Normally I'm not a fan of Mandarin, however the freshness and the quality was excellent!! Had about 8 plates!!. Smaller choice food which is why the quality was so great.

Our hobby club holds its annual belated Christmas banquet at this venue. Maybe because it is Chinese New Year time, the menu choices seemed more numerous than on our last visit. The waiter assigned to our expanded table was very attentive and handled the separate bills without any complications. The only complaint of the evening that I heard was that... More

The food is gorgeous and the service great. The restaurant is always full and the atmosphere is brilliant. There is such a large range of fresh foods from different places. The place is so popular that you must book just to be sure you get to enjoy this lovely buffet.

This Mandarin location serves usual Mandarin fare that very reasonably consistent with the standard established by the chain's main location off Hwy. 410 in Brampton. My favorites are the crab legs and beef ribs (available weekend and holiday dinners) but everything is good and fresh - something that MAY vary slightly from location to location, but not very much here...

We arrived early for our reservation but were seated promptly. The food was excellent with much variety to choose from. They even had a Christmas turkey with all the trimmings. Staff removed used plates quickly and the bill was processed efficiently. A good time was had by all.

Always a good choice if you can't decide what you want to eat. The buffet really does have something for everyone. On this visit, the wife and I ate Chinese while my father had prime rib and mashed potatoes. I have never been to a Mandarin and left disappointed. The level of service from the wait is better than most... More

We recently ordered take out from this restaurant and have to say that the quality has now reached the disgusting stage. The Sweet & Sour Soo Gai chicken was 99% soft gooey dough. The Black Pepper Steak had virtually no meat in it and the rice smelt and tasted as if it were cooked a week before. We called to... More
