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 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.

Although it is buffet service, you would never know by the quality of the food and service. They had a vast variety of delicious dishes from many... More

Despite having a large set of staff they were unable to finish cleaning and inspecting the floor and ran the vacuum cleaner around customers. The noise was not just for a minute ... They had to be told to stop forceful and felt it was okay. This is never acceptable. Food was good except for the Sushi which you could... More

The choices and especially the quality of Mandarin food is excellent. As a senior, I can have lunch for less than $15 and eat a wonderful variety of food. I highly recommend this experience.

We usually go to this location every 3 months or so...just so much food to eat. But again we were not disappointed. The food is hot and always filled. The food is tasty and there is more then enough selection. Service is outstanding. Can't go wrong eating here.

We visit the Mandarin every time we are in the area. This buffet style restaurant specializes in Asian dishes, but has lots of other choices too. The dessert tables are amazing; there are so many options that you have to circle round and round trying to decide which ones to choose because you would explode if you tried everything that... More
