The food is good although I believe they were watering down the sauces. I've never had the left overs leak out of the carry out box before. The food was good, but they don't have enough staff to give good service, we had to wave down a waitress twice and it was a different girl each time. No one checked... More

We were put off with the fact that no other diners were in the restaurant the whole time we were there. Service was great. Food was good.

Walked into the bar to wait for my husband! Waited and waited some more. When the bartender finally came over I asked if they had any specials. She responded no she does Shots of vodka. No suggestions or menu was offered! I said never mind. Then I left for the restaurant.

I went with a group of about 10 people from the convention at the Marriott across the street. I was very impressed. Despite the size of the group, the service was excellent, the food came quickly, and was tasty. She thoughtfully seated our group at an empty corner of the room, so we could talk without being self-conscious about disturbing... More

We were extremely offended by the server When we received our check,she had written in a gratuity and had already processed the credit card prior to getting our payment authorization.. When we confronted her suddenly her ability to speak English became very poor. We have been customers for over 20 years. We will never return to the Mandarin Cove. We... More

I was at the Marriott for a conference and wanted somewhere close for dinner. When visiting the west coast the obvious choices are seafood and Asian, and a couple of people mentioned this place diagonally across the intersection from the hotel's side entrance. Food was good - not exceptional, but then I tend to favor Thai over Chinese. Service was... More

For those attending an event at the Keller Auditorium, this is the place for you. Seven of us drove into Portland for a Friday evening concert at the Keller. We made reservations and were seated promptly. The food portions were generous and each one of us was happy with our choice of food. Service was good. They even validate your... More

Very good, above average Chinese food. Very nice setting, big glass windows, bright and airy. Service was good for a Chinese restaurant. Generous portions. Everything is a la carte, so soup is extra and rice is extra.

It was not crowded when we arrived. It was happy hour and we ordered 2 drinks 2 orders of spring rolls and 2 waters. We received our drinks. Waited 20 minutes for one order of spring rolls and never received waters. We were told the other order of spring rolls was coming but by then we were done. Then she... More

This restaurant was very conveniently located across from our hotel. The service was good and the food was fresh and delicious. You could tell they actually cook it when you order instead of microwaving an old plate prepared hours or days before. I came back three more times because of how good the food was.
