Welcome to Sweet Mandarin Sauces. Our sauces have been made without gluten, No MSG and no artificial colourings and it is perfect for the Gluten Free market. They are also vegan accredited. There are three flavours – barbecue, sweet chilli and sweet & sour. The recipes for these sauce have been passed down from generation to generation. ‘A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step’. We are delighted that you are joining us on our journey today. Our family’s history spans a hundred years has been a turbulent one – we have endured a murder, utter poverty and the isolation of being an immigrant family. But food has been our lifeline which has pulled each generation through and we are the fourth generation to make a living from food and the third generation of women restaurateurs to make and sell these sauces. Let me introduce you to our family. My grandmother, Lily Kwok set up her restaurant even before Chinatown and served these wonderful sauces in Manchester, winning over the hearts of a nation. To date we still serve her sauces at Sweet Mandarin and our customers love them and keep asking for more. In actual fact we have to thank the customers for asking us to bottle these sauces. In particular we thank John who comes in for a takeaway every Friday night and Jim from Refinery who has helped us realise this dream by creating these beautiful labels. Our biggest fan is Gordon Ramsay who crowned us the Best Local Chinese Restaurant on his F Word Show beating 10,000 restaurants for this amazing title.
