Take the lead when it comes time to deciding where to appease hunger callings and bring the gang to The Mandalay.
Whether returning or new, there is always an old favorite to enjoy and something new to discover. This Chinese restaurant’s extensive menu boasts more than 120 dishes to indulge in, plus a delightful dim sum selection with each item freshly prepared and cooked to order.
If diners are looking for something steaming hot and soupy, cold and refreshing or beautifully plated entree selections, The Mandalay has it all. Be it from the sea or land, meat or vegetables, there is surely something for all to take pleasure in, and the restaurant does not add any MSG into its cooking.
If looking at a menu of more than a hundred mouth-watering items seems intimidating, ease the decision and start with the popular Seafood with Vegetables in Taro Basket ($22.95 small, $38.95 large). Packed with shrimp, calamari, scallops, fish fillet and a medley of vegetables, the deep-fried taro basket holding it all provides a tasty and alluring base.
Seafood not exactly hitting the spot? Not to worry because Peking Duck ($38 whole, $20 half) is a crisp choice. Surrounded by pillowy-soft steamed buns, the tender meat of the duck accompanied by plum sauce will take taste buds out of this world.
Veggie lovers can munch on Mandalay Delight Salad ($21 for five people, $42 for 10), which comes with cantaloupe, green melons, apple, cucumber, and even shredded chicken and duck for a meaty bite.
There is so much more to discover at The Mandalay so be sure to stop in the next time you are craving some quality Chinese cuisine. Free validated parking at Bishop Square is available Monday-Friday after 5 p.m. and all day on the weekends.
