The restaurant is not big,but nice and clean, quit confortable! At such cheaper price and providing so many choices including variety of desserts,i could say beyond my expection!it's a buffet restaurant after all, we can not expect a lot services from waiters, but they are helpful and friendly to keep everything in order to meet coustomers needs. Particularly,coustomers with little... More

It used to be quite lovely for eating in and take away but over the last few years it's really gone downhill. I'm not sure if anything (Food Supplier?) or anyone (Chef?) in the restaurant has changed or our taste buds have but I won't be going back.

The buffet is limited and not anything to write home about. There's very little selection and they don't deliver to their own area. Wouldn't use again.

This establishment serves bulk, luke warm asian style food for the masses. I do not reccomend it to anyone that loves Asian food. The tables are coated with plastic, and the cutlery is dirty.

21 of us visited the Mandarin Garden last night as a large family group. However, having read a couple of the recent reviews I was a little apprehensive. However, I shouldn't have worried, whilst the range wasn't as extensive as some buffets it was well cooked, tasty and hot and there was plenty of duck. The price was reasonable at... More

20 of our family and friends met here last night (27/8) we booked originally for 15 then added a further 5 to the party last minute - no problem. We had a couple of large tables all pushed together which was great, meaning we could all have a good ole catch up. The restaurant is very basic and large but... More

I've used this restaurant since it has opened several times. I've noticed a gradual deterioration and now it's not good at all. They sat us under the vent which was freezing. We ordered our drinks and decided to move, the waitress made a big point of looking for us in her return we had only moved one table across (... More

The food is quite reasonably priced. The food is okay, sometimes it's a bit cold but still good. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly which makes the whole experience very pleasant.

My wife and myself have been going to this restaurant on average twice month at lunch times for about the last two years. We have never had any reason to complain, food is always good, with a great selection and you can eat as much as you want and not be rushed by staff, who are friendly and helpful. It... More
