Went to dinner at this restaurant on a Saturday night at 8:30. Which may have contributed to this average review. One other table occupied, we were seated quick, and had menus in hand inside of three minutes. I had the special, sweet/sour pork, fried rice, spring roll, and chow mein. Overall just generic Chinese food, fried rice is just brown... More

I can always count on the Mandarin to have excellent Chinese food. The service is great & people so very friendly.

Disgusting excuse for Chinese food. Go to Safeway to buy their garbage Chinese over this. Or drive to Aldergrove.

Always good food-although the portions for take out have become more expensive and smaller portions.

Ordered food close to closing time. Paid close to $60. Went home and open the cartons and could not believe how greasy and skimpy the portions were. Could not distinguished chicken from the vegetables, and meat in the beef dish was mushy and tasted terrible. I called the establishment to voice my concerns and there was no offer of compensation...

Mandarin Chinese Restaurant in Lynden had really good Chinese food. The breaded almond chicken and Mongolian beef were wonderful. Wish you could get hot and sour soup at lunch time. Kind of strange that you cannot. Not everyone likes egg drop soup. Also suggest offering black tea and not just green tea. Will be back!

I guess their main focus is on the takeout. The internal environment is so bad. I can deal with the lack of atmosphere, but what makes it difficult is the horribly inconsiderate behavior of the people there. On my most recent visit, there was a table of teenagers having such a loud conversation, laughing, joking, talking over the top of... More

Drove to Lynden for Mandarin food and was not disappointed. We ordered Mu Shu pork, garlic chicken, and a scallop dish. All of the tastes were distinctive, the scallops were not hot, aside from that it was excellent food. An oddity of this establishment, all entrees are served as meals, no ala carte dishes which brings the price up if... More

I love the food at this restaurant, get take-out from them often, but really have to ding them on a couple of things from my visit yesterday. 1. Got the order wrong, and didn't compensate me for having to make a second trip to get it right. The young woman who took the order was apologetic, but she charged me... More

We ate at the Lynden Mandarin Restaurant and loved it! We eat a predominantly vegan diet and were excited to see a great selection of dishes that worked for us. Even better yet was the quality of the food. We started with edamame and spring rolls, then had Sizzling Tofu and Moo Shu, again with Tofu. It was outstanding! The... More
