I was here for lunch with a friend. We were seated right away and the buffet set up was explained to us. Our waitress was very helpful and efficient along with a sense of humor. I believe her name was Leone? I had not been to a Mandarin in years and was really looking forward to it. While there were... More

Really good food. The place was really busy so we had to wait for a table. There were lots of people jammed in the dining room but it was still ok. The good news about being busy is the food was well stocked and fresh. There was something for every taste. The only downfall was the price.

When it first opened, it was new, fresh and exciting. Now it is older, tired and boring. The main buffet does not change much at all. There is nothing on the menu that would cause you to say "Let's go there!". If you want an overpriced Chinese buffet, go for it.

The food is horrible. Chewy beef and too much garlic in the chop suey. Singapore noodles dry and chicken used instead of pork. Yuk! Not much of a select of desserts. The cost may be lower than the Golden Gate, but there food is much more tastier!

I visit here about 3 times a year and each time I say I won't be back because for the price you pay for dinner you may as well eat at the keg and leave with a satisfied stomach instead of bloated cuz you can eat all you want. If you like to eat lots this place is for you.... More

It was our first time dined in this restaurant last Sunday. The food was very fresh. There were so many selections. The staff was very friendly and very attentive. For sure we will go back regularly.
