The Manadarin in Barrie is my all-time favourite restaurant and the reason is that there is something for everyone there.

I think it was the best part of... More

Been to mandarin so many time I've lost count. Showed ip for a rare date with husband yesterday for lunch. Omg the smell was disgusting. I was informed they had just waxed the floors the night before. Guess they didn't ventilate at all. The restaurant was overcome with the smell of the floor wax. Even the employees were grossed out.... More

We much prefer smaller places to find true gems in barrie. If you are interested in some options and have time, feel free to contact me. Many things at mandarin just lack any kind of care or flavor, and the fried things are definitely all the same. Its just one big trough.

We visited the Mandarin at Thanksgiving. I had phoned to see what items they had that were Canadian. I love Chinese but my husband only eats Canadian Food + Won Ton Soup. Since they had Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy we made our first visit. The choices are staggering!! We plan to return at New Years and enjoy the Turkey... More
