The lobster noodles were the highlight for me. The salted egg squid was also really nice but the portion size was rather sad... certainly not worth the cost.
Other dishes were decent but I wouldn't say they were anything special.
Service was generally ok, we had a fairly attentive waiter but can't comment if that applies on the whole.
I would say that when we were waiting to find out if there was space, we were kept waiting for a long time - various waiters passed by but it took a long time before one finally acknowledged us.
I was stuck in London for business and was dying to find a good Asian restaurant as my boss wasn’t remotely adventurous with food, and we needed a place within walking distance of our hotel. I stumbled across Mandarin Kitchen, and persuaded him to take a chance. The service was great. The menu was very large and we found something easy for my boss, and I was able to find something off piste, and not so normal. If you’re in the area, find the time and go, 100%.
We like the lobster noodles here. We have tried a few other places but still prefer it here. It can sometimes be hit and miss but lately the standard has been pretty good and consistent. We also like the arctic clam wrap which is a mix of jelly fish with smoked duck and chicken drizzled with xo sauce and served on lettuce. Other dishes which are pretty good are the sizzling beef with mandarin sauce, sweet and sour pork and the crispy aromatic duck. The service is friendly and quick. If you are planning to come for dinner during the weekend, it would be wise to book.
I had a perfectly pleasant evening until I received the bill. We ordered half a crispy duck which came with a tiny portion of spring onions and cucumber (suitable for a 1/4 crispy duck). We requested an appropriate serving for the dish and were charged £1.50 for the privilege. When the bill arrived (which was over £200) I queried the £1.50 charge and received a blunt response from a particularly arrogant waiter. I then decided we would take the £1.50 charge off the £25 service charge. He completely ignored my request. I will vote with my feet, I will not return. Sadly in my opinion the service has gone down hill, portions are smaller, greedy pricing & some arrogant staff. Save your money and go elsewhere.
Great experience, came in quite late , 30 minutes before closing and still service was great .
Starters are excellent prawns they use are fresh, great sesame prawn toast , salt and pepper prawn and seaweed 👍🏼 also the lobster noodle was great , just wish it would be little less greaser but I guess that’s the Chinese way , beef also was smooth and light to digest . Like this place a lot probably top 3 oriental dining spots in London .
O yes also very fairly priced !
