Finding a Korean specialty diner outside of a university metropolitan area is unusual so I was delighted to discover this delicious Korean Jampong soup in a Chinese cafe. Jacqueline, the waitress, was prompt and courteous as she offered me extra dinner portions the meal! The availability of beer & liquor for beverage service is a nice offering. Thanks for the...

For over 20 years the Mandarin house has been in business in some locations or other in the area. The food has always been top notch when you order of the menu. I always avoid the buffet but that's just my opinion..my wife likes it. It is classic Americanized Chinese food.

We order a lot of take out from here and it always consistent. When we eat inside we order off the menu not the buffet. The portions are huge and its always fresh and tasty.

Was told they have a huge buffet and its so good, no way! Buffet consists of only a few dishes , would've been just as much to just order right off the menu. Buffet food was cold and looked old will never return again

The Mandarin House is not stingy with their portions. No matter what you choose off their menu, your meal will be complemented by a choice of egg roll or crab rangoon, egg drop or hot and sour soup, and steamed or vegetable fried rice. And the portions themselves almost guarantee you'll be leaving with a take out container. Located in... More

I have eaten here regularly for around 24 years both eat in and take out. They serve great food at a great price from 0 to $10.00 , the service is fast and friendly. It is wheelchair accessible which is important to me. A nice touch is that their take out containers are microwavable and reusable . If you get... More

Very nice buffet with a lot of choices. Restaurant is very clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Such a surprise that every Mother was given a box of tea bags for Mother's Day.

New location, now with a small buffet, but the food is still yummy. Best Mongolian Beef in the Tri-City area. Food is better on the menu than on the buffet, but you can't go wrong with ordering from the menu.
