The Mandarin is a local staple and should be on your list of go-to-spots while you are visiting the area or if you live in the area. Get there early or make sure you call ahead to make reservations in advance. Their food is awesome...More

This restaurant is really really good. I have never had a dish that I haven’t liked. Orange peel chicken and honey walnut shrimp are the two favorites.

I am not much into Chinese food, but this restaurant was better than I have experienced. The food was tasty. Everyone enjoyed it. The portions were huge. The service was good, even with place packed. I will come back to try the Peking duck.

I had the Coconut Thai Vegetables with brown rice. This dish is spicy but absolutely excellent. My love had General Tsao’s Chicken with ham fried rice which was excellent, too. We tried the lemon tart for dessert which was quite good. Great service and great...More

My group of three went on a Wednesday night around 7:00 and didn't have reservations. We had to wait 15 minutes. They asked if we had reservations. I would reccomend that you call ahead and make them with a large party.
