The best part about eating Chinese food is the confidence that comes when more than one billion people tacitly support your culinary decision; the second-best part is that their bakers can see the future. Foresee a tasty destiny with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Chinese cuisine, sushi, and drinks at Mandarin.

Mandarin's culinary artisans stir-fry, steam, and slice ingredients into an extensive menagerie of traditional Chinese dishes and fresh sushi. The menu, available for dining in, or folding into an origami phoenix, unfurls a huge selection of appetizers ($1.70–$8) and soups ($1.50+), gifting diners ample opportunity to whet their appetites. In the walnut chicken ($10), stir-fried slices of chicken breast, shoots of bamboo, and water chestnuts mingle merrily within a delicate brown sauce before joining up with hand-glazed walnuts and a choice of fried or steamed rice and an egg roll or egg drop soup. Mandarin's sushi maestros orchestrate taste-bud tantalizers such as the Red Devil roll—red-snapper tempura with a spicy sauce and shredded crab on top ($12.30 for 8 pieces). For filling and familiar dinner fare, choose from a variety of Chinese comfort foods ($7.20+), or vegetable selections ($8.50+) served with rice that's been steamed, fried, or given a severe talking-to.

Mandarin's smiling staff serves a selection of foreign and domestic beer, and hot or cold sake, as well as red, white, and plum wine. For an alcohol-free warm-up, diners can enjoy sips of a hot oolong tea ($1.10) while wearing every sweat suit they own.

Prices listed on website may vary slightly from the most up-to-date menu inside the restaurant.

Mandarin

Though the chefs at Mandarin revere classically prepared Chinese dishes, they aren’t afraid to add a dash of inventive flair with internationally inspired twists. Hawaiian-style preparations of sweet-and-sour chicken join other Chinese comfort food, such as Chinese- or Singapore-style me fen, a mix of thin rice noodles with vegetables and meats such as pork and beef. Rice and noodle bowls from the Tour of Asia menu cull flavors from Osaka, Seoul, and Hong Kong, and traditional Chinese dishes such as chicken with snow peas and sesame beef round out the menu. Staffers pour martinis into curvy-stemmed glasses or help guests pair wines amid the dining room's mandarin-orange walls, bamboo placemats, and geisha statuettes.
