Whatever Happened to the Mandarin Restaurant?

Russ Devlin | Mar 4, 2004 09:14 AM

I went to school in Cambridge, and always enjoyed an unassuming Central Square restaurant called the Mandarin Chinese restaurant on Mass Ave. It wasn't fancy, but cheap Chinese food never tasted so good. Over the years, the University Park at MIT development displaced it, and it disappeared.

Does anyone know what happened to these people? Do they have another restaurant? I've looked for years, and I've never found a hot and sour soup or Szechuan spicy chicken that measured up to theirs. If it's out there, I'll drive a long way to have that food again.
