EXCELLENT SATURDAY NIGHT BUFFET

We had not had Chinese food for some time and simply wanted to experience it again. We had been to Mandarin in the past and decided that was our best option. Well it was just great. The service could not have been better. We did arrive in the early evening and it was only beginning to get busy... read more

We went here on a Thursday night and were seated immediately. The servers were extremely polite and efficient. We really enjoyed the wide variety of food available on the buffet. Price is reasonable for what you get.

We tried Mandarin at Woodbine for the first time, April 2, and we got a table at the very back. Just a few minutes in, we felt suffocated because of the heat and lack of air. We complained to the server about it. He said the management was working on it. We complained again after a while and they said... More

Food is great, lots of seats and lots of options. I liked that you have a lot of food options but disliked the fact that you have to reserve. You have to wait for a long time if you don't reserve seats

During the holiday season, it's always this price, no matter what day or time you go. The food is very good, but I didn't feel like it was quite worth $26.99. The seating is very comfortable though. It was very busy when we went so the service was a little slow, but they should really have had more staff. The... More

Just returned from the Mandarin a moment ago having been there for lunch. This is my fourth or fifth visit there and have always been completely satisfied. Before one's soda is finished there is another one right there in its place. Selection of food is second to none and the staff and the service they provide is top drawer. There... More

The Mandarin is always a fantastic family experience for myself and my FI. We love going there for birthdays and celebratory events as the food is constantly replenished with a fresh new batch at the buffet when it is nearing empty. The servers are all extreamly pleasant and the place is always busy!! My favorite time to go is during... More

Great selection of food. Not all of it was to my liking, but there is a little bit of something for everyone. Since this is a buffet, make sure to go with an empty stomach. It costs $28.99 per person for dinner so make sure to get your moneys worth. Also, alcoholic beverages are not included.

To me, Asian buffets typically consist of low-quality food combined with convenience of having access to a variety of it and immediacy of the accessibility to food. The trade off is quite typical among all Asian buffets I've gone to (I've been to over 40 different Asian buffet restaurants now) and I find this place same as any other place:... More

Out with the family and some friends for dinner, we decided on Mandarin. We were pleasantly surprised to find the holiday menu on mid week. They had everything from perfectly prepared roast beef to lobster and snow crab legs. Service was great; our reservation (which I recommend for this location) was for 6:15. When we arrived it was very empty... More
