If your not familiar with the area, the restaurant is hard to find. We went on a Wednesday for the dinner buffet. The staff was friendly and attentive. The buffet was okay, not great but okay for Kinshasa. There's were various hot/cold dishes to chose from. The standard rice, noodles, chicken wings, sweet & sour I think chicken, frogs legs,...

Been there on 28th of January 2017. Nice restaurant at the middle of the city. I have ordered Lebanese Kus Kus and Chicken Gravy. They were good to eat. Waitresses are cordial and prompt. There is an open space for the smokers as well. But there were few children at that smoky environment. The bakery is rich with hundreds of... More

I have been to so many Chinese restaurants all around the world, but nothing beats Mandarin. It's truly the best Chinese restaurant. They have soooo many choices I've been going to this restaurant for 9 years now. It's actually my favourite restaurant in the world and I don't know if anything is ever gonna beat it.

The Le Mandarin is the best chinese restaurant in town. They serve many chinese traditional dishes that you cant find in other place. The food is always prepared with passion and served with skilled team.

I have been going to this place for almost like 19 years now. This place place portrays the classic essence of Chinese culture. The food over here is simply magnificent. However, sometimes the service over here can be a bit slow on some busy weekends. The chilli beef with rice is a must try over here. The view from the... More

My choice was based on the reviews here which were mostly very good to excellent.. After having dinner there I can only say that the place is well done up with Chinese lanterns and red carpets...the waiters are very good. And that's about it. Portions were strangely small. Shrimp Fried noodles came in a tiny plate with plenty of oil,... More

It has never changed. It is a legend. You eat well! Good value for your money, and I know the waiters for years! Only enoying fact is the police at the entrance of the lift...
