After visiting the Welland Canal, we were looking for dinner in the vicinity. The Mandarin was listed in our AAA book, so we gave it a try. It is by far the best Chinese buffet we've visited, but it is much more than just a Chinese buffet. There are roast meats, lots of traditional/non-Asian side dishes, and an extensive dessert... More

THE BEST Chinese food restaurant in St.Catharines! Great variety, very fresh food, great service! We love it every time! We were there for our wedding anniversary and they took a photo of us, and framed it for us as a gift for us! Nice surprise!

After reading all those positive reviews, my wife and I went for brunch on Sunday. We were warmly welcomed and after a short wait were seated in one of their 'rooms'. These serve to make one feel like u r in a more intimate setting. Very well done. Several staff , explained the buffet, brought us towels to freshen up... More

It's been a long time since I've been to a Mandarin, for one thing because I'm not a fan of buffets and another because I have this perception there's a lot of lower quality fried food. Wrong! I was there today with a group of 8 because my son's relatives were here visiting from Japan and I thought the buffet... More

Nice and clean, very friendlly staff, modern decore restaurant. Buffet style, all you can eat, great assortment of food some international cuisine. A little pricy for the ordinary person IMO $20-$30 plus per person

If you have no food allergies and love Chinese food, this is the place for you BUT...if you have Celiac disease or food allergies I do not recommend this restaurant. Be careful when ordering drinks, there is an extra tax they add on for alcoholic beverages. Great for buffet goers...but not for anyone with food allergies.

Amazing buffet, so many choices. Friendly efficient staff. Want to send a special shout out to our waitress Nikki, not only did she anticipate our every need, when my husband paid her he accidentally gave her an extra $20.00 and she returned to us with all his money so he could see what he did. We would never have known,... More

We live in Tonawanda, NY and a friend of mine turned me on to Mandarin about 20 years ago. My husband, the VERY picky eater, didn't want to go because he was sure there would be NOTHING he liked.....fast forward to our trip yesterday....everything was as delicious as ever and he was the one that was telling me I might...

My husband and l are usually at the St. Catharine's Mandarin weekly. We reside considerably south of St. Catharine's, but it is always our choice of restaurant when eating out. My preference is for seafood and salads, where my husband always has soup, salmon & rice. Another plus has been the excellent variety of so many delicious desserts. All patrons... More
