Better then the one in the falls.

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.

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.

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.

The high-turnover of guests ensure the food is always fresh and hot. Good selection of dishes. Servers are very friendly and attentive. Great place for a large group and they are always accommodating.

Mandarin restaurants are usually good. Every experience I have had has been excellent. And as far as the all you can eat rule ... I always abide by it! It is one of those places where if you take advantage of the all you can eat thing, you will practically need a wheelchair to roll you out the door. The... More

We thoroughly enjoy our meals at Mandarin! The food is plentiful, hot and delicious. I especially like the cold seafood and salad section - all very fresh, while my husband goes more for the hot entrees. There is wonderful variety to suit any taste, including great soup, sushi, traditional Chinese foods, and roast beef, etc. The service is excellent. We... More
