Consistently above average

The best service you will find in any restaurant in Cambridge. The food is always good just not great. It's well above average and a good value. I admit I never ordered off the menu. I always have the buffet.

Recently the whole building was closed down by the city, mostly for code violations in the apartments upstairs. Then after the building had been closed down a fire started in one of the upstairs apartments and the building was destroyed. They have torn it down now and have not heard if the Q will open somewhere else.

We went for the buffet and it was really substandard friends have said its usually very good but we didn't get back before building issues forced occupants out. If they open up again I'll give them another shot

I like to get to the Mandarin at 11:00 when they open up. They have a wide assortment from salads, to appetizers. entrees, desserts, and ice cream. It is a good value for the price.

This is the worst "Chinese" I have ever tasted. The food is overcooked and bland. Nothing about it is appealing. They haven't changed anything about the place in decades. Anyone that likes this, has never had truly good Chinese food.

The food is fresh and delicious! It's no way to try everything. I have 3 grandkids and all of them find their own favourite food. We were always satisfied!

Great Chinese buffet. Good price and quality food. You can bring a crowd and feed them all. We have gone quite a few times and came out satisfied.

We love to meet for lunch here. The buffet has terrific selection... always beautiful and fresh! I love the crisp green broccoli and peppers...and the cream cheese wontons are always fresh and crisp. They do a good job of keeping an old building clean and welcoming. Do I wish they could afford a lovely new building? Sure, but I'm glad... More

I went there with a co-worker a few years ago and I was not impressed at all. The food wasn't good and the dining was dirty.

Q Mandarin is one if my favorite Chinese buffets. A large selection, always fresh. Only wish there was a spicier dish to choose.
