  • I love buffets. I love being able to walk around and get as much or as little food as I want and being able to choose it from a large variety.

    I've gone to many different Mandarins in the GTA and this location is by far the best! The service is impeccable, the cleanliness is beyond impressive and the food is cooked/seasoned perfectly!

    I usually go for the salad bar, crab legs, and desert. This location has the best selection of deserts.

    People say Mandarin is pricey. But can you tell me a place where you can have all you can eat crab legs (actual decent-to-large sized, delicious ones) for less than 30 dollars?

    Whenever family comes to visit from out of town, we always bring them to the Mandarin. When there is a birthday or a celebration, we go to the Mandarin. When we are hungry, we go to the Mandarin.

    I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys eating!

  • Order: crab legs, everything

  • Sushi cost cutting and higher prices prevent me from returning.

    I'm not going to review the actual restaurant because I'm sure everyone has been here. The food is good of course, but Restaurantica has a HUGE downfal on its rating system. It doesn't give us a VALUE rating. Sure food can be great, but if it's 'not worth it' becuase the price is too high (The Keg) then we don't have a way to say so.

    One good about the Manderin is they don't cut food quality and change around recipes. They are the most consistent restaurant I have ever been to. However, Mandarin certainly loves to raise prices every 6 months it seems.

    When our Premier raised the minimum wage to $10, there was a large increase accross the board at most restaunts and Mandarin was no exception.

    The 7.99 lunch I remember is now up at $12 now? That's like a 50% increase?

    That's fine, but don't you dare cost cut on the food and specifically sushi.

    What did they do?

    Cost cut the sushi.

    There is now poor selection. poor rice in sushi, and no more philidalphia rolls. Out of all the things to cost cut they go after the cream cheese in the my favorite sushi. You can also no longer get raw fish on the sushi either.

    So the customer gets charged 50% more, just to have less of what he likes.

    Thus, this customer is down to going maybe twice a year now (as compared to twice a month when they were in their hayday).

    Dinner forget it. It's just WAY to expensive now. Not worth the price tag.

    Oh well. They lost my business and did it to themselves.. despite the good main dishes.

  • The food was good as always, especially the deserts, which are better than at most restaurants. Despite it being busy, no time was spent in getting seated.

  • Order: deserts, shrimp salad, beef, scalloped potatoes.

  • We usually like going to Mandarin for buffets because the food is generally fresh and the service is friendly. Our dinner experience was awful. None of the food was fresh - the vegetables were wilted and all of the meat tasted as though they had been defrosted and reheated. The food was not being refilled at a fast pace, so there were many long lulls in our dinner. The service which is normally so quick, was very slow. We sat and waited for our bill for over 20 minutes - and the dining room we were in was probably only half full. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience. For the amount of money they charge, I would hope for fresh food and better service.

  • Order: 2 dinner buffets, orange pop, beer
