We had the best server, Julian, was so friendly, made suggestions, answered questions. The food was really good, fast, fresh and we had plenty left over, also tried sushi which was really good. Will be back.

Food came very quickly on a Saturday evening. Orange beef was tasty and a bit spicy! Korean bul-go-gi was decent though I'd choose something else next visit. The veggies accompanying were nothing to write home about. People have said the TNT sushi roll is very good there - didn't get a chance this time.

Mandarin beef is the absolute best. Served over a bed of lettuce may seem odd but it's delish! Sizzling rice soup and pot stickers are also a must. =)

This is a regular stop for our work crew. We enjoy dining here at least once a week for lunch. They have freshly made sushi, with a large selection to choose from. I especially enjoy the Chinese lunch specials. Everything from chicken chow mein...Shrimp lo mein...Sweet and Sour chicken...Midnight Shrimp, my personal favorite, and their super delicious Hot n' Sour soup. Their eggrolls....crab rangoon...shrimp tempura and many more delicious appetizers are included with your meal. If you enjoy Asian Cuisin and like variety and quality...the Mandarin is a must stop for 1 or many.

There are some interesting menu choices. The dishes were as advertised on the menu and done well. The ambience is also good. Unfortunately the service was bad. The waiter was not attentive, the joint was not busy so no excuse for the rude behavior. Similar service was being dished out to other tables around us. The owner and hostess was nice but the rest of the wait staff did not reflect that warmth at all.
