“Tiniest portion sizes I've seen in Argentina!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Mandarinais a fun little restaurant right on the pedestrian zone in downtown cordoba. We stopped in and each had the lunch special salad, which we were excited about because we needed something fresh, healthy, and cool (it was a very hot day). The salad had julienned carrots and zucchini, cold lentil and kidney beans, some lettuce, corn, and a little garnish of fried tortilla for texture. It was really tasty and such a welcome change from pizza, pasta, and steak, but it was tiny! More of a side salad or starter than a full lunch salad. Needless to say, we hoovered the bread basket and needed a snack a few hours later. I looked around and saw other dishes of a similar size, so I think it was standard. Go here if you have just a little bit of an appetite!

“Great for people watching”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

In the center of Cordoba Capital, great sights to see and people watch. Wait staff is friendly, coffee and media lunas are good.

“Good food but slow...”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

They offer a decent variety of vegetarian dishes, but service was so, so slow I had to swallow my food in 7min in order not to be late for the meeting I had later on.

“nice food of great variety”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

A place for the poor vegetarians visiting Argentina (also try Rest. Alfonsina not far from there). Didn't like much the chinese foods but most of food were ok to good. Good location with tables on the pedestrian street.
