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.

I love going here for the fresh healthy foods. Lots of choices good for anyone, with hot soups, salad bar, grilled foods, vegetable dishes and wonderful desserts. Usually busy so lots to see. I would recommend it for a great lunch as the price is really good and seniors get a really good discount.

It's a nice place, very clean considering the traffic, cute decor, and a lot of food variety. It's a buffet restaurant, and in this line I think is in the top. If you want to try from time to time different food taste, at a reasonable price, this is a good place to go.

The restaurant seemed a little low on staff that day - normally not a problem. The food is plentiful, delicious and hot. It is too bad it is so noisy.

I love their buffet!! The price is right, the food is great and fresh, variety is plentiful!! Personnel is polite and pleasant. What else can you ask for?? I love their seafood salads, soups and black pepper beef. Even people that do not like oriental food will find plenty of "regular" food to fill their plates! I go there with... More

Wonderful Chinese cuisine, huge selection, Chinese waiters add to the experience, buffet is always fresh and refreshed constantly, very good value, restaurant decor is lovely, on special Chinese holidays there are added menu items and abundant decoration, like hundreds of paper lanterns.
