A few weeks back we went to London to visit family and I convinced my husband that we hadn't been to the Mandarin fora couple of years. Prices of course have gone up but we utilized our senior discount of 20% for 65 and older (they will check your ID!) which ended up costing just over $13. Plus taxes and... More

This buffet restaurant offers a huge selection of quality food. Clean table cloths and we'll managed for cleanliness, considering how many patrons are being served at once. The price is a bit hefty, and soft drink prices are added.... refills are extra, never a good thing

We went to eat for Mother's Day Dinner and what a disappointment! We were the first table to be seated in the room, yet parties that were arriving after us were receiving their drinks far ahead of all of us. The food was bland, greasy, and disgusting. Even my 4 year old (who isn't picky and loves Chinese food), told... More

Mandarin is always a safe bet. You wait quite a long time (we were walk ins so make a reservation!) a little pricy but good!

Our family has been to the Mandarin many, many times over many years. Every experience is exceptional! Delicious food, attentive staff, lovely atmosphere. The only down sides we've noticed are the lack of clam chowder at the lunch buffets (which used to be a staple), and on our last visit, they had replaced the chicken teriyaki, which was a disappointment....

We brought a mountain of takeout from here and I found it very average. Very oily and expensive for Chinese takeout.

Very disappointed. We've been to many buffets and this one made us feel like animals at a trough. The cooked Asian food was mediochre at best. The roast was exceptionally fatty. Service was great, but I doubt we'll return.
