was in noodle heaven - and he had them for starter & main course. He's a fussy enough eater but we... More
