I have a very picky eater in my family, so this place suits all of our needs. Everyone always finds food that they enjoy, not to mention the food is always hot, refreshed and presented well.

What a choice! Everything Canadian Chinese restaurants have been expected to produce with many many extras added in. Grandsons appreciate french fries and pizza.

Been to mandarin so many time I've lost count. Showed ip for a rare date with husband yesterday for lunch. Omg the smell was disgusting. I was informed they had just waxed the floors the night before. Guess they didn't ventilate at all. The restaurant was overcome with the smell of the floor wax. Even the employees were grossed out.... More
