The choice of food, of various types, is amazing, and there's plenty of it - as much as you can eat. With family not far from St. Catharines we go there annually and it has always been excellent value. I liked the fact that they had sugar-free ice cream for a diabetic like me (a rare treat), and when I... More

The decor at this location is quite nice with a waterfall feature and spacious dining rooms. Don't expect chinese food that is more than average, but the selection is indeed good including japanese sushi and dumpling options. Hot and Sour soup, one of my favourites, was so over-seasoned with pepper you could taste little else. Other hot dishes including black... More

I moved from NYC to Western NY by way of Saratoga, NY, and searched for Chinese and Japanese cuisine with limited success until we discovered the Mandarin Restaurant in St. Catharines, Canada. It wasn't just the price but I was spoiled with Manhattan Chinese restaurants, until we discovered the Mandarin Restaurant. I should've expected that since we were greeted by... More

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

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
