There's not much variety of foods, but they definately taste fantastic! This place is great since that day we went, I wanted chinese food, but my friend wanted something else. We couldn't believe that you could order mexican food from the menu! And it's included in the cost so you don't have to pay! I recommended this place to several of my colleagues and friends; I think a lot of people will enjoy eating here.

The food here is limited and bland. I would not recommend eating here. I wonder if it has recently changed ownership?

On entering, we were mildly surprised to be asked to pay in advance, as there is a blanket charge of about $11.50 (including a soft drink), but our initial reservations were very quickly dispelled once we saw the wonderful array of choices on offer. Organised as a buffet, the food truly was splendid. The salads were fresh and exciting, the soups were delicious yet healthy and the choice of main meals was as good as anyone could wish. They even offered a selection of desserts for those who could get this far. We both concluded that every mouthful had been delicious. The service was friendly, efficient and unobtrusive.

This was our favor restaurant, but in question now!

When you are making a reservation, beware, you may hear "we are doing you a favour!"

While you are waiting for a table, observe the bar area. See how they handle the glasses. Particularly the special seasonal cocktail glasses. These were removed directly from a box then filled with drinks without being washed first.

Watch out by the food bar, you may notice staff cleaning and then pushing the spilled food back into the trays with the same rag.

Finally keep an eye out for the fortune cookies that may be rudely dropped in your direction.

Not being great fans of the buffet we chose here as it was next door to our hotel and after a bottle of wine in room we weren't driving anywhere. The hotel gave us a handy guide to St George restaurants and being a Sunday night in Latter Day Saint country, a number were closed. The Mandarin Buffet however was open and was good for a buffet with smaller serves that were regularly renewed with freshly cooked items from the busy kitchen. There was a good array of buffet items from typical Chinese to some Western fare. Good value at $23 all up for 2 adults, which included soft drinks. We inquired about wine or at least beer, but neither is an option, just soft drinks, served in plastic glasses.
