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

If you like to eat lots of food this is the place for you. The food is average Chinese Food with an assortment of other items like salads, pizza and sushi. Nothing is to spicy or bold in flavour so it can appeal to many. I have been to other Mandarins in Hamilton and Burlington and the buffet seems smaller... More

Had lunch with friends at the Mandarin and was greeted by a cheerful hostess who asked discreetly if we were seniors. There as a very large array of food tables with varying food types and categories You would have to be a very fussy eater not to find something to fit your palate. Everything was fresh and very tasty a... More

On a recent Friday night, I thought it prudent to make a reservation in order to avoid any possibility of a lineup. Much to my chagrin, after providing the confirmation code to the front desk, my companion watched on helplessly as two other “walk-in” couples were seated ahead of us. After sharing this concern with the hostess, she replied flippantly,... More

I visited this Mandarin with a group of 35 people. The staff setup a private room which was great! Although not required, the side room was equipped with a large LCD TV and sound system. That's nice to know for future business functions. The food was astounding - very high quality and LOTS of it. There is so much that... More

A friend wanted to take my wife and me out for dinner here. Wife and I had not been here for years. The food was a little better than we had remembered. I enjoyed the seaweed salad. There was also sushi which I didn't remember from before. The restaurant was not very busy, maybe because it was a Wednesday evening.... More

VERY VERY good place to go for Chinese but ask before you go in because it's expensive .36 dollars each is a little steep.Overall if your up for spending that amount of money each it's a great place.

Had dinner with family and friends - very large buffet. Several choices of salads and soups as well as the traditional lo mein and rice sides. Large variety of main course options from sushi to sweet and sour chicken, beef dishes, shrimp, egg rolls, spring rolls and an entire table dedicated to desserts. Would definitely return to sample more of... More
