Bday at the Mandarin with the Family

I took my family to the Mandarin in St. Catharines yesterday to celebrate my birthday. Can't say enough about the great service, food and hospitality. We all had a great time!

Very prompt service, clean, fresh food, cooked well with lots of variety. Have eaten here many times and rarely have room for dessert. Really love the prime rib.

If you find the Mandarin a bit pricey, definitely go at lunch. The buffet is always delicious and dependable. I have been here for both dinner and lunch several times. Yes, it gets busy but they are efficient and the place is very clean. Get there hungry.

We decided to go to the Mandarin for dinner tonight, we’ve been to this location before but it was particularly busy tonight. The food was excellent as usual but it seemed like the kitchen struggled to keep up with the demand as I found many items on the buffet were empty and slow to replenish. Over all the food was...

We are the type of family who some are late and some are early. Our recent visit was no different so the early birds are able to nibble on an egg roll & soup while waiting for the family members coming from Toronto. The variety is the plus here and with all ages and taste buds that is a must!... More

The food is consistently fresh, tasty, hot and has good flavor. There is plenty of choice, the dishes are always full, and the steam tables kept clean; so your overall feeling is quite good. The staff is very friendly and they take good care of you always replenishing your beverages and taking away dirty plates. This Mandarin is by far... More

Food is always good, price....not so much....but of course it's a buffet style so it makes sense to be pricey because it's an all you can eat, I have had a couple of dirty utensils but was replaced immediately, staff are great people, will try to make our visits for lunch as its less expensive.
