The Food is good and there is lots of it.A great variety also.If you like Buffets this is the place to go.This place is far to busy for my liking.People everywhere and no order at the Buffet.Staff were nice and the price is reasonable.

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!

Went there before and after renovation - it was great before and even better now - they added sushi-sushimi to their selection. Their selection is much better than Mandarin in Burlington or Toronto

I am not a fan of buffet to start with but my husband loves it! What I don't like is there is no ambiance. Everyone can listen your conversation. There is always a server in your way or at the dish you want to go... We are tripping over runny kids and big fat people with the purpose to empty... More

Went with friends for a special celebration. Staff was so accommodating; even bringing a cupcake with a candle and sparkler in it; and took a keepsake picture. The food was fresh and very tasty. Lots of variety of dishes to please every ones preference. The deserts were amazing in variety and taste. Even a candy floss machine for the kids... More

Our family was on a road trip and stopped here for lunch. As usual the variety is abundant. My daughter tried the sushi for the first time. I'm sure is was good. I'm personably not a fan. Her favourite was the torpedo shrimp. My wife loved the grilled steak. My son the pepperoni pizza. I enjoyed the peppered steak. The... More

Although we were at Mandarin on a Saturday evening, it was a very pleasant experience. We had to wait for about 30 minutes, but we enjoyed "people watching" (especially the children watching the fish) while we waited. Because we have mobility issues, the receptionist made sure to seat us at a spot closer to the servings tables. We really appreciated... More
