Excellent "chinese" buffet

This restaurant was clean as a whistle, and everything looked exactly the same as the photos on Google. The vaulted ceiling was realistically painted like a clouded blue sky, and they had hung lovely butterflies of all shapes, sizes and colors that slowly turned on the air currents. There were... read more

This restaurant was clean as a whistle, and everything looked exactly the same as the photos on Google. The vaulted ceiling was realistically painted like a clouded blue sky, and they had hung lovely butterflies of all shapes, sizes and colors that slowly turned on the air currents.

Our first visit to the Mandarin with Canadian friends and what a fantastic experience this was. We arrived for lunch and found parking easy in the large car park. Reception invited us to show our ID to qualify for the over 65's discount. Everyone in our group had their ID's except for me. Now how could I possible look under... More

Mandarin always represents good, flavourful food, a massive selection and friendly service. Exceptional value should be enjoyed during the current dumpling festival in honour of the Chinese new year....especially Monday-Thursday lunch buffet.

We enjoy the Mandarin restaurant in Oshawa but have found it a little inconsistent in food quality and taste. Some days it is amazing and sometimes just ok. We prefer going when they have special occasions, like the Moon Festival and Kung Hei Fat Choy otherwise it's the same old, same old food selection. The staff are wonderful, very attentive... More

Typical buffet style Chinese restaurant. Food was ok but nothing special. Would go back if there was no other choice but certainly can find better. R.

Food ok, service is questionable. The young guy who answered my request for a take out was very inpatient and short with me. I would call it rude but perhaps it's just the cultural divide. I felt like I was bothering him.

It's the Mandarin so it's everything the Mandarin is known for. Food is really good but service was only so so.

I have been going to the Mandarin in Oshawa every two or three months for many years, and have never been disappointed. With apparently more than 150 dishes, there is something for every taste, whether you are a meat lover or vegetarian. The salad bar and soups and breads provide a variety of good appetizers. The hot entrée buffet has... More

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.

We have been to The Mandarin many times and it has remained our favourite place to eat. There is plenty of selection for anyone but I think the roast beef is a quite fatty and the turkey is dry (When these choices are there--depends on the time of year). I tend to stick with the Chinese buffet and salads. The... More
