We have been to several of their other locations and the Barrie one is pretty decent. Have never had an issue with the food or service, hot tables regularly topped up, rarely an empty station, and kept clean. Weekends and holidays you'd be wise to call ahead and make a reservation, the lines and waits for tables can exceed an... More

On top of the ridiculous price of $30.00 per person, for me I can't eat $30.00 of food in one sitting unless I want to gorge myself and feel ill for the rest of the evening, but with all the food I see out, the waste per day of food has to be substantial. With restaurants buying food at wholesale,... More

The food is always good and if they ever run out of something it's rare, and within minutes is generally stocked to go. The service is excellent. HINT: always make reservations as it's a popular spot and wait times can be long if you don't have a reservation.

I was so pleased to see this restaurant when I drove into town. After a long day of travel and work it was such a comfort to not have to try find somewhere to eat. My colleague was also pleased. The food is always hot and fresh. It has something for everyone. It is clean. The staff are friendly. You... More

Usually entering this restaurant tbe food is great but this location is definately scaled down compared to the other Mandarin restaurants. Decent variety but nowhere near the amount other Mandarin restaurants have.

Great food, lots of choices, quickly replenished buffet. Busy place though remember to book is you want an area for a big group. Price is decent considering the choices. Big difference between week price and weekend. I send my friends there yes.

This was our first time going to the Mandarin chain of restaurants. We were seated in a nice section of the restaurant. The area was very clean and the attentiveness by staff was overwhelming. With regards to the food, it was perhaps the best Chinese Buffet experience that I have been to. The food variety is spectacular and very fresh.... More
