You're quite correct, cucumber and spring onions should accompany the duck and it's rare something like this is missed, so apologies for that there is no excuse. With regards to your Wonton noodle soup, it seems like the waiter misheard you and... More

Hi Jo, thanks for your review and thanks for choosing to celebrate your anniversary with us. We're glad you enjoyed your evening with us but I'm disappointed to hear that our waiter didn't mention the service charge already being added when your husband left an additional tip. Because the service charge is marked as optional on the bill the waiters... More

Thank you Lolly, of course it's great to hear when customers enjoy our food and our staff's service but it's also nice to hear when they appreciate the wine list, it took quite some time to put together, although the job wasn't exactly arduous! ;-) Hope to see you again Team Mandarin More
