So if you have ever been on a cruise and enjoyed the wonderful buffet, try to erase that memory...otherwise you won't enjoy your next visit to the Mandarin. This lunch buffet is severely scaled back and is mainly an all-you-can-eat cafeteria experience. No more fresh cheese, BBQ skewers or prime rib. You'll have to settle for the salad bar, sushi,...

The Mandarin restaurant in Oshawa is part of a first class Chinese buffet style chain. The food is kept re filled and the variety is top drawer. They usually have a few dimsum, sushi selections. The service is exceptional. You should be advised to reserve on weekends or holidays. If you are on a strict diet you will have difficulty... More

I would say that this is the best Mandarin and Chinese Buffet I have been to. They have so much variety and everything is fresh and tastes great! But make sure, if at all possible, to leave space for deserts cause they have plenty and again all is delicious. A little on the expensive side but well worth it. Great... More

The food is always great and there is a huge variety. You have to be careful you don't eat too much. Service is perfect every time. Nice that you can get reservations for a special occasion. I usually do lunch rather then dinner as this can be pricey on weekends and holidays.

Food was very good but service very unorganized and find for the money is ok but will not eat there alot especially if on a schedule. But overall the food was very good and the atmosphere is relaxed kind of like visiting the east coast i guess. We get to it eventually attitude. Lol.

Had a great Christmas Dinner here. I was surprised how many people go there for Christmas but after our experience it is understandable. Good food, variety and no washing dishes. The price was a bit steep but overall was worth it. When booking for any holiday, make sure you give them lots of notice as it fills up fast.

I love the Mandarin chain but this one seems to do a little more to keep you happy. There is an air of immediacy where the staff is trying to greet you, serve you and bill you inside of 45 minutes. However, there have been occasions where dining is encouraged as long as you are buying drinks. The food continues... More

I went to see if the restaurant had got any better from the last time I was there. The only thing I could see was the price was outrageous for dinner. It certainly is not worth 32. to eat there. The food was the same, no changes there.
