First off, I LOVE Mandarin and their food. Our waiter was really nice and friendly, his name is Eric. He kept refilling my water all throughout my stay which was a great attentive touch, as well. My spoon on the other hand is disgusting (I have a picture posted to my review of it)!! It looks like burnt chicken or... More

My father wanted to eat at Mandarin for his birthday. So we packed up the family and headed to the buffet. The lobby wasn't very packed which I really appreciated. But then again it was a very snowy day. The staff greeted us and were very quick to find us a table. When we were seated our waitress came and... More

Being a vegetarian and careful about Chinese food, i was prepared before hitting the restaurant. i drank lots of water to counter MSGs that may come with the food, choose food wisely. As it said, it is a chinese restaurant, so choose Chinese, not Japanese or Western food which they offer. Attempting to be a healthy eater, i went to... More

One of the better Chinese buffets in Toronto. Staff were excellent, food was good and selection was vast. Reasonably priced for lunch.

My husband and I always enjoy the buffet at Mandarin on the weekend. It's great when he wants steak and I want crab. Last Saturday we made a reservation for 5:30 pm to get us in and out in time for a 7:30 movie on the neighbourhood. Lots of customers waiting. We had a 5 minute wait and given a... More

Other than that during the week you get the usual buffet with roast beef , BBQ , pizza, assortments of Asian dishes fried rice , orange/lemon chicken , peppered... More

Food was good and there was plenty of everything. It was all hot and the service was really good. Staff were super friendly. We actually just stumbled on this because we were hungry and driving around Toronto reminiscing from when we used to live there.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
