Typical Chinese food which is quite good not nothing out of the ordinary. Service is a bit too business like and not too willing to satisfy the requests of customers,

Don't be fooled by the simple sign on the outside, step inside and you will be pleasantly surprised to find a beautifully decorated restaurant wIth very high ceilings, white table cloths and servers dressed as you would expect from any fine dining restaurant. This place is nice enough to take VIP clients who enjoy Chinese food as well as meeting with co-workers for your Dim Sum cravings!!! That is what we did today. It was Friday and after a long treacherous work week, we wanted to relax and have some yummy dim sum. Pork Hash, Shrimp Dumplings, Nori wrapped seafood . . . we had so much more, just know that everything was very tasty, not greasy and the atmosphere is relaxing and pleasant. This place not your neighborhood Chinese restaurant, it's beautiful, clean and are treated like guests by your servers.

Wilbert, our server, was very helpful. We ordered the peppery salt pork chops, seafood cake noodles, and a few other things. All the dishes were very delicious and we will definitely go back again and again. Thank you!!

We go to Mandalay with visitors for dim sum because the restaurant actually looks pretty decent with cloth tablecloths/napkins and a "to-order" dim sum menu. There is a picture menu (good for non-locals and little children) which is helpful for non-Chinese folks. We ordered 8 or 9 dishes to get a variety of plates and ended up with a $105 bill for 6 adults, 2 children and one baby in stroller. The variety of dim sum managed to satisfy all. They even had coconut gin dui---yea! And all the dishes came out hot since they were made to order. Yum..... I called to reserve a table for 10 explaining that there would only be 9 but one would be in a stroller and asked for an out-of-the-way table. Not a problem here since you are not seated back to back with other diners (as in many other restaurants). Noise level was actually quite subdued (for a Chinese restaurant) and we were able to have adult conversations :)

We went to the iolani palace today. This gem is just 5 minutes (walk) away! We had the shrimp dim sums, baked pork buns, seafood rolls and roast duck. Each one - exceptional!!!
