best chinese food around

Good food, service and prices. Kid that runs place is very personable and attentive as is the rest of staff. Almond chicken is white meat only, a plus.

When in Lewiston one of my favorite places to dine is the Mandarin Pine Restaurant. In the past the food was excellent and plentiful but this time I was taken back. When my first red flag alerted me that something might be wrong was seeing a note taped to the door saying that they needed a cook. In my book... More

Chow main is not good, dishes tend to be too sweet for me. Lewiston doesn't have many options for Chinese food, but this is my least favorite.

The food was over and under cooked. Nothing tasted fresh and the food served did not match the description on the menu. There was no flavor.

It is a very healthy menu. You have a lot of variety. If you can't find it on the menu, ask them. Excellent seafood noodle soup. Ask for the sweet Filipino waitress. She is so accommodating. The cook is authentic Chinese. They serve whole fish when in season.

Every time we have gone there we get a great meal and too much to eat. The wait staff is always friendly and very attentive. I would tell people to go there and try it and then they will be hooked!!

I love this restaurant! I have a craving for Chinese food often and every time I make a trip to Lewiston it's hard for me to pass up an opportunity to eat here. The dishes are large and I always have enough leftovers for lunch the next day. One of the most important things that I look for in a... More

Some items on the menu are OK. Stay very basic. Try the sweet and sour dishes. Some of the more exotic things with multiple ingredients or more complicated composition aren't well interpreted and become a mishmash of flavors and lots of salt or MSG. Wait staff are generally young people from the local college who are more interested in what's... More

Stayed at the Comfort Inn and wanted a restaurant we could walk to. We're we pleased with Mandarin Pine. Shrimp asparagus stir fry and vegetable fried rice. We ate every bite. Reasonable prices with great service.

Thank Genelle H
