It’s a very popular restaurant for people come for fresh seafood and dim-shin. I have been coming this restaurant for long time, enjoy all kinds of nice dishes. With family and friends, it’s a nice place for celebrations.

Super busy, only serving dim sum on weekends. Love the food. Parking is not that great. Best advice is GO EARLY.

Wow. If you desire authentic Chinese, this is your place. I've not experienced anything quite like it, except, perhaps Shuang Cheng, in Dinkytown. If I had to choose between the two, the tip goes to Mandarin Kitchen because it also provides parking. Unless you're familiar...More

Tons to choose from. Very crowded on Sunday. Almost all "deep fried" or "crispy" are fantastic. Can't say enough good things about the dim sum but their regular menu is also very extensive & they open 'till midnight. A bit too expensive, though

We had a large family dinner at the Mandarin Kitchen. There were 25-30 people. We asked the Manager to pick the menu at an agreed upon price per person/table. This is the way many Chinese people do it. The food was absolutely fabulous and they...More
