“Birthday tea- great all round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

The exterior location isn't wonderful but the interior is adequate. However any quibbles about these matters fade in comparison to the excellence if the food - hot, prompt, delicious and in decent quantities. We enjoyed the prawn toast, duck with ginger, chicken and mushroom soup. Spare ribs a bit light on meat though..

“Food to make you drool yum yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

My wife and I just popped in on spec for a late tea after a shopping trip and have to say we were very impressed with what we saw. The décor of the restaurant was very pleasing on the eye, and the staff were very well dressed and exceptionally polite and very welcoming to us.
Menu choices were plentiful, and even when food was brought to the table its presentation on the plates was outstanding right down to fine details like carrots and radishes being carved into lovely flowers and unusual shapes purely for presentation on the plates.
great value for money and listening to other diners it was obvious they are regular customers and I can see why.
I look forward to another trip in the near future with any luck, keep up the good work.

“Fantastic meal, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We visited this lovely restaurant on our 2 day break to York. We found Mulan on trip adviser and decided to give it a go, we were happy we did as it was one of the nicest Chinese's we have had.
We were greeted and seated straight away by a very friendly man who couldn't do enough for us. We chose the deluxe banquet which was great value for money, the presentation of all the food was great but the taste was amazing.
Inside the restaurant was lovely and chilled, there was only a few other diners but it was mid week and we didn't mind as our food was served as soon as we wanted it.
The waiter made conversation with us which was nice and was interested in where we were from etc.
We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others and would return if we came back to York..The only negative we would have is that it does not deliver to Manchester ha ha...
Thank you for a lovely meal and great service

“Exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We went here to give it a try and what a gem. The welcome was friendly and we were taken to our table straight away.
We ordered the set menu which did not disappoint, however we missed out on the complimentary prawn crackers.
The food was excellent best prawn toast I have ever had, fresh and cooked just right.
We left here very stuffed after a very enjoyable evening. The service was not rushed either they gave us time to rest between courses.
We will be going back again very soon.

“Delightful !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Went for Lunch with friends. To be truthful we had intended to go a different restaurant but they were closed for a private function - so we found Mulan quite by accident - and what a happy accident ! The setting is charming, the staff are friendly, the menu is interesting, and the food is superb. They do a lunchtime special menu which is excellent value. Two of us opted for Spare Ribs as a starter and two had soup. Then we all had Sweet and Sour Chicken, which was really succulent, and the best egg fried rice ever. . We are planning to go back again for a night out very soon.
