You can't beat The Mandarin for Chinese food!!! We have had many family occasions here to celebrate (birthdays, anniversaries), and we love the oriental atmosphere and especially the wonderful, welcoming staff!!! The buffet is always so beautifully presented, fresh and simply delicious. Our last family do was just before Christmas, and we can hardly wait to return this week to... More

This place is the best buffet we've ever seen! So much variety and there were always fresh supplies being put out. We went for a late supper and everything was still being refilled. Service was good too. Something for everyone. Would definitely go again.

Recently we, my wife and myself decided no more Buffet's. We got invited to go and celebrate with family. Nothing stood... More

My wife and I went to the Mandarin in Kitchener for New Year's lunch. We were greeted at the door by a smiling, polite and personable hostess who clearly helped us with the food layout, comfortable seating, etc., The amount of food was overwhelming, but we sampled most of it and found it all inviting, delicious and warm. The servers... More

Have to start by saying the food was simply average and costs much more than other Asian buffets in the area. Selection was great, and the staff kept things topped up well. I have a sever allergy to coconut/coconut oil so we always make sure to ask if there's anything I should stay away from. We were told by our... More

A good overall buffet but this location lacks the same level of quality as the main location off Hwy. 410 in Brampton. Likely a very good place to eat in the area given local competition, but heading further east into the GTA will probably get you a Mandarin fix that you'll enjoy more. Still, on a overall scale, I give... More

We had intended to go to our son's in Southern Ontario for Christmas, but they got the flu, and we didn't want that kind of a gift! So I made reservations for the Mandarin for lunch--$16.99 less 20% for seniors. Great price. We arrived at 11:40 a.m. and were immediately seated with the usual congeniality we had come to expect....
