“great place to dine and celebrate a birthday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

recently our family attended my wife's mother's 90th birthday at this popular north oshawa eating establishment. whether you are in oshawa as a visiting sporting team, a large group, or just in for a cozy 'two for dinner' engagement, the mandarin is fully prepared to handle your occasion. the food is truely varied, excellent and of course the buffet presentation allows for copious helpings. i truthfully don't make a habit of dining out all that often, but this place nevertheless comes highly recommended for it's location, ease of parking, it's very good food - you can eat healthy or 'go to town' with the extravagant desert menu, and it enjoys an easy-going atmosphere. it is very clean and i found the service to be excellent. this is a quality eatery with competitive pricing. we enjoyed an enjoyable meal for a group of well over twenty. the staff will find you a quiet nook to talk business, or a larger room to partake in a festive, celebratory function. said staff are highly attentive and efficient.

“Sunday lunch visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Mandarin is always one of those restaurants that, im my opinion, can only be handled once and a while. It generally has a very good selection of hot and cold foods. There is a sushi bar that is probably below average tasting; in my perspective, if you are going to do sushi, do it right. You can eat a healthy meal there by utilizing there salad bar and the wide variety of vegetables. The warm meal area also has various health options but also a lot of fried things. Over all i like the Mandarin for special occasions like birthdays; you can get a big group together and enjoy the time spent there and not have to be waited on by people and come and go as you please.

“The Mandarin Oshawa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Thank-you Mandarin for hosting our work xmas dinner. There were almost 90 of us and we had one of the rooms all to ourselves - service was great. I personally do not find the buffet at the Mandarin to be awesome. It is good food for what it is, not always hot, not always fresh. But to serve 90 people, there is always a lot of choice for ppl.

“Welcome Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went to the Mandarin for lunch with friends. From the time you enter the restaurant you are made fell welcome. Every staff member you meet welcomes you. They tell you where everything is located & when you get seated there is always someone at your table right away to see what you would like to have to drink. You don't have to wait for staff to take the used dishes away. They have trained their staff WELL.
