We ordered a Chao Mein, vegetable and tofu clay pot and chengdu fried rice. The Chao mein's noodles were warm and the chicken was cold. The vegetable and tofu clay pot contained more tofu than vegetables and the fried rice was okay. There is nothing...special about this place and we were extremely disappointed. The waitress "Abby" had an attitude and was trying to rush us out before we even placed our orders.More

Many people have told me how good this food was suppose to be so we ordered take out and the whole family was disappointed. I ordered a variety of dishes and there wasn’t one that I could say I loved. Two dishes I ordered just...about went straight to the trash. Maybe I got them on a bad night but I’m not sure I want to bother giving them another chance regardless. My order wasn’t cheap and took over an hour to prepare, which didn’t add to the experience.More

Sept 2022, from the looks of the outside of the place which is in a strip mall it doesn’t look like the a fancy place. However, when you step I inside decor is very nice with plenty of tables, booths and private rooms. Our server...Jennifer was lovely. Here are the PROS and CONS about the place. PROS - Plenty of parking, nice interior, extensive menu, nice wine list, food was good, and the wait time was not long for them to bring out our meals. CONS - Dinner prices are high, Noise level was loud, and the help was constantly coming over to our table looking to pick up our finished plates. Not that it is a bad thing, but we were in the middle of a conversation and you had this guys arm reaching over to grab the empty plate. This to us was very annoying. Now for the review of the food. From the Dim Sum selection we ordered the Soup Dumplings that were steamed with Soy Sauce on the side. These Dumplings were flavorful and a nice size portion of 6. Then we shared the Sweet Pea Prawns that was delicious. The Shrimp was a nice size and plenty of them, plus the sweet peas and Asparagus were fresh. Honestly, this meal was healthy and not salty. Note, for a Friday - Sat Night, you should make reservations since the place was crowded. For the two of us our bill came out to around $50 and with tip $60 with one Beer. All and all, we probably will not come back here because we felt rushed and really couldn’t relax and enjoy our friends.More

Arrived on Thursday at 6:30 pm with reservations for five people. Place was fairly busy but we were seated right away. Order was taken for family style meal, including Egg Drop and Hot & Sour soups, cucumber salad, sechuan pickled cabbage, Beef Short Ribs, Tea...Smoked Duck, Toothpick Lamb, Chao Mein, Rice Cake Stir Fry and Fried Rice. All dishes were delivered in a timely manner except for the lamb dish, which never came out. Our server finally chased it down and it made it to our table when we were almost finished eating. The food was good and the service was okay, but our server was hard to find when we needed her. Finally, the prices have gone up radically, which will probably keep us away in the future.More

Still by far the best and most authentic Chinese food (I lived 5 years in China, and have also visited frequently) we’ve tasted in 35 years of living in Westchester, and better than the overwhelming majority in NYC.

My husband and I ate here for dinner this past week. All I can say is how absolutely amazing the whole experience was! The food is authentic Chinese cuisine. We had two appetizers, which consisted of the dumplings and dry rub ribs, duck fried rice...and I had the orange peel chicken, my husband had a spicy shrimp dish. The food was outstanding as was the service and the inside decor. We had tried them once before with take out. Inside dining is a much better experience for sure. They did an amazing job on the inside and outside. We have been waiting to try them since we first saw them constructing the restaurant. We wish them future success, and look forward to our next dining experience with them. Definitely give them a try!More

This is probably one of the nicest Chinese restaurants in the area. Grabbed dinner here with friends and family a few times. Always busy, so I do find the service here a little slow. Overall, I do like most of the food here and usually...order3 the braised beef brisket or short ribs and crispy fish. The braised beef is usually very tender, but found it a little tough the last time. Was also told that crispy fish had to be ordered a day in advance and was given a whitefish as an alternative. If you are salt sensitive, you might find the dishes here a little too salty. Still one of my favorite Chinese places in Westchester, which is why I still gave it four stars and will go back here again.More

First time there. Everything we ordered was excellent. Their Peking Duck was supurb. Wait staff very friendly. BUT... I checked their website before making reservations and their covid protocol was posted so we were happy. It appears they forgot to remove it!! When we got...there the place was jammed with tables and people. Most of the staff did not wear masks at all or had then over their chins. There was no mask mandate for customers while waiting, no checking of temperatures adn certainly not "limited tables" as stated on their website. I spoke to the hostess and she said she would notify the manager and was sorry, we waited a few extra minutes(outside) and they gave us a booth in the back where it was a bit less crowded.More

On our first visit back to O Mandarin since the pandemic, our party of five had dinner on Saturday night. When we arrived at 5:30 the restaurant was already busy, but we had reservations and were seated immediately. Since we love to taste as many...dishes as possible we ordered family style. For starters we had Hot and Sour soup (the best anywhere) and egg drop soup. We then shared Vegetable Dumplings, Glazed Spare Ribs (absolutely delicious), Sichuan Pickled Cabbage and Bubble Pancakes. For the main course we shared Tea Smoked Duck, Sweet Pea Shrimp, Lotus Root Stir Fry, Orange Peel Shrimp (messy but so good), Veggie and Egg Fried Rice and Shrimp Chao Mein (the real stuff with soft noodles). As usual, service was spot on. Other than the prices being a little too high, the whole dining experience was great. Definitely my first choice for upscale Chinese food.More

This is our favorite restaurant for Chinese food. The food is always fresh and hot and prepared to our liking. We generally go there for lunch where the menu is unlimited. A lunch special prices are very reasonable and you can get just about anything....The staff is friendly and very competent. The service as well. I really can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. We will continue to go as much as we can perhaps at least once a month to enjoy the lunch and the atmosphere. We have Chinese friends who tell us that this is their favorite Chinese restaurant as well. Sam MarcusMore

O Mandarin catered my sons backyard wedding last weekend. We chose them because it is the couples favorite Westchester Chinese restaurant. The food was delicious, the staff was professional. Peter managed the venue professionally and with ease. If you need a catered event, O Mandarin...does a great job. There is a reason the Michelin Guide has given the restaurant a plate. The food is good Chinese food - hard to find in Westchester!More

We ordered online three hours in advance. Our food was not ready for pickup, and we had to wait over thirty minutes for it. We asked for the price to be adjusted, and the restaurant did not agree. We will not go back again.

Our party of five went here for dinner last Friday night. The food was very good, but the service was inexplicably slow (our waiter disappeared several times for up to 10 minutes at a time). What surprised me most was how crowded it was and...the lack of social distancing. There was NO social distancing. The bar area was closed, but other than that, all the tables were arranged like normal and were full. People in the booths were sitting back to back. Only one table had been removed from the center of the restaurant. If anyone has COVID in this place, everyone will get it.More
