High energy dining spot House of Mandarin's New Menu takes your taste buds on a trip like no other
Asian food does what no other cuisine can do – gives you that pick-me-up with its flavours, colours, and texture. Enter the ever-welcoming doors of House Of Mandarin, and you will embark on a fine-dining journey that will leave you thoroughly pleased!
This upscale authentic Chinese restaurant with outlets in Bandra and Powai in Mumbai offers scrumptious Chinese delicacies using the finest ingredients coupled with great hospitality and ambience
The menu includes flavoursome soups, salads, hors d’oeuvres, dim sums, cheung fun, sushi, rice and noodles, hearty mains, and toothsome desserts.
What we recommend
Some of the must-have dishes are Edamame, Snow Peas and Green Beans Salad with Thai chili dressing, Turnip Cake with burnt garlic and scallions, and vegetables wrapped with iceberg lettuce, Chicken Coriander Dumplings, Crispy Broccoli Roll made with tempura fried broccoli and rolled with cream cheese and sriracha sauce, and mains such as Tenderloin in black pepper sauce, Glazed Lamb in chef's special sauce, Prawns in red chili oil and spring onion, and Steamed Whole Pomfret with ginger and scallions amongst others. Dessert lovers go for the Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Mousse with raspberry sorbet- it's rather decadent, honeyed and moist Darsaan with vanilla ice cream, or a breathtaking Sticky Toffee Pudding with caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream and candied ginger.
House Of Mandarin’s new elaborate drinks menu offers signature, old-fashioned, sparkling cocktails, and mocktails, along with non-alcoholic and aerated beverages such as fresh juices, teas, and more! You can start with a signature Mandarin Collins, a savoury cocktail infused with gin, vodka, tequila, old monk, triple sec, citrus mix, and cola; or a Yin and Yang, concocted with vodka, triple orange liqueur, and sweet lime. Other antidotes of choice also include Smokey Tengfei, generously blended with citrus vodka, dry vermouth, and homemade smoked gingerbread syrup, and Shoi-Ming, a smooth and exotic cocktail sealed with whiskey, crème de cocoa, crème de cassis, cranberries, and blueberries, amongst many more.
