Great staff, huge range of really good food. All-you-can-eat, so a great way to try something new. Sushi is really good! We get our friends to take us here whenever we are visiting Kitchener.

Have visited this restaurant several times over the past two years during my annual visit to see my aunt. Just had my latest meal there towards the end of June and what a meal. Brilliant selection of eastern foods, all well cooked and extremely tasty. The salad selection is also very good and the sweets/puddings/cakes are just out of this... More

The Mandarin has always been a good restaurant for the value. The wait staff are always super friendly and I was very impressed with the way the start your dinner with a warm cloth to wash your hands with, as well as when you receive the cheque. The selection was good and they keep the restaurant really clean. I would... More

Service is very attentive to the customer. Good selection of food fair. Crab legs were a bit small but we were still able to get meat out of them. Place is fairly loud so be prepared for that. But over all there are worse places to eat as there are better places. That being said the Mandarin is a nice... More

This place is always busy. Everyone is friendly. The take reservations. Food is always great. Wish the buffet wasn't as expensive as it is now (same for all mandarin) or we'd go more often - over $30 a person.

Mandarin is a popular restaurant. All of the Mandarin restaurants draw a very brisk business. In fact, around the holidays, I would suggest reservations well in advance of your meal. Mandarin restaurants are clean, with a large number of tables. The Kitchener/Waterloo area is no different than many part of Canada in being under services in the BUFFET category. This... More
