Fabulous meal with top-class service. Will definitely come back again. We had eaten here many years ago: so pleased to find that everything was as we had remembered it. Our guests were delighted, too. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Friendly and efficient staff. A most extensive menu. The food was excellent . We were made to feel most welcome from arrival to departure. We were visitors to Bournemouth and I would certainly return to the “mandarin”.

Fabulous meal, great service and great atmosphere on a busy Saturday night. There was such a good choice we had to opt for one of the set menus as it was proving too difficult to choose. Great night all round !

Didn't know what to expect when booking on line, although Trip Advisor rated it no. 1 in Bournemouth, so was a bit apprehensive as it was my wife's and my anniversary meal. All I can say is 'WOW' A lovely atmosphere and décor to match. The service was quick, the staff very polite and the food was fantastic and well presented. Unfortunately I won't be able to go very often as I'm from Peterborough but I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality meal out. 10/10

We've been eating at this restaurant for years. It seems the addition of the word fusion into the cuisine type also means slightly smaller portions. In our case this is fine and doesn't detract from the experience at all. One genuine downside for us is that food warmers are no longer used. Yes the plates arrive hot but they arrive well in advance of the food which renders the idea of heating the plates a redundant exercise. I'm being a bit picky but this is something they need to rectify but having said all of that, we'll be back.

We visited the Mandarin on a Saturday evening and our booking was for 6:15pm. There were 3 of us in our party - my partner, her 12 year old daughter and myself. The staff were friendly when taking the order and accommodating to our questions regarding the menu. Starters (Dim Sum) were very tasty as was the Crispy Duck middle course. The main courses were a different story, though the food was fine. We were eventually delivered one of our mains and all three of our sides after a lengthy wait. We then had to wait for 15 minutes for the next two mains to arrive, only after two requests to the waiting staff to find out where the remainder of our main courses had got to. We also had to ask twice for more drinks as the original request was not acted upon by the waiting staff. Overall the food was good, though expensive for what it was, with the exception being the Banana Fritters which were cold and greasy. The waiting staff appeared to be frantically running around trying their best but our dining experience on this evening left a lot to be desired.

It took a long time before our drinks/meal order was taken and then the 3dishes were served so far apart that I had to state that we wanted to eat our single course meal together! The 3 lagers we ordered came as pints - we weren't asked what size we wanted. When I paid the bill I asked for service to be added to my Credit Card total - it wasn't, so I left a pile of cash in the middle of the table. They did seem a bit understaffed!

Fantastic food great service. We ordered from the tapas menu 3 dishes for £7.50. Excellent value great for 6 of us sharing. Also ordered takeaway for my son who is vegan. They had a separate vegetarian menu and where happy to ask the chef to make adjustment for vegan. Will definitely eat here again and happy to recomend.

A very quiet evening at the Mandarin, with good friends (although usually it's very busy)! The food was up to the usual high standard, with awesome toffee bananas to finish. The only slight downside was that the satay skewers were rather tough this time, and I missed the pineapple rice from the Peking feast. The service is always excellent, and this was no exception.
