After making me reorder because of their mistake, they made me wait for almost an hour for my order, and didnt even apologize. This is my first time to order from them, thank you for that awful experience!More

Lovely appealing buffet. Clean and well maintained. Buffet constantly refreshed and maintained. Well presented and appetizing for sure. The meat station featuring roasted meat is disappointing. The carver only slices off a child size cut and ignores you if you ask for another slice. Expensive...for what you really eat. Go on your birthday then you meal is free!More

Just finished our annual Christmas luncheon for 25 people. This a great spot that is well set up for large groups. We were welcomed promptly at our assigned time. Table was ready with lemon water for everyone. Waitress quickly asked for drink orders. The extensive...buffet has something for everyone from soups, salads, vegetables, meat , chicken and fish to tasty desserts. This is great value for the cost and the guys live being able to load up their plates. We return here every year. There is lots of parking.More

My friend and I enjoyed a gift meal from the President. Thank You. The food was just as wonderful as ever, but arriving 20 minutes late due to traffic and weather conditions, I was not greeted nor acknowledged by any wait staff. My hot towel...was sitting by my plate, cold. I would really have appreciated a drink, but no one came near me. I did enjoy the food, but the lack of service took away from what was meant to be a great experience. Thank You Mr. President but cut back to service for whatever reason, should be unoticeable to your guest. I am happy to have enjoyed the Old Mandarin!More

Very nice place, beautifully designed comfortable with good service. Peking duck is on the dry side, but skin crispy and tasty.

We went there for my mom’s boyfriend’s birthday dinner. It it wonderful that they offer a free birthday dinner! Our server Mark and his partner in room D were great! They were friendly and very pleasant. Quite efficient and gave excellent customer service.

Pretty sure you need to contact the restaurant directly, not on Trip Advisor
