This place is better known as a dim sum restaurant. We came for dinner, it was not bad, but not memorable. Maybe we will come back to try their dim sum.
Dim sum was okay, I did not like the wrapped sticky rice with chicken but I did like the tofu wrapped thing with pork. Seafood crispy noodles were delicious, too.Bathrooms were clean.
The homemade noodles, knife cut with the beef soup is fantastic. The soft texture of the beef is paired with fresh noodles in a soup that is wonderful. Recommend! Clean, minimal decor, friendly staff -- an overall great experience. Super affordable and worth it.
My family and I used to go here when we were knee high and they were in LA's Chinatown. The food is as good as when I remembered it. If you are looking for some good down home Chinese food, this is the place for it. The dai lo mein and pot stickers are delicious!Just a note that they used to be called Mandarin Deli when they were in Chinatown but are now called Mandarin Noodle House.
I love getting their spiced beef bowl. Really good taste and the quality is good too. Inside there is lots of veggies such as tofu and enoki mushrooms.
I said it before and I'll say it again if you want Asian food go to SGV. So many great places and this is one. Hot pot is fantastic and the bbq is the best!
Descent Chinese food restaurant in the area. Expect some wait time because this place is always packed and they only let you seat in when all people of your group show up. About the food: Mongolian Beef- It was the first dish that was served. The taste was great but a bit too flavorful as first dish... I could not taste the Pan Fried Bao after this. I would recommend to eat this toward middle or the end, and eat it with rice. XLB (Soup dumplings)- it's average, the flavor was good and there's some soup inside the dumplings; but it did not give me the "wow" impression. The staffs did not provide us spoons for this dish. Beef Wrap- Good, I liked how they put cucumber inside the roll, gave it a refreshing taste in contrast to the beef. Salt Pepper Fried Pork Chop- I'm not a big fan of this dish, but I tried it. The texture of the pork was very tender. According to my friends to loves fried pork chop, they rated this dish a solid A. Pan Fried Bao- the presentation looked so good and the sesame of top added crispness to the texture; but unfortunately the dish was a bit lack of tastes (especially we ate it after the Mongolian Beef). I expected there would be some soup inside the bun, but it did not happened. The business has 3 locations in Monterey Park and there were all close by each other. Parking lot and free street parking available.
All you Din Tai Fung geeks are missing out! Most of the same dishes can be had here, INCLUDING the juicy pork dumplings and spicy won tons! Add on some great dishes (tenderloin beef, seaweed fish, Shanghai rice cake), WAAYYY better pricing and generous portions and I'll pick this over DTF any time!
Wanted taiwanese and came here. The beef noodle was decent but the beef was very tendon. The dumplings were good.
I've been a couple of times. This is my go-to place when i want some real authentic tofu soup in my area. The adjumma is always super nice.
