Took our son to the Mandarin for lunch on a Friday. I haven't been here for years. I was so impressed. First, it was clean and atmosphere was lovely. The food was displayed very creatively. I was very impressed that each item had the calories listed under their title. But the best was that the food was fresh and delicious.... More

If you have been to one Mandarin restaurant, you know what to expect. There is a wide variety of choices that should suit all eaters but I do know that it use to be hard for gluten free eaters to be guaranteed no gluten, so you might want.to call 1st to ensure it is suitable. It can be very busy... More

Just got home from the Hamilton location. When we went to pay for our bill we were told the machine was down. So now debit and no credit is available. They told us if we needed cash we had to use the ATM at the front. I go to use the ATM and it's 1.75 fee. I disputed it and... More

We like this Mandarin the best. Good food,clean and great service! But year to year it has become almost too expensive to eat here.

There is no reason no one would not find something to eat here. The variety of food is endless and appeals to everyones palate young and old. I find the prices to be a little high but you know you will not go hungry and they also have a great dessert choose too.

Thank Carlo D
