My son could barely find anything he was willing to eat. Nothing special all generally bad Chinese food. Very dissatisfied and shocked because this is the first restaurant that we have visited that had such good trip advisor reviews but we found to be awful

Honestly I'll never eat in any Mandarin again. The food quality is moderate at best but open sharing of food with sneeze guards that don't prevent children contaminating the foodis a problem for me. May i suggest a Kids Section?? This would allow more choices...More

The WORST thing Mandarin could have done was discontinue serving crab legs. Not sure why this happened but no reason to go back. Not for that price. Last time there wasn’t even grilled steak at the grill. Quality has gone down. Too bad.

The order arrived in the time specified and the food was as hot as would be reasonable, considering the drive from the south end of Barrie to the north end. Almost everything was good with one notable exception. We ordered the sweet and sour pork...More

We had a large party of 45 and our waiter kept up really well with every one. Great food, always fresh and replenished quickly. The Restaurant is kept clean and all staff are friendly and welcoming.

It was a Saturday night so we had a 40 minute wait.....by the time we sat down we were famished :) Is it just me? or do others feel that so many choices encourage people to eat to excess? For all the choices displayed in...More
