This is an average Mandarin Buffet, wait staff were great. The issue I had was at checkout, I do not trust the managers at this location. My bill was $109.00 and I always leave the tip at the table for the wait staff. The woman at the cash tried to pressure me to tip at the cash and I refused,... More

Food always consistent and very tasty. My issue is how the prices have gone up so much (which is why I didn't give 5 *) . I used to go regularly (once twice a mth) but now will only go on special occasions.

Over the years this place became our favourite spot where we escape the routine, or we entertain friends and family without worry. There is always dishes to suit every palate. My wife finds lots of vegetarian cooked dishes apart from an excellent choice of salads and there is no shortage of freshly prepared meat dishes. I always enjoy a healthy... More

Took my 6 year old daughter and parents their on a Friday night. Make no mistake, with weekend pricing, it's not cheap. Senior's discount was helpful. Brought the price to $25 for a senior. The price for a child over 4 is half the adult price, which I still thought was a bit steep. But onto the good stuff. On... More

We were cheerfully greeted at the Door when we arrived. The Décor was nicely done with the Christmas Season . After being seated we were promptly served with our Beverage Order.The "Highlight" of course is the Mandarin Buffet - which did not disappoint. The service during the Dinner was very attentive (empty Plates, extra Drinks).We are looking forward to our... More

Always a great visit at the Mandarin. Drinks are never empty. Some locations you have to wait for them to replenish the crab legs but not here. They are on the ball. My only complaint would be that some dishes were not that hot.

I've been going to this restaurant for the past 12 years. Ever since the renovations a few years ago, I feel that the selection is not the same. It went from great, to just average. The service is still exemplary, but there's something missing. The price has also doubled. $35 with tax and tip.

Due to the high turnover in food they always serve fresh dishes. Enjoyed a lot of the seafood options. Crab legs were delicious and the shrimps as well. For a restaurant not known for their sushi, it was a decent surprise to try it and find most of it to be very well made and tasty. I planned on only... More

While we've been eating at Mandarin restaurants for a long time I have found that the food quality has dipped in recent years. The prices have increased while food quality has decreased. That being said, the food variety is still plentiful and there really is something for everyone. It just isn't as good as it used to be. On top... More
