We always enjoy the selection of food at the Mandarin restaurants. Have to have a few shrimp before the chowder then sample the various Chinese dishes before checking out the desserts. A piece of the twisty sticky one is a "must" dessert. Waiters are good at removing plates and encouraging another course! (Personally we prefer Pickering Mandarin as it has... More

We always enjoy our dinners at the Mandarin. The service is first-rate and the buffet selections so varied that it is difficult to try them all. The only downside that we have noted on our last few visits has been that the won tons in the soup are slightly underdone. They have a definite doughy flavour. Also we would wish... More

It is what it is. Good for taking the whole family as everyone will always find something they will like. Personally I find it over priced especially for children. On a plus.... the service is always great. Waters are always kept full and dirty plates are removed quickly.

Very good. Our first time to the Oshawa location. Good selection of typical buffet Mandarin food. Always a good dessert presentation.

It is the best Chinese buffet in the area, but you're also paying a commensurate price for the wide variety of dishes that are offered. It is one of the only places I know of, that you can get New England clam chowder. Not very Asian, but tasty nonetheless. Unfortunately, I did find some of the dishes on the cold... More

Never had any complaints. I must admit I don't go for Chinese food and I really don't go there for that. I love the salad bar and seafood on weekends as well as the prime rib. My daughter loves the selection of sushi and chicken dishes. Dessert options are awesome.
