I've eating at Mandarin Grill for 24 years and it's my favorite in all of Tucson and Southern Arizona. Service is wonderful and food is all made from scratch so NO MSG. That's important to me as I am allergic, plus their food doesn't need it. Winnie, the owner is super nice and therefore hires great servers. We moved to... More

Free standing building on Grant Road. Friend and I were there for lunch. Immediately greeted, seated. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. Menu is unbelievable in variety and really very varied. Lunch was served in good time, and presented well. This is a good neighborhood type Chinese restaurant. We chose different items, and both were good. The hot and sour... More

This place is more then just a "Chinese food", they are offering plenty of taste on their menu. I went there twice so I can try and experience more. The Mandarin grill is clean what's really important to me, service is nice and in silent mode (silent as relaxing) from the beginning to the end. Food is pretty much affordable... More

This place serves very good Chinese food. Our main dishes were very excellent, probably the best in this town where Chinese food is in general not at a high standard. The service was good.

I can neither confirm nor deny, but I can say it was delicious at a very reasonable price. Our server was friendly and attentive, while not being intrusive on our conversation. Parking was easy.

My wife and I ate here for the first time after we moved into a condo within 2 miles of this eatery. It surpassed our expectations. I opted for a Hunan-style offering as that's my favorite type of Chinese food, but most Chinese places only offer Cantonese or Mandarin, or occasionally Szechuan. It was quite tasty. My wife liked her... More

My wife and I have lived all over the states and in Japan as well as other countries. I love Oriental cuisine, and its hard to find one to suite my pallet. I have driven 40 miles just for Oriental. We have eaten at numerous oriental restaurants in the Tucson area and none of them compare to the Mandrain Grill.... More

I stopped in for a very early dinner and was waited on immediately. The staff was eating their dinner before the rush! I ordered the dinner special so the hot and hearty egg drop soup arrive immediately. And before I could finish that a steamy square plate heaped with sesame chicken, chicken fried rice and an egg roll arrived to... More
