Don't bother with the Mandarin.
We have been going to the Mandarin for over 20 years and it was always our favorite Chinese restaurant in Napa until they sold to new owners. The food now is BAD! Bland and tasteless soup, mediocre food and a big jump in price. Also, no more salad with the yummy dressing.
The best Chinese food out side of San Francisco.
We went to Mandarin Chinese with a group of friends after a long day of wine tasting in the valley. We found Mandarin to be a great place to relax and enjoy our meals after a relaxing day. The Walnut Prawns were out of this world and their variety of dim sum was quite impressive. We will all live in San Francisco and feel that the Mandarin lives up to our high expectations of Chinese food. A must try place. We will return everytime we are back in Napa.
