The menu was good but not that exciting, and one came away with the feeling that one had paid top dollar but not got top food.

Small but intimate and excellent service. Extensive menu, beautifully cooked and well presented food with very large portions and good prices. We eat here regularly and always get a great welcome from Kenny and Amy.

We have lunch most Saturdays at the Mandarin and it is by far the best Chinese
Restaurant in the area. The food is top quality and nothing is too much bother for Amy and Kenny. Well worth a visit for anyone visiting the town, and it certainly won't break the bank.

First visit and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quiet and unpretentious, prices absolutely fine and, most importantly, the food was excellent (never tried seaweed before!).

Service was exactly as it should be; welcoming and attentive but not overly so.

Small, but not quite intimate.

Thoroughly enjoyed it and I would definitely go back.
