The Mandalay, Honolulu

February 2, 2008

On January 30, 2008, Linda, Galen and I went to The Mandalay in downtown Honolulu for a dim sum lunch. This two-year-old modern restaurant serves dim sum during the day and has a Chinese menu in the evening. There are no trolleys; one fills out a form checking off which dishes one wants from a selection of about 25 shown on a plastic photo menu.  The service is fast and efficient. A bit more spaced out delivery might have been better. The quality was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

    The pictures make the dishes quite appetizing. But for Linda who had lived in Hong Kong and no doubt visited the dining room at City Hall, the absence of trolleys with the multitude of dishes, ordering from a menu must have made the dim sum experience less than authentic. Like listening to a Palestrina piece played on a ukelele?
