Excellent Chinese buffet with some Canadian selections and salad bar. Very friendly and competent staff. Good service. It was an extra nice touch to see the Managing Partner, Barry Yeung, make the rounds visiting the guests' tables

The Mandarin is an excellent all you can eat Chinese restaurant. The different dishes are constantly refreshed. A perfect opportunity to try various Chinese dishes without having to order on meal and not be satisfied. You certainly get your fill here!

The food is always tasty, spoiled for choice. The stations are kept fresh and refilled often. The new decor is very welcoming.The drinks are a little overpriced but over-all the price is ok.

We have had several family dinners here and were always more than satisfied. Great food, service, atmosphere, and well, the price is manageable.

The service was good but there was flies flying all around my food! Hardly went to get new plates of food fearing the flies would hover over my current food! When I had told my hostess she and another waiter acted surprise, said they haven't seen any around, I had a few flies at my table at the same time!
