best ever had – love the food, crab cheese puffs and peking chicken are the best!!!
DELICIOUS – I love this place; unfortunately, like other reviews... it is quite pricy for the amount. Love their spicy prawns and peking chicken; the fast service is awesome. I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.
Pretty good. – This place is a little nicer than most Chinese restaurants and the quality is usually reasonable. The food tastes good and it is inexpensive. I like the eggrolls, sesame beef, fried rice, and honey walnut prawns. Service is mediocre, but most Asian places are like that.
Love the food! – If you are looking for great Chinese food, this is the place to go! The servers are really nice too.
Try the crispy eggplant in garlic sauce – Vegetarians! try the crispy eggplant in garlic sauce!! I've never had this dish in any other Chinese place and it is totally awsome! :) you'll love it..
Consistent Service and Quality – There's a good reason a crowd almost always gathers by the door waiting for tables (and take-out). Mandarin Gourmet may not be totally "authentic" Chinese cuisine, but people enjoy it. The ingredients are fresh, variety of dishes plenty, atmosphere is appealing, and service is prompt. Some dishes are on the greasy side, but that's typical with most Chinese food. My favorite dish is Kung Pao Prawns - quite tasty and best I've found locally. My only odd complaint -- it is often difficult to locate a bottle of soy sauce for your table.
a classic – this is one of my favorite restaurants. i dont see whats the big deal about it being westernized. i would recommend this to anyone looking for a good place to dine.
"Chinese American" food – If you want authentic Chinese food, this isn't the restaurant for you (and you can kind of tell by the clientele). But overall, the food is quite good! The prawns with cream sauce is very good. The prices are a little high and the portions are smaller than average Chinese restaurants but you're paying for service, which is way, way better than other Chinese restaurants. (The Mandarin Gourmet in Cupertino is a bit more pretentious than this one.)
