“Uninspired food trough”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

If your'e looking for something comparable to the mandarin, it won't be found here in terms of quality, variety and ambience. Quantity perhaps, service was fine, though I wouldn't return.

“Unimpressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

It's true, we went there for dinner within an hour of closing, so this review must be read with that in mind. Not a wide selection of food. What there was, was of only average quality. Breaded shrimp too heavily breaded, ribs were side ribs -- lots of gristle, roast beef not available. Service was good, although our first, soiled plates were never removed from our table. Cost was only $11.50 each, but it was not great value. Would not return.

“Lousy Cheap food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

If you are desperately hungry and on a budget this is just OK it is not Mandarin. It is not a bad place for lunch but I would not entertain guests there.

“Not as good as it was when it opened”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

We have gone to this restaurant since the first week it opened many years ago. It was AMAZING food at that time. Whenever someone had a birthday, or an event, that is where we would hold it. Over the years, the quality and taste has slowly declined in our opinion, to the point I just don't think we will go back again. :( Really disappointing since it was our favourite restaurant for years and now we make sure we visit the Mandarin when we need our "chinese fix". Hopefully they will see the reviews and make some changes so we can start going back again. :)

“Good buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

Good food, sometimes it's not as good though. Service could be better but its not bad. An average buffet restaurant.
