I'm writing this review to share the appalling story that happened to my family and I tonight at Mandarin Garden. To keep it (somewhat) brief, upon returning home after picking up our $50 order, I found it to be wrong. Mistakes happen, to error is human, it is the events and actions that followed which leave me practically speechless. I... More

General Tso's Chicken, did not have one single piece of meat in it. It was all little fried pieces of chicken bits. The shrimp/vegetable dish was under cooked -- near-raw shrimp. GROSS! Politely pointed this out to the waitress. She said that is how G'Tso chicken is done. Asked if we wanted a replacement dish for the shrimp/vegetable dish...but, we... More

As stated in the title, average Chinese food. I have stopped here a couple of times in my way through Flagstaff. It is close to fuel and I 40 exit. I always look at the buffet - $6.45. But I always order from the lunch menu, $6.50ish. It is cooked to order, and you get entree, soup, rice and a... More

Visiting Flagstaff and got take out from this restaurant. I am not sure what has happened to good Chinese food in e USA see days, but it appears that all of them are more interested in economics than good food. I would not recommend this place. The food was bland, no flavor, rice was overcooked and tasted bland.

It was close to the repair shop and we were hungry all you can eat for $7.99! This was the cheapest meal on our vacation and that includes McDs. The food was good, hot and with lots of choices. The hot tea was really good and the service was exceptional. We left the waiter a double tip because he was... More

Visited the restaurant after reading the reviews as it was close to our hotel and we didn't want to have to gear up to ride out to eat. Staff was very friendly but food very disappointing, greasy and little flavor. Wouldn't recommend this for dinner.

Food was horrible. Not hot. Suggest you do not go here. Very dirty. Anywhere would be better than this place.

On our last day in our vacation to see the Grand Canyon and Flagstaff, we craved for Chinese food. There's not a lot in Flagstaff so I just searched tripadvisor and this restaurant was on the list. It's a bit far from our hotel but it was worth the drive. We came at the right time for lunch buffet on... More

This was my second time to this restaurant. The last time was over a month ago. Once again the staff was inviting and the food was awesome! And they had lots of food choices. Our drinks were never empty, they came around quite frequently to clear plates and fill our drinks. In other words, the same as it was last... More

Been there a few times in the last few months. Even sent clients there (that have now made it a regular stop when in town.) Variety of Americanized-Chinese food is very good. They will accomodate whatever requests you make happily. Overall food quality is very good for what it is... Pricing is reasonable.
