I can really recommend this restaurant. It's on other side street Ecoland Bus Terminal. Perfect for a lunch or dinner when you waiting for a bus. I try their spring roll platter. Very delicious and as always in mandarin garden, food was very hot. Good service. No long waiting

My companion and I wanted to deviate from the normal fast food restos in the mall so we tried this resto. The Chinese food was good and so was the quality of the rice. We tried the Sweet and Sour Shrimp and I was satisfied with the taste. The Buko Pandan Dessert was also good as it was not too... More

We took our lunch at this restaurant. The food is very good but the utensils are crooked and the waitress that attended to us does not know how to smile. We do not know if she just have a problem but the restaurant management must see to it that their staff is well equipped and well-trained so the customers do... More

If you are looking a similar chinese type of restaurant around town, definitely try this restaurant. My girlfriend brought me here and I thought it was a bit expensive to my surprise it was okay for a tight budget. We ordered a lot like sharks fin, a platter of curry fish, dumplings, buchi and two sets of durian shake. It... More

A great selection of Chinese dishes at great prices. I love the siomai selection, The pancit dish is huge, and the curry fish good. Tried the Chinese tea which seems to be a pot of hot water with a few twigs floating around, not much taste and was disappointing. Not the same as found in other branches! Service is good,... More

This wasn't a Chinese restaurant according to the waiter. And I believed him as they didn't actually have fried rice on the menu. Well they said they did but it really wasn't fried rice. It was more like clumped sticky rice. And it certainly wasn't freshly fried as he arrived Warm along with the rest of the food on the... More
