We often visit Mandarin because of quality, variety, atmosphere and great food. It's an excellent place to have lunch or dinner with a small or large group of people. I'm writing a combined review based on my overall experience of the place and not on one particular visit, as I've visited Mandarin a number of times in the past. I don't recall ever having a bad experience at Mandarin, If i did it was likely due to the "human element" - their staff (billing error, unfriendly, etc.). In general, I would say that the food is always great and there's tons and tons of variety. Fresh salads, excellent choice of hot menu items, bbq, sushi, desserts, fresh fruit and ice-cream, soups. There's something for everyone. Would highly recommend! Have been to other buffets as well but nothing is comparable.
