It's now under new ownership & the Mustang Steak House. While the Mandarin had good food, the restaurant was not very clean. It was completely torn apart, cleaned & redesigned for the new steak house.

Nice place. The man behind the counter was very inviting. I was surprised that no one was in there. The son was very chatty. Enjoyed the artifacts & for $1 see the redlight museum.

On way into town called ahead and ordered entrees/soup to go. Was ready upon arrival and we got food value. Took to hotel to eat. Generous portions and lots left over for a late night post-hot tub snack. Not the best but certainly tasty and hit the spot after a long drive. Beware, the VC restaurants all close up around...

We had lunch here one day because we decided to check out the view from here. We weren't expecting much in the way of food but we were pleasantly surprised. My hot and sour soup was delicious, lemon chicken was outstanding and the view was good too. Thank you so much for a wonderful meal!

The fish in black bean sauce was very good. And we live right next Oakland China town, so we know good Chinese food.

We were on a trip to Virginia City from Reno. We are from California and that's the place where you get a good chinese restaurant almost everywhere. However, this was Nevada and we seriously didn't expect nice homestyle chinese food in the midst of the desert. The food is good, the portions are not that huge though. So better order... More

We have been to Virginia City many times and have eaten here on a few visits, but the last time we were here, we saw something that appalled us and we will not eat here again. The food was tasty enough and the service was good, everyone was friendly. However we were able to see the into the kitchen and... More

The best Chinese food after a long day of drinking. The staff is so incredibly friendly. Be sure to check out the museum down stairs from the restaurant.
