$9.25 for lunch buffet when there is only few selection. 1 bowl of soup but you have to tell the waitress what kind of soup you want. Food wasn't that good. Service was very friendly and that why I gave 3 stars otherwise it would be 1 or less.

The lunch buffet here is a decent value and a basic assortment of dishes. If seen better and broader selection but for the price it's a pretty good value and worth a visit

When we lived in Metro-Boston, this was a regular stop. We almost always took the buffet, because it's extensive and kept fresh. A delightful combination of several (e. g. Mandarin, Cantonese) regional dishes and a full bar. Perfect!!

I had great expectations from this restaurant. After eating there for the lunch buffet, I was not too impressed; the food was okay. The buffet was pretty limited. Mainly because they tried to put so much variety that they had to limit their choices. A lot of breaded food. I will say the soups before the meal were very good.

Went for a lunch buffet and while the price was good and there is lots of food... some of the dishes were bland and tasted the same as others. The hot dishes were not spicy and lacked flavor. I also think the duck sauce and sweet/sour sauce is watered down... very bland.

My mother was asked where she would like to go out for her birthday. She wanted Chinese buffet food and she got it. Maybe my culinary experiences have been limited but if there is one word that comes to my mind when I think about Chinese buffets that's cheap. And yes, Great Mandarin was cheap at $8.95 a person. And... More
