“Great food - best dim sum in Saskatoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2011

There is a reason that dim sum at the Mandarin is always so busy on the weekend and that is the quality of the food. The portions are large and the prices are very cheap. There is a large selection of dim sum items and I highly recommend the sticky rice - always have to have some when I visit...

Ordering off the menu is also very good. The ginger beef is quite good as is the cherry chicken. The lettuce wrap is definitely a great family favorite especially with plenty of hoisin sauce.

The restaurant is a bit run down on the outside but is clean if somewhat outdated on the inside.

Highly recommend.

“Delish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2009

We have been going to the Mandarin for the past few years for Dim Sum on Saturday mornings after the farmers market. The food is outstanding, we try new things every time we go and so far have not been disappointed. My two favorites are the deep friend shrimp dumplings and the steamed pork dumplings, but the last few times I have tried something that was shrimp on top of a square of fried tofu and it is amazing! Seeing as we had only been to dim sum there, we were a bit unsure of how ordering off the menu would be when we went for supper. The food for supper was very very good, if you are unsure of what to order ask, if you are unsure of how much to order ask, the staff that work there are very helpful! The price is the other part of the Mandarin that you can't beat, for eight of us to have a stuffing and delicious meal for supper it came to under $80 with enough food left over for lunch the next day! I love the Mandarin and always recommend it to people.

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2009

I'm from Regina and when we went to Saskatoon, we asked work associates where a good place is for dim sum. They weren't wrong. There is no comparison in Regina for taste, quantity and price. My next visit to toon town will be a stop at Mandarin.
