I love the buffet eating as you get to pick what and how much of anything you see. They truly have a wide selection available.

This restaurant has a great selection of both Chinese and Canadian meals. Some traditional Chinese dishes like crab cream cheese wantons are missing though. There are several nice and quiet dining areas. Staff is very kind and attentive. Sometimes hard to catch though. Also I noticed that some women filling the buffet are not communicating in English very well. Not... More

I'm not a big fan of Chinese food, I'm more of a Japanese kind of person. With that said, i do however enjoy this restaurant. It always has a great selection of food, regardless of when you happen to visit. The crab leg special is one of my favorite meals they serve here. I also enjoy sushi.

We have eaten at several Mandarins and they are all very good buffets. There is a wide variety of food - if you don't like Chinese there are American alternates. The salad bar is excellent. On our last visit to this one we noticed that they had added cotton candy - a big hit with the youngsters. There is also... More

As buffet restaurants go, this is probably one of the best anywhere. They have perfected the art of hospitality. As for the food, they do a pretty good job, always introducing new dishes. In fact, they are getting wild and crazy lately with dessert items like cotton candy. I broke one of my own rules during this visit and I... More

Terrific food--everything you can imagine and more. Quality for a buffet was fabulous. Unbelievable dessert bar! Fast, friendly service and restrooms very nice, too. Nice place to meet with family, friends or even small parties.

It was many years ago that we went to Canada for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had great friends in Niagara Falls that took us to Mandarin's for dinner once. The year was 1987. They even had lobster on the buffet and we were so impressed. I do not remember the price which our friends took care of that. I... More
