I have been going to the Mandarin in Oshawa every two or three months for many years, and have never been disappointed.

Better than most Chinese style buffets many stations. Servers are friendly and very quick to meet their guests' request. Food is always fresh, well presented and overall, quite good.

I tend to stick with the Chinese buffet and salads. The... More

There are also lots of pushy seniors and camouflage wearing patrons fighting for food at the buffet. The level of service at the table was so/so. The warm cloth's distributed before and after the meal... More

This Mandarin is very customer service oriented. Staff checking to see that you are enjoying your meal, providing you with a warm cloth to wash your hands and generally a pleasant group. The food is constantly being replenished. The selectionsi are very good. Fresh, well presented food. Great place to meet friends and enjoy a meal.

When we were finished I was shocked to learn they did not accept debit and was directed to a debit machine which charged $1.75... More
