Give yourself and loved ones the gift of a delicious meal, or ring in the new year with satiated bellies and head on over to The Mandalay, now located on Waialae Avenue. For nearly 30 years, owners Larry and Linda Chan have been committed to serving Hawaii with quality Chinese cuisine and continue to do so with the several platters The Mandalay has to offer this holiday season.

Families can enjoy the Holiday Special Platter ($98), which serves four to six people and includes gon lo mein, char siu, honey walnut shrimp, green beans, and four pieces each of the har gow, siu mai, potstickers, shrimp chive dumplings, half-moons, spring rolls, gau gee and jin dui.

“We wanted to incorporate a bunch of long-standing customer favorites all onto one tray so that customers can enjoy a bit of everything at a budget friendly price,” says manager Christina Chan.

The Mandalay also has a Christmas and New Year’s Day Meal ($128) and has preorders for pickup available in Kaimuki, Aiea and Kaneohe. It includes Chinese pickled cucumbers, soy sauce whole chicken, char siu baby back ribs, green beans with garlic, salt and pepper shrimp, sticky rice with lap cheong and red bean gin dui.

The Dim Sum Platter ($55), meanwhile, is always a good choice for parties and regularly offered at the local restaurant.

Platters feed four to six people and advance notice is recommended to ensure the restaurant will have adequate supply. Platters will also be offered Christmas and New Year’s Day, and will require order and prepayment in advance.
