Mandarin Oak serves the Chinese food that feeds your soul. It also has cuisines such as Asian and Thai. They have plethora of selections from starters and mains including Soup, Dimsums, A La Carte, Mandarin Box, Big Oak Feast and wide range of desserts. We ordered Wok Tossed vegetables dumplings in Kung Pao Sauce and Burnt Garlic Rice, this hot and steamy combination speaks of Chinese comfort and nutrition and is perfect dish for 2. It is a simple meal where vegetables dumplings are rightly cooked and tossed in Kung Pao sauce which has two layers of flavor, one is from spices and the other one is from a balance via soy sauce, vinegar and sugar. This is served with steamed rice that is perfectly cooked tossed in butter burnt garlic which gives it a unique flavor. The second dish we ordered was a tongue catchy combo of Hakka Noodles with Exotic Veggies in Hunan Sauce, The veggies were nicely tossed in a medium spiced hunan sauce which complimented the Hakka Noodles really well. Taste was delicious, authentic and quality seemed to be good and they served enough portions for two. The packages were quite fancy which had us intrigued about its taste. The two dishes reached us warm and in good condition. If you’re looking for Chinese food to quench your cravings, Mandarin Oak should be a must place to visit or to order online.
