You can get Chinese food anywhere or you can go to Mandarin Gourmet and get Chinese Cuisine! The house special dishes are excellent. Make sure you try Cathy's Salad. The Hot and Sour soup is spicy and full of goodies as is the Sizziling Rice soup. Follow that up with the Mongolian Beef (this is the way it is supposed to taste) and one of the prawn dishes. The wait staff is just attentive enough without being pesky and willing to suggest dishes that you may like if asked. Trust them. For a special treat give the Peking Duck a try. You will be tempted to do take out but make your first experience a dine in for the best flavor experience. Not all food travels well so if ordering to go don't make the mistake of ordering something that is supposed to be servered crispy since the steamy packages may negate the work of the master cooks.

I went to Mandarin Gourmet Cupertino thinking I had found a great place for Chinese food. I ordered the Schezuan Shrimp and it was over $13 with tax. This was a takeout order. When I got back to my hotel I poured out the contents onto a large plate. There were so many water chestnuts that I couldn't believe it. I put all of the water chestnuts back into the takeout container and the water chestnuts filled the container more than half way. I was mad I was charged so much for that dish, it should have been called "Water Chestnuts with Very Few Shrimp". I will NEVER go back to this place again. My advice is if you want just shrimp or scallops in a dish then go to PF Chang. That's right, everytime I go there it is overcrowded but you sure get your moneys worth.

This is not your every day Chinese food restaurant. The food is high quality and very tasty. We almost always get take out food. If it were less expensive we would always choose this place for Chinese food.

PROS: great food
CONS: expensive

We love to get chinese take-out and mandarin gourmet is one of our favorites in the area. It's a bit expensive, but the seafood dishes are delicious. It's worth it!

I love this place. The food is just awesome. The ambience is good. The only cons are it is always crowded (because the food is good) and parking is a pain. The service is good and this is one of the best chinese restaurants in the bay area. Its convienient location makes it a short drive for office lunches.

This is by far our favorite chinese restaurant. The restaurant is very clean and is very well maintained. The wait staff are wonderful. The service is fast. They have the best hot and sour soup around and the shrimp in lobster sauce is heavenly - highly recommended. We've never yet had to make a reservation, although I'm sure on a weekend evening it will be packed with customers.

The Mandarin Gourmet has the best ambiance of any Chinese restaurant in the Bay Area, and the quality of the food matches! I recommend the Tangerine Beef as the best dish in the house, but the Chow Mein is also delicious. Service is fast yet very courteous. Truly a great restaurant, and a special experience!

PROS: Awesome food, great ambiance
CONS: None

Try the chicken with hot garlic sauce it is amazing

Pros: the food

.

I do like the food here though it is considered to be Americanized Chinese which is fine by me as long as it is tasteful.

I would come here occasionally but without my kids.
I really could do without their attitude. The decor is nice but the waiters could be better trained to be more friendly and not so grumpy. My guess is that the more money you seem to want to spend, the friendlier the waiter will be to you.

Pros: Tasty food all around and somewhat prompt basic service

Cons: Attitude of the waiters and no high chairs for kids ...

So I have been in search of a good Chinese place for quite some time. Mandarin Gourmet definitely has offered me something I like. I enjoyed every dish. I do wish the portions were a bit bigger but all in all it was good. Service was just soso, nothing special, but try the food its worth a visit

service was good. The dumplings were plump. We had the egg drop soup with was good. Also the General Tzao's chicken was also good, but the pieces were too tiny. I did not have room for dessert though.

Their dishes have been modified to cater to the American taste. If you see a Chinese customer inside, it's probably they had no say in the venue of choice. A bit pricey.

i love the food here, i crave it every week. the problem is, it's pretty expensive for the small portions they give you. the wait could be really long, sometimes an hour and a half wait. i think it's worth it though!

Mandarin Gourmet-Cupertino provides an elegant, oasis to dine on Chinese food. You and your friends can actually hold conversations without shouting above "restaurant din" so often found in today's eateries. The ingredients for the dishes are selected and prepared with care: General Tso's Chicken sports only cuts of white meat (no miscellaneous chicken parts) , the beef dishes provide tender slices, and the Peking Duck dish is done to perfection. The Prawns with Honey Walnuts have local reknown and is one of the best selling dishes.

I love this place! The honey walnut prawns are to die for, as are the minced chicken in lettuce cups with the plum sauce! I love when they come to your table to assemble some of the dishes, especially the ones that catch fire! The only problem is, there is no place in the Sacramento area that even comes close. I wish they would open one, say in Folsom? Ok, Sacramento at least!

Food is tasty but "Americanized". Service is your typical cold shoulder attitude. Not a kids friendly place.
