  • Frequent visitor. Food great although seems expensive but there is lots of variety. For a special evening out it's great. We personally prefer the Mandarin in Pickering, different ambiance, seems more open but the drive is too far on a full stomach

  • "Holiday Pricing" GREED $11.99 becomes $16.99 GREED.
    I was making plans to attend this restaurant on good Friday until I called to make reservations and was told about “Holiday Pricing” which increases the lunch buffet from $11.99 to $16.99. What is the thinking behind that? So they will most likely have far more than the usual amount of people coming in to dine and THEN they go and charge MORE! and call it “Holiday Pricing” Does the food/ingredients cost more that day?

    That's just plain gouging and GREED!

    The word holiday is not an automatic signal to raise prices!

    Well, we will not be supporting that!

    I hope you review this policy.

  • This was the first time we ordered home delivery. The fried rice was over cooked and dried out, the honey garlic spare ribs were hard and chewey chicken balls also dried out. All the dishes were only warm. These items must have been left over from the lunch buffet as we ordered around 5:30pm. I've eaten in there before and enjoyed it but would never call for delivery again.

  • I went to this restaurant for the one and only time i've ever been there. My boyfriend took me there, and i enjoyed my self so much, from the hot sake (though the sake glasses were very different, the fact that when i went to poor the hot sake out it dripped down my sake glass, and not into the cup) but other then that sake was amazing. The food, you just couldn't get enough off, all you can eat! Get your moneys worth! When i walked into the restaurant at first, i was speechless with the decorating. The celiing was soo unique, as it look like a a reall like cloud. Though ill admit, the waitress, all they said was , "Welcome to Mandarin " Way to much! And the food was great, though from a waitress that works in a REAL sushi restautant, the sushi they serve at this restaurant looked fake, i was very disapointed in the quailty.

    Other then that , a good tip would be to make resavations, beaceuse when we arivedit was just soo packed! Though it is worth the wait!

    I would diffently go back with more customers!!

  • Mandarin again, but in Oshawa one of the newer franchises. Food and service here seems to be better than the Pickering location. This may be due to the fact that this developed location is a great place for people in northern parts of Whitby and the northern redeveloped Oshawa to come to. Always seems to be that this location is always full. Food seems fresh and cooked ok. Same prices. Can not complain.

  • I think Mandarin is overrated, sure the desserts are the best for any buffet in the area but there are way better places that serve a similar selection with better quality and taste. Take Buffet World in Whitby the food is much better and the service comparable. Go to Mandarin only if your starving and can't make it anywhere else.
