Quality food in elegant surroundings is the hallmark of the Mandarin Gourmet dining experience.
The reason we're still here after 21 successful years in the highly competitive Palo Alto market is the consistent quality of our food offerings and the freshness of our ingredients. We take pride in our fresh seafood and meat, and we capitalize on seasonal produce. Our distinctive sauces are always prepared daily and our dishes are made when ordered, not kept warm on a steam table. We use no MSG, we reject all but the lightest of vegetable oils, and we steam our vegetables.
This year we plan to expand our inventive menu with some new selections, daily specials and more choices on the luncheon menu. New entrees will also court our vegetarian diners as well as diners who are watching their waistlines or just trying to stay healthy. And, of course, we will continue to offer our perennial favorites, like our prawns with honeyed walnuts, our salt and pepper prawns, and our minced shrimp or chicken in lettuce cups.
We promise to keep our restaurant as friendly to family outings and casual dining as we are for large gatherings, business meetings, special events and that romantic evening out.
We look forward to many more years in the heart of Palo Alto.
