Old Mandarin Islamic is an old-school kind of place … as in centuries-old. It’s one of the only places in the Bay Area that serves authentic northern Chinese hot pot. For those of you who haven’t experienced a Chinese hot pot dinner, it involves dipping thinly-sliced meats and vegetables (we recommend Old Mandarin’s lamb) into hot oil and then dousing the quickly-cooked meat with a very complex, very spicy sauce concoction. It’s amazing and pretty much unlike anything you’ve ever had. It’s even Chowhound-approved.
Also, for you non-Muslims hanging out in the Outer Sunset, they are BYOB.
