Diner Reviews
  • "Manderin roots is the reinvention of Hunan Garden which has been a favorite of ours for years. Jarvis the owners son has taken over and put his signature on the menu. The dishes are fresh, upscale, visually pleasing and delicious. Jarvis ihas added some interesting cocktails and hired a pastry chef so from start to finish it's a fantastic meal. I highly recommend this restaurant I think it will become one of your favorites also."

  • "Personally and Professionally we have been patrons of Mandarin Roots (formerly Hunan Garden) for more than 10+ years. They's put a new twist on some of the traditional dishes and have definitley taken the entire menu to a whole new level. We have used Hunan Garden for the past three years for our Annual Chinese New Year's luncheon at work and I'm so very excited for next year's menu with them as Mandarin Roots. I'd give them 6 stars if I could! ~Rose (Alston & Bird LLP - Silicon Valley)"

  • "We were regulars at Hunan Garden (what Mandarin roots was before remodeling and renaming) for 15+ years and eagerly waited for the reopening. The father and son team did not disappoint at all! They kept some of their old hits but added an amazing list of tapas style appetizers. Kalbi beef taco was better than those from popular food trucks. Ahi Poke was seasoned perfectly and served with taro chips. Pork belly quesadilla was finger licking delicious! Corn and seaweed tempura is a must try as well. Leave room for dessert. Pineapple upside down cake was very yummy with a hint of coconut. Coffee ice-cream with waffle reminded me of my coffee runs at Blue Bottle. We pigged out but the check came out to be very reasonable."
