We were a large group and waited a few minutes to be seated. After that we were served quickly and efficiently. The food was good and service was pretty good for such a large group. Lots of choice on the menu from traditional to a little exotic.

Great food excellent service. My family and I love to eat the WonTon soup and egg rolls. The server was very attractive to our needs. The rest room was clean and smelled fresh. My family and I will be coming back again.

It is awesome to finally find a great Chinese restaurant. I tried a big variety of things on the buffet and they were all delicious. This is way better than most buffets and definitely the best in the Opelika/Auburn area!

This has been a family favorite for years. The buffet is what they are most known for and it is certainly better than your typical "panda" and other cheap Americanized Chinese fast food which always boasts lots of sugar and fried flour to hide mystery chicken or some other curious meat. Mandarin buffet has real quality chicken, spicy Mongolian beef,... More

Hands down, this is the best Chinese in the area in my opinion. It's so good! I usually go when I can get the lunch buffet. I don't believe they offer the buffet at dinner anymore, bummer. The food is always good and fresh. I never feel like I am eating food that has been sitting under a heating lamp... More

We have been coming to Mandarin House for decades. We always have a lovely meal with perfect service. We never have the buffet so can not speak to that. We had the Kung Pao chicken and Moo shu pork today with plain steamed rice. We had the hot sour soup for two as a starter. There were huge tender shrimp... More

Wow, since the last time I visited this place has been redone! Much much cleaner, nicer decor, fresher appearance. Buffet selection is reduced from what it used to be but the quality of the food was much higher than my last visit!
