  • the food is fatty and salty.Still the price is ok for the kids. took the kids and they liked it and we told them to wait a bit and add some extra ice cream so we get $$ worth. I wouldn't call it quality but its awright for kids.

  • Mandarin is totally unfair to it's competitors.

    The Mandarin buffet dining experience is so much better in every aspect than all the competition it's a mystery to this seasoned diner how the others survive. The Mandarin experience is so clearly superior that even many alleged local fine dining establishments could learn much about dining hospitality from a visit to Mandarin because this is where their customers are learning too.

    From reservation making (always essential on weekends and holidays), to the palatially impressive entrance welcoming the guest into this temple of the restaurant industry's best practices, the prompt and friendly greetings, the numerous "Welcome to Mandarin" from every employee encountered, and yet another cheerful welcome at the table by the server. It is all carefully scripted to create the thought in any first-time guest, "Hey, This is different. I think we are going to enjoy this meal." It's clear that the Mandarin strategy is to serve so well you become a life-long customer. After all, why would you go somewhere else for an inferior experience?

    Of course the real reason for dining at Mandarin is the opportunity to graze through the plentiful choices of Asian and North American menu standards. Most items are quite acceptable, many even very good. Basically, it's cooking designed to satisfy as many Canadians as possible. These are all standard menu items that could be had in many nearby restaurants, but not with all these choices, maybe not as freshly prepared nor done quite so well, nor offered in unlimited quantities.

    To me, It's really the many service details that sets Mandarin apart. As an example: a family at an adjoining table were celebration a birthday so out comes the candle-adorned cake and a hearty verse of "Happy Birthday", Then gather all the guests around the birthday celebrant and the server takes a photograph. Moments later he returns with an enlarged print set into a souvenir folder. Now that's exceptionally clever marketing. Other unique services include the constant attention to cleanliness, from the floors, to the buffets and even the continuously cleaned washrooms.

    So, if you have never had the Mandarin experience, prepare to have your buffet dining expectations reset higher forever more.
