Members of our party had different preferences for their menu choices, and Mandarin offers such a wide selection of dishes that everyone found more than enough choices to satisfy their desires. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. The service was excellent.

Love the Mandarin restaurants. You always know what to expect. There is so much to chose from that no one will go hungry no matter how finicky they are. The seafood is fresh, the meat tender, the salads crisp and the deserts decadent. I love the hot towel at the end of the meal...it's a small comfort that more restaurants... More

The restaurant is clean and the food is very good. I don't have any complaints. Come hungry! There is lots of variety to... More

A vast array of food from so many different international cuisines. The food is regularly refilled so remains hot and not over handled by diners. There is choice for every taste. The waiters are super friendly and great with large groups. It isnt the cheapest place to eat but if you have a healthy appetite you will get your money's... More

The restaurant is buffet style, serving a wide variety of food (not just Chinese). The waiters and waitresses are always extremely friendly, as are the greeters. Friday and Saturday nights are particularly busy, with a wait time of about twenty minutes or so. That, and on those nights, it is quite expensive. Would recommend coming here for lunch on a... More

I'm not terribly fond of this type of restaurant but it was a family once a year affair. I was actually quite surprised at the many choices from fresh veggies to fish and meat and all the other asian dishes one would expect. I must say I did enjoy everything I tried, including a yummy creme caramel for dessert.

Going to mandarin has been part of my family's weekly schedule. Thanks to Carolyn Xavier (senior managing partner) our meals are always tasty and enjoyable. The other partners should learn from her service management.

We've been to the Barrie Mandarin a few times over the years. It is always good or even great. I like the fish. I wish there were more vegetable dishes.
