Average but leaning towards good.

It's a nice place inside the local mall with a very decent buffet. Items off the menu are very good. The owner, Tony, is a really nice guy and always recognizes us but that's easy to do because I'm married to a large, kinda scary looking Hispanic guy.

Did not actually dine at the restaurant itself, but ordered from an on-line delivery service which turned out to be OK. The fried dumplings as appetizer were not very good, kind of soggy and tasteless and the dipping sauce that came along appeared to just soy sauce. My main was the shrimp in garlic sauce. While the portion was enough... More

First visit last weekend. Have walked past for years. Very friendly service, huge portions - expect left overs or do some sharing. Very flavorful. Sesame chicken was delicious. My mother in law loved her duck dish. Would highly recommend.

We have eaten at Great Mandarin numerous times and have never been disappointed. We took friends there last night and the food, service, atmosphere, value were off the charts. Tony and Ha, the owners, greet you as if you were family, are ALWAYS present, which in my book insures good results for a restaurant. The portions are large, the food... More
