I'm working in the area and decided that for $17, the buffet lunch was fairly reasonable. The food was very fresh, the entire buffet was available, staff were very polite and extremely attentive. We will definitely be going there again!

The ice cream bar was... More

This was my fifth time this year dining at the Mandarin on the Queensway. It is an above average quality Chinese buffet and likely the best I’ve been to. This evening, there were five in our party, and all loved the cuisine offerings and quality. The service is very attentive, quick and friendly. My favourites are the hot and sour... More

just recieved our order at home. Cantonese Chow Mein 13,79 is now filled with small spaghetti noodles, not large egg noodles, dish is 1inch smaller, the Chinese style beef steak with onions had 6 pcs flat beef and filled with onions, should read "onions with a little beef 11.99 for onions., What a waste of 50.00. Never again.
