We were there with 4 other non-Asian friends, and it was their first time at Mandarin Bistro. Service was excellent, food was very good bordering on excellent. The ordering of the various dishes were... More

Restaurant is as good as some in Monterey Park & Chinatown, but right here in our back yard. Save the drive. Tofu with pork is great! Green beans awesome! Standard choices also good.
