Had a great lunch at a good price with my mother ('seniors' get 20% off). For the two of us for as much food as we could eat plus a beer, it cost $44. Fantastic selection of sushi, Chinese food, fruit, seafood and deserts. There...More

Great place for getting together food for all tastes and one price for the buffet so perfect for everyone. They sing happy birthday and take your picture and give you a nice magnet picture for the fridge and nice memory

I really love Mandarin and so do my family. They have so many options and everyone can find their fav foods. The staff are kind and the restaurant is very clean. I would come back here again.

Good value for the money spent. The buffet was plentiful and the food was hot. The desserts were really delicious and they had a great variety

Good food, with a good variety. Sometimes staff doesn't keep the turnover going fast enough, but usually very good. Can't stand when they have crab legs - they are very good, but many customers fill their plates with up to 20 legs and leave nothing...More

Nothing much to add to the general view of Mandarin restaurants throughout southern Ontario. It isn't fine dining of course, but with seniors' discounts applied, a lunch buffet hits the spot. Food is sometimes better than at others, but by and large you can always...More
