It is a Mandarin, not too bad, for entertainment you get to see a lot of guests stuffing themselves silly on crab legs, not my cup of tea.
My first visit to a Mandarin in several years, the last being the one in Barrie. Prices are getting high but again this is Toronto and the amount of crab legs that are eaten well I guess they have to pay for them some how!

This location seems to have poor access to the buffet, narrow entries to the individual dining rooms off the buffet area creating many traffic jams, especially when fresh legs were brought out.

I must say the staff were friendly and efficient, quickly clearing tables of dirty dishes, etc.

Would I return here again, no, cost $30ea (those legs again) and the rudeness of the guests (example of several; one 20 something pushing in front of a senior who was deciding on what to put on her plate). Possibly try the Barrie location again, maybe.

We are from Brockville and My husband goes to Etobicoke on business a few times each year and I go with him, we always look forward to eating at the Mandarin Rexdale during our stay.
We have eaten at other Mandarin restaurants but this one at Queen's Plate is by far the BEST!

From the first time we went we were greeted at our table by the manager she was oh so very pleasant, personable, attentive and sincere, the food matched the service absolutely wonderful. Each time we go we order a bottle of wine with our dinner and spend a lovely evening enjoying many of the 'delicious' choices that are on the buffet---we have never seen such a buffet before, so plentiful and so tasty right down to the last bite of dessert and there is everything you can think of at the dessert bar, so make sure to save room.
With our dessert we sipped a cup of Chinese Tea, our server brought a tea box to our table and I choose a stronger Chinese tea that she recommended (I just forget the name of it) but like everything else at this Mandarin it too was perfect.
We will be going back to Toronto soon and we are looking forward to eating at the Queen's Plate Mandarin again!

We choose Mandarin Rexdale for our friend's birthday party. We were seated right away to the table by the beautiful fish tank. The service was great, smiling and very attentive to our needs. So many choice of food that you don't know where to start.The best part of our meal is near the end. The waitress come to our table with a small cake with a candle on it, and start to sing "happy birthday". Guess what? We get a complimentary photo for the birthday person.We love the Mandarin!!!!!!
