RUDE AND UNSANITARY. NEVER AGAIN. THEY WILL CALL THE COPS ON YOU IF YOU QUESTION THEIR SERVICE. I went to Ivory Mandarin, as it was called, for years. Our company has referred at least 20 clients to the restaurant over the years. Management changed a few months ago, so disregard all prior reviews (let me save you some time, you'll... More

The new owners, formerly with "The Yummy House" have combined traditional Chinese favorites with the "Hong Kong Style> Their Honey walnut shrimp you could die for as well as their Salt & Pepper Tofu and top off with the Honk Kong Wanton Soup. They have only been re-opened for a short while, we have been back with different friends six... More

Treated out neighbor friends to a dinner night out, and they selected Ivory Bistro. We had been here one before the ownership changed. My opinion, the food is good and the portions are very large. The service was good and our order was received as placed and our drinks were never empty. Left feeling very full.

This restaurant is under new ownership and is now called Ivory Chinese Bistro. I have been to this place with Lynn twice recently. Both experiences have been good, just not outstanding. The restaurant is clean. Service is friendly. I had the Almond Chicken. Lynn had her favorite Moo Goo Gai Pan. Both entrees came with egg rolls and fried rice.... More

It is now called Ivory Bistro (not Manadarin). New owners have updated menu and decor. Most lunch items are about $7 which includes entree, choice of rice; choice of either egg roll OR soup. Dinner menu ranges from about $8-$14. My General Tso's chicken was the best I ever ate, albeit a little too spicy hot for me. The jasmine... More

The new owners redecorated, the menu and improved the quality of the food. We have been there two weeks in a row and as I left, said to them, " I'll see... More

We ordered takeout twice and sorry didn't care for it. We had 4 different items total and frankly it all tasted the same. It had this weird taste to it. Might be the oil they are cooking the food in. The egg rolls were these tiny skinny things like the size of your finger. Never seen egg rolls like that.... More

Ivory is under new ownership and the cooking shows it. The new menu and food preparation are very good. Refreshing to find a better Chinese restaurant in Pinellas County.

This restaurant has changed hands a few times since it was considered one of the best Chinese restaurants in the area in 2006. After a long absence, I decided to try it again this week and was quite pleased with the food I ordered to take out. I will be returning very soon and would recommend people try the food... More
