“Excellent food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

What a find! We had a superb meal with excellent service. Very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We had the pre theatre menu which was reasonable and of a very high standard. Will definitely be returning and would recommend to anyone looking for an excellent Chinese meal.

“Mandarin Magic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Booked on our behalf by friends, me and my wife visited Mandarin with 2 other couples for Our Anniversary.
Not a fussy eater but not a lover of Chinese (do prefer buffet style), a little apprehensive at 1st but not one to complain, this place is 'a little gem' and can now see why is rated so highly. Stuck to the simple things that we know we love and it was fantastic.
Everything was perfect for a celebration, the place, the atmosphere and the food. Mandarin is managed very well, efficiently and the staff were fantastic.
All 6 of us had a great time and would definately call again.

“Not as good as expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

We went here after reading the reviews on trip advisor, so was expecting a lot as it is rated number 3 in Blackpool. But unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations. On arrival we were greeted by a waiter who seated us quickly and put the menus down on the table, he looked like he didn't want to be there to be honest. We were then waiting about 5 minutes and then was asked about prawn crackers and drinks, we got the crackers really quickly but not as fast for the drinks. When looking at the menu there wasn't an option for chicken fried rice, but when we asked if they do it she said yes, only problem was when it came it looked more like egg fried rice with pieces of chicken added to it, we've had a lot of Chinese but unfortunately this was the worst for chicken fried rice. But I would like to praise the girl who works there as she was very polite and made us feel welcome.
Was just disappointed as trip advisor set high expectations.
