We booked a table for 12 for family birthday. Food was great - a little slow on refreshing dishes that were low. But selection was excellent and desserts were delicious! Appreciate the senior's discount.

Stopped for a late lunch around 1:30pm. Food Luke warm and old looking. The fried rice was dark and dry. The black pepper steak lacking in pepper, bland. Chow mein over cooked with only 1 shrimp, which was dry and rubbery. Egg roll, cold. Loved the baked salmon, chicken balls, cold unpeeled shrimps and the blueberry and vanilla frozen yogurt.....

I have visited this restaurant several times with different group and have always found the food just average and at the dinner price cost $26 plus drinks per person can add up. I find the food not always the freshest. Sometimes it over cooked and sometimes its under cooked. So really hit and miss.

Went to the Mandarin this time as my fave low budget quick buffet In Ajax was closed for some reason for lunch the other day. I was hoping for good things as it seems it was $17 bucks a person for lunch! That's a lot compared to many of the others. The sushi found to be average and not as... More

So if you have ever been on a cruise and enjoyed the wonderful buffet, try to erase that memory...otherwise you won't enjoy your next visit to the Mandarin. This lunch buffet is severely scaled back and is mainly an all-you-can-eat cafeteria experience. No more fresh cheese, BBQ skewers or prime rib. You'll have to settle for the salad bar, sushi,...

The Mandarin restaurant in Oshawa is part of a first class Chinese buffet style chain. The food is kept re filled and the variety is top drawer. They usually have a few dimsum, sushi selections. The service is exceptional. You should be advised to reserve on weekends or holidays. If you are on a strict diet you will have difficulty... More

I would say that this is the best Mandarin and Chinese Buffet I have been to. They have so much variety and everything is fresh and tastes great! But make sure, if at all possible, to leave space for deserts cause they have plenty and again all is delicious. A little on the expensive side but well worth it. Great... More

The food is always great and there is a huge variety. You have to be careful you don't eat too much. Service is perfect every time. Nice that you can get reservations for a special occasion. I usually do lunch rather then dinner as this can be pricey on weekends and holidays.
