On 3/4/17, the hostess was on her phone and I had to find her to be seated for a late lunch. Food tasted OK but a few hours later I was intensely sick with food poisoning! Could it have been the tofu in the hot and sour soup? Who knows...but I won't eat there again.

This place had a nice waitress who was fast and very friendly and efficient but she just wasn't enough to give it a good score. The meal here was very boring, plain and dull and very "average", and it seemed that this place was very much Chinese food for Americans and not necessarily for Chinese.It was very bland and unspiring...

Located in an outdoor shopping complex, it is easy to reach by car or bus and has plenty of parking in the complex. Service was personal and the food good. The ambience was fine dining, with tablecloths.

My wife and I have been here a few times and have always noticed three things, 1) it is usually filled with Asians, 2) we have noticed how clean everything is and 3) everything we have ordered is almost grease free and that is not something we usually find in most Chinese restaurants and we eat a lot Asian food....

It is hard enough to make a go of it in today's economy when you do everything right. This place is doing everything wrong. I stopped in for just quick appetizers and a soda. Both the fantail shrimp and the paper wrapped chicken were greasy flavor lacking messes. The service needs to be flagged down, then is reasonable friendly. And... More

I use to live near this restaurant in the 90s and ate here a few times. My husband and I were looking for something to eat on our way into downtown Seattle. So, we decided to eat here.When I first went in the door didn't notice the smell of the sanitizer until sitting at our table. Food actually was not... More

Wife and I got online to find a place to eat the night before traveling into this zip code for a dental appointment. We wanted to search by zip code assuring us of a close by eatery to where we were going to be so we just entered the zip code+restaurant and ended up pulling up the website for this... More

It's been several years since our last visit, perhaps as much as 4-5 years. Having an entertainment card in hand, and my son dropping by with a hankering for Chinese, we decided to re-visit what once was one of our favorite places. Time has taken its toll. We decided to eat lightly, leaving room for Super Bowl Sunday following. We... More

The Mandarin Gate looks like another typical strip mall Chinese restaurant. Well it is but only if you don't look close enough. The menu has the usual assortment of dishes covering seafood, noodles, chicken, beef, pork, rice, soups, etc... Nothing there jumps out at you as special. The atmosphere is nothing special either, but we, meaning my friends and I,... More
