So far, this is the best chinese restaurant we have been to in TampaBay. The portions are huge, and they are served with egg roll AND soup of your choice. Everyone there is really friendly and helpful.

I won't review the food as it is clear from the other reviews that this place is (1) good (2) authentic

I was shocked to read NO ICED TEA, NO SALADS, NO DAIRY -- HUH? review - WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ANYWAY? Would you go to a steak house and ask for chinese noodles? Do you go to a sushibar and ask for grilled lamb chops? Do you go to an italian restaurant and ask for hot dogs?

I mean REALLY? how obvious is that? - if you expect to go to a real chinese restaurant and ask for baked potatoes or cottage cheese instead of your rice there's something seriously wrong with YOU, not the restaurant - and most good chinese restaurants I've been to don't carry raspberry flavoured ice tea either - that's an insult to their culture... where RICE and TEA are STAPLE FOODS

They had never heard of raspberry iced tea; in fact, had no iced tea at all. I didn't want rice; asked what I could have in place of rice. cottage cheese (NO), baked potato (NO); waiter was smirking by this time. I felt like I was in a foreign country. No dairy products? No salads? How do they stay alive? Instead, he brought me veggies which I would've gotten anyway so I'm thinking we'll probably never go back there. Most of us like a balanced diet, right?

Pros: huge tables with handy turntable thing in the center

Cons: no tea, no salads, no dairy products. what gives??

It is always nice to eat at the Ivory. The food is good. They have a huge menu with a lot of choices. The service was great, and the food always comes out hot! This place is cheap, and if you look in the paper you can find coupons. I always enjoy a meal at the Ivory.

I would definitely recommend this place. We were impressed. The staff was very friendly as well as attentive to our needs.

They had no problem following my wife's instructions for my daughters meal. They got it right.

I had the Garlic Chicken while my wife had the Szechuan Chicken and they were both very good to say the least. With every bite I took, I kept saying to my wife, Damn...This is really good.

We also had the Steamed Dumplings and they were also enjoyable.

Prices were very affordable to say the least. Their lunch menu is a bargain.

This is how I would rate them on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being downright lousy and 10 being excellent.

The Food was an 8.75
Service was a 10.
Price was a 10.
Atmosphere was an 8.25

It is hard to find good Chinese food in the Tampa Bay area although I think we found it.

We live in St Pete and the restaurant is in Dunedin although we will definitely make the drive and go back and try other items on the menu. I have a feeling they have a lot more excellent dishes.

Enjoy.

Cons: None to speak of.

I have tried Chinese food from hundreds places in Florida and many States in this country. Ivory Bistro is the most outstanding Chinese restaurant among all. I sometimes ask for the Chinese menu to try the authentic authentic dishes like the ones served in China. Pipa tofu (soft tofu mixed with seafood and topped with brown sauce) is my favorite. Shrimp and Scallop in ginger sauce is also recommended. Though some dishes may be too exotic for my family and me but it is fun to read that menu.

I have never seen any Chinese restaurants with this friendly service before. Ivory's employees always serve you with Big smiling face :) Everyone really enjoys working and servicing you.

Don't just believe me until you yourself experience it!

I vote this restaurant the BEST of the BEST

Pros: Authentic dishes (Chinese menu) Fancy & creative dishes (regular menu)

Cons: Too many menu choices

This is the best Chinese food anywhere, not only in the Tampa Bay area. Service is fantastic! The only thing that could make the experience more enjoyable would be if they served brown rice as a substitute for the regular white rice.

Ivory's is the best Chinese restaurant's in the Tampa Bay area. After moving to Florida from New York five years ago, we have tried to find authentic "New York Style" Chinese cuisine. There have been many disappointments, but Ivory's never disappoints! They have the old Chinese favorites plus many wonderful specialities. Try the Red Snapper in their special sauce -it is outstanding! The vegetables, seafood, meat, are always fresh and of the highest quality. The owners and staff are always willing to please and make you feel right at home.

The term "Bistro" probably doesn't cross your mind when entering this lovely place but... You will be pleased by the enormous attention to customer happiness and the friendliness you encounter throughout your experience here. The decor is light but tasteful, with many touches of "Chinese flavor" from the large fish tank with very exotic creatures to the background music. By no means is it overly done nor is it so fancy, you feel like you are underdressed. If you closed your eyes, you might just think you are someplace very far to the east.

The staff is amazing. They are very well groomed, courteous and with great attention to detail.
There is a wide variety of food choices; from the most basic "americanized chinese" to the more intricate and carefully prepared offerings. The portions are larger than one would expect and be prepared to take a doggie bag with you. It is an added bonus to be able to enjoy the Ivory cuisine the next day with your doggie bag of goodies. You get a lot of food for the money.

Do they get busy? You betcha. This restaurant is worth the wait. I have been there at the height of weekend activity to the quieter times during the week and the service and level of quality is never compromised. One very nice thing is that even on busy nights, they never make you feel like you are being rushed out the door. Take out is another choice and the wait is minimal. Bring your goodies to the nearby beach and have a picnic!

I for one, am hesitant to try new places for fear it will be money wasted. Word of mouth on this place was all it took to get me in there and I am hooked.

You do not arrive here simply to "eat" but to enjoy a wonderful meal, in terrific surroundings and be treated like you are the only customer there.

Whether you are nearby or all the way across the bay, The Ivory Mandarin Bistro is well worth the trip.

I love this restaurant. They don't only have a regular menu which has lots of variety to choose from , but they also have authentic chinese food from another menu.

"I don't know" is the most fantastic specialty I love. It is like a Chicken with Chinese peanut sauce. The other one I always order is "Macademia Seafood." I believe this unique dish is only served at this place. One of my friends said Roast Duck at Ivory is the most flavorful. I have never tried it because I don't eat duck. Next time, I may try a piece and tell you how it is.

You did a fantabulous job.

I used to come to this place when it was Macro Polo restaurant. After it was changed to buffets, I stopped coming. I had looked around for the good Chinese place for 10 years but I couldn't find it. Until I heard from my close friend that this place was changed again to Ivory Mandarin Bistro which is clean, friendly, and delicious. I tried it last year and I love it. Ivory is now the top list of my Chinese restaurant. I have recommended it for everyone; especially anyone coming with wheel chair. The service persons are very helpful and attentive.

IVORY MANDARIN BISTRO is deserved to be one of the Best Chinese restaurant. I like the Authentic Chinese Menu providing Steamed Fish, Pipa tofu, Clam Black Bean Sauce, and Dungenese Crab. It is prompt smiling service with very friendly people. It is really clean and peaceful, especially music is so relaxing. Well, the price is unbeatable. I will reccommend all of my freinds.

A group of us went to check out Ivory, and we did ask for both menus. While waiting for our meal of about 11 dishes we made the observation of how it looked so old and outdated for only being 2 years old. Finally our food arrived and the feast was on, by the end we had mixed reviews being mostly okay, a bit salty, and heavy use msg, We did enoy the chinese brocoli and tofu.

At first, I was not too impressed by the menu. Then I looked over to the large table of Chinese patrons and realized they have 'the other menu'. It is a common thing in more authenic Chinese restaurant that they have a menu for regular Americans, and another for Chinese patrons. This special menu contains authentic Chinese dishes, and the ones I picked were very well prepared. Particularly the PeiPa Tofu, a dish that requires a certain level of skill to make, is highly recommended.

Don't be fooled by the decor, which is somewhat outdated. Ask for the Chinese menu and ask the server to recommend what's fresh today.
