With a kitchen full of Chinese chefs via Hong Kong and San Francisco, Mandarin’s woks fire up some of Utah’s best Chinese fare you’ll fine. The menu is as extensive as this Bountiful restaurant is beautiful. Start with char shu, pot stickers and Singapore noodles before jumping into more exotic eats like Nanking chicken, lychee scallops, Szechwan catfish and eggplant with garlic sauce. Mandarin has a full wine, beer and spirits selection (a rarity in Bountiful), and you can even sip hot and cold sake here. OK, the desserts might not be so authentically Chinese, but who’s to resist raspberry vanilla-bean crème brulée? Mandarin doesn’t take reservations, except for large groups, although you can call ahead to be put on a waiting list. Certainly, Mandarin is Utah’s only “special occasion” Chinese restaurant.
