I'd say it was a great Chinese Restaurant, but for those who do not care for this type of food, there are many other options here. As a matter of fact, there is so much to choose from, you will not only get your money's worth, but you will be very pleased with the overall selection and the unique dining... More

I have not been to the Mandarin in probably 10 years. I used to think the food was great and the deserts were to die for. Today there was bbq pork and flank steak on the carving station. Both were tough and dry and inedible. I was unable to cut my sweet and sour chicken ball. I moved to the... More

Great selection of food items, weekends add to the price but generally something extra offered. Occasionally crab legs are offered too. Always fresh food with attentive service. Good value, go hungry to enjoy the great variety.

The variety & quality at this buffet is over the top. The problem is that it inspires gluttony since there are too many choices including their wonderful desserts.

Prices seeming to be pushing the limits of buffet type dinning with dinner in the week at $25 and weekends at $32 per person. Overall a okay experience but if... More

Last night we took our son and his family for dinner at the Mandarin in St. Catharines. The food was great and a good selection - all freshly prepared. We were very pleasantly surprised by the excellent customer service of all staff in the restaurant. They were all so friendly and polite, and they cleared the tables quickly after each... More
