Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mandarin Kitchen. You’ve done the world some good today.

overall ridiculously terrible

The service is ridiculously terrible. Especially during dim sum time. I called to ask if they take reservations, and they said no. They lied. they take reservation for ""few special people"" I noticed that while I stand in line to wait for a table of 8. it took 55 minutes to get a table. The trolley carts don't go to all the tables. The employees who walk around with the food trays don't go to all the tables. The ove... view more

Pricey, but good food

Maybe I'm clueless, but I've always had great food here, both pre-and-post remodeling. Yes, I'm often seated near the kitchen, but I'm fine with that. I'm white and have gone there with white friends and Chinese and Japanese-American friends and haven't experienced a variation in service. My foodie friends, friends that lived in NYC, and other picky eaters all prefer MC. It can be difficult to have dishes customi... view more

Terrible Service, overcharged.

My husband and I went to this restaurant with our Caucasian daughter and her Chinese finance from New York. We went on recommendations from two knowledgable Chinese friends who said this was the best Chinese restaurant in town capable of a big private party which we wanted to have for the kids when they are married next year. It was a great disappointment. First, we were seated near the kitchen door away from all ... view more

HORRIBLE! Will never go back.

My grandmother has gotten take-out from this place for YEARS, but after our experience last Saturday afternoon, she will not be back. She, my parents and myself stopped for lunch and were told the wait would be about 10 minutes. Fifteen minutes passed, then 20.... and we noticed that bigger parties of Chinese patrons were coming in and were seated before us. My mom asked the hostess if our name was still on the li... view more

I love DIM SUM

I ate at the Mandarin Kitchen before their remodel and I loved it. Taro cakes are my favorite, also the pork stuffed taro dumplings, oh and those egg tarts for desert! I will not claim to be an expert on Dim Sum as this is only the fourth Dim Sum I have tried (the others being in Detroit and in Windsor, Canada) BUT I will say that I consider myself to have a refined palate. I know when things are fresh, and that is h... view more

Mandarin's not #1...,

I don't know where the former 3 yr resident writer lived in China, who raved about Mandarin's, but they obviously must not have visited Honk Kong, Shenzhen or Guangzhou in ""South China""! Mandarin's dim sum is ""so so"" and perhaps it's biggest downfall is ""it's clientele"" who are very pushy, rowdy and clickish and who like to be seen as experts by appearing to think that having eaten in an Ann Chin's qualifies th... view more

Usually wonderful, but not great for my vegetarian friend.

I love going to Mandarin Kitchen for their soup special a few times a month. There other dishes are equally wonderful. The wait staff are usually attentive and polite and i leave feeling good. But last nite i brought a friend who is vegetarian (and also speaks Chinese by the way) and after the way the staff treated him, I'm feeling like i may not go back.\r
We arrived and my friend asked if ""any of the soup

Cruelty To Animals

These people cram live animals into small aquariums and think nothing of it. Asian cruelty reigns.

Best dim sum in Minnesota!!!

I recently moved back to MN after living in China for 3 years. My friends brought me to Mandarin Kitchen for dim sum and it was easily better than any dim sum I ate in China. We went on Sunday right when then opened and the line was already out the door. The selection was not only vast, but unique. Everything was freshly made. I have been to other dim sum places around the area and none could compare to the qual... view more

Overpriced and limited choices

A friend of mine visited me in Boston I took her to one of many resturants that serve dim sum. We had a great well priced dining experiance. Boston has a huge Chinese community and many places that serve dim sum. We went to Mandarin Kitchen on a Sunday to have good dim sum but instead got very limited choices of dishes that were not up to par. To top it off the prices were in excess and a 15% tip was automatically ad... view more
