With a kitchen full of Chinese chefs via Hong Kong and San Francisco, Mandarin fires up some of Utah’s best Chinese food. 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 fare like Nanking chicken, lychee scallops, Sichuan 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 creme brulee? Mandarin takes great care in ensuring its food is creative and consistently delicious.
