While the selection is great and the salads are above-par, the hot dishes were a disappointment. I actually witnessed an employee pour hot water into a dish and stir it up to make it look fresh even though it had previously congealed. With regards to the service, I recognize how they want to portray a welcoming atmosphere, but hearing "welcome to Mandarin" 50 times while walking to my table is quite annoying. With respect to the management, the gentleman who manages the restaurant is extremely good at yelling and belittling the employees in public, but terrible with the guests. This restaurant has potential, but it is far from achieving it at this point.
