food & place is nice!!! the staffs are polite too. hard to find car park lot as the open car park will be fill up during lunch time. It can be easily accessible by public transport.
Love the quiet ambience (we went for dinner on a weeknight). Food was delightful, portions not too much. The place is ideal for intimate family dinners.
Very attentive n good service & delicious food. Very comfortable environment. Near to Outram park mrt. Convenient location. Worth a visit. Suitable for group gathering
Grand Mandarina has always been one of my favourite Chinese restaurants. I have been numerous times and the food standard has always been the same good standard. I especially love the Soft Shell crab with pork floss and the Fried Rice with the tobikos. As for dessert, my favourite is the durian ice cream with red beans served in a coconut.
Went there with hubby to celebrate his birthday... very nice ambience and car park was right beside the restaurant.. however was a little disappointed with the food especially when the reviews raved about it. Not all was bad thought.. the crabmeat soup and cream prawn was great... jus not a fan of the three egg spinach as well as the fried rice... However, the special deal was that if we spent above $80 during bday month, we get a free lobster /crab. So we got e truffle lobster... it was really fresh... but again, didn't really agree with the method of cooking, kinda dampened the taste of the lobster... It's not too bad a place, but I guess I have had better...
The food and service were good. And you pay for what you get so it isn't a place for cheap bites. The famous Honey Chashao was not to my like as it was too fatty for me but my friend said it was good. I liked the rest dim sims and I had way too much and not regretted. Be aware that everything is charged including the starter we didn't order, icing water, wet tissue etc. But I think that's the way in Singapore.
Reserved table for lunch on Sat at 12pm. Restaurant was not full. Service staff was helpful but could be a little more attentive. I thought menu was interesting and very different from other Dim Sim restaurants. Taste wise for most items were so so. Had the fried carrot cake but it was cold when it arrived and not crispy. The signature Char Siew looked good but when you taste it, it was coated with lots of sugar crystals. Nice but it did not quite melt in the mouth and was just sweet. I felt it could have been better roasted to give some meat taste.
Visited the restaurant for dinner Sunday evening. Interestingly, the place was well patronized despite the current economic lull. Eating area was nicely laid out, and pleasant enough for conversing while dining. Service was attentive. Food quality was alright, and we especially enjoyed the double-boiled lotus-root soup. Price-per-serving was perhaps on the high side though. Overall, it was a nice experience. Would be inclined to pay a return visit, but probably only for very special occasions.
Food was good. However most dishes have a fixed portion size. Would be good if they expand their menu to have bigger portions. Overall a good place to eat with family. It's a fine dining restaurant, so do expect the usual waiting time for a fine dining setting
Celebrated my dad's birthday there and they surprised us with shou tao and a lighted birthday candle. Thanks all, you've made our visit there so memorable and wonderful. We'd be back for more dim sum soon! :)
