Best Asian Buffet

When we lived in Metro-Boston, this was a regular stop. We almost always took the buffet, because it's extensive and kept fresh. A delightful combination of several (e. g. Mandarin, Cantonese) regional dishes and a full bar. Perfect!!

I had great expectations from this restaurant. After eating there for the lunch buffet, I was not too impressed; the food was okay. The buffet was pretty limited. Mainly because they tried to put so much variety that they had to limit their choices. A lot of breaded food. I will say the soups before the meal were very good.

Went for a lunch buffet and while the price was good and there is lots of food... some of the dishes were bland and tasted the same as others. The hot dishes were not spicy and lacked flavor. I also think the duck sauce and sweet/sour sauce is watered down... very bland.

My mother was asked where she would like to go out for her birthday. She wanted Chinese buffet food and she got it. Maybe my culinary experiences have been limited but if there is one word that comes to my mind when I think about Chinese buffets that's cheap. And yes, Great Mandarin was cheap at $8.95 a person.

Was there on a Sunday evening. The buffet looked ok, but nothing special. We chose to order a couple dishes. The noodle and soup we ordered were both pretty good. There were a few other groups there while we ate, and it was a bit loud and rowdy. Worse, while we sat in a booth next to the buffet, there... More

The owners and staff are very friendly. The atmosphere is very clean and bright. The food is very good. We had been dining here at least once a month for many years. The only complaint is sometimes the waitresses are too eager to take your plate(one time while my husbands fork was on his way to his mouth and he... More
