We tried Lunch to go from Mandarin House. The prices seemed to be reaching for a lunch crowd, but the lunch crowd was at food carts or at price sensitive places. the menu was 1/2 in chines characters, so difficult for a vietnamese and english speaking and reading customers. Food was prepared to order and was delivered at the To Go counter in fairly quick service. As we only tried two entrees we will have to go back and try table service,

Ordered tea, rice, sweet and sour chicken and potstickers. The staff is lovely.. The rice was "rice", the "sweet and sour Dish" (whatever it was, not chicken) was completely overcooked... The food and the cleanliness of the establishment is less than optimal...

We hopped off a plane and headed to downtown Portland for lunch. We had picked up a relative who recommended the Mandarin and it turned out to be quite nice with easy parking nearby. Parking was $10.00 for an hour. We tried the Orange Chicken (too much breading but tasty) and the Scallops which were delicious. They brought out your choice of eqg drop soup or sweet and sour soup... we had the egg drop and it was great! The service was attentive, the food prepared and served quickly the portions were nice sized, the meals were good and the restrooms were really clean and nice. We think this is just one of many nice little restaurants in that area and would recommend that you give it a try.

Best Chinese food we've had in Portland, hands down. The food isn't "authentic" in the sense that it's good Chinese-American food (which is typically overly sweet). Rather, the food is *actually* authentic in that it's the same flavors you would get at a top-notch restaurant in China. Don't just order dishes you would get from Panda Express. Tell the staff what you like and have them give a recommendation. Delicious!

Big disappointment. Came recommended. Food was overly salty. Flavors were indistinct and muddled. Venue old and run down.

The food tasted like what I experienced last fall in China. NOT loaded with MSG or salty. The flavors were subtle but tasty. The service was good. The place had nice atmosphere and was clean. A leaf fell to the carpet and was gone in a few seconds. I would not hesitate to go back again.

We may not know how to order off the Chinese menu due to the language barrier, but we know really good Chinese food. Over the course of eight (8) months, each time we try a new Chinese food restaurant in Portland, we find ourselves more and more disappointed. The food fell flat. We ordered the Sichuan Fish in Hot Pot and were looking forward to the crying and sweating (think http://www.yelp.com/bi...), but there was no crying nor sweating. The fish was okay, but the broth was barely passable, lacking both flavor and heat. Looking forward to the handmade noodles, we ordered the Seafood Chow Mein. The mein was good, but there was as much cabbage as there were noodles in the dish. When we order seafood dishes, we usually receive a plate teeming with fresh seafood, but we sadly found only 5 un-deveined small-to-medium shrimp and a few small pieces of squid. Honestly, the noodle dish seemed like a vegetarian dish with a couple of shrimp accidentally scattered about. The Eggplant in Garlic Sauce tasted bland. There was no wok hay in any of the dishes, and it has us questioning if they are using an electric range in the kitchen. We ordered other dishes, but I'll spare you the time; seemingly exciting dishes made boring. There were two other small tables in the restaurant besides ours, but the service was more often miss than hit. After we asked for more tea, our tea pot was never returned, and we had to remind them twice to send over water. We received several dishes and waited patiently for dining utensils, but they weren't delivered until we asked for them. Every dish was served with a tiny soup spoon, with the exception of the Sichuan Fish Hot Pot. Have you tried dishing noodles with a soup spoon? The Mandarin House advertised healthy dishes on their sign. Even serving deep fried cheese curds or deep fried twinkies with a soup spoon would be considered healthy, kind of. At the end of the meal, they tried hard to redeem the evening with a complementary dessert along with the fortune cookies. The fried bao with sweetened condensed milk was appreciated, but we wished that service picked up before we were almost out the door. We're interested in pig ears and other items on their Chinese menu, but we'd like to hope our next experience is worthwhile.

The only northern style Chinese restaurant I know of in town. The food is less oily than southern Chinese and the noodles are handmade!

A very small, not so fancy, yet curious restaurant with only a few tables hangs like a potted plant with full windowed ceiling over the Saturday market. It is a wonderful place to sit quietly and absorb the intensity of the craft fair without being buried in it. The food is a little above average and the service is short and sweet.
