This wonderful restaurant has closed after serving the area for 29 years. We ate there for 23 of those years and were never let down. Sad to see it go.

The road to Mandalay is not easy to locate. It's a driveway into a strip mall just west of Markham Rd. and north of Lawrence Ave. A large parking lot at the rear of the mall will accommodate your vehicle. The restaurant has a store front exterior but on entering you are welcomed by a warm inviting atmosphere. The tables... More

My family and I have been dining at Mandalay for many years and have never had anything but a great experience. The menu is varied and interesting, with unique offerings like bison and kangaroo if you are so inclined. The food itself is consistently delicious, from the appetizers to the desserts, and always beautifully plated. My only complaint is the... More

We went there tonight to celebrate our anniversary (we've been there quite a few times before, but not in the past year). It was a little disconcerting to read the bad reviews here, but we thought we'd give it a try. I'm glad we did. Food and service was very good. Would definitely go back again!

Had a nice dinner. Last visit, they gave us a coupon for 1/2 off a meal with purchase of one. Food was very good. But, busy tonight. Only 1/3 full, only one waiter. Hard for him to make everyone happy!

It is with much sadness that I write this review, as the Mandalay Restaurant used to be our most favourite restaurant in the city, and we frequented this restaurant often weekly. We have not been to this restaurant often in the past year as we have found the food and service to have declined greatly with every subsequent visit, but... More

I have lived in Scarborough 27 years & never went. Fine dining, great customer service. I had Pad Thai with shrimp & chicken. Very affordable. Will go back very soon!

We have been visiting Mandalay for many years and it continues to be one of the very best places to enjoy fine dining in Scarborough. A great menu and well prepared entries together with great service keeps us coming back. We really enjoy the variety of the menu and the freshness of the food.

This place is a little gem in scarborough. So nice nice not to have to travel downtown for quality food. The specials are always unique and fantastic, and everything on the menu is consistently awesome. Shout outs to the indian influenced penne, the venison is a must get when they have, and the spicy squid is incredible.

Description
Mandalay Restaurant, a warm, intimate and unpretentious dining establishment, has been catering to the discerning diners of Scarborough for over 25 years. Being in one of the world's most culturally diverse city, the intermingling of South East Asian cultures has given us the "traditional" fusion cuisines from which our eclectic fusion contemporary menu has evolved to cater to the diverse palates amongst us.

Our goal is to offer delectable foods infused with spices and aromas to please the palate, along with the warmth and hospitality in our service, and a warm casual place to enjoy it all.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
