There is an old saying that one saying that you should only eat Chinese food in China and Japanese in Japan. Mandarin can make you eat those words. Their environment is not the newest but their food is excellent. If you allow wait staff to...More

The Mandarin has something for everyone. Best sushi in town made by sushi chef who is an artist! Try the Red Devil Roll. Great Chinese food as well, and top notch service. Don't miss this dining experience.
