We've been going to Wans for quite some time now and it never disappoints. The executive lunch menu has some of the tastiest food I've ever eaten and the value for money is off the scale. If you find yourself in Blackpool and you dont visit this place, you're off your rocker.

A group of 10 of us visited on a busy Saturday early evening. We all opted for the early bird menu and were not disappointed. The mixed sharing platter for starter was huge and delicious, plenty for everyone. The main meals were equally delicious no complaints at all. Staff very pleasant & good service. Definately worth a visit

I organized an event on a quiet Wednesday night for 23. We had the upstairs to ourselves. The food was quite the best Cantonese food I had ever had. The quality and service were superb. Pauline the owner was a great host and we will be definitely back.

We had a fantastic meal here last night. Hubby and myself had the vegetarian banquet which is perfect and our friends had ribs,salt and chilli tofu and nasi goreng. Everything was delicious. Thank you to Pauline for sorting out a table for us and everyone at the Mandarin for a really lovely evening. See you again soon.
