This place serves very good Chinese food. Our main dishes were very excellent, probably the best in this town where Chinese food is in general not at a high standard. The service was good.

Very glad we stopped for lunch. They have a Great Lunch menu with excellent prices. Huge portions and very fast service. Very tasty and no MSG. Can accommodate large parties.

I can neither confirm nor deny, but I can say it was delicious at a very reasonable price. Our server was friendly and attentive, while not being intrusive on our conversation. Parking was easy.

My wife and I ate here for the first time after we moved into a condo within 2 miles of this eatery. It surpassed our expectations. I opted for a Hunan-style offering as that's my favorite type of Chinese food, but most Chinese places only offer Cantonese or Mandarin, or occasionally Szechuan. It was quite tasty. My wife liked her... More

My wife and I have lived all over the states and in Japan as well as other countries. I love Oriental cuisine, and its hard to find one to suite my pallet. I have driven 40 miles just for Oriental. We have eaten at numerous oriental restaurants in the Tucson area and none of them compare to the Mandrain Grill.... More

I stopped in for a very early dinner and was waited on immediately. The staff was eating their dinner before the rush! I ordered the dinner special so the hot and hearty egg drop soup arrive immediately.

If you had asked me about 5 years ago, I would have said that Mandarin Grill was a great place for Chinese food in Tucson. But, sadly, that is no longer the case. The food is no longer the flavorful treat it once was. The food is not terrible, just not special anymore. For the price, it is no longer... More

The locals either like or love it. Not the best Chinese food, but not bad. I was surprised how bountiful the war wonton soup was. Never seen this soup with soooo much ingredients.

I've been coming here for about 20 years, so it must be good :) Great food, hearty portions at very reasonable prices -- especially their lunch specials! Extensive menu with all of your favorite Chinese dishes. I especially like their Mongolian Chicken.
