Depends where. In high end restaurants (read expensive) where foreigners go they can understand English. Other than that Mandarin would be better. Now a lot better as they are dependent on Mainland Chinese for a lot bulk of business and will try to respond in Mandarin even though they don't speak it well.
thanks for the prompt reply..

so i assume.. the rundown ones have more pushcarts and purely chinese menus than high end ones that have everything? guess i'll do point and ask technique and i'll be using mandarin then.
