Traditional Chinese Cuisine

The History of Mandarin

The history of Mandarin-a cult place for traditional Chinese cuisine in Milan-began in 1974: in that year King Sing Cheng, formerly chef of La Pagoda, opened the restaurant’s first location in Via Bellotti, Porta Venezia area.

Although the chef recently moved from China with his family, his son King Yan Sang is already ready to carry on Mandarin’s success by opening a new location.

The Family

In 1979, thanks to the commitment and passion of Yan Sang and his wife Carmela, Mandarin 2 was born in Milan (on Viale Piave), later moving to Via Garofalo, Città Studi area, in 1992.

Carmela (of Sicilian descent) and Yan Sang, with a rich background in Eastern culinary tradition, managed to create a unique combination of two very different cultures.


After two decades, the management of Mandarin 2 in Milano Città Studi is passed to his children, who grew up in the restaurant. The current owner, Chun Yi, supported by the incomparable Aunt Antonella, carries on the family tradition and leads a highly professional and courteous team, always attentive to customer needs.
