For the seafood lovers they have crab legs on weekends starting Friday dinner till Sunday dinner. The variety is plentiful you won't know where to start. The style is buffet, the food is fresh and replenished frequently. The service is great. A great place to go with anyone for all the food options they offer.

Very attentive service and super delicious crab legs and chinese buffet. Not cheap but worth the $65 for two people every now and then. I love this place

Had a nice Bruch with our friends. Service was great never had to ask for water or plates to be removed from our table. Food was fresh and hot had a very extensive food line up including dumplings because of the Chinese New Year. Other than being somewhat pricey and I'm not complaining, because the food and great staff made... More

Best Chinese food anywhere. The other great thing about this huge buffet is that they serve all kinds of other foods that taste great too. It's a wonderful buffet for everyone as there are so many choices. The roast beef with all the fixings is tender and melts in your mouth, the crab legs, jumbo shrimp, sushi and other foods... More

Visited the Mandarin at the suggestion of my daughter who lives in the area. Normally, I do not get too excited about buffets, but the Mandarin has a good selection of North American and Asian foods to choose from. The torpedoe shrimps were lightly battered and flavourful. The crab was also nicely done. The pepper steak stir fry was yummy,... More

The food arrived at our door at 5:35pm. It was all very hot, ready to eat. The Crab legs were excellent as other reviewers have mentioned. The... More
