Four of us chose this restaurant for our lunch, based upon past experiences. We have dined here several time in the past, and each occasion has been a positive dining experience. Sine each of us has our own favorite cuisine, it is often difficult to find a venue that will satisfy all of us. But at the Mandarin, we each enjoyed our dish selections, and we were full and satisfied when we left. The restaurant is clean (especially the washrooms), the service was friendly and prompt, and the food was great!

Absolutely perfect, Staff, Food, Atmosphere. Worth every dollar, excellent variety, healthy choices, hot meal choices were outstanding. This is the second time visiting Mandarin and was this same location, we had a special visit from the manager Carolyn and she made this occasion extra special. Thank you Carolyn. If an opportunity comes up to be back in the area, we will definitely be coming to this restaurant again bring family and friends. Attention Corporate Partners: Please open up more restaurants especially in the Western Provinces (Calgary) would be great.

Today was my first visit to the Mandarin in Barrie. I have eaten at several chineese restaurants but this one stands out over all the others. The selection was great, service was outstanding and everyone that I took notice of thoroughly enjoyed their dinner. I am visiting from the east coast and I enjoy the chineese buffets we have down home but they don't even come close in comparison to The Mandarin. If we had one in Moncton, it would be my first choice for dining out.

My husband & I took our son here for his birthday dinner and we all really enjoyed it. It is a great choice to eat here because of the different varieties of food. You can eat beef, chicken, sushi, fish and you can get most of these dishes without being mixed with other things. Especially great if you don't want to eat unnecessary carbs (like rice and pasta). If you don't overload on dinner, it's always great to save room for dessert since they have such a large selection to choose from. The service is always great and the staff really go out of their way to ensure everyone is having a great experience.

Mandarin offers a variety of different foods. Canadian. Chinese. Italian and other equally delicious medleys.The desserts they offer appear to be all made on site and they have an amazing mixture of either decadent desserts..fruits..waffles..ice cream...I don't usually like buffets as most dishes taste the same but the Mandarin seems to take pride in making each dish equally tasty and differentiating in taste..there is always someone making sure the dishes are both full and presentation is clean...Love the hot cloths offered both before and after the meal..It ended up costing 80. For 1 adult and female teenager. That included 2 non alcohol drinks and the tip..but since it was a treat was well worth the experience..service was impressive.
