Typical Chinese tea house with affordable meal sets. Was here for breakfast, unfortunately, most of the meals were unavailable. Food is average, nothing special really. But tThey did have a lot suki (regular customers) so I guess they have good customer relationships.

Basic, clean, reasonable attentive service, and tasty food (and a good selection) at reasonable prices. What's not to like?

Another tasty Chinese “fast food”, restaurant, located only in Mindanao, which serves very affordable Chinese meal. Try their rice toppings, noodle soups (which was a bit salty), and dimsum which is really tasty. Go to this place if you want a good mid range price Chinese food treat I ate in their Abreeza branch, and a long time ago in... More

Mandarin Tea GARDEN in the vicinity of Redemptorist Church. Next to Ahfat Seafood Restaurant, MANDARIN TEA GARDEN has been our choice for dimsum meals. With friends, we usually take our lunch there especially on Wednesdays , after attending the novena mass to Our MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP at nearby Redemptorist Church. Our favorite is the steamed rice topped with steamed... More

My wife and her friend accompanied me to this restaurant. This restaurant is located inside the Victoria Plaza mall. First, don't eat anything in that mall. It's old and dirty and the eateries are even worse. I ordered a chicken noodle soup. After I ate all the noodles, I began looking for some pieces of chicken in the bowl and... More

We visited the MTG in the NCCC Mall. Firstly the C.R was not clean, secondly the "Show Kitchen" revealed piles of dirty dishes and food splashes on walls and cooking equipment. There were plenty of staff in the kitchen but no cleaning was being carried out. The service at table and the food were indifferent.

It had the ambience of a fast food joint, but the service was really fast and efficient and the food really good.

Tried this newly opened Mandarin tea garden resto at the Abreeza Mall located on this row of restaurants at the 2rd floor. We ordered a bowl each of their noodle soups and then an order of humba with cuapao. Wow that humba was soo good; succulent soft pork slices cooked in vinegar, sugar and soysauce, and I'm sure some other... More

It was lunch with my mom at their NCCC Branch so after we ordered our food the waiter brought plates, utensils and glass of water which we were both stunned to see theirs still lipstick printed at the rim of the glass. I don't think anyone would be happy to see this? The food is ok including the dessert plus... More

I liked the steamed fish with oyster sauce, the lechon and the broccoli with scallops. Just don't order the smoothly blends if you want a natural drink as these blends are just powder imitations. Not quite good.
