I have been coming to this restaurant, primary for take out for years. They never disappoint. The food quality is very good. The value is good. But the service, professionalism, and efficiency is, quite simply, outstanding. I usually arrive, order food, & have a great Mai Tai while waiting. As I write this, other patrons are doing the same (although... More

Drove by actually looking for another restaurant, and decided to stop here instead. Staff could not have been any more friendly. Promptly seated (was a Thursday at 5:15...place was not at all busy). Food came out quickly. Water was refilled seemingly every time we took a sip. Plenty of leftovers for next night's dinner. Probably a dozen or so carry... More

Ate here this evening with family. Had a 5PM reservation (mom, you know), and had a nice table in a corner so a bit quieter than much of the room. Due to the holiday they were operating with a severely reduced menu (maybe 30% of the usual options) and the food came out quickly. The meats (chicken, shrimp) were fine... More

I've been coming here for years and the warm welcome, service and friendliness is a consistent factor. Each person is greeted like an old friend. The wait staff is very experienced and know just when and how to approach your table. They never interrupt right in the middle of a sentence, everything happens like magic. I think people often forget... More

This is a place with real chinese food, preparation and flavors. The staff is very friendly and the prices are fair. Good size of portions, you can share the dish.

If you're looking for fresh and satisfying Chinese food outside of Chinatown, you can't go wrong with Mandarin Gourmet. Conveniently located in a strip mall in putterham circle, this family friendly restaurant serves up generous portions of entrees. My husband's favorite dish, shrimp with lobster sauce, served "New York style"(white sauce),was fine but slightly disappointing because they changed the way... More

Had a very nice family dinner here and enjoyed the various dishes. Having lived in Hong Kong and China I am familiar with this tasty food! All the dishes were really good and quite large portions. Price was also quite reasonable. All in all we enjoyed it very much and will certainly be back.

The place caters to the senior/wealthy residents of the nearby neighborhood. So unfortunately, the prices are high but the quality is low. Very low. One peek at the silverware on the table and it was clear - nothing good will come out of that dinner. The silverware is of the cheapest kind, and was very very old and worn out.... More

I ordered Hong Kong Crispy Shrimp and the shrimp breading was gummy and had no flavor. I had been going there for may years and that was the final draw. Oh, the wonton soup was tasteless and the sliced pork look like it came from a package.

Horrible shrimp lunch. Tiny flavorless mealy shrimp served with a load of chopped onions. The onions were meant to be filler for the lack of shrimp. This was a lunch option and It was not good. Perhaps I chose the wrong lunch special, however it seems to me that all of the options should be delicious. Service was terrific. The... More
