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

Nice and clean, very friendlly staff, modern decore restaurant. Buffet style, all you can eat, great assortment of food some international cuisine. A little pricy for the ordinary person IMO $20-$30 plus per person

If you have no food allergies and love Chinese food, this is the place for you BUT...if you have Celiac disease or food allergies I do not recommend this restaurant. Be careful when ordering drinks, there is an extra tax they add on for alcoholic beverages. Great for buffet goers...but not for anyone with food allergies.

Amazing buffet, so many choices. Friendly efficient staff. Want to send a special shout out to our waitress Nikki, not only did she anticipate our every need, when my husband paid her he accidentally gave her an extra $20.00 and she returned to us with all his money so he could see what he did. We would never have known,... More

We live in Tonawanda, NY and a friend of mine turned me on to Mandarin about 20 years ago. My husband, the VERY picky eater, didn't want to go because he was sure there would be NOTHING he liked.....fast forward to our trip yesterday....everything was as delicious as ever and he was the one that was telling me I might...

My husband and l are usually at the St. Catharine's Mandarin weekly. We reside considerably south of St. Catharine's, but it is always our choice of restaurant when eating out. My preference is for seafood and salads, where my husband always has soup, salmon & rice. Another plus has been the excellent variety of so many delicious desserts. All patrons... More

This Mandarin is one that I come to often for family dinners or just on a night when I really don't want to cook. The staff in this Mandarin are very kind and attentive to the wants and needs of their customers. On more than one occasion when an item on the buffet was not to my liking the manager... More

I will definitely come back at the Manadarin. You can't go wrong with food selections and the price and they welcome you with smile. Gerald from Niagara Falls, Ontario
