A nice change for lunch

We come here on average about once every couple of months for lunch. The service we've received has always been quick and curtious. We never make reservations and have never had to wait longer than 10 minutes, even when they are very busy. The food for the most part is very good, but there are... read more

Neither the food nor the service warranted a good review. Been to other Mandarins where the food was hotter. Everything here was lukewarm unless you got it new. Roast beef station had mashed potato and as I waited for more they scooped the new into the old. That is a food service No no. As for service we had 2... More

We love Chinese Food and have always thought this place is OK. We prefer a sit down vs a buffet style, but periodically will try the Mandarin. This time we found lots of quantity but little quality. If you like anything crispy, it is just not there. Its on the menu, but everything is soggy and not very tasty. The... More

I frequently visit this location and always receive amazing service from the staff here. The managers Wendy and Paul are so lovely and always say hello to me and make me feel very welcomed when I visit. I always have lovely food, full of flavour and a wide selection to choose from. The restaurant is very clean, and the takeout... More

We dined at the Mandarin on our way home from Niagara Falls. The food was exceptional and service was extremely good. Mr. Paul Si - Managing Partner came to our table and thanked us for choosing the Mandarin. Will definitely return when we are in the area again.

The table service was great but I did have an issue with the food quality. A large number of the hot dishes were barely warm. I have never seen this at... More
