As high school seniors count down the days before graduation, caps and gowns are not the only thing in high demand. For a celebratory meal that satisfies any appetite, fine Chinese cuisine restaurant, The Mandalay, offers a variety of lunch and dinner buffets complete with the island’s most popular Hong Kong and Canton-style dishes.
“Our buffet menus have a good mix of everything and can be customized as well,” says Linda Chan, owner of The Mandalay. “To ensure freshness, everything is made to order, and we never use MSG.”
The Lunch Special Menu A ($198 plus tax and gratuity) feeds a table for 10 and is a customer favorite with five different types of dim sum and four entrèe specials. Dishes include Shrimp Dumpling, Pork Hash, Scallop Spinach Dumpling, Steamed Char Siu Bun, Peking Duck with Bun, Honey Walnut Shrimp and Egg Custard Tart.
For an evening function, the Dinner Special Menu A ($238 plus tax and gratuity) also serves 10 and consists of an appetizing line-up of both local favorites and unique specialties such as Diced Winter Melon with Seafood Soup, Crispy Chicken with Ginger Scallion, Shrimp with Salt and Pepper, Sautèed Beef with Chinese Greens and Tapioca with Coconut Milk.
Famous for its upscale atmosphere and affordable pricing, The Mandalay has become a staple in gourmet Chinese dining in Hawaii. “We cater to much of downtown’s business crowd, so our clients can recognize high quality cuisine at a good value,” says Chan. “Over the years, we have mastered our banquet set up to suit any party’s needs.”
Spread across two floors, The Mandalay can accommodate up to 320 diners, offering an impressive space for any occasion. Validated parking is available daily after 5 p.m. and on the weekends at Bishop Square parking across the street.
