Incredible buffet for lunch or dinner. Lunchtime can get crowded on the weekdays with workers on their lunch break looking for the great selection of items being offered. So happy to have them so close by.

Mandarin Reading is a large restaurant with ample parking just off Rte. 128 at Rte 129. The menu is extensive but not adventuresome. It is the usual suburban stuff. Quality is above average, and their hot and sour soup was excellent. For dinner I would recommend skipping the entrees and concentrating on appetizers.

We have been to this restaurant a number of times over the years. The atmosphere is nice and there is a very attractive pond of large carp/ goldfish that the kids love. Food is good although I haven't found much different and exciting beyond the sushi and usual Chinese food fare. The service is always cordial and accommodating. Yes, I will go back because it's a convenient and easy local place.

We live in Reading and rotate between Mandarin Reading and Oye's for Chineese take-out. Both are very good, and have 'fresh' Chineese food at a reasonable price, with some differencers between the two. We really like the Sezchuan Spicy Chicken, Pineapple Chicken, and Chicken Wings at Mandarin.

This staff is friendly and the food never disappoints. We frequently eat here and order every thing from the rice to the turo. The food is always fresh and the wait staff is attentive.
