Always busy, great variety for everyones tastes. Too much choice, always fresh. The constant greetings do get a little annoying, but everyone is cheerful

I always enjoy the food at the Mandarin no complaints, quick seating with reservations and table service is good. It can be quite loud when dining due to the amount of people in the restaurant, so if you are looking for a quiet dinner this is not the place.

The best Chinese food ever. We usually order take out because the sitting area is so cramped. You feel like you have other diners sitting on your lap.

Consistently good food and service in this buffet restaurant. A very wide variety. The only slight negative is that it can get pretty crowded so a booking is recommended.

If you need to service a very large gathering, this is the place to go. They have something for every taste all done well (not fabulous but good)
