Authentic dim sum served on weekdays for lunch. Delicious, in a stunning setting. Menu includes pork buns, steamed dumplings and several desserts.

Just a step from the crowds of the Casino, where over 1500 staff work, Mandarim greets customers with elegance and reserved quiet. The food is great, with a wide choice for all.

Although the staff is a bit relaxed and not as attentive as a few years ago, the truth is that, in my opinion, Mandarim is still the best Chinese restaurant in Portugal.

I rarely eat in Chinese restaurants as the commercial adaptations done in most are disappointing but the Mandarin is on the top of the list of the restaurants I go regularly, namely for their Peking Duck ( which has to be ordered in advance as it requires a 24h preparation and they only hold an handful of them every day)....

we really enjoyed the dinner at this restaurant, even though we weren't organised to book it in advance and it was busy enough, we were able to get a table at the terrace overlooking to the casino's garden / coloured water fountains. food was delicious and staff was very nice too.

Let me start with the food: very decent Chinese food, good flavors. The mango pudding reminded me of Hong Kong where it was my kids' favorite. BUT, we never paid this much for the quality we got. Never. Why do I mention the snobs? A full page of organic wines on the wine list but also a full page of... More

We had heard that this was a good place to eat in Estoril so thought we would try it. My husband ordered beef noodles and battled to find the beef!! I had honeyed pork ribs which were more fat than meat. Definitely over priced........have had better food from a chinese take away!!
