“So very disappointed”
Review of Mandarin Wong

Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 November 2013

We had not been here in a few years, but our memories were of a really good Chinese restaurant. Being a Friday night, it was a little crowded, but aren't they all? My wife and I ordered 2 entrees and an appetizer. The waitress took our order including our choice of soup. When our order came it was my wife's entree and the appetizer. I didn't want her food to get cold so I insisted she eat. By the time she was half finished (notice we did not get our soup) I asked the waiter what was up. He assured me that our soup and my entree would come out very soon. I did get my entree (lukewarm), but we never got our soup. At the end of the meal we were asked how everything was. I really controlled myself and explained how disappointed we were. They blamed it on the kitchen staff. They did comp our appetizer. But next time I'll go just down the street to Grand Panda.

Our family has been eating here for about a decade now. We love the food as it is always fresh, tasty and nicely presented, but we love coming here for the friendly service and attentiveness of the staff. Our waiter always remembers our favorite dishes and brings it out quickly, piping hot; in fact, they bring out our soup as we soon as we sit down! True, it isn't fancy on the outside but it is clean and unpretentious. Great food and great service at great prices! Just be aware that it is a popular take out place too so they are busy during average supper hours; otherwise, we have always have a delicious experience and have lots of yummy leftovers!

Looks like a strip-mall hole-in-the-wall restaurant from the outside, and inside is nothing to write home about either. But the food is absolutely great, the staff is always friendly and pleasant, the prices are very reasonable, and every time my wife and I have gone there by ourselves or taken friends or family it's always been a wonderful time. Yes, they are almost always busy - not exactly a well-kept secret among local residents - but that's because of all the above-mentioned reasons. Personal favorite dishes are the Sezchwan string beans with pork, the combo lo mein, and the beef and broccoli. Have tried most items on the menu, and never had one that wasn't good. Whether you're passing thru or live in the area, you can't go wrong dropping by for lunch, dinner, or even calling in an order to go. Parties of 6 or more should call ahead and let them know you're coming in (reservations usually not taken), but for everyone else it's first-come first-serve. And be sure to tell the main waiter, Ming, we said "hi."

LIttle hole in wall restaurant with great service and yummy food !. I agree with other reviewer - not a date place to take someone to impress them, but a nice lunch or dinner place with friends and family to be sure. We went Sunday after church and it looked like everyone else in town did as well. It was pretty busy.

We ordered two meals:

Shrimp in Lobster Sauce - awesome.

Orange chicken. They do a more crispy style and my husband is used to the large soft pieces of chicken. When we made the comment to the waiter that it wasn't what we expected, he took it off the bill even though we said he didn't need to - he insisted.

You can't love everything on a menu. This was good place and we'll be back!
