“Very friendly service and a great choice of dishes.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

This restaurant offers a cornucopia of delightful dishes representing Oriental, Asian and north American cuisine. Each dish I tried was fresh and well prepared although the prime rib was my absolute favourite.
From the moment you enter the restaurant, when you are greeted by a lovely lady in a traditional kimono you feel transported. Polite smiling staff greet you as you are shown to your table. We enjoyed the buffet and each empty plate was removed and serviettes replaced quietly and efficiently. This is a large and popular dining place, which welcomes families. The dining area was very well designed both aesthetically and from an acoustic aspect. Although it can be very busy the noise is never intrusive.
A large staff keep ensuring the buffet is always replenished and many times we were asked if all was to our satisfaction.
This restaurant epitomises the benefit of having managers 'walking the job'. The staff make a very good Chinese Restaurant into a great experience. We will be back.

“Not What It Used To Be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

I've been going to this Mandarin location for years and the food quality and service have slipped significantly in the last couple of years. My most recent visit was the worst one yet. The service was reasonable but rushed and sloppy. The food was not very fresh and not particularly flavourful either. The bill for my friend and I (we just had the buffet and tap water) was over $50 after tax and tip on a weekday and it's just no longer even remotely worth that kind of price.

“Excellent spread and service, good quality has a scope”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

I loved the restaurant, as well really appreciated the spread of the buffet. The service too was unobtrusive and yet very professional.
I have only two things which I can point out as a scope of improvement - firstly the exhaust of the buffet area needs to be improved, there was a mélange of smells. Secondly the food was oily, it could be something that could be improved and earn that one extra star which I held back this time.
Still I would say this restaurant is a must visit when in Toronto !!
