I was one of a group of 16 who came here for the lunch buffet. It has such a huge selection of items on the buffet - both western food with salad bar, sushi bar and mandarin food, and desserts. Everyone found lots to eat and enjoyed their food. It is such a great value for what you receive.

The restaurant wasn't particularly good or bad, but rather very plain - especially compared to other Chinese buffets. The food was okay, but not much choice, again compared to other Chinese buffet restaurants - limited choice and bland taste. It wasn't particularly clean either - by the chocolate fountain there were pieces of eaten strawberries, seems like people eat them... More

At about $16/person, we found this to be a very large buffet, with many stations to choose from. They had a stir fry station, where you chose what you wanted, and they cooked it up for you - it was really good and very hot that way! The staff took your empty dishes promptly and refilled your drink glasses as... More

I have eaten at the Mandarin Buffet many times, and very rarely have I had a meal that I had any problem with. The variety is good, the Mongolian grill decent (though not as good as a stand-alone Mongolian grill restaurant), and the sushi is far better than any other buffet I have seen. It is also very fresh, with... More

The food is your usual Chinese buffet style with some questionable Sushi on the side. Probably what one would expect from a mediocre buffet place. But that is not the main reason I want to leave this review. The problem is the service that is sub-par and rude on top of simply corrupt. When we tried to pay the check... More

This was our second trip to the Mandarin and it's even better than last time. This is one of the rare Asian buffets that serves real Asian as well as the cliche Asian that most Americans are used to. They have a wide selection of choices including some that aren't often found here such as chicken feet, tripe, and the... More

The restaurant has a large and cheap selection of authentic Asian foods including duck feet. While many of the dishes taste like they do in a restaurant in china some are just to fatty to eat. Like with most Asian restaurants in the west, the selection of veggies is rather limited, relying rather on soy for the vegetarian dishes. The... More

We're frequent lunch customers ($9.99) and always feel we get our money's worth! Large restaurant with an equally large variety of hot and cold menu items. Staff is good at picking up your empty/used plate and refilling water and/or soda. Recommend you arrive early for lunch ( 11 to noon) as they do get busy especially on Fridays. If you're... More

One of the top Oriental buffets on my list. A huge selection and they keep the buffet line well stocked. Too many items for me to try them all on one visit - but everything I tried was very good. The service was very good also and the staff were pleasant and helpful. I will certainly return when next in... More
