Got there at 5pm on a Tuesday and there were several diners already there. The food was really good as was the service. The place is really well decorated ( a refurbishment following a serious fire). Easy parking just outside. I couldn't fault the place except that maybe the food was a bit expensive (£50 for 2 courses a la... More

Popped in here on a spur of the moment night out! We hadn't booked but were greeted with a smile and taken to the bar/waiting area! We were immediately offered a drink. All the staff were really friendly and the service was so prompt! Food was amazing- good sized portions and the quality was top notch ! Really enjoyed it...... More

Called ahead with my order for collection. End of a very long month so was really looking forward to a nice treat for my wife and I. I was bitterly disappointed that after asking for chicken curry without onions when I opened the order at home the curry consisted of mostly onions and very little chicken. The chips appeared to...

All our food came quickly and was well presented. Great Thai green curry. Rest of the dishes were well received too. Nice Chinese interior. Spacious and fresh. Service friendly but could be better. Table not cleared after dinner so looked scruffy. Overall, it was very nice.

A group of ten had dinner in the mandarin last night. Place was very busy, my food was ok, I had special fried rice. Overall, the food was of a good standard and everyone had a good night. Was a bit pricey though as we ordered off the main menu as the portions on the express are a bit small..

I'd been to mandarin years ago and remembered it being delicious. Returned with high expectations. We hadn't booked so waited for a table in a lovely waiting area. Got a table and placed order - sweet and sour chicken for me, beef and black bean for husband. Unfortunately food wasn't as good as I had remembered. Average chinese takeaway food.... More

After a few hours shopping in thec sales in Derry my wife and I decided to eat here as it had been recommended by both a brother and a sister of hers (it also had good reviews on Tripadvisor). We went in shortly after it opened and it was very busy. They gave us a table in the 'waiting area'... More

We have liked this restaurant for some time. It burnt down a couple of years ago and we're glad that standards hadn't slipped when it reopened. Had a lovely meal, quick, efficient and friendly service, good food and to top it all we got a Christmas gift when we left - 4 wine glasses, a box of after eight and... More
