Several family members (8) dined here last weekend. Those who chose the seafood buffet were pleased, in fact, the teenage boys went back for seconds. Ordering off the menu was another story. It took forever for the food to arrive. No one enjoyed their soup, and the others items were so-so. My husband has eaten here before with friends, but... More

Very good buffet and service. Ice tea was free, and there was a good variety of choices. Desserts were a little lacking and were empty and not replaced as soon as they should have been, but other then that, this place was awesome!

This restaurant has good Chinese food. Parking can be difficult but there is a parking lot in the rear and another not far from the restaurant. Prices are reasonable.

We recently stopped at Mandarin House Restaurant for lunch. This was our second visit to this restaurant and we found the food to be very good and reasonably priced. Although this restaurant is know for its all-you-can-eat buffet, we opted for the lower calorie entrees. We had sweet and sour chicken and vegetables with tofu. Both were very good. Along... More

As my title says, I'm here for the pot stickers. They are good. They are super friendly and offer free iced tea which is always a nice perk. Most people come here for the buffet so they can try a little bit of everything but ordering off the menu is absolutley okay. They have a small little desert bar and... More

I really like the food at this restaurant. The sauces are the way they should be, not overpowering, very flavorful. The pot stickers are as good as I have ever eaten. I have not tried the buffet here, I just order off of the menu to go. Excellent wait staff too.

From time to time I think of returning here for a meal, and then while I'm going through the buffet line I remember why I don't frequent this restaurant. The food seems to all taste alike, it doesn't appear fresh and usually several item trays are empty. I now vow to not return ever again!

Coming from the San Jose, Los Angeles, and San Diego areas, our group is accustomed to good Asian food including the buffet-style restaurants. We stumbled across this restaurant while driving by to our hotel in Sonora. I was a bit wary to try it, but it turned out to be a nice experience. The restaurant was clean. The decor was... More

Have a nice spread, it is getting better and fresher than it used to be. Tons of selections, I must say. I like almost all of them. They have fresh shrimp, lots of salads and veggies as well. Cute desserts.
