I have picked up take out from Mandarin on a couple business visits to Needham. It's a quick walk from the Homewood Suites and the service and food are very good.

Christmas means Chinese food, and Chinese food means Manadarin Cuisine. 5:45 the place is nearly empty 6:05 the place is PACKED. Orders get taken food gets delivered, water glasses get refilled. Food is good, not great. Prices are reasonable, considering the suburbs. Service is acceptable.

This restaurant has been decorated by the owner and there is not one place that is not painted with some design. The people who work there are very friendly and very nice. The Chinese food is not outstanding but it is good. The service is...fast and It is not very expensive. I recommend this restaurant.More

Some of the worst Chinese takeout we’ve ever had. Sweet and sour pork was breaded and deep fried balls. Chicken with orange flavored sauce was breaded and fried with no veggies or anything else. Will not return.

I was very surprised when ordering noodles how tasty and well prepared and tasty they were. The restaurant were also relatively quick to serve food. The waitress knew english so that was easy. Beer choice was bottled only, with domestic and imports like heineken and...corona, with Sapporo and Tsingtao as asian beers. Good choices. The noodles were an absolute treat! Will definately come here again.More

I had to pass on a chain soup and sandwich place nearby because I just could not eat another 1/2 sandwich and 1/2 soup anymore. Just a minute from the chain sandwich shop, I found this nice restaurant. First, there were cars in the parking...lot on a monday night, so you know this is promising. Second, you can tell that it is different because there is a lot of unique decoration of the place. Whether you like it or not, you can tell that the owner takes pride in this restaurant. The place is clean and inviting. But of course, what's most important is the food. I was not disappointed. It was American Chinese but it was still very delicious. The portion was large and we were very full after. I was so glad that I came. I highly recommend it.More

Staying in Needham for work and needed a Chinese! Could only find one within walking distance of my hotel. At first it looked a little dated but when greeted, was great from there. Service was lovely and quick. Very pleasant. The food was pretty amazing....Big portions and very tasty. I had the calamari which had whole octopus pieces as well as vegetarian spring rolls and sweet and sour chicken. Will visit again.More
