“great food, zillions of choices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2010

We often go with friends to the Mandarin Palace. The food is great- many choices, vegie choices, even a stir fry bar where you pick and watch your food cooked. Service is wonderful with very pleasant staff. Do not go if the word "diet" is part of your vocabulary because you will love the items from great soup choices to really good desserts (the coconut cake is unbelievably good). Nice atmosphere; very clean. Can't think of one reason not to go- great price, too.

“Bland, lukewarm food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2010

This place is an "all you can eat" buffet. It has the potential to be very good, but it really misses the mark. There is a lot of food, but it's all pretty bland and the warming trays are kept at a lukewarm temperature. It was a disappointment.
