Went here solo on a business trip. I had heard good things and the reviews here were good. The restaurant is very large with several different dining rooms. Hot towels served before and after the meal. Centrally located between the dining rooms is the large buffet room with many different stations - salad; soup; hot beef and chicken options with...

This was the first time that I was at this restaurant and I was not impressed. There is food every where but no direction where the lines start and end. It was very crowded. There was way to much food. How can any one eat more than one plate of food. It was not a good experience and I will... More

In the middle of a busy shopping day we headed to the Mandarin. It's a great place to try new dishes. Such a variety. Everything seemed to be fresh and lots of it! Great spot, but the only bad thing is don't get there often enough!

Our church senior group went to Mandarin the other day, some 36 of us. This is the second year we have gone for our Christmas banquet rather than having it catered at twice the price. The management gave us a good price for lunch and our own room. Otherwise, we used the regular facilities. As always, their food was fresh,... More

This is not the first time we visited the Mandarin in Kitchener, Ontario. Great place to eat, you can linger for a while and try everything on the menu. The discount for seniors makes it very affordable for people on limited income. We start with the salads and work our way up. I am gluten free and have no problem... More

I went her with lunch with my sister. 20% seniors discount made the meal very affordable. The staff is very friendly. The food was hot and well displayed. Lots of choices from Asian to roast beef and Yorkshire puddings. Desserts are very tempting and look delicious. Something for everyone from meat lovers to vegetarian. One of our favourite paces to...

The Mandarin is a favourite spot for a quality buffet dinner. Lots of choices and the food is always fresh - there is really something for everyone. Prices for the buffet are reasonable considering the high end food offerings (crab legs, seafood, etc.). We have dinner here frequently and have never been disappointed.

Pretty average fare. I've been to way better and more authentic Asian food places, but I think it would be good for families with children or teens as there is something for everyone's tastebuds

Poor has gotten worse over the years. Not good quality food nor fresh and not worth the money. Think twice before dinning here.
