I have come to the New Mandarin many times and will continue. I am not sure at all about the buffet as I am not a buffet eater. I have had the sizzling soup so many times and it's fabulous. The restaurant is nothing fancy for sure but I have always been treated very good and had the best food... More

No charm to this place, kind of run down and certainly not the cleanest restaurant, however if you can look past this youl find the pho soup to be pretty good, looked at the buffet and noticed limited variety. The service is kind of edgy and abbrubt, no smiles or small talk witch is fine for me on work day.... More

If you're looking for a tidy place with a unique atmosphere, this is not the place for you. New Mandarin is situated in a run down stand alone, small restaurant. Look beyond the walls and you'll find a very friendly, family owned place with good food. The lunch buffet was small but offered choices for a variety of pallets. How... More

Most people know this as a Chinese buffet, which it is (and not too bad), but the thing that draws me to this place is their Vietnamese food, specifically, their pho, along with a variety of other noodle soups. The staff is very friendly as well. It is really a surprise to find something like that up in the north... More

Hubby and I went and ordered off the menu. Apparently the buffet is only for lunch. We ordered the PuPU platter as an app--very good. We each had an entrée which was good but not fantastic. However, we did notice almost everyone was having the Pho which we have never tried but we ARE going back to try it. Looked... More

While all dishes are wonderful here, the pho is excellent! We always order the Vietnamese fried egg rolls also, these are to die for.

I went a couple times because my husband liked it but really disliked the limited buffet menu and the " chow mien" would make you cringe. But....ordered off their menu, their fried rice and egg rolls are awesome! There orange chicken is also very good. Did not like the chicken and vegetables though. The staff is friendly and it is...

Overall was a good experience... interesting buffet, but the staff really tried. I was impressed that they found their little niche in an oddly competitive area.
