Love food, but getting pricey

Since we are not huge eaters The Mandarin is not good value anymore (even at the senior rate). Love the choice and quality but it might be a while before we are back as the price might lead us to forgo the buffet variety for a more traditional menu such as Swiss Chalet.

We visited with a group (about 20) and were not disappointed. The selection of both hot and cold items is impressive. We found the items to be fresh, well prepared and well presented. The premises were clean and staff were very attentive. If you like buffets, this is an excellent choice.

We were travelling with a group of 20 lacrosse players so a buffet was the perfect meal choice. We were given a private room so the team was able to talk amongst the tables without disturbing any other diners. The food choices were remarkable and I did not hear one complaint from anyone. Crab legs were enjoyed by many and... More

Great service, great food, clean atmosphere. We have a large family and were set up accordingly. I was a little upset of the price increase for Mother's day as this is already a pricey restaurant but very good.

This restaurant has so many delicious options! The supper menu is the best. Doesn't matter if I have one plate or 3 I'm sick everytime. Something in/on how they cook makes me so sick before I leave the restaurant. I go once a year or so but still everytime.

Once again the Mandarin chain lives up to the reputation. Went for dinner with twenty five participants. All thoroughly enjoyed the vast menu choices. There was no one who had any negative feedback. The staff were friendly and very efficient in clearing the area. Got most into the spirit with ordering the candy cane x-mass drink with the souvenir glass.... More

I visited the Blandarin for the last time on the 18th of July. The staff I must say is friendly, and the crab legs are pre-cut for easier cracking, but that is the extent of the positives for this restaurant. Of note, it has been roughly 8 months since I was there last, and on that occasion and the previous... More
