I have been to this restaurant a few times but only because others in my party wanted to go. I find the place over crowded with chairs bumped into each other. How this is not a fire trap I do not know.

Although the mainstay of this restaurant is to be oriental, they have such a huge variety of food - it's unbelievable! I had to wait 45 minutes for a table, as I did not make a reservation, but the wait was so worth it. Because of the huge volume of business they do, the food could honestly not be any... More

The food was fresh, tasty and there was plenty to choose from. The service is outstanding and the waiters/waitresses are very friendly. They also have a variety of cocktails to choose from which are also delicious!

We go to the Barrie Mandarin restaurant for the majority of our family events because it offers dependable quality food with excellent service. Food and service has been equally good for Dinner and Lunch, and addresses the range of appetites and dietary constraints of our family (20 years of age young adults to 79 year-old Mother).

I have been once to the Mandarin and will not be going back. The buffet did offer a lot of selection but the food was terrible. I would definitely not recommend it.
