The food was dry, overcooked, and pricey. The alcoholic beverages were priced higher than in a large metropolitan upscale hotel!

Perhaps the reviews saying Mandarin Touch is the "best in town" are because it's the only Chinese restaurant in town? It had been a long day, and I was too tired to walk down to the Italian restaurant my hotel had recommended. Wait staff were attentive, seating indoor and outside was comfortable. I had originally wanted tofu with black mushrooms,... More

I love that this is probably 1 of 2 restaurants that stay open after 9pm on weekends. We arrived at around 11pm and were treated like we were there for dinner at 5pm. We were with a group of friends and ordered a lot of food and everything came out very quickly. Phil, the owner was so charming and friendly!... More

Good Food and Great service, in the middle of Solvang Ca. After a hard day traveling you might want to stop in.

We have had Chinese food at many different restaurants in many different cities,but none compare to the Mandarin Touch. Right in the middle of Solvang, the restaurant is always busy. How do I know? Because we have lived here in Solvang for 25 years. Make no mistake about it. You will not get better Chinese food anywhere else.

I swear I only go here because my son loves Chinese food. If it were me... I'd wait till I was in Santa Barbara to get good Chinese. The service, not matter how empty it is, is terrible. There's area always a lot of staff around. The food does come pretty quick, but if you're waiting to order, missing something... More

We went here on a Thursday evening. Not wanting to drive to Buellton, we walked to this restaurant. There were several customers waiting for a table, but the owner did an excellent job of finding us all tables in a reasonable period of time. When he seated us he made sure a waiter was right there to take our order.... More

Atmosphere and food was excellent. We had so much food left over that we ate it for lunch the next day. Would definitely go back.

Looked nice but was empty on a Tuesday night...we were seated in a basically empty restaurant and no one came to greet us, take and order....nothing....after 15 min. I went to find someone and the wait person could have cared less....needless to say we left and found a restaurant with service. Mandarin "Out of Touch".
