A word from Mulan Restaurant
Mulan restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of Queens Crossing at Main Street and 39th Avenue in downtown Flushing. The upscale modern Asian restaurant is elegantly decorated to fit the surrounding atmosphere. Mulan features modern Asian decor, a square waterfall, elevated seating and leathered booths, all of which are complimented by the seductive quality of the traditional oriental motifs throughout the restaurant. See-through curtains are hung over the windows, which with the addition of warm light create a romantic and pleasant dining experience. Within the dining area dramatic shifts of light create an air of sophistication among waterfall walls, hardwood flooring and striking walls of glass and wood complemented by an extensive 200-bottle wine cellar.

  • Nicest Place in Flushing

    The ambience is hands down the best in Flushing. But also, the priciest. Food is decent with good service. I would recommend this place only to entertain business clients or out of towners.

  • Best Upscale Authentic Chinese

    Dined on 5/10/2014
    I've been to many Chinese restaurants in New York City and there's no shortage of good and great ones. In the past I've found a couple of upscale Chinese restaurants, but the food was unfortunately just above average. Mulan is unique in that it is the only upscale Chinese I've found in the 5 boroughs that has truly fantastic food. And to make matters even better, the price is very reasonable for a place with food of this quality ($20-30 per plate). I have never found a bad plate in almost a dozen visits. If I had to recommend one item, it would be the Moroccan Spiced Rack of Lamb. Best lamb I've ever tasted. The only downside to this place is that it's all the way out in Flushing.

    Came here with my mother in law, my husband and brother in law for lunch. We had the Business lunch, ordered salads, pumpkin soup and each an entree, shrimp with egg (so good and soft), fish fillet (very good), brisket (more like tendons), and stirfry beef (beef was very tender) All in all, a wonderful meal, great prices, great taste/textures and a fairly large amount.

    Mulan has an ever changing menu, there are a few favorites you can count on being on the menu, and new, innovative dishes that appear seasonally. The new pork neck meat was a wonderful, sliced roast pork treat, the scallops one of our favorites, always fantastic. The shrimp with walnuts was outstanding, you may have had it somewhere else, or everywhere else, but here, it's the best. The garlic eggplant, however, was the best ever. You haven't had eggplant until you've bitten into the creamy, silken texture with amazing sauce. The piano player made dinner a concert/dinner event. He's great. We will go back whenever we can.

Mulan was OUTSTANDING! the food was delicious, everything was perfect, the portions were great and we ate so much and had lots to take home! GREAT place, would highly recommend!

    We visited them not to often because the price. But the quality of food is good. Tasty and clean. We love the dimsum too. But we learned something. We visited them and ordered dumpling (no crab). They sent the one with crab because $8 different. Waiter also charged us for the expensive one even we ordered the cheap one (no crab). When we asked the waiter, he said you ate everything already.....We filled tricked by waiter. The good thing is my brother (who has crab allergy) did not visit with us. Otherwise, they will have big trouble by doing that.

    What should have been a pleasant dining experience ended badly when we arrived at their parking garage and was charged for going a few minutes over 3 hrs. Not a problem but the1st time I came here, my son parked at the muni parking lot but the manager told us parking is free at the basement of the bldg. I came back 2 more times before tonite (not thru open table) and we parked in their bsmt. with no problem. The point is Mulan does not advise customers about this time limit. There are no signs in the garage or in Mulan about this. When I went back to complain, the remaining staff simply kept talking to each other in Chinese pretty much ignoring my complaint. You bet this lousy treatment has made me decide never to go there aga

    It's very modern and difference from traditional Chinese Restaurant. Sitting is comfortable; but services wasn't great. Food are nicely displayed; but took a longer time for serving after we placed our order. Taste of food are nothing out of ordinary. Dessert menu look greats but didn't taste good at all. I will say, I don't regret to try it, but doesn't worth the second visit. All you paid for just the sitting environment.

    It is unusual to find a Chinese restaurant that is not noise in New York City. I picked Mulan because it is always quiet and you can talk to friends without screaming to each other. The decoration is nice in this restaurant. Food is OK. I am sure you can find better Chinese food in Flushing since this area filled with Many Chinese restaurant. Service is good. It can be better if they have more people working there. But it is good value for the environment and food.

    The food is all right. I expected better since this place is very pricey. I have dinned in Marea and Aureole in Manhattan, Mulan can't live up to that standard. From the plate decoration, taste, and the ingredience are just average. I took my husband to celebrate his birthday, and I requested booth seating and I had made sure that there was no wedding that night. To our surprise, there were two weddings going on and we had be seated in a large room with many tables and share the same room with other dinners. The receptionist desk was hidden at the corner and we were so confused as to where to go. It's okay experience but wouldn't try there again. Btw, we ordered most expensive and popular dishes from the menu, the food was just okay.

    Dining here is always pleasurable. The menu is varied and different from typical high-end Chinese restaurants.The decor and ambience is extraordinary. The "water curtains" enclosing a section of the restaurant is unique and appealing. Service is efficient, except the servers were too fast in carrying away the used plates that we felt we were being rushed, even though it was not the case. My sister and I loved the sea bass wrapped in bamboo leaves, also the side pickled veggies that came with it. My son took the $35 price fixe dinner again and he was as satisfied as ever with every item served. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem. Btw, parking is in the basement of the bldg, enter at 38th St., free with validated receipt.

    The noise from nearby karaoke rooms as well as the main dining section put my experience @this place to a very disappointed night. It is to my opinion not suitable to intimate family/romantic gathering. We had a selection of about 10dishes and I found them above average. I hope other dishes on offer are better as they did have some nice interior decorations to make it appear up market.

    This place is very beautiful-great for a romatic date; however the food was ok. Certain things were better then others but overall food was not as flavorful as I was expecting. Also they had a wine listed as $44 a bottle and when we tried to order it they told us that was the worng price and it was actually $55 a bottle. I found that very sketchy. If you have it listed you should honor it. The server was helpful and he helped us steer clear of the really awful dishes. We were a party of 5 and we all ordered dinner at the same time but for some reason everyone else got thier food and ate and finished and I was still waiting for my food, and the manager did nothing about it. He should have at least comped my meal! Also they are VERY pricey.

    This place is great for special occasions. The decor is very, very, very modern and classy. It is definitely not a typical Chinese restaurant that you usually go to, such as Jade Asian. They have rather large tables to accommodate large parties. There are several attentive and friendly staff members serving each table. However, one downfall is that their family-style dishes are in smaller portions than expeceted. Plus, the prices are on the expensize side but the delicious food outweighed the higher pricing in my opinion. I highly recommend the MULAN DRY-AGE RIB EYE. It was the best dish of the night. Cooked in medium temperature. Delicious inside and out!! Overall, our night went very well! My birthday celebration with fami
