The 4 of us stopped and ordered take out. The chick fried rice was dry and scorched tasting. 2 of us had the appetizer pepper pork and some pieces were peppery, some not, and some were tough and fried to much. Not much uniformity. We suspect it was all dished from the buffet which could have been cooked at different... More

We took our nephew here for his birthday and we were very pleased with the quantity and quality of the food. My roast beef was dry and didn't taste like beef but all the other food was delicious. The washrooms were very clean. No WiFi but plenty of free parking. Very friendly staff and they cleared the tables quickly. Definitely... More

My kids love coming to the Mandarin. They have a excellent variety of food. Only thing is avoid going at dinner time or weekend nights as it get very busy and its also fairly expensive especially if your not into eating what causes the price to inflate.

Met with some family at the Mandarin for lunch. Was crazy busy for a Wednesday at 1PM, but the service was still great. I think there was only one thing that was empty at the buffet when I went for it, but the next time I went it was restocked. Food was hot and the service was good. And it... More

The Mandarin is a place to go for good reasonable food, Being a buffet one can eat as much or as little as one desires, not to mention the variety. every day there is a roast on the carving station for the meat lovers, while the fish lovers make a beeline for the crab legs etc, and to top it...

We were here yesterday and sat in section "c", by the window. I wish I could say everything was clean, but it sure wasn't. There was dust on the window sills, the blinds were pulled down and had a lot of mystery chunks on them and the sides were frayed and showing their age. The table cloth had been used... More
