The staff was great from the front door to the table service. Everybody did their best, even if it was a busy time.

Good variety of food, the salmon was perfect. On the negative side, there were a few of the dishes that seemed to be a little overcooked.

The service was exceptional. Great experience food was what is expected. Fresh, hot and multiple choices. The service the best I've seen. Restaurant owners should go there to see what there staff is doing wrong. Hot towel at the beginning and the end. Step after step the service was on point. We own a restaurant and I couldn't believe how... More

Its a buffet. Really like the selection but 1/2 the items were dry meat, and not looking so fresh. The kids(teens) didnt finish off their first plate, and said "I dont really feel hungry anymore". They will eat anything but didnt really enjoy their meal tonight. I did enjoy the soups, but the salads had been out their to long.

Family dinner here on a Saturday evening. It was good. Not as many food choices as the one here in Niagara Falls but the food had better flavor here and the staff was nicer. I think we will be going to this one instead.

I have been to Mandarin several times, and at this point I feel no reason to return, having given it a fair shake. Quite a few of their dishes are fried, or battered and fried, I don't find the prices competitive, and the vegetarian options are limited. There are much better buffets.

We enjoyed lots of protein : prime rib, grilled chicken, shrimp, and steak. Dessert involved lemon meringue pie and cheesecake topped off with chocolate chip cookies & ice cream. Servers are extremely attentive. If you arrive early it's not as busy. We left feeling very full.
