When the Chinese artists spent about 3 or 4 months in Seattle with their working art and artesian exhibit at Seattle Center they chose Mandarin Gardens as their favorite restaurant in the region. We've been coming here for over 15 years. You can't go wrong with the 2-person dinner. WonTon or egg flower soup, fried cashew chicken, sweet & sour pork, shrimp or pork fried fried rice, beef broccali and chow mein vegatables. Add some delicous house wine. You are happy. We take our doogie bag home and finish it tomorrow.
