I've been going here for at least 15 years. This afternoon I went with someone who has been there also. When we went to pay, the owner came running up to the cashier to say we hadn't left a tip. The bill was $15.75. All we had were larger bills. A 15% tip would have been $3.20. Tips are for service, here the carts come around and the patrons pick what they want. Gave her a five dollar bill. Which she took without asking if we wanted change back. We were a little shocked. We're not out of town tourists. Just beware, and bring small bills to avoid a hefty 30% tip.

We ordered a fried dim sum appetizer not described that included three fried wonton, three tiny spring rolls and three sticks of some unidentifiable meat that none of us thought was dimsum. My winter melon soup with meat was excellent. But the three dishes we ordered, a beef with garlic sauce, sizzling scallops and some fried bean curd were average, lots of sauce and oil, scallops not very cooked, bean curd mealy. And they brought it all out before we had finished the appetizers. Timing is not their thing. Add three Tsing Taos, and the bill came to $100 including tip. Really. I would look for the value restaurants, they are down there with better food.

Thanks to Jury Duty, I've eaten a lot of delicious cheap lunches here. Went with friends for dinner last night. We loved it. Really fresh food, beautifully prepared with very reasonable prices. We had a very patient waiter who recommended sauces and explained vegetable names. Overall, a great time.

Mandarin Court is always a winner. Been there a number of times but had not had the opportunity in a couple of years. Still a great value, high quality food, a lot to choose from and (despite what other have written) pretty good service overall, even on a crowded Sunday.

I love the dimsum here and the service is pretty good. the decor could use an updating but all in all it's a great place for a bite and you get to order off the old fashioned carts. For those of you who don't know you can order off the menu, it is tucked behind your napkin dispenser all you have to do is flag down one of the dozen guys in green vests tell them what you want and they bring it. Super simple, the ladies pushing the cart don't speak much english so don't try to order from them they just hand out the prepared dishes and tick off what you ordered on the sheet. I've always found the waiters to be attentive here so if you are having a hard time ordering off the menu you aren't trying hard enough.

I will admit it was my first trip in a long time to a Dim Sum house... Only the ladies with the carts stopped at our table... Not one waiter! Never had the chance to order from the menu, tried asking, to no avail... Only drink we received was one pot of tea, for 6 people. We wanted rice and a few dishes off the menu, never had that chance. We were around an hour. Food quality and value were great! Please wait on my table next time, and there will be a next time:)

Good Chinese food, good value. Good for larger groups. Not a place to take a date.
