I've eaten at this restaurant a total of three times on my traditional Summer visits to Macon and for the LIFE of me I can't fathom why this establishment isn't always JAMED packed with patrons. It is both opulently decorated AND opulence for the discerning foodie alike. The menu is generously complete with an appetizer section, soup selection, chicken dishes,... More

While visiting our daughter, we went to the Mandarin for dinner. A lot of attention has been paid to the interior decor, including painted glass panels and an appearance that might make you think of a typical Chinatown. The portions were very large. I had the chicken with mixed vegetables, and really enjoyed it. My wife had the sesame chicken.... More

Okay friends- I do not have a place like this at home, so finding Chinese food along highway that is decent is difficult. This place is great for just that- a nice Chinese meal that is reasonably priced with good service. My only complaint is that the floors were sticky and that made me feel like it wasn't that clean,... More

We sometimes dine in but often take out. The cashew chicken, sweet and sour pork, and beef with peppers are pretty good. The staff are friendly and attentive and the kitchen is reasonably fast. The sauces are acceptable with no special character.

Many people love Mandarin. I've eaten at a lot of restaurants and consider myself a foodie. I'll eat/try almost any food. I love Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean foods. I did not find this food authentic. It was super Americanized and super SALTY. I will not be going back.

When thinking of "the" place to get real Chinese food, the Mandarin is the place to go. Great service and great food make the right combination for an enjoyable evening out. My wife has gone vegetarian, and has no problems here. I am very pleased with the menu, especially the sweet and sour chicken.

Thank Dave G
