I cook Asian and we dine at many and I must say, regarding the quality of the food and preparation, this is State of the Art. Last time, I had the spicy Szechuan Beef. The meat was so tender, it fell apart, not a usual thing for Asian restaurants. I highly-recommend Mandarin Kitchen.

I found their rest. Nice and clean. Waited and sat quickly. I ordered the special for one. It's the only combo plate for one person. Otherwise you have to do the pick and chose. It came quickly and lots of it. So why only a good. It was bland and the soup was warm. Warm enough for me to pick... More

Family owned and operated, everything is fresh and delicious! The pan seared dumplings are to die for. Spring rolls, amazing....my dads fav is the five flavor red beef! I love the moo shoo pork and the porch egg foo young! The fried rice is also so good!!! Try it all! Been coming here for over a decade!

We regularly order takeout here. Service is nice and super fast. Comes out hot and beautifully boxed so it comes home hot too. Our favorite is the sesame chicken. We have eaten in the restaurant and like that too, but like Chinese and a movie at home better, and leftovers are great sauted up the next day.

Mandarin Kitchen is my "go-to" restaurant for Chinese food. This is a 15 minute drive from my home but it is worth it. This is a family run restaurant and you are likely to see the owners when you stop by. Menu includes typical Chinese-American food but they also have some signature dishes that are great too. They also have... More

My daughter ordered take out from them while we were visiting and it was the best we've ever had. If I lived there I would eat Chinese food anywhere else. Super yummers

If you're like our family, once you find a good local Chinese restaurant, you don't go anywhere else. For over 12 years, we went to the Rose Garden on Pacific Hwy near the airport before it closed in the 80s. It took us a few years to discover the Mandarin Kitchen and now we've been enjoying BBQ pork fried rice,... More

Husband and I grew up in Federal Way, WA and enjoyed quality Chinese dinners at the old Dynastys. One item we particularly liked was the Almond Fried Chicken but hadn't found another restaurant with the same recipe; now we have! We chose to try Mandarin Kitchen because Almond Fried Chicken was on the menu and the TripAdvisor ratings were high.... More
