The food was good here with generous portions and typical flavor. The service was also very good. We had lunch and we were quickly seated and the service was good. The price was average for Tahiti.

We felt a taste is like a French Chinese.
However , as a cuisine is cooked by soy-source,
we were satisfied it,also we enjoyed a restaurant
live music.

I was traveling with a Chinese American and a vegetarian so we decided on Le Mandarin for our last dinner in French Polynesia The restaurant looks like an old-time traditional Chinese restaurant. It even has entertainment (1950s lounge singers) on Friday and Saturday nights. The food was excellent. We had an aubergine stuffed with a slice of fish which was excellent, a curry shrimp what was nice but not unusual and mixed vegetables that were crispy enough for me and cooked enough for my Chinese friend. When our veggie companion asked about the contents of a dish in which she was interested, the server offered to make it with whatever vegetables she wanted. Being vegetarian had been very difficult in Papeete.
Like most of the food in Papeete, the meal was expensive but we felt we got our monies worth and went to the airport knowing that we would not be concerned by whatever our airline chose to serve – or not serve.
Recommended for a special occasion,

• Located in the heart of Papeete. Typical traditional Chinese interior. There is life music in the evening (very good singer!)
• I often eat Chinese food, and I must say this is one Chinese restaurant which is on the top of my favourites! All dishes are excellent. In particular the suckling pig was top, but alos fried rice etc were all outstandingly good
• Staff is very friendly and efficient
• Conclusion: great choice for a nice dinner!
