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

We were celebrating a special occasion and wanted Chinese food for dinner. We ordered the food via telephone at approx. 12:30 in the afternoon and asked for it to arrive between 5:30-6:00 pm.

Food is always a treat. Crabs legs are excellent. A mere mention of a birthday caused a birthday song at the end of our meal. Staff is excellent.

First time visiting and probably our last... 88 dollars for 2 to dine at a mediocre buffet. Very friendly staff and clean decor with nice fish tanks full of colourful fish to look at but that's about the extent of it. Not a place to go if you are on a budget.

With Mandarin you know what to expect, a good selection, something for everyone's taste, it's fast and easy. I... More

The food is good and the selection can't be beat but I really don't enjoy going to mandarin anymore. It is always so noisy for dinner. Maybe lunch is better

The only thing I wish they offered would be with the buffet a cost cheaper for a one time trip as I can't eat much so it's expensive for someone like myself who's had stomach surgery but everyone wants to go there and it is good.

The food here never disappoints and the presentation is stunning. The restaurant is clean and the staff attentive. Besides that it's all you can eat! They also offer a good selection of North American food if you don't care for Chinese. I've never been disappointed here.
