Yes, it's small, but you will find everything you want and the quality is the best. All the buffet trays are made to order; as soon as something runs out, another is replaced, pronto, hot and fresh. Their seafood dishes are excellent. My friend loves their crab Rangoon. I rave about the butter salmon and butter shrimp and clams. String... More

I always read reviews but don't look to much into, this place the reviews where on point. When they said small buffet they weren't kidding. What they lack in quantity they made up in quality. FOOD WAS AWESOME! Kids & myself loved it. Very family friendly, waitress was very hospitable, recommended and will be going again!

If you like Buffett style restaurants then Mandarin Buffett is certainly worth the trip but go during the weekdays for lunch or dinner because the weekends are extremely busy and the customers can be quite hostile when they're hungry.

Lots of appetizers, fresh fruit, desserts,and ice... More

Prices can't be beat...but if you're looking for the typical Americanized Chinese food appetizers and fare (chow mien/chop suey) you won't find it here. This is a buffet ONLY. LOTS of choices (including little necks and mussels) and the food is quite tasty. You can NOT leave this place hungry!

Nice buffet, good options for lunch/dinner & they serve alcoholic beverages. You can go with friends, family or even kids. There's a small raw bar, sushi and hot buffet. Weekends are packed, so plan on a wait. Enjoy!!!
