Very nice lunch buffet for $10. A wide selection of entrees. Buffet food was fresh and hot. Especially liked the fresh strawberries part of the cold salad buffet area. In the hot entrees my favorites were the egg rolls, chickens wings, the beef chow mein and the stirred fried spicy chicken. My husband raved about the egg drop and hot... More

Thought it was pricey. Waiter wasn't too friendly. Crab cheese were overdone. Could not order fried rice. No extras with meal. Lots of choices, but just average.

We went here for a lunch buffet recently and the variety of dishes was quite large with lots to choose from. Most of the typical selections are available you might expect. Since it's a buffet, you can get in and out for a good lunch in a short period. We've been here for dinner and eat off the menu and... More

We had been eating here nearly weekly some years ago. We finally got to eat here again recently after many years and I am thrilled to say that the food is as delicious as ever. We've had many of the dishes and they are all excellent. The service is very quick and the restaurant has a decent bar selection as... More

While they have a noon buffet which is very good for the money and those who want to eat and run, I love ordering off the menu.The food is fresher and you can "tweak" the selection if you can't ate one ingredient because it is cooked to your order. If you look behind where they are cooking you will find... More

Everyone loves the Great Mandarin for the local Asian food choice. Their food is nicely presented, tastes good, great dips and sauces, generous portions, and friendly, fast service. It is simply over and above most other Asian-style restaurants in town.

If you are looking for authentic Chinese food, this is not the place. THEY DON'T WANT TO BE SO DON'T COMPLAIN! They have a really kind and great service crew. The food WAS AMAZING!! I personally recommend the sesame chicken (my favorite). This is a classic Chinese American restaurant that I will visit for many more times.
