“A pleasant surprise :)”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Finally visited Mandalay and came away with a very nice experience.

Making phone reservations was awful - tried 4 times before they answered the phone and I almost went elsewhere because of this.

Staff was attentive but not bothersome and had knowledge about the menu items and drinks. Ceasar was a bit on the expensive at $8.95 but the Sangria was a great buy at $17.95 for a litre pitcher - very tasty and came in red or white wine based, loaded with fruit and oh so good!

The Mandalay appetizer sampler @ $25 was interesting and with the beet salad sarisfied 4 of us while we polished off a couple of pitchers of Sangria - best on the appy platter was the artichoke ... Yummy. You may want to go only for this!

We ordered the Lamb Chops, prime rib, salmon and more beet salad for mains. All were super flavourful and well presented (eye appeal). I would order any of them again!!!

Too full for desert we finished the evening with coffees and liquors while enjoying each others company in a very comfortable atmosphere.

Great place for a romantic evening on the patio overlooking the Fraser river and Steveston Harbour!

You don't want to miss out on Mandalay ... Give them a try - you'll no doubt be impressed!

“On the water, great outdoor seating”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Really good value in a terrific location. Outdoor seating offers lounging or table & chairs, perfect for sharing good food & drink on a nice sunny afternoon. Menu not huge, but nicely varied selections to please most palates. Wild salmon could have used a bit more aioli, but good just the same. Portion sizes a bit on the meager side, but perfect if planning the dessert sampler. Beer, wine and cocktail choices also carefully planned. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. Would definitely go again and recommend. Parking can be difficult on a nice day.

“good choice in Steveston”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

Great location. Dinner in March for my husband's birthday was good. We enjoyed surf and turf menus. Steak was done well. Seafood Tagliettele was plentiful of seafood. Server in lounge area was very friendly. Complimentary cheesecake was nice finishing touch.

“Good food, nice location.”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

The food is quite tasty here and the prices are reasonable. A bit of a fusion between east and west. Nicely done inside and a great location right on the waterfront. Lively atmosphere on weekends.

“Food disappointed”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

As a longtime Steveston resident I decided to break out of my usual "go to" dinner spots and give Mandalay a try.
It took 3 unanswered phonecalls to get a reservation.
The location on the deck was superb - the views amazing and when it got chilly the fleece blankets were much enjoyed.
The service was ok but when the table next to us had an issue the discussion and commotion was so loud and prolonged we couldn't even hear ourselves think nevermind continue talking.
The appy dip was tasty - slim on crab but plentiful on chips.
Our mains sounded amazing and looked lovely on presentation - even smelled good.
I had the chicken and mushroom pasta with goat cheese. One bite in and all was lost due to severe over-salting - it literally burned my mouth the chicken, the sauce both WAY too salty. I ate what I could of the noodles. My colleagues Thai chicken was tasty but the chicken was dried out. Each entree was $17.
We sent half our meals back, wrote on the comment card and supplied my email address not wanting to make a scene with a work colleague......but got no response.
Disappointing.
