“Pretty good pho soup”

New Mandarin Chinese Restaurant

Cuisines: Chinese

Reviewed 16 September 2016 via mobile

No charm to this place, kind of run down and certainly not the cleanest restaurant, however if you can look past this youl find the pho soup to be pretty good, looked at the buffet and noticed limited variety. The service is kind of edgy and abbrubt, no smiles or small talk witch is fine for me on work day. All in all if your in coon rapids and want some pho soup it certainly worth it to stop in.

If you're looking for a tidy place with a unique atmosphere, this is not the place for you. New Mandarin is situated in a run down stand alone, small restaurant. Look beyond the walls and you'll find a very friendly, family owned place with good food. The lunch buffet was small but offered choices for a variety of pallets. How can you go wrong for all you can eat at $6.50.

Most people know this as a Chinese buffet, which it is (and not too bad), but the thing that draws me to this place is their Vietnamese food, specifically, their pho, along with a variety of other noodle soups. The staff is very friendly as well. It is really a surprise to find something like that up in the north metro, but one I am glad to have. I come here frequently.

Hubby and I went and ordered off the menu. Apparently the buffet is only for lunch. We ordered the PuPU platter as an app--very good. We each had an entrée which was good but not fantastic. However, we did notice almost everyone was having the Pho which we have never tried but we ARE going back to try it. Looked really good.
We both love tea with Asian food but the tea here was like hot water. Had to ask for more tea bags---we added 4 more bags!!

While all dishes are wonderful here, the pho is excellent! We always order the Vietnamese fried egg rolls also, these are to die for.
