Mandarine: Decent, Cheap Middle Eastern
Mandarin restaurant is labeled as a Lebanese restaurant, but their dishes are a bit more varied than that. The music matches the Labanese theme decorations.
There is a large picture menu out front which quite clearly shows off their dishes and the very cheap prices.
The food is good, but the service is not terribly noteworthy. It appears to be run by a large family, none of which are trained in service. Don't expect gracious or overly polite service.
Favorite Dish: The dishes are all rather large. The meats are seasoned and flavorful, but not terribly spicy or robust in seasoning. The dipping sauces that they give on the table will give you the spicy, sweet, tangy flavor that you want.
Mandarin, Lebanese rest.: Mandarin, Lebanese rest.
At the end of our last VT meeting (June 13) we (Dannie (irisbe), Caroline (b_caro), Conny (conny_bazen), Paul (goldenboy) and I) decided to have a little something to eat in the neighbourhood of the Central Station. There are all kind of restaurants, from the Belgian mosselhuis to Asian, African and South American.
We decided to try the Lebanese Mandarin. It's not a real restaurant where you eat a first course, a main course and a dessert and drink a good glass of wine. It's more like a snackbar with Middle Eastern snacks. Service is very quick and prices are really very cheap.
The restaurant is cozy, with typical Middle Eastern decoration and music. Only the belly-dancer was missing!!!
Favorite Dish: Houmous with falafel, pita, shaslik, chicken fillet.
Very good price/quality wise.
