This place was recommended by a friend and as this person is reliable regarding culnary delights we booked up and were not disappointed. Food was delicious and served very quickly, wine selection was good and better than most Chinese/Mandarin/Cantonese restaurants. Excellent waiting service with more staff than you could imagine,always at hand. If in Blackpool do not miss this experience.

My Dad used to take me to Michael Wan,s Manadrin in the late 70's, fond memories. More recently we have seen from afar rave reviews, awards and general applauds about the venue so thought best go back with my family to see what it was all about. The food options where extensive and the choice of food by our party... More

We have been here twice now, and enjoyed it both times. The restaurant is nicely decorated and conveniently located near the town and Winter Gardens. The service is good, but the restaurant gets very busy (booking is essential) so service can get slightly slower with waiters rushing around everywhere. The main dishes are slightly pricier than I would normally pay,... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our local hotel, so we were excited to try. Having made a reservation for 8pm, we came in and walked up to the front of the bar, where about five members of staff were busy rushing around. I made eye contact with one of the bar staff, who smiled but then looked away. A... More

You need to book this place as they are hugely popular. Queuing in the bar reception area. Just indicates the food must be good.

Really enjoyed the food here. We went for lunch and had the executive set menu. Mixed starter, which was gorgeous and then I had crispy chilli beef, which was also delicious. Would definitely recommend! Really good value for money!
