During the holiday season and beyond, The Mandalay warmly welcomes customers with an array of mouthwatering Chinese cuisine in an elegant atmosphere.

In fact, the Alakea Street restaurant will serve a delicious dim sum brunch buffet and a dinner buffet on both Christmas Day, Dec. 25 and New Year’s Day, Jan. 1.

The brunch buffet will have seatings at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., while the dinner buffet seatings will be at 5 and 7:30 p.m. The price of the brunch buffet — featuring a large variety of Hong Kong-style dim sum — is $27.99 for adults, $23.99 for seniors 60 and older, and $17.99 for children ages 3-12. The cost of the dinner buffet is $32.99 for adults, $27.99 for seniors and $18.99 for children. The dinner buffet will feature

Roasted Pig, Peking Duck with Bun, Prime Rib, Shrimp Cocktail and more.

Long Life Peach Bun (80 cents each)

Meanwhile, all year long, the downtown Honolulu eatery also offers four different popular and sumptuous dinner specials for tables of 10.

Owner Linda Chan shares that the spacious, comfortable restaurant has a total seating capacity of 330 and private rooms can be configured with one, two, three or even five tables.

She adds that the kitchen is open from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, but the restaurant stays open until 10 p.m. for parties.

Chan also shares that free validated parking is available Monday through Friday after 5 p.m. and all day Saturday and Sunday across the street at Bishop Square. Paid (non-validated) public parking is available during the day Monday through Friday at Alii Place.


The Mandalay fills the bellies of happy patrons with a vast selection of scrumptious foods. Among them is Mandalay Delight Salad ($42 for 10 people, $21 for five people), a great way to kick off lunch or dinner. This yummy dish includes shredded chicken and duck served alongside neatly sliced pieces of refreshing cantaloupe, green melons, apple and cucumber, accompanied by a salad dressing consisting of tasty peanut butter and other seasonings. Owner Linda Chan advises customers to order this charming creation ahead of time to ensure availability. Mandalay Delight Salad can also be ordered as part of the set Menu C on the dinner specials list for tables of 10.

Additionally, a wildly popular dim sum item at the eatery is Long Life Peach Bun (80 cents per piece), which customers often order for dessert. This little bit of heaven features black sugar enrobed in an attractive peach-shaped bun.

So, whenever you’re gathering with friends, family, co-workers or just seeking the finest Chinese food, make The Mandalay your place to stay.
