We sat on an overcrowded table and waited forever for a drink. However when the food came out I couldn't fault it. They seem to do a roaring trade of take out! Bit of confusion over what I ordered and initially the member of staff seemed quite cross, but after that a nice meal. Floor is quite slippery.

We had a takeaway from the Mandarin this evening. We’ve used the restaurant often however after this evenings visit I can’t see us using going there again too soon. We bought the set meal for three and the content was poor. The ribs were three tiny morsels, noodles were small as was the portions in the main courses.

We visited Helensburgh and tried Mandarin for a takeaway which was delicious, lots of chicken, bamboo shoots and water chestnuts in our Chicken and Cashew Nut - and not loaded with onions as many restaurants do to disguise the lack of chicken etc. It looked very busy which is always a good sign!

The Mandarin is my local sit in/takeaway restaurant therefore I have been here a number of times. The food is generally OK however the prices I personally feel are high. It normally costs £20 (or there abouts) for two main meals, no sides or drinks. And that is a takeaway. The food is OK as Chinese food goes, nothing special.... More

Tasty, good quality food. Great portion sizes. We had the chicken satay which came out on a hot plate and the batter chicken sweet and sour. Both delicious! Attentive and friendly staff. A wee gem!

Duck and prawn toast for starters was lovely (although pancakes a little dry). Mains were perfect... King prawn was amazing, chunky and meaty. Would certainly come back.

Very pleasant staff and welcome. They appear to do a lot of carry out food. I sat in and enjoyed an excellent meal. I always like my food on a HOT plate and had to ask for this.

We always get a warm welcome here and a party of 8 is never a problem. The wine is good although we were disappointed that they only had one bottle of their fabulous Chablis. The food is very tasty and good size portions.
