I used to love their buffets however never again. Our server was crazy and wanted to sell us alcoholic drinks and to purchase their free drink glass. We just wanted water with our dinner which we never received. I did not even leave a tip as the service was awful. Only those that got alcohol and a free beverage glass... More

Went here for lunch with friends. The buffet is the standard Mandarin buffet - lots of items all well prepared and presented. The serving dishes were always being replenished so the food was hot and freshly prepared. There really is something for everyone. Nothing special about this Mandarin that distinguishes it from others. It is Chinese style food adapted to... More

Production food that shows little evidence of imagination. The chicken balls are dry and exhibit little flavor and they are probably the nest thing on the menu. The salad bar and deserts are the only reason to go here.

Although having eaten at the Mandarin in Burlington many times, I have never reviewed this restaurant before. Why? Well i realized we have been taking it for granted. it was the place to go when when you didn't have time to cook, when no one knew what they wanted to eat and when life is to busy. Why am I...

The Mandarin is a good buffet...with a wide variety of items...recommended you make reservations for dinner because after 6pm it is insane there. The service is always good and the desert variety is awesome....we always enjoy this buffet:-)

Took my 93 year old aunt there for her birthday with family. She made more trips to the food bar than the rest of us! I was there before and there were great raw oysters but not this time. The prime rib was tough according to three at my table that tried it. The BBQ spare ribs, however, were amazing!... More

This restaurant caters for all ages , all tastes & can be busy.. We visit whenever we are over from Scotland to visit family & friends. There is a wide variety of food especially seafood & we have found the staff to be very attentive & professional. The restaurant & toilets are always clean & tidy.
