A local legend in delicious oriental cuisine is Szechuan Mandarin Restaurant featuring chef Tat Law. They have been in business for 29 years. And even though the entrées names may be the same as elsewhere, everything tastes a little more exotic and delicious here. And being a Szechuan restaurant means that they offer lots of spicy hot entrées, which are very tantalizing and delicious. What also separates this restaurant from all of the rest is their fine wine list and intimate cocktail lounge. And they have a nice patio for dining. The menu is almost endless.
A solution for what to order can be simplified by ordering one of their complete dinners ($11–$20) per person. These exotic meals are served with a savory soup and your choice of salad or egg roll. Easy to recommend is their family combination. It comes with a savory moo goo gai pan, Szechuan beef, almond chicken, Szechuan pork, sweet-and-sour pork or chicken, moo shi pork or chicken and lots of mixed vegetables. And for dessert you have a choice of ice cream or an almond cookie. Present their coupon for $5 off your bill of ($25) or more (dine-in only).
Szechuan Mandarin offers a wine cellar, special meals for connoisseurs and gourmet wine dinners for two, which include a bottle of wine. This restaurant’s review sounds a lot different from all the other Chinese restaurants. It should, because it’s our City’s first one-of-a-kind Chinese gourmet restaurant with an accent on fine wines.
Gracious and friendly owner Mark Sun and Chef Tat greet diners and oversee the kitchen. Fabulous dining selections are many and may include a savory fillet of sea bass that is pan-grilled and simmered in a tantalizing kung pao sauce.
