My husband , myself and a friend went to the Mandarin on Fairview Rd for New Years Day brunch. They open at 11:30 am till 3:00 for lunch. The only difference between the lunch and dinner buffets are crab legs and eggs and sausages for the brunch. The brunch was $21.00 but 20 % off for seniors (yay!!)The restaurant was... More

We always come to this restaurant when we are travelling home from something and want to reward ourselves with a great meal. This is the best of Chinese food restaurants in Barrie with a fabulous selection of hot fresh items. The price is a little high but well, it should be for the quality that you find here. Would always... More

Walked to Mandarin Buffet from our hotel, Fairfield Inn and Suites Barrie. We called ahead earlier and reserved a table for four at 6 pm. Glad we did, as the restaurant was packed, and there was a long line of people waiting for tables. Buffets are usually best when busy, and this was the case. The food was hot, fresh... More

We have started a tradition where our small family goes here to celebrate. This means nobody has to prepare the dinner and we can all have a break and enjoy. It was a full house here but with reservations we were seated promptly ( 15 min wait) it must be difficult in a buffet restaurant to keep the customers flowing... More

Succulent crab legs, a thick piece of medium-rare prime rib, sashimi salmon, tilapia, surf clams, plus tons of other delicious food are all there for as much as you can eat at this perennial favorite in Barrie. We came here with friends with kids. It is an easy relaxing place where everyone could just eat what they like. Reasonable service.... More

The food is good with a nice ambient, but the price is way to high for the overall quality. I would go back there again, but definitely not my favourite restaurant in Barrie.
