“Older man coughing and spewing on food”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

On July 24th, an older man was coughing and spewing on the buffet at Mandarin in Burlington. He is there twice a day and he has some disease that was not revealed to me. If anyone has been sick after eating there, please contact me at 416-356-5656.

“A Little Off”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

I thought the quality was just a little off for the price of over $32 including tax for an adult. I have gone to the Kings Buffet on Centennial in Stoney Creek a few times and I thought the selection was tastier and maybe bigger.

“Typical fare, cheap and plentiful”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

I haven't been to a mandarin in years, it hasn't changed much.
The inside lobby is beautiful with small pond, the requisite Koi, and lots of flowers - very pretty.

Lots of dish choices, decent quality - not four star but plentiful and relatively inexpensive.
My lunch mate had shrimp - which I enjoy - but I hate having to take the shell off each one. I had rice, chicken ball and numerous other small items -I don't each a lot these days.

“Hit or miss”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I guess with typical buffet type of food this restaurant can be hit or miss depending on when you go. For the most part the food is good, however, can be bad if it has sat too long. Not a bad place to take family or friends for an all-you-can-eat lunch or dinner if you want quick service and a variety of food.

“Great selection, great taste”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

You never go wrong having a meal here. The selection is big, the food is always well presented, hot, colorful, and very tasty. No one leaves here hungry. Good service. Good value.
