This was my first time to Mandarin and as soon as you walk in the door the atmosphere is amazing, the buffet is to die for, and they make a good strong drink. Whether you need to bring a client out for lunch or family for dinner this place is a great choice. Good sushi too!

Mandarin has a modern interior that is stylish, and the food measures up to the décor. Meals are fresh tasting, with minimal use of MSG compared to many places. At lunch and on designated days there is a small buffet with sushi and standard but flavorful buffet items like shu-mai, General Gau's Chicken, etc. There is also a separate sushi/sashimi... More

Was by myself so decided to get some Chinese food on this business trip. Based on reviews I decided to give it a try. The food was bland, nothing out the extraordinary but not bad either.

Milford Mandarin has the best Chinese food by far than any other place in the area. If you haven't tried it, its worth the trip. Also, the New Year's Eve buffet is outstanding !!

I find this a hit or miss type place. Most people I know really like it, so I am sure I am just pickier about my Asian fare. Nice atmosphere, but not awesome. Given the local choices, this is a good solid choice for sushi.

Went over to the restaurant when it was snowing lightly. Was quickly seated by the waitress and shown the menu. I could see only a few diners in the restaurants at the time. Due to the cold weather, decided to order the hot sour soup ($2.95) to go with the pepper beef ($11.50) and white rice ($1). I noticed that... More
