I live in the QCA. - I've been coming here since I was 10. I'm currently 23. - definitely has gone downhill - food should have faster turn around - I usually come during lunch so I can't speak for dinner times - clean - a little pricey considering food isn't always refilled. Overall 3/5

Been eating here for years, still the best food and service for oriental style restaurant in the QC's. I am not a big buffet fan so I always order off of the menu. The mandarin beef is excellent as are their appetizers. Service is great as well

We like Chinese and the New Mandarin doesn't disappoint. My perception is that they cook smaller quantities and replenish more often so the food is fresher than I have had at other buffets. To put the icing on the cake, their fortune cookies actually have fortunes in them.

Big buffet for $9.95 but I ordered from the menu. This place is a short walk from the hotel and I enjoyed the meal in my room.

I frequent this restaurant a couple times a month. My favorite used to be Yen Ching in Davenport, started coming across the river to this one when Yen Ching closed. This restaurant has the best egg rolls in the area in my opinion, and they really have a great selection of entrees on the buffet, which their awesome staff diligently... More

Better than average buffet food. I found it quite tasty, and there were a lot of good choices. The staff was helpful, the setting attractive.
