From the moment we walked in the Mandarine we felt so welcomed. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, the buffet tables were filled with an amazing variety of food for every palate. All food was so fresh and tasty. Our servers Nina, Mimi and Amanda were so attentive and anticipated our needs. Even the Managing Partner, Joey Guo visited our... More

I did not expect such a good restaurant on a large Plaza on the edge of the city. But when I came inside, a big surprise. Beautiful and all the food looked so good. And it was very good. A big compliment for Ashley our waitress. She made the dinner perfect.

Lunch is now $16.99 which is expensive but would be ok if the food was good. My family and I used to eat here all the time but I can honestly say none of us will be back. I like the sushi which now consists mainly of meat or fruit wrapped in rice. I asked where the fish was and... More

We ordered take out. Found the wonton soup had alot of grease on top. The sweet and sour ribs were tough. The rest of the food was very bland and without any flavour

Food was hot and generally plentiful with a few exceptions but were replenished fairly quick. Thought the lemon chicken was good and the... More
