This place looks like a throwback and it is. Formal decor, waiters in suits, red banquette booths ... the service is proper. And it's all perfect. If you order Mu Shu, the waiter assembles your rolls for you, with style! And the food is top-notch: fresh and flavorful. We go back whenever we're in the area.

Not fancy, but predictability outstanding food. Gunpowder chicken is my favorite. Appetizers of note included pan fried dumplings, cold sesame noodles with spicy sauce, scallion pancakes. Delicious soups. Pleasant old fashioned environment

On a recent visit to family in the hospital, I sought a late dinner that would be delicious and comfortable after a long day. Mandarin Garden was just the ticket! Lovely restaurant, friendly staff, and fabulous food. Wish I lived closer!

Mandarin Garden is a Willow Grove institution, and deservedly so. We've never had a bad dish from the regular menu, and they have seasonal specials that are tasty and creative. Every visitor we've brought here (many) has loved the food. Very solid and consistent kitchen.

When it comes to Chinese restaurants this is the family favorite. I have been visiting MG since 1991 and it ALWAYS hits the mark. Great service, very nice staff and management and YES the food is well prepared and served. From the Wonton soup to the chicken with cashew nuts along with many others, all are very good.

Desiring to try a new place from our usual, we were very pleasantly surprised with the quality and preparation of the food here. Very traditional, but quite delicious. I had the lemongrass shrimp and scallops with an egg roll and Esther had the steamed chicken and veggies. We split the most excellent pistachio ice cream for dessert.

We have a favorite Chinese food restaurant when we visit the area, but we were feeling we wanted something different. We remembered some friends telling us they liked the place and so we stopped in having been by literally hundreds of times over the years. It was quite good and busy.

We order takeout all the time from here and they always say it will be ready in 15 minutes. We have also eaten in and the service is excellent. it's a quite place where you can enjoy your dinner with a drink and they even have a section if you are a larger crowd that offers some privacy.

This excellent neighborhood Chinese restaurant maintains its quality and appeal. The menu may be slightly smaller but it is still large and the food is delicious. Connected by ownership to Cin Cin, another Chinese favorite, every item is 5/5. Service: Friendly, courteous, helpful and prompt. 5/5. Décor: 4/5 Clean and brightly lit.
