Reasonable prices, excellent variety. Although some dishes are definitely westernized, there several rather authentic dishes, particularly the vegetarian options. My children always have a blast here. Essentially, due the vast variety of food, there is something for everyone. I've come here at least a dozen of times past couple of years, never been disappointed. Consistency is high.

We loved the selection and freshness of the food offered at the Mandarin! We particularly like the sushi and seafood sections of the buffet tables, as well as the hot meats that are carved for you as you wait.Service was quick and friendly.

Nice food, good selection and good service but a bit expensive. I went there with a friend and had a good time. Clean place. Recommended for buffet lovers.

This was the first time I had been here in years and it was better than I remembered! Everything was really good. Lots of options incase you have dietary needs too. The food isn't always perfectly hot, but most of the time it's great.

I was in Kitchener on business staying at the Hampton Inn and decided to take the six-minute walk to The Mandarin close by. Although I've wanted to try this restaurant chain before this was my first opportunity to go there. I was immediately greeted at the door, offered a 20% Senior's discount and seated promptly. I loved that I was... More
