We had a family gathering of 9 at Mandarin recently--my spouse and I, older son, younger son and family, his mother-in-law, and brother-in-law. For us, the Mandarin (along with China House in Cambridge) has always been the standard of comparison in rating Chinese food. It did not let us down! We arrived just after it opened for lunch, were quickly... More

We went to this Mandarin for the first time last night. I was impressed by the quantity, and the quality of the food served. The Mandarin restaurants are known for their consistency but I liked this one over some of the others. It was nicely decorated, well laid out with the tables spaced out. I have been to some where...

Still one of the few buffets around that can satisfy a large party of different tastes for one decent price. Staff was attentive and refilled soft drinks without prompting them and cleared tables when plates were ready to go. If you like prime rib, you can sit there all day and enjoy! If you have members of your party not... More

Beautiful presentation, huge selection, always fresh and tasty. Good value. As hard as I try to take small portions, I just can't resist eating more than I should. Wish there was one even closer to where I live. Maybe it's good that there isn't.

The resturant enviroment was welcoming and all the servers were very attentative. The food selection was great, they provided many different types of food that were all equally delcious. We were greeted and served upon entering and sitting down in the resturant. Overall it was a great experience and plan on returning many times.

The food selection is not bad, however, it taste awful. We paid $71 for 2 people and it was the worse money spent in a restaurant ever. The service was very slow, it took forever to get drinks served and to get the bill. Overall, I would not recommend, go to Charcoal and get a nice steak for the price... More
