“Best General Tso's Chicken on the Kitsap Peninsula”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

I've been a regular for about 10-12 years now. The wait staff knows my family, and they always know what I'm going to order. I had tried other Chinese restaurants, but was horribly dissatisfied with the others. This little restaurant is not fancy, but they score well with the quality of the food vs the costs. I prefer to go for dinner, because the food seems fresher than lunch. A buffet is offered at lunch, and I've never been pleased with it. Overall, what this resturant lacks in ambiance, it makes up for in what really matters....the food!

“Best Chinese Food - in Silverdale; Be ready to wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

My family has been a customer of Mandarin Chinese for years - and while it's not the best Chinese food we've ever had, it's the best in Kitsap County. Portion sizes are good and prices are reasonable. The restaurant size is a bit small, but we usually order delivery or take-out, so that doesn't effect us much.

The worse thing about Mandarin Chinese is the delivery times! It is common to call, place an order, be put on hold by the owner, and then rushed to complete your order. Ensure you order at least an hour before you want to eat! In the years that we have been ordering from them, it routinely takes well over an hour for your food to be delivered. That said, it's never been cold when it got to us.

“unhappy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

It took 2 hours to deliver my meal. After an hour I called and they just said they will be there in an hour. Very disappointing.

I like it so much because the food is yami and also have buffet at lunch time. This is good deal and fatalistic service.

“Surprising good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Just happened to see this restaurant. Packed at noon and hardly could get a seat. Food was very fresh and tasty. Enjoyed the vegetables the most.
